    Oh yeah... Those mountains that wrap around the park are just something else... It's the only Disney park that feel truly exotic thanks to them.

    It looks so similar to the other Lodge hotels here. I think I'll stick to the Hollywood Hotel for my visit.

    It's the true "no lines" park. Seems like most everything is a walk on except for holiday seasons. That would be cool.

    Hong Kong Disneyland will close Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters on August 31st, as Ant-Man will open to the public by next year.

    The amazing thing is that they keep adding new attractions to the park that opened too small, but the attendance continues to fall. The economic & political realities are really working against this park that probably has the most beautiful setting of any Disney park. It's a shame. I really don't think Hong Kong Disney will ever succeed.

    Safety Video - Hong Kong Disneyland Resort:




    5S is the name of a workplace organization method that uses a list of five Japanese words: seiri, seiton, seiso, seiketsu, and shitsuke. Transliterated into Roman Script, they all start with the letter "S". The list describes how to organize a work space for efficiency and effectiveness by identifying and storing the items used, maintaining the area and items, and sustaining the new order. The decision-making process usually comes from a dialogue about standardization, which builds understanding among employees of how they should do the work.

    It was. Not sure if it still is, but it was definitely supposed to open in 2018.

    There's not that much info out there on it. I know Buzz has closed, not sure if there's any rumors on a timeline, but Disney sure hasn't been giving any info on this project.

    Heck, I actually like that better than the ride's film, which I thought seemed weak.
