Disney Funding HKDL Expansion?

Variety is reporting that Disney is willing to fund the expansion of Hong Kong Disneyland, but the government would still need to approve the deal as it may require changes in the shareholding agreement.

From what's known thus far, and it's not much, negotiations have been ongoing between Disney and the Hong Kong government to work out funding for the park to expand. When the theme park opened in 2005 it had far too few attraction built for it to be the smash success everyone desired.

I hope that a plan can be worked out to get the expansion underway! It's badly needed, this place is worse that Disney's California Adventure when it opened, at least I think. You have to remember that even once financing is agreed upon it's years until new attractions will open.
