So, it's been done, and very nicely. I think in HK, they wanted to reproduce the original, just as the Japanese had requested direct translations for their park. Obviously, starting small allows the locals to return for the growth to follow, but risks offending the international traveler familiar with the other Disney parks around the world. Hong Kong - who is paying for this park - is apparently more interested in developing a local attraction for Chinese citizens, than a destination resort. The scale makes sense when appreciating that those 1 billion+ people do Not know a Disney park could be different. The old Disney TV showsjust now getting there proves that. All the parks have 'grown' on their local audience, who come to love them watching them develop. Mind you, none of this will impress international Disneyland travelers, but there are actually quite few of them; and the park does offer unique beauties for the connoisseur. HK is an amazing place, but a bit short on things like museums and such - they want to beef up the offerings to make that an even more impressive city with this project, but do not require that it be so massive to draw people to a swamp like central Florida did.
