QuoteRumor has it that Hong Kong Disneyland is unhappy with the carbon copy of Sleeping Beauty Castle that they received from Disneyland back in 2005 when the park opened. While the small castle looks rather beautiful with the real mountains behind it, the castle itself is rather unimpressive...It seems that Hong Kong is a little jealous of little brother Shanghai Disneyland's giant Storybook Castle and wants a bigger and more impressive park icon of their own.If the plan comes to pass, a larger castle (smaller than Shanghai, but completely unique in design) will be built on the site of the current Sleeping Beauty Castle in Hong Kong. This would mark the very first time that a castle was torn down in a Disney theme park.This project is part of a rumored second expansion phase of the park that would include new attractions as well.
QuoteIt didn't took me long to check this rumor of a change of the HKDL Castle and, guess what, the rumor is TRUE! It doesn't mean that they are GOING to do it, but it means that they are seriously THINKING about doing it.
