Hong Kong Disneyland reopens amid uncertainty over expansion plans

Resort loses government land for second park amid pressure to develop housing

HONG KONG -- The reopening of Hong Kong Disneyland on Friday eased some of the short-term financial pressures over the troubled resort, but did little to settle doubts that emerged this past week over its longer-term prospects after its expansion plans were quashed by the local government.

Hong Kong Disneyland Resort lost an option to expand its site after authorities decided to not renew an agreement with the amusement park to develop a neighboring site, raising questions about the theme park's future as a regional tourist attraction as it reels from disruptions brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.
