It appears that The Tropics stormy weather is affecting another round of Disney Park vacations. First, it was the Walt Disney World Resort with Hurricane Ian. Now, our attention turns to Hong Kong Disneyland as it braces for Typhoon Force conditions from Tropical Storm Nalgae.
Hong Kong Disneyland states on its website,
Hong Kong is currently affected by a typhoon. Due to the inclement weather, Hong Kong Disneyland is closed. Inspiration Lake Recreation Centre will remain closed until further notice.
Other sources are also reporting that Hong Kong sounded its No 8 Typhoon Signal in response to Nalgae’s imminent impact, the first time in 50 years the city did so. Ferry services around the archipelago–which can be used as a mode of Guest transportation to Hong Kong Disneyland–have also suspended service. Hong Kong’s trading day also came to an early end.
This latest news does not bode well for The Walt Disney Company’s business in the Far East, as it follows Shanghai Disney Resort’s decision to enact yet another multi-day closure as part of Xi Jinping’s “Covid Zero” strategy. Click the link below to read our previous coverage of that story.
Tropical Storm Nalgae is expected to hit Hong Kong sometime this week.
It should be mentioned that, like Disney World in Florida, Hong Kong Disneyland is built with the ability to endure Typhoon-force weather conditions. It is unclear, though, how this weather will affect the construction of the Resort’s new Frozen-themed land.
🔧 Over in Hong Kong Disneyland, World of Frozen is making good progress with the North Mountain nearing completion (it’s even visible from some Main Street areas) and icy roofs installed on Arendelle Castle.
