ORWEN: Oh, ducklings! Us Cauldron girls just finished reading the latest update from Al Lutz about how Disneyland management is thinking about re-opening the Sleeping Beauty Castle walk-thru. Does anyone out there happen to know if the management types at Hong Kong Disneyland might be thinking of doing the same thing with their Sleeping Beauty Castle?
ORDDU: It would certainly make sense--assuming this rumor comes to pass. After all, we remember reading an article on MiceAge a while back, which suggested that there could be some consideration afoot for SOMETHING inside the Sleeping Beauty Castle in Hong Kong. But--at the time--management was waiting to figure out more about the particular tastes of its own guests over there. I suspect that was just a public relations cover up. Most likely they didn't wish to admit that there was no money in the coffers to spend on even a modest walk-thru attraction.
ORWEN: Well, whatever the case, Fantasyland over there needs a lot more fantasy. IT'S A SMALL WORLD will certainly help. But they also need more attractions that celebrate Disney's many fairytales and other magical adventures.
