HKDL Update : " Andy's Toy Box " Coming at Toy Story Land !

Hong Kong faced this week-end the powerful typhoon Vicente, but at HKDL apparently only some trees fell down in the park. Typhoon Vicente caused the city to raise its strongest typhoon warning for the first time in 13 years but because Disney has taken the typhoon wind speed into consideration when they've built the park every building in the resort can apparently face a typhoon without ( too much ) damages.

Now, let's talk about the latest news as there is something new coming at HKDL. And no, it's not located in the upcoming Mystic Point opening in Spring 2013, but in Toy Story Land! So far, the park did not communicate on it and apparently what they are building is a new shop which will be called Andy's Toy Box. It may looks strange, specially considering the merchandise potential of Toy Story toys, but so far there was no merchandise shop built inside Toy Story Land - only a big themed cart. Apparently HKDL execs changed their mind, thanks to the success of the new land.

As you will see on the pics below fences have been placed all around an area near the blue barrel of fun with posters of Toy Story characters looking like "children drawings".

Very nice! I hope and think they will make something good out of it.

Is there still room for Midway Mania? That would complement the land greatly :)

Toy Story Midway Mania would make it a great land, with Midway Mania as the centerpiece of the land and those carnival rides just to complement and expand the theme.

The way it is it's really lame, it's like a bugs land in CA without the "It's tough to be a bug" 4D movie.
Good for them that it's successful, but I think that the only reason for its success is the fact that they are located on the two worst Parks that Disney has ever built; Disney Studios Paris and HK Disneyland. I really don't think that it would be successful in the US or in Japan.
