China ain't happy with Hong Kong Disneyland
Written by Robert Niles
Attendance is down, along with revenue at Hong Kong Disneyland, and officials of the government, which own a majority stake in the park, are not happy.Tweet
"The government will continue to urge the park management to formulate cost-effective business strategies and improve the park's operational efficiency," Hong Kong's secretary for commerce was quoted in an Associated Press story.
The AP story reports that Hong Kong Disneyland's attendance has dropped from 5.2 million in its first year, from Sept. 2005-Sept. 2006, to an estimated 4.8 million in its second. Disney reported that the park's income dropped in the first two quarters of this year.
Hong Kong Disneyland opened with the smallest attraction line-up of any Magic Kingdom park. And much like with the similarly under-built California Adventure, potential customers have stayed away.
