This is it, the Hong Kong Disneyland expansion plan has been unveiled, with three "lands." Plans were announced today and you will find great artwork for each of the lands below! Basically, the three new lands are located on the Adventureland side of the park, Just to the west of the Jungle Cruise as you can see on the expansion map above. Contrary to speculation, there will be no giant Pirates of Caribbean land, no snow-covered mountain, but there will be a small Frontierland type of area with a mine ride, a Haunted Mansion with a different theme, and a Toy Story Playland exactly like the one we will have at Paris' Walt Disney Studios next year.


Also, you will notice that they still have a big space available for a future expansion on the left of the new Frontierland/Grizzly Trail.


Here are all the details with the official press release and picture in full size in the Disney and more article here:


Disney and more: Hong Kong Disneyland new lands announced officially with Artwork




With the addition of more than 30 new attractions, play and entertainment experiences, Hong Kong Disneyland’s total number of rides and attractions will increase by almost 50 percent and top one hundred. When completed, the expansion will increase HKDL’s physical footprint by approximately 23 percent; broaden the park’s appeal by adding more experiences for young adults; and place increased focus on universally-understood stories. Using Guest feedback as a guide, these three new themed areas will create memorable guest experiences, drive strong word of mouth and repeat visitation, and offer many unique only-available-in-Hong-Kong attractions that feature Disney’s immersive storytelling and innovative technology.


Grizzly Trail

Grizzly Gulch, Frontier Gold-Mining Town






The path along Grizzly Trail offers high-spirited frontier fun in an abandoned mining town called Grizzly Gulch, set amidst mountains and woods. Acording to legend, the town was founded August 8, 1888 – the luckiest day of the luckiest month of the luckiest year – by prospectors looking to discover gold. Bears have now started causing havoc at the Big Grizzly Mountain Mining Company.


Key Technology and Creative Elements

• Guests visiting Grizzly Gulch are part of the action, experiencing hands-on water features, massive geysers and various leaking structures in the abandoned town.

• Life-size Audio-Animatronic® bears set the story in motion on Big Grizzly Mountain Coaster, an adventure aboard a runaway mine train through town. Guests careen backward down an incline that propels them through twists and turns, before a launch sequence “blasts” the mine train out of the mountain.

• A Wild West stagecoach, an old time Jail House, and the world’s largest nugget of gold provide fun photo opportunities.

• Guests can relax with a Wild West refreshment at the old Saloon or shop for mining supplies and souvenirs at the Bear Necessities merchandise stand.



Mystic Point







Mystic Point is the site of mysterious forces and supernatural events in the heart of a dense, uncharted rain forest.


In Mystic Manor, home to an eccentric world traveler and adventurer and his collection of exotic international artifacts, strange things are afoot as an enchanted music box releases its magical powers, thanks to a mischievous monkey.


Key Technology and Creative Elements

• Inside Mystic Manor, a trackless ride system enables vehicles to move “freely” about the attraction as the story unfolds. Audio-Animatronic® figures and special visual and audio effects help tell the story of mystical phenomena.

• Within Mystic Point lies a beautiful garden full of relics and mythological figures, where guests discover a hidden world of illusions and mysteries that trick the eye.

• Guests can dine at the Adventurer’s Club amid a vast collection of unusual artifacts from around the world or purchase exclusive curiosities and collectibles at the Archive Shop.



Toy Story© Land

Disney·Pixar-themed Play Area for Kids of All Ages






Andy, the young boy from the Disney·Pixar Toy Story films, has left his toys unattended in this immersive and highly themed environment, based on one of Disney·Pixar’s most popular film series. While Andy is away, the toys come to life and play...and Guests are invited to join!


Key Technology and Creative Elements

• Oversized outdoor rides and photo opportunities allow Guests to experience the different perceptions of scale, and shrink to the size of a toy.

• One attraction includes a shuttle coaster which propels Guests along a U-shaped style track.

• A drop-style parachute attraction lets Guests join a “training mission,” plunging from a 25m tall tower.

• Guests will enjoy fun, immersive and interactive environments with life-size toys.

• A themed food kiosk provides a barrel of fun snacks and refreshments and Guests can shop for Toy Story inspired collectibles at the merchandise location.


Now, to all Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney Studios fans : Have a look again to the Toy Story Playland rendering above as the Toy Story Playland at the WDS will look exactly - or almost - identical when it will open in July 2010!


As for HKDL this expansion is not only welcome and necessary but also will bring new attractions unique to the park - Big Grizzly Mountain Coaster, with audio-animatronic Bears and a track that seems to be inspired by the one of Expedition Everest - or also new versions of grand classic ride - Mystic Manor - a Haunted Mansion mixed with the world traveler and adventurer theme of TDS Tower of Terror. It will be very interesting to discover all this when it will open in 2011-12!
