I think Disneyland Hong Kong will only start profiting once Phase II is built (whatever they're building)... Anyways, the only cool thing about Disneyland HK is that it is based on Disney's original park plans and collaborates the best things of all the existing Magic Kingdom parks. If it weren't for that, it'd be too small mind you its missing Frontierland and Mickey's Toontown Fair.

Rare eagle could be scared away by Disney fireworks
Chester Yung, Hong Kong Standard
August 10, 2005

Disneyland's nightly fireworks and laser shows at Penny's Bay are expected to attract a lot of visitors, but environmentalists warned that they could also scare away a rare bird species that breeds in the area.

A nest belonging to a white-bellied sea eagle - a species so rare that only 10 to 20 breeding pairs are thought to inhabit Hong Kong - has been found virtually on the doorstep of the Disney theme park.

An Agricultural, Fisheries and Conservation Department spokesman said Tuesday the species had been discovered in Pa Tau Kwu in north Lantau.

He said the fireworks might have a "minor impact" on the habitats.

Yu Yat-tung of the Hong Kong Bird Watching Society said the government was reaching a premature conclusion by making the claim.

He said the species is sensitive to human disturbance and fears the fireworks might cause the parent sea eagles to abandon their young.

The possibility was mentioned in a 2000 environmental impact assessment report by the Environmental Protection Department, which stated the theme park's fireworks may result in "a disturbance to the white-bellied sea eagles, leading to possible site abandonment or breeding failure as a worst-case result."

Despite the department's confidence, "we worry this threat will prove true," said Yu, adding that the birds are extremely sensitive to disturbances.

Disney has begun a series of firework rehearsals that end Monday.

The displays will become a nightly feature when the park opens September 12.

"It is too early to draw a conclusion. We have to look at the long-term impact, which can be reflected by their breeding rate," said Yu, adding that the society had observed a drop in the species' fertilization rate in recent years. "According to my understanding, there was no breeding of white-bellied sea eagles last year," he said.

The first recorded sighting of the eagles in Pa Tau Kwu was considered "the most significant finding" of the avian survey in 1999 when the department conducted its environmental impact assessment on construction projects planned for the theme park and related infrastructure.

The report said Disneyland's operations had the potential to disturb the birds through noise and light from its fireworks and laser shows, transportation noise and operational plant noise.

World Wide Fund for Nature Hong Kong senior conservation officer Alan Leung said the impact of the fireworks "cannot be underestimated" and urged the government to monitor the effect on the birds.

"If necessary, Disney should adjust the frequency as well as the location of the fireworks to minimize the disturbance," he said.

A department spokesman said no fireworks would be launched within 800 meters of Pa Tau Kwu to minimize disturbances to the birds, and said the department would monitor the situation.

The white-bellied sea eagle is about 75 centimeters long and can be found in Tolo Harbor, Mirs Bay, Port Shelter, Hong Kong Island and Lantau.

It ranges from India and Sri Lanka, as far east as New Guinea and as far south as Tasmania. In the mainland, it is found only in Guangdong and Fujian.

Green groups keep up pressure on Disney
Gavin Bowring and Chester Yung, Hong Kong Standard
August 13, 2005

Environmentalists continued to lambast Hong Kong Disneyland Friday even though the fallout from its fireworks tests fell within permitted limits.

According to the results submitted to the Environmental Protection Department Friday, the noise levels during the fireworks rehearsal on August 8 reached 53 decibels compared with 48.7 decibels the previous day. The maximum level was 55 decibels.

As for air pollution, the highest measurement of respirable suspended particulates (RSP) on August 8 was 26 mg/m3, well below the statutory RSP criteria of 180 mg/m3.

The survey was conducted in response to a request by the EPD after results from a fireworks trial in May were criticized as being flawed.

However, critics insist the tests are inconclusive over the long-term for accumulated air pollution.

"The readings were measured under weak wind, and the analysis spanned just one day," said Mei Ng, director of the Friends of the Earth.

Ng accused Disneyland of seeking to fulfill only the minimal requirements.

Disneyland came under fire from residents of Discovery Bay and Peng Chau over what they regarded as excessive noise and smoke from the May fireworks tests.

The Islands District Council received 31 complaints after the trials.

"I still have worries that air quality in Discovery Bay and Tung Chung will get worse. Will we continue to explode these pollutants if it does?" Ng asked.

Ng described exploding fireworks as something from the 19th century.

"This is the 21st century," she said. "Why can't we look at other alternatives, such as more eco-friendly fireworks technology? Surely, equal entertainment can be achieved with zero pollution," she said.

Ng's call follows The Standard report on August 1 that Hong Kong Disneyland is reluctant to introduce the more environmentally-friendly fireworks used in California under an agreement with the US state's pollution control authorities.

These "air-launch" fireworks use compressed air and cleaner gunpowder that reduce noise and air pollution levels caused by fireworks by up to 60 percent.

Ng said that Disneyland officials are "hiding behind their non-commitment of comparing the technology of California with Hong Kong.

"How can Disney, as a multi-national company, maintain double standards?

"This only demonstrates their minimal regard for social responsiblity," Ng said.

Ng stressed that Hong Kong people should be informed of the different technologies involved, as well as the costs, and that a decision should be left to the citizens themselves.

"Furthermore, the government, as a major investor and shareholder in this venture, should explain to the public whether or not it agrees with Disneyland's minimum standards compliance," Ng said.

"This isn't Paris or Tokyo or California," Ng said. "The park is based alongside highly densely populated communities in an area that is already extremely polluted."

Disneyland put to the test during rehearsals
Wendy Leung, Hong Kong Standard
August 17, 2005

Five thousand "visitors'' - made up of Disneyland staff and their families, business partners and contractors - braved the heat and damp Tuesday to put the Penny's Bay theme park through a dry-run rehearsal ahead of its grand opening September 12.

Guests arriving in the morning were greeted by Mickey and Minnie, who were immediately swamped for photo sessions.

"I'm so excited to be here for the first-day rehearsal,'' chimed one little girl. "I just want to see Mickey and Minnie.''

The rehearsal period will last almost four weeks to ensure all the rides and other attractions are ship-shape for the opening, Disney managing director of operations Bill Ernest said.

All rides, shops and transport facilities were up and running Tuesday. To make the rehearsals as realistic as possible, the park will operate for the full opening hours of 10am to 9pm. The nightly fireworks start at 8pm.

Monet Maelle from France said the Hong Kong Disneyland is much smaller than the one in Paris, "but the Space Mountain is very exciting. The souvenirs and food are cheaper.''

The Ma family was very satisfied with the service of Disney staff. "The waiting time of the rides is not too long. The staff are very nice and the atmosphere inside the park is very good. We will stay for the fireworks show before leaving,'' Mr Ma said.

The Mok family, though, expressed disappointment, saying the park is too small.

Others complained some of the washrooms around the Inspiration Lake were messy. "There was toilet paper all over the floor,''one woman said.

Disneyland 'not delivering' on its green promises
Wendy Leung, Hong Kong Standard
August 24, 2005

Hong Kong Disneyland will not be quite "cut off from the rest of Hong Kong," environmentalists say.

Mei Ng, former director of Friends of the Earth, said Thursday that Disneyland is promising too much and under-delivering.

She was referring to Disney's promotions saying that visitors will find themselves "cut off from the rest of the world" once inside the theme park.

"Disney used such glorified words in the beginning," Ng said. "In 2002, it promised to camouflage unsightly fixtures such as chimneys, and said it would create a natural green buffer zone around the park."

Chu Hon-keung, of Friends of the Earth, said aircraft are still visible from the park, as are two buildings and even the Penny's Bay CLP Power plant. There is also a construction site next to the park, Chu said.

Hong Kong Disneyland spokeswoman Esther Wong said Disneyland, in principle, is "a fantasy land."

"We promise our guests will enter the world of fantasy. Through our entertainment and facilities, we will provide a magical environment and deliver the promise everyday," she said.

But, on a more prosaic note, Friends of the Earth members said after visiting the park on its final rehearsal day that the theme park should use fewer plastic food containers and provide more recycling bins.

Disney's Wong would not say if the park would heed this advice, but maintained: "We value the issue of environmental protection. We always look for opportunities to minimize waste."

The park's five self-service restaurants use degradable plastic food containers, and recycling bins are easily accessible to guests, Wong said.

But Chu said that Disneyland, as a multinational corporation trying to present a strong corporate social responsibility image, should reduce waste in all ways possible and encourage visitors to be more environmentally friendly.

In a report submitted to the Environmental Protection Department earlier this month, Disney expects its daily waste to be 20 tonnes from catering facilities and 100 kilograms from the fireworks displays. The company will provide the department with a monthly waste audit after the park opens September 12.

HK companies unveil plans to increase HK Disneyland's attraction
24 August 2005

HONG KONG, Aug. 24 (Xinhua) -- Hong Kong companies of different industries on Wednesday announced plans which help increase attraction of Hong Kong Disneyland.

Cathay Pacific Airways said that it will fly some 600 journalists to experience Hong Kong's attractions and the opening ceremony of Hong Kong Disneyland.

Those reporters will come from 19 Cathay Pacific destinations including Beijing, Manila, Tokyo, Sydney, New York and some other cities.

To help bring in more tourists and conferences to Hong Kong, the airline has created special Disney tour packages available to overseas visitors to attract them to the city. Deals include return airfares, hotel accommodation and park entrance.

Cathay Pacific General Manager Marketing Charlie-Stewart Cox said that Disneyland will add to Hong Kong stature as a world-class tourist destination.

At the same day, Lee Kim Kee, a worldwide famous brand name for Chinese sauces, announced an alliance with Hong Kong Disneyland.

Lee Kim Kee said that it will provide a variety of savory sauces whilst also featuring new sauces created especially for Hong Kong Disneyland.

Minibuses protest at Disneyland route denial
Wendy Leung
25 August 2005
Hong Kong Standard

Minibus drivers Wednesday threatened to cause road chaos on the opening day of Hong Kong Disneyland if they are not allowed to take passengers to the theme park.

They also accused the government of colluding with the big transport companies, thereby forcing Disneyland patrons to pay more than they should to get there.

Accusations came during a protest "slow drive" from Sham Shui Po to Wan Chai by more than 20 minibus drivers Wednesday. Disneyland officially opens September 12 and to date the government has only granted transport franchise licenses to buses, taxis and the Mass Transport Railway Corporation. Nonfranchised buses are allowed into the area if chartered by tour groups.

"I cannot see any other reason except discrimination," said Lai Ming- hung, chairman of an alliance representing a group of minibus operators.

"Even nonfranchised bus are allowed to enter Disneyland. This is grossly unfair," Lai said.

"Obviously, the government is in cahoots with the business sector. The interests of citizens are being sacrificed as the fares proposed by minibus drivers are cheaper than those being charged by bus companies. Patrons to the park are being forced to pay more."

The fare set by City Bus for the run from Yau Tong to the theme park is HK$38. Lai said the alliance had proposed a fare of about HK$25.

A Transport Department spokeswoman said a request from the alliance had been received and was being studied.

"Certainly, we are not discriminating [against minibuses].We will look at the traffic situation and consider actual traffic demands after Disneyland's opening on September 12," the spokeswoman said.

To avoid traffic chaos, she said, the department is concentrating on mass transport systems such as the MTR and franchised bus companies.

"Taxis provide personalized services for tourists who are not familiar with Hong Kong's roads, while nonfranchised buses are hired by travel companies for particular tours," the spokeswoman added. However, the arguments did not please Lai who said the alliance will continue to fight for the right to serve Disneyland.

"We are even prepared to hold another protest on the opening day of Disneyland if the department does not give us a satisfactory response."

Hong Kong Disneyland spokeswoman Esther Wong refused to discuss the threat, saying the Transport Department is responsible for all transport arrangements with regard to the opening of the theme park.

Mickey is friendly but queues take forever
Rain failed to deter more than 30,000 visitors who flocked to Disneyland's charity day Sunday, eight days ahead of the grand opening September 12.
Wendy Leung, Hong Kong Standard
Monday, September 05, 2005





Rain failed to deter more than 30,000 visitors who flocked to Disneyland's charity day Sunday, eight days ahead of the grand opening September 12.

Many had bought their tickets several months ago.

Hong Kong Disneyland group managing director Don Robinson said the event will raise about HK$9.7 million for local charities.

Anita Wong said her family wanted to see how Hong Kong Disneyland compared with Paris Disneyland, which they visited a week ago.

"The Mickey Mouse at Hong Kong Disneyland is much friendlier than the one in Paris," said Wong, adding that she was pushed away from a Paris Mickey Mouse when she asked for a photograph.

Wong and her children found the Lion King and Winnie the Pooh attractions were " surprisingly good," even though the family had to wait more than two hours to enjoy them. "It's worth the wait," she said.

Chris Chan, a middle school teacher accompanied by his girlfriend, however complained that "the park is rubbish."

"We had to wait for more than two hours for Buzz Lightyear. There are also no clear instructions on how to queue up. Everyone around is confused and keeps asking `which line should I be in?"' Chan said.

"The food is also terrible and there was a long queue."

"They [the Disneyland management] totally underestimated the number of visitors when they designed the restaurants and rides."

The theme park can cater to 30,000 visitors at a time, Disney said. All public holidays and some weekends are already fully booked for September.

Disneyland public affairs manager Esther Wong said the number of visitors "is within estimation. We hope our guests will be getting more familiar with the facilities."

The restaurants had prepared 10,000 meals an hour, Wong said.

She added that Disneyland carries out onsite surveys of guests to see if the park is operating properly.

After two weeks of dry-runs, the theme park added 100 tables and 600 chairs to its restaurants Sunday.

Robinson said that guest behavior in Hong Kong is different from the United States, which caused the long lines. For example, Hong Kong visitors are more interested in taking photos than Americans, he said.

Bank worker Carol Lo said she is a big fan of Disney and did not buy the tickets with charity in mind.

She described the morning traffic as "horrible," adding "it was really packed in the train and we had to wait a long time."

MTR Corp public relations officer Teresa Pun said the train from Tsing Yi to Tung Chung broke down at 9am, and passengers had to get out and wait for a replacement.

"We dispatched more manpower to manage the crowd during peak hours," she said.

That's a strange article, I never heard something like that about Disneyland Paris, and I'm convinced that a Disney staff member doing that would get fired...

I also find quite strange the Wong family don't say a word about the fact there's MANY more rides in one of the two Disneyland Paris' parks than there are in the HK's park (Big thunder mountain, Pirates of the Carribean, Indiana Jones, Phantom manor, Star tour, etc...)

Anyway, the park looks very nice on all those pics. The train station and trains look awesome too.

Is the ride "Buzz lightyear" good? I know it will open in DL Paris next year but never heard about it before.
