Hong Kong Disneyland Multi-Year Expansion Receives Funding Approval


Back in November 2016, Hong Kong Disneyland announced their plans for a large multi-year development for the park. This included a transformation of Sleep Beauty Castle, a new Frozen-themed area, a Marvel Super Hero attraction, an Avengers attraction, and a new show area in Adventureland.

When it was announced, the funding was pending approval. So, it was not clear if the plans would go through. But, we now know the HK$10.9 billion expansion will move forward as the HK$5.45 billion funding proposal has been approved by the Legislative Council.
