    He doesn't have it. As usual, this person just googles info off other sources and post them here regardless they are related to HKDL or not.

    A vaguely related possibility could be Disney extending their cruise line to Hong Kong. It seems unlikely though...

    Loomis, you think Disney will run the Disney Cruise line out here in Asia like they did in Orlando? I could see it sail to Tokyo,Shanghai, Taipei, Singapore and Sydney as a possibility. Could help bring more people to the park.

    Well, I'm not saying it is likely, but I'm just offering a possible connection between this story and Disney.

    I don't think Disney Cruises will work in HK at all. The lack of a casino and the resulting higher prices are just not Chinese people's cup of tea.

    I don't think the new Cruise Ship Terminal will benefit HKDL in anyway. It will make HK a more attractive cruise ship stop but whether the tourists that come to HK will want to visit HKDL or not depends on HKDL.

    Sad Re: New Cruise Terminal open for tender: Opportunities for HKDL/Walt Disney Company

    And the tour guide people on board ship. Remember the last BIG cruise ship that came here. "Don't bother going into town, the people are rude, the food is terrible, the museums don't match up to those in Shanghi, and the pollution is bad." Or something along those lines....
