    Pirates Set to Invade Victoria Harbour!

    Disney just contacted us with a very important announcement:

    Ahoy There Matey!

    Pirates Set to Invade Victoria Harbour

    An Event Not to be Missed!

    Rumor has it that a large pirate ship will invade Victoria Harbor on this Thursday, April 12 at around 10:00am.

    While the origin of the ship is unknown, it is believed to have sailed from the Caribbean. Final destination is either World’s End or Hong Kong Disneyland – the latter being more likely.

    Hong Kong public is invited to witness the arrival of the mysterious ship and see the pirates at work - at your own risk! The best vantage point would be along the Tsimshatsui waterfront – Jetty Number 3 outside Hong Kong Cultural Center near Star Ferry bus terminal.

    The Pirate Ship is expected to dock at the Disneyland Resort Pier in the afternoon and Mr. Bill Ernest, Executive Vice President and Managing Director of Hong Kong Disneyland Resort is expected to make a special announcement with regard to the pirates’ arrival.

    Stay tuned as this mystery unfolds………

    For more info, visit the Source of course!

    ORDDU: And just when you think it's safe to have pirates invade your port and abduct your prettiest witch, there comes THIS little tidbit from the another web-footed site known as Laughing Place...

    ORWEN: According to their news section on their Home Page--which we just finished conjuring up inside our crystal ball--the Hong Kong Government isn't willing to pay for the rumored Pirates of the Caribbean attraction--at least not now.

    ORGOCH: Talk 'bout throwin' a dang monkey wench inta the mix!

    ORDDU: It would seem that SMALL WORLD may be the last new attraction for a while, according to the article over on Laughing Place. It also mentioned that Imagineers are having to scramble around to come up with different attractions for the park's future--presumably cheaper ones than the proposed Pirates of the Caribbean attraction.

    ORWEN: Now, of course, this article we read could be completely wrong--and if that forthcoming announcement from Bill Ernest turns out to be that there IS a Pirates of the Caribbean attraction coming to Hong Kong Disneyland, after all, well...somebody on that other web-site's gonna' have a lot of 'splainin' ta do. Or can Disney go ahead and build a pirates attraction WITHOUT the backing of the Hong Kong government?

    I suppose they could finance it themselves if it came to that, but they'd probably still need government approval for the development application.

    I guess it really is anyone's guess at this point.

    Disney don't own enough of Hong Kong Disneyland to want to invest millions into a attraction on the scale of POTC.If the Hong Kong Govement isn't in on it its not happening.
