Great day today! All the expansions was approved by the HK government! Also the Frozen ride at the new Frozen area will utilize the same system as Shanghai's Pirates of the Caribbean according to a Hong Kong website.

We’re excited to share that our plans for a major expansion of Hong Kong Disneyland have officially been approved by the Legislative Council of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. Starting next year through 2023, we’ll be adding world-class attractions, entertainment and themed areas to bring to life some of the very best characters and stories of the Disney brand.

Included in our expansion plans are a “Frozen“-themed area transporting guests to the kingdom of Arendelle, a new Marvel-themed area with thrilling attractions and entertainment celebrating your favorite Super Heroes, and a new entertainment venue called Moana’s Village Festival with a lively stage show.

On top of all that, we’ll be transforming Sleeping Beauty Castle to showcase new daytime and nighttime spectaculars and entertainment experiences. There’s so much to do and see, and we can’t wait to bring you along on this journey with us.

Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for more expansion updates from Hong Kong Disneyland.

I am super impressed and looking forward to how this all turns out....eventually. :smile:

With HKDL and TDLR doing spectacular expansions with attractions and stuff during the next several years,
it makes me wonder what ShanghaiDLR might come up with, after Toy Story Land is built and open?

Not trying to rush things, but I am still curious. :?r

And, I am also curious as to whether Tokyo Disney will eventually announce a timeline
of some kind, for their version of Arendelle/Frozen in Tokyo Disney Sea? Now that HKDL
...has taken the lead in the same E-themed project?

:shockr:

I am planning to go on the 25th of march next year which is a saturday. It's the only day it looks like i'll be able to make it. How busy is the park on weekends or is it worth looking maybe trying to go on a friday instead of a tour of hong kong that comes with the trip.
