Hong Kong Disneyland’s Mystic Point to Open May 17

OK.  So I’ve read this article more than once and while I still can’t figure out exactly why this attraction is going to be so super awesome, at least the ride vehicle technology sounds cool.

Update:  Reading more, it sounds like a new take on a Haunted Mansion-esque attraction, perhaps even ala Cory Doctorow’s vision from Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom.

OSHA Shuts Down Several Disneyland Rides

In an interesting bit of news yesterday, the California division of OSHA served notice on Disneyland and shuttered several attractions for violations related to worker (not guest) safety.

In addition, there was apparently a fire aboard one of the Nemo subs (also mentioned in the above article). If you’re planning to visit Disneyland (and California Adventure) in the near future, be advised that some of your favorite attractions might not be available.
