This next article is all about the Hong Kong Disneyland expansion preview area at D23 EXPO. Andy Castro did a fantastic job with dozens of pictures that will show you everything which is displayed. Don't forget to click on each to see them in big size!
Dozens of renderings - and of course models - of Mystic Manor or Grizzly Trail can be seen in this area and a WDI Imagineer is even there to explain Mystic Manor's story line! Incredible! let's begin by pictures of the model showing the three future lands.
We will have a close look now to Mystic Manor and the good news is that it's a total new attraction! I thought that it would be a re-designed Haunted mansion, but not at all, it's a brand new ride with a new story line, using a different technology for the vehicles, etc...! That's great!
As i told you a WDI Imagineer is here to explain to the visitors Mystic Manor story line with a model showing the full ride. Here he is below, and i found for you a Youtube video that d23live shoot yesterday of this Imagineer explaining what will happen during the ride!
Let's move now to the Grizzly Trail section, and here, too, the Grizzly Mountain coaster is a great attraction with a brand new theming that Imagineers will build at HKDL. Lot of renderings of the scenes and the bears Audio-Animatronics!
Four articles are on line for a full coverage of the D23 Expo 1st day with Andy Castro's fantastic pictures, here are the direct links for each of them: Disney Parks and Resorts area and Cars Land, Hong Kong Disneyland Expansion Preview, An Afternoon with Imagineering Legends, The Live Auction Preview.
