Forbidden Kingdom Part 2...
The rumors are that the Hong Kong government has rejected plans for the POTC expansion.
This sounds grim, but we need to realize that construction wouldn't really begin till late next year and that gives Disney plenty of time to improve the situation... if this rumor is true.
Until then it appears Disney will try a number of events and promotions in addition to IASW to increase attendance. It's really too early to make a judgement on this. I've heard no concrete information that this is anything more than a rumor. It could just be something that started on a blog(Not this one), or it could be Disney trying to tone down expectations ahead of IASW.
If it is true, time will tell... the park will get better and more lavish... only much more slowly.
I'll keep my ear to ground on this.
