Hong Kong Disneyland plans new attractions to counter sliding attendance
Written by Robert Niles
Attendance is down at Hong Kong Disneyland this year. Waaay down. From 5.2 million visitors a year ago to just 4 million this year. Ouch.Tweet
Of course, Disney built the "Cliffs Notes" version of its Magic Kingdom for Hong Kong, leaving out many of the parks' classic attractions. And Chinese visitors, rather than embracing the Mouse... smelled a rat. Now Disney and its Hong Kong government partners are addressing the sliding attendance with a slate of new rides and shows for the park.
Already announced, Hong Kong Disneyland will in the spring be opening its version of It's a Small World, this time featuring dolls devoted to several Disney animated films, in addition to the traditional national dolls.
Thanks to TPI reader John Quinteros for submitting the new attraction list.
