Awesome HKDL Aerial Video Reveal Land Available for Park's Future Additions


Someone named Eddie Ling had the excellent idea to fly his DJI Phantom2 equipped with a GoPro Hero3 camera over Hong Kong Disneyland. Not only the aerial video is awesome but he succeeded to capture night and day shots, including during the HKDL fireworks and it's interesting to see from where the fireworks is shot over the park. 

But there is more as thanks to these HD GoPro Hero 3 aerial video we can see clearly what are the locations still available for future additions at HKDL! Let's have a look at all this, but first, here is the awesome video.




Now, let' shave a look at all the spots available with these screen captures i did for you - click on each to see them in big sire.

First, let's fly over HKDL hotels to note the land on which will be built HKDL third hotel "Disney's Explorers' Lodge" as well as another land available on the right for future addition.



Let's fly over the park now, and start by having a look at the works at the Iron Man Experience construction site, to open in 2016.


The next shot will show you the land still available backstage Adventureland, on the left of Grizzly Gulch, and yes, it's there where the POTC land was envisioned to be built, and never will be.


On the next picture below you'll see the big land still available backstage Fantasyland and i won't be surprised if they build there Toy Story Mania as it is close to Toy Story Land.



The next screen shot will show you the little land still available backstage Tomorrowland for future additions. The building in the top right is i think the HKDL Imagineering building which will be moved on the location for the second park when HKDL 2nd gate construction will start, which will make more land available in this location for future attractions.


Well, as you've seen, HKDL still have plenty of room available for new attractions before they start to build HKDL second gate. That said, they don't have a huge land that could be used for a Cars Land, Avatar Land or even a Star Wars land so these probably must be expected only in the future park. 

Don't miss too on D&M Facebook page great pictures showing you five things which i think are better at HKDL than at DLP! It's right HERE

Editing: Eddie Ling also fimed another aerial video over HKDL main competitor at Hong Kong, Ocean Park! Great views of the park, as well as Hong Kong island and the China sea!

Thanks for the superinteresting article!! I have a question for you: do you know if there is any land left at or around disneylandpark in paris? It would be so cool!

What makes you say Pirates will never go there? It's such a huge disney franchise that's hard to imagine. Or is it like Indiana Jones in Paris, where they will probably always have cold feet about spending the money?

Really hope they build more in that space behind Fantasyland, it's such a small version with only Pooh as a dark ride! The land for the princess forest seems small too...

The POTC project as it was envisioned for HKDL will not be built because it will be too big for the land now remaining available, because a big part of the concept will be built in Shanghaî, and because of the cost of it, which was already the problem, back 8 years ago .

This is so cool, thanks a lot!

On the picture from Disney's Hollywood Hotel, you see on the left some sand. They were building there last year, and when we asked on the reception desk what they were doing, they said it was just for some "plumbing" or something like that. So it looks like a construction site too, but it should be nothing exciting.

The future also looks bright for HKDL, as there is so much room to expand, thanks for the great update ! :)

Wow. I'm glad to see that the smallest magic kingdom park still has a lot of space to expand. This makes the park's future really look brighter. Can't wait to see what ideas the imagineers have in order to have more attractions. Thanks for all of those amazing photos!
