After a very difficult few years, Hong Kong Disneyland may finally be winning over Chinese people. The South China Morning Post reports today that the park will record 5.6 million visitors for the year ending September, compared to just 4.2 million last year. The SCMP refers to “sources familiar with the park’s operation” in its story, which also says the park - a joint venture between Disney and the Hong Kong government - has plans to add a new “land,” Frontierland, to the existing Fantasyland, Adventureland and Tomorrowland.
Disney spokesman B.C. Lo won’t confirm the report. “We don’t comment on attendance figures,” says Lo.
