Interesting the castle won't be demolished and rebuilt, they're just adding to it. You can see the remnants of the current castle in the concept art.

Saw this image for possible Buzz replacement...
NOTE: I do not work for Disney, I am not revealing any inside information, I am simply reposting articles and images that I saw on-line. I live in Singapore, have an AP to HKDL... it's one of my favourite Disney Resorts and I am always excited to share my positive experiences (encourage everyone to visit) as well as share news about upcoming changes that will enhance the property. =)
BIG changes are coming to Hong Kong Disneyland between now and 2020.
I've just read that HKDL intends to scrap the clone of Anaheim's Sleeping Beauty Castle with a unique and much larger castle from Frozen. There will be a Frozen land behind Fantasyland.
The next big change will come to 1/2 or more of Tomorrowland. Apparently, the upcoming, out of place (theme-wise) Iron Man Experience won't be out of place when Autopia and Buzz Lightyear are replaced with Marvel Themed attractions. I can't confirm that Buzz is going...but based on the new map, it would be out of place if sandwiched between two Marvel attractions?
A final change would bring a stage show to Adventureland... it would appear to be in the cross area where there is an Indian-styled Buddha in a marsh-like spot. Keep in mind that a new 'Adventure' themed hotel is coming in 2017 along with Iron Man.
Here are the sources that I've seen so far:
A rumor reported the other day states that Sleeping Beauty Castle will be torn down and "a larger castle (smaller than Shanghai, but completely unique in design) will be built on the site of the current Sleeping Beauty Castle"

An announcement from Disney is expected soon.
