Testing is already being done on the Toy Soldiers Parachute Jump and lots of theming has been installed. However most of it is hidden by the foilage. The giant Woody at the entrance to the land has also been added. Check out the video below.

But this third land deserves no place inside a Disneyland themepark. Too industrial looking. Although I'm kind of glad its progress is coming along so quickly.

    And that Woody towers over the land. It looks much bigger than the Buzz at the Studios.

    Woody looks so much better than Buzz. Why didn't we get Woody.

Depite what some will have you believe the park is already very much a full day experience. A lot of this depends of course of your friends preference. If he's into rides but not much else its probarely not worth him going. But if he enjoys the shows and parade's. Maybe a nice table service meal. Than certainly a full day trip is worth it in my view.

    Some people here might suggest he visit nearby Ocean Park, instead.


    "Is it possible to do all attractions in one day?"

    It aint called a "half day park" for nothing!

I visited Ocean Park in 2008 and was done and ready to leave 3 hours later. Now thats a half day park full of ugly unthemed rides and dirty and small Animal exhibits. Not for me thanks.

    But than again he'll me guaranteed a good meal with such options as squid of a stick and Mcdonalds, yum.

    I think anybody that did that would be quite disappointed!

    But the good thing to do would be to plan your holiday so you visit both HKDL and TDL, since they are in the same region.

    A specific trip to TDL with a side trip to HKDL(half day)would be fine!

Dining at Crystal Lotus would be a must

    The quality of WDW is appalling, but I have heard great things about the quality at HKDL (despite lack of quantity).

    As for TDL, well that would have to be a 3 week trip to Japan allowing for 5 days at TDL/TDS.

HKDL is most definitely a whole day experience. Plus being a refreshing small park with a charming and unique atmosphere..I definitely recommend it to anyone interested.
