Hong Kong Disneyland Update : HKDL Castle Construction, Frozen Land, more...

Here we go for a Hong Kong Disneyland update with pictures and video, mostly coming from HK Main Street Gazette who is doing a great job of posting regularly on Twitter HERE pictures of Hong Kong Disneyland Castle construction. First, an important point about the picture above: this is NOT a real picture of HKDL Castle, it is an editing well done and posted on WDW Magic forum by Park Peeker who did it with a picture of the castle and what we can see on the latest released rendering.

HKDL castle is not finished yet, it'll take many months more, and the real thing looks much more like on the picture below.

Before going ahead with the pictures, here is the latest video posted on their Yourtube account two days ago by HK Main Street Gazette.

And now, a selection of the latest pictures of HK Main Street Gazette, many more await you on their Twitter page HERE.

The good news is that the stained glass are finally in place on the castle, on both sides of it....

As you can see, the works are far to be over...

The next pictures shows a sculpture of Mulan Dragon being installed on the top of a onion dome of a tower - yes, in addition to these multi colored onion domes they install on some of them sculptures!

The second part of this update is about the Frozen land. The land for it has been cleared and you can see it clearly the latest Google Maps satellite pictures ( on the left on the picture below ).

This HKDL official map will help you to see where will be what, including by the way the upcoming Avengers ride ( on the top ) in some years at HKDL Tomorrowland.

Below, the latest artwork for the land, including on the right the sleighs coaster...

...and WDI Imagineers at work on the Frozen village model.

Note the three grey buildings in the center? These in fact shouldn't be in the final village as they've been replaced by another open air building in the last artwork, see below the before / after - pictures thanks to This is Mr B that you can follow on his Facebook page HERE.

Talking about Frozen, look at these themed fences...

One of the pavilion of the Fantasy Gardens has been slightly themed for upcoming meet and greet with Frozen characters anytime soon. Pictures thanks to This is Mr B.

And that's it for this HKDL update, make sure to follow D&M for more update on the castle construction as well as HK Main Street Gazette on Twitter HERE!

The silhouette is very elegant, no doubt. But the clashing architectural styles look over the top to me.

The castle is too tall. They have overdone it, and it looks awkward.
Topheavy, and out of place, lacking in refined good taste.
