    So... I'm assuming that's a picture of the teeny model of SDL?

    If so, what on earth do we think the diamond shape in the upper-right is?

    How I would love to see the working scale model that's currently under wraps in Glendale... but, yes, Timmy's pic is just the enigmatic massing model from D23. On this giant version, the diamond area looks like the park utilities power grid:

    It looks like a parkinglot on the left corner of the park. Semes like a bad place to have it.
    I hope they will have parkinglots with many floors to save space for future park expansions.

    Thanks much, RS!

    And to Timmy, if it is a parking lot, then it'll likely be placed for convenience to both the park and hotel, yes? Perhaps it is a good place in relation to the site of the future hotel.

    Which reminds me, do we know anything about the (I assume there will be a) main hotel?

    That leaves the first two characters 奇幻 (qhun). 奇 literally means unique, but can extend to 奇妙 (qmio; meaning whimsical, wonderful, magical, or even fantastic!) The second character 幻 literally means illusion, but can extend to 幻想 (hunxiǎng; meaning fantasy, imagination.) Note: Fantasyland at HKDL is also translated to 幻想世界 (Fantasy World).

    So combining the two means whimsical-fantasy. I think this is a good translation as it added a fantasy component to the name.

    Source (in Chinese): ?? ??-??,?,?,?-?-
    At least it's not the Palace of the People's Republic I thought the reasoning was maybe they didn't want to have a monarch at this Magic Kingdom.
