Thanks. Mystic Manor is my favorite attraction in the entire park. It's full of special effects and very hard to photograph.
This park has an uncertain gloomy future. The political/social situation in Hong Kong will probably get worse. The most probable outcomes will undoubtedly result in continually less tourists going to the Hong Kong area for a long time. This park will never survive as a predominantly locals park.Hong Kong Disneyland feels effects of demonstrations | CNN Travel
For a park in the middle of a multi-million dollar transformation this can’t be good news. It’s a shame with all the unique offerings this park has but if the mainland takes a more direct hand in HK politics going forward and with Shanghai Disneyland being so successful what chances does HK Disneyland have in the future of staging a comeback?
I've been keeping an eye on it. Most hotels are down 40-70%. The HK Disneyland area is actually clear of any political mess, so much so that delegates have been moved to their hotels to make sure they aren't delayed for flights, etc. Japanese and Taiwanese tourism is still fine, it's just Chinese tourism that has been decimated (which was ~70% of their tourism).Just saw a report on CNBC concerning travel to Hong Kong. The travel industry said travel to Hong Kong was DOWN 27% in the third quarter. Their political problems have to be hammering Hong Kong Disneyland outside tourist attendance.
HKDL is already one of the least expensive (if not THE least) Disney properties to visit so I can't image they'd discount rooms. But if they do offer some sort of travel package discounts I may end up planning an impromptu China trip lol.Unfortunately, no discounts have popped up for HK DL, so it's not enough for me to jump in on it yet.
It's exciting to see another park reopening, out of the Disney and Universal parks I think that Japan will be next before the US parks

2046 is today...China's ruling Communist Party just announced new rules and laws, that for all intents and purposes, takes away any semblance of self rule from Hong Kong. The crackdown, on Hong Kong's limited autonomy & partial democracy, is on the near horizon.
