    well I think that's due to lack of land

    up until now they've been building Magic Kingdoms that have MORE land then Disneyland but I think Hong Kong might have less? so it makes since to try to follow through with plans from your smallest (and most condensed) version of your park and then crush it even more (hence why I'm suggesting that what they're doing with Pirates is a way to get around having to build both splash and pirates, it turns two rides into one)

    Maybe Jackie Chan could convince them to put in a Shanghai Noon stunt show that would be the main attraction for a Frontierland there.

    I think you have put WAY too much thought into this. As someone who lives and works in HK and has to read about the new park every day, I can tell you that all the gov't cares about is whether it makes money.

    As someone else on the forum already pointed out the gov't (and therefore the HK taxpayers) are the main shareholders in the park. Not to mention the gov't picked up the tab for all the supporting infrastructure - reclaiming the land, building the rail line out to the site etc

    You also need to remember that the HK park is designed for people who have probably not visited an international theme park before. So it's perfectly OK to not have all the rides and attractions the US park because the HK visitors have nothing to compare it to. At least that's the theory.

    Time will tell whether they are correct.

    Look.. it is the great "firewall" of china... they are censoring and blocking this site overthere....

    They want a sterotypical DL for themselfs... to stay in their country... to know want to explor the other countries....

    hence no fronteerland.. or IASW....

    I've heard that the Imagineers were told to revise the original 1953 plans for Disneyland for HKDL inspiration. That means a much smaller park anyway.

    I don't know about that but it IS based more on the origional Disneyland then any of the other parks have been (well WDW is based on Disneyland but they expanded things so they could use that bigger space for bigger paths)

    mostly because of lack of land (I think I've said this before) I think HKDL has even LESS land then the origional Disneyland but who knows (hey it's China they're so populated I'd almost expect them to be evicting appartment complexes just to fit this thing int here )
