On May 17th, Mystic Manor, a high-tech dark ride, will officially open as the center attraction in the newly developed Mystic Point in Disneyland Hong Kong.
Mystic Point is one of the three new land expansions the park has been developing over the past four years, and has been described as a site that is located in the middle of a dense forest riddled with supernatural and magical forces. Mystic Manor serves as the home to Lord Henry Mystic, a member of the Society for Adventurers and Explorers, and his monkey Albert.
The aged explorer owns a variety of exotic artifacts, including an enchanted music box that Albert opens at the start of the ride, causing all of the artifacts in the house to come to life. Below is a link to a video featuring the full ride through for Mystic Manor.
Technical aspects of the attraction include a trackless ride system, advanced Audio-Animatronic figures, and a stunning repertoire of other visual affects.
Note: Mystic Manor is not intended to be a version of The Haunted Mansion.

So do u know anything about the avatar land thing? is that still happening?
Hello! I’m going to go ahead and say this is a bit of a complicated question, so apologies in advance if I don’t do it justice. But essentially, the project is still on the table as far as I know, however whether due to monetary constraints or just the sheer magnitude of the project, no firm details have been announced.
The expansion is supposed to go in Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World, however, it seems safe to say that nothing can proceed if they don’t move Circle of the Lion King. Although, I did read somewhere (sorry, blanking on the source) that construction walls have been put up to move the show to Africa, which I would argue is actually the best move thematically anyway, so once that is settled, the land may proceed at full force.
But there aren’t any firm details as of yet that I can give you about aesthetics or planned attractions. I will, however, put this on my watch list for ya’ll! Thanks for the question!10th AprilFrom AnonymousasksAvatarlandAnimal KingdomDisneyDisney NewsDisney UpdatesDisney ParksWalt Disney Worldanon

Early this week it was announced by John Tsang (Hong Hong Financial Secretary) that Disneyland Hong Kong would be the first Disney Park to receive a Marvel themed area.
It has yet to be reveled whether or not the Marvel expansion will be an entire land within the park, or if it will just remain a small area for character meet and greets, however it will be the first Disney park to make use of Disney’s 2009 acquisition of Marvel.
No mention of a Marvel themed area has yet been suggested for the original Disneyland Park. In addition, due to an agreement with Universal Orlando, Walt Disney World will not be able to feature Marvel characters in any of its six parks.+1 noteDisneyDisney NewsDisneylandWalt Disney WorldThe Walt Disney Co.MarvelDisney UpdatesDisney ParksWalt DisneyHong Kong Disneyland
