Disney’s newest theme park is about to open it’s door to the public this Monday in Hong Kong. The park will be 30 minutes from central Hong Kong, which was constructed at a cost of $3.5 billion dollars and encompass a total of 298 acres. Also located at the theme park is two resort hotels.
The public has generally embraced the park, which began construction in 2003. But environmentalists protested the park’s now-aborted plan to serve shark-fin soup at banquets. Neighbors have complained about the noise and smoke from nightly fireworks shows. And social critics have been worried about the influence of American culture.
But the biggest complaint among some of the thousands who got a sneak peak at the park during a soft opening period in the past month has been that Hong Kong Disneyland is too small. It’s Disney’s smallest park at 40 hectares (about 100 acres)
I wonder if Mickey will be outfitted in the new Communist Red?
