    I know same news from a different source SCMP, at least you get a different slant from what HKDL is reporting:

    Apple Daily
    Fraudulent Disney tickets on sale

    More than 100 void tickets to Hong Kong Disneyland purchased by criminals with fake credit cards were believed to have been on sale to the public at discounted prices. Some uninitiated buyers were refused entry to the park and taken to the police by plain-clothed park security officers. Victims blamed the theme park for failing to publicise the scam beforehand.

    That certainly is a different slant, but one that I think unfairly places most of the blame on HKDL for people essentially buying cheap tickets off scalpers. At the end of the day, people need to take responsibility for their own actions.

    Welcome to Hong Kong, people here like to blame everything (especially the large crop / US Firms / Mainland Chinese Firms. Japan is the only exception because HK people likes Japanese products crazily, that's why you can see some HKDL merchandise items got a "Made in Japan" sticker on it) and they never think they were wrong.

    If you know more about the characters of Hong Kong people, then you will understand why HKDL fails.

    Being a gweilo, I didn't want to submit that. I'm glad you did pennysbay! But you forgot to add our own Government. They have to fix all the problems here. If they don't....well, the world would end wouldn't it?!?

    HKDL fails miserably because it is way TOO SMALL.

    Hong Kong was heavily influenced by Japanese Culture particularly in the 1980's. A majority of the Hong Kong Pop Songs during the 80's were cover version from the very popular J-Pop (Japanese Music). But as times goes by, the influence of Japanese culture diminished, particularly with the rise of Korean Pop Culture. Since the Asian Economic Crisis of 1997, most of the Japanese Department Stores in Hong Kong collapsed, closed down for business or changed hands, e.g. Sogo Hong Kong and Seibu Hong Kong are now owned by Hong Kong Owners, Daimaru Hong Kong, Tokyu Hong Kong, Matsuzakaya Hong Kong, Isetan Hong Kong, Mitsukoshi Hong Kong all closed down.

    A Japanese Label doesn't always guarantee a Success. Furthermore, "A Good Brand Name doesn't always guarantee a Success"
