Hong Kong Disneyland Denied Theme Park Expansion by Government


Since the year 2000, Hong Kong Disneyland has reserved a 60-acre plot of land for potential expansion. According to Bloomberg, Hong Kong’s government has chosen not to renew their agreement with the theme park over the land, citing the current economic troubles in Hong Kong.

The agreement, which ends on Thursday, gave Hong Kong the option to extent the purchase. Hong Kong has noted that it would be ‘prudent’ for the theme park to focus on developing the theme park with the land they currently have so the government can use the 60-acres for housing.

Obviously, the theme park is disappointed that they will not be able to pursue their phase 2 land expansion. 60-acres sits just between the land amounts of Walt Disney Studios Paris and Disney California Adventure Park, so this plot of land could have easily served as a second gate for Hong Kong Disneyland.

This Friday, Hong Kong Disneyland will reopen to the public after its closure on July 18. Though it will be disappointing to know that we won’t see any major expansions to the park soon, we know that the improvements to the 15-year old park will still be incredible and make magic for guests!

Do you hope to someday see a second gate at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort? What would you like to see there? Be sure to connect with us on Twitter and Facebook to let us know!
