Hong Kong's Legislative Council has approved the government plans to co-finance the $1.4 billion expansion of the Hong Kong Disneyland theme park. The expansion plan was proposed in November last year, but came under increasing fire from lawmakers who challenged it in finance committee and other council sessions.

Just visited the park, at the beginning of April. I liked the park, but it's still short a few attractions. That said, we still needed two days to do everything (with some re-rides). Definitely suffers from the "initially built as a half day park" syndrome. Fantasyland specifically is lacking, with (a copy of Orlando's) Pooh as the ONLY dark ride.
However, Mystic Manor is star of the park and is truly fantastic. Some (new to me) effects that were totally surprising, it's Disney at it's best (perhaps eclipsed by Shanghai Pirates).
Operations on Space Mountain were horribly slow one day (like one car on the circuit at a time), but the second day were better. Big Grizzly Mine cars were tame, to me less thrilling than DL's BTMRR, but still a well themed attraction.
Iron man was great, and a terrific gag that 90% of the passengers miss is waiting just outside the exit.
