HONG KONG, May 26 (AP) -- Hong Kong Disneyland doesn't open until September, but officials are already talking about expanding the theme park.

The park has room to add new attractions after it opens on Sept. 12, Disney spokeswoman Esther Wong said. "We have not fully used up our land yet," she said.

But Wong declined to give a timetable or other details for the plan, saying that the company is focusing on a successful opening.

On Wednesday, Hong Kong's financial chief, Henry Tang, told reporters that Disney plans to add more attractions so that visitors will return to the park in its second or third year of operation.

The park is a joint venture between the Hong Kong government and The Walt Disney Co. It is being built on reclaimed land on outlying Lantau Island. Officials say the park is a key part of Hong Kong's plan to become a prime destination for vacationing families.
