Ride Videos have been discovered.







Theme Story ( with my theme):
In Hong Kong Disneyland, right next to Ironman experience, by the Stark Expo, the new section has just opened to the public.
It is 'S.H.I.E.L.D. Science and Technology Pavilion', where S.H.I.E.L.D.’s latest technological developments are shown, and shows the guests how S.H.I.E.L.D. uses technology and science to protect our world.
However, there is a big emergency situation right now.
Arnim Zola, and his forces of Hydra is attacking Stark Tower (Ironman experience), and he also sent an army of Swarmbots to steal the 'data core', which contains highly classified information.
IMG_20171220_202258.jpg
I'm S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, trained in Busan, South Korea.

As an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., I can tell this is a simultaneous attack launched by Hydra. Tony (Ironman) is currently busy, trying to protect the tower, so Antman and Wasp arrived to help.
Your mission is to ride on to 'Dagger (D/AGR – the Defense/Assault Ground Rover)' and use the EMP Blasters on the vehicle to shoot the Swarmbots and defeat Zola.
Don't let data core fall into the hands of Hydra!

Oh, by the way...about me...





For a limited time, S.H.I.E.L.D. recruited new people to be an agent in Busan, South Korea.
I gladly answered the call and trained to be an agent.

At that time, I fought with Red Skull, Viper (Madame Hydra) and MODOK. Red Skull and Viper was captured, but MODOK managed to get away.
However, S.H.I.E.L.D. viewed me as worthy enough, so I became a new agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.




Currently, S.H.I.E.L.D. is recruiting new agents in Bangkok, Thailand.

^ Well, all those videos pretty much cover it, LOL! Thanks for posting them all.
Can't wait to see what the big "E Ticket" attraction is going to go in back there, eventually.

A reminder of what it's all going to (hopefully, eventually) look like.

I found a recent overhead shot of the area where FrozenLand is being built. And I noticed that what is probably the water ride layout, is not looking like the same layout as at EPCOT. What I can see.

Which makes it unique on it's own and not a true clone of the original Frozen ride!

...And the Kristoff's Sleigh Ride Coaster will be at the top of the clearing, there. Beside IAsW's show bldg..

So I haven't seen this mentioned, apologies if I missed it, but Hong Kong has joined Paris and Shanghai in having a paid-fast pass system. Winnie the Pooh and Space Mountain are the only two that have ever offered free fast-pass and will still have the fast pass machines. Strangely enough, Space Mountain will now be the only free fast pass exclusive ride in the park since it isn't on this new pass.

There seems to be two tiers with the highest tier converting to I think around $50:

Disney “Priority Special” Attraction Admission Pass allows guests to enjoy one-time priority access to three out of five selected attractions across the park.

Price:
- HK$249
Choices of Attractions:
Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Nano Battle!
Mystic Manor
Iron Man Experience
Mickey’s PhilharMagic

Disney “Priority Special+” Attraction Admission Pass allows guests to enjoy one-time priority access to all eight designated attractions across the park.

Price:
- HK$349 (Weekdays, except Public Holidays)
- HK$399 (Weekends and Public Holidays)
Designated Attractions:
Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Nano Battle!
Mystic Manor
Iron Man Experience
Mickey’s PhilharMagic
The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
Toy Soldier Parachute Drop
Slinky Dog Spin

Walk-up Purchase Locations: Main Entrance Ticket Booths, Pooh Corner and Expo Shop
(Hotel Guests may purchase at discounted price from Front Desk of the three resort hotels)

Pre-arrival purchase available exclusively online. Act now to enjoy convenient access to these amazing attractions!

Source

Alternatively, there's a one day and pass combo for the 3 out of 5 for $838 HK Dollars or the + pass for $938 weekdays, $988 weekends (so a saving of around $50).

It seems its included for hotels but not sure if that's per day or per stay. I'm assuming with walk up counters in the hotel for the new pass, it's just a one time gift.

Enjoy Attraction Priority Admission Pass for Your Selection
Hotels guests will receive the Priority Admission Pass to at least 1 park attraction, based on the type of hotel room booked. Guests of the three hotels staying in a Sea View Room will receive Priority Admission Passes to 3 attractions, and guests staying in a Kingdom Club Room of Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel will receive Priority Admission Passes to 4 attractions. Priority Admission Passes allow guests to enjoy priority access at selected attractions across the park, including family-friendly attractions and thrill rides!

In addition, guests staying in a Sea View room of Disney Explorers Lodge or Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel will receive seat reservations to “Festival of the Lion King” , while guests staying in a Kingdom Club Room of Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel will receive seat reservations to the first show of “Mickey and the Wondrous Book” on the day of their visit.

Translates to the following USD -

$31.75 for the 3-attraction pass
$44.50 and $50.87 for the 8-attraction pass.

$106.84 for the combo with 3.
$119.59 and $124.95 for the combo with 8.

Still cheaper than the US parks, but not by much. Japan is still miles ahead of every other Disney park for value pricing...and everything else, for that matter.

New details about the transformed castle at Hong Kong Disneyland along with the Frozen expansion were released today at the D23 Expo Disney Parks, Experiences and Products presentation!

https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2019/08/hong-kong-disneyland-transformation-includes-castle-of-magical-dreams-new-frozen-area-with-coaster-frozen-ever-after-attraction/

As part of its multi-year transformation, Hong Kong Disneyland’s iconic castle is becoming Castle of Magical Dreams. In addition, two exciting attractions are coming to a new, immersive “Frozen”-themed area at the resort!

Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Bob Chapek shared several new updates on the ongoing expansion of Hong Kong Disneyland at D23 Expo 2019, including a spectacular first look at the transformed castle.

Castle of Magical Dreams will stand as a shining beacon of courage, hope and possibility, draws inspiration from 13 beloved Disney stories featuring princesses and heroines. The structure will feature adornments like Snow White’s apple, Cinderella’s coach and Belle’s rose as well as original artwork and sculptures.

And the castle will become a canvas for new entertainment, including a daytime show and nighttime spectacular and be home to a new Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.

Also at Hong Kong Disneyland, guests will be able to experience the world of “Frozen” like never before – enjoying its sights, sounds, cuisines and traditions. The new “Frozen” area will feature a one-of-a-kind coaster called Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs that will take guests on a winding journey through Arendelle. Each experience on Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs begins when you visit Oaken’s infamous store. Then, Olaf and Sven help pull your sled to the top of the lift before sending you on your way.

Frozen Ever After – the popular attraction at Epcot – will also be opening in the Resort’s new “Frozen” area. Frozen Ever After takes guests on an adventurous journey through the kingdom of Arendelle. And during visits, guests will have the chance to see Elsa create a beautiful “winter-in-summer” day.

Keep checking the Disney Parks Blog for more updates from Hong Kong Disneyland.

The new artwork for the new coaster looks great! Definitely different
(at least on the outside) than the 7 Dwarfs one in WDW's MK. :smile:

CNN has in it's travel section, a very interesting story regarding how deserted HK Disneyland is right now, due to all the Travel Warnings to the Country.

https://www.cnn.com/travel/article/hong-kong-disneyland-demonstrations-intl-hnk-scli/index.html


the story is not telling us anything surprising, but the pictures in the story are pretty amazing (here's a few of em):
