    Re: HKDL Source's Chief Spy Update and Construction Photos

    Well, we'll see. How long did it take them to build IASW?

    Re: HKDL Source's Chief Spy Update and Construction Photos

    The problem also is the newspapers have been less than reliable with information about HKDL and Shanghai DL. I am highly skeptical until Disney announces it themselves.

    Re: HKDL Source's Chief Spy Update and Construction Photos

    While Mansion is very, very likely headed in HK's direction (think DL on the outside with more of a voodoo touch on the inside), there is NO WAY possible that it could open a year from now.

    When they finally announce it, you're still likely looking at 18 months or more before opening.

    As others have said before me, I am highly skeptical of all media reports. So far, we've had at least half a dozen "confirmations" of a Shanghai DL, and just as many denials from Disney. However, everybody assumed IASW from the start of the last construction, so who knows...?

    I first noticed the construction way back in September 2006, but that was my first opportunity to get there and see it. So at LEAST 20 months from groundbreaking until opening. The announcement was made in December 2006, and the opening was April 2008!

    See comments above, and I tend to agree with you. I have heard on the street that it may be Haunted, it might even be in a mansion, but it is not the Haunted Mansion we all want. Of course, that is just as much speculation as anything else. Hell, they could be putting in a new set of Super Toilets for all we know.

    Re: HKDL Source's Chief Spy Update and Construction Photos

    I'd be quite fascinated to know where the HK press gets its information about HKDL. It almost seems like they're just going to a site like Screamscape and posting whatever rumour makes an appearance as if it were confirmed.
