Hong Kong Disneyland Resort revealed creative details about the upcoming castle transformation — an important part of the park’s ongoing multi-year expansion plan on December 8, 2017.
The transformed castle features a seamless blend of styles inspired by different times and cultures while paying tribute to Disney Princess stories, and takes the park’s entertainment to new heights with both a new daytime show and nighttime spectacular. The design of the transformed castle takes inspiration from different times and cultures, as well as a variety of storybook influences and styles. The castle’s features is also inspired by 13 much-loved Disney Princess stories based on Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Fa Mulan, Tiana, Rapunzel, Merida, Moana, and along with Anna and Elsa from Frozen. Coming from the far reaches of Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and beyond, the Disney Princesses are a diverse group unified by their big dreams and courageous hearts.
From the new castle moat and hub area, guests are able to spot princess-inspired decorations on some spires, such as Snow White's apple, Cinderella's coach, Aurora's crown, and Belle's rose, as well as princess-inspired designs and decorations throughout the castle. To add even more magic and fantasy, the transformed castle area includes original artwork, unique sculptures, and designs waiting for guests to find and enjoy. As part of the castle transformation, guests can visit the all-new Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, which is a magical salon where fairy-godmothers-in-training turn young guests into princesses with makeovers, hairstyling, and special outfits. At the transformed castle, guests can also meet different Disney Princesses at different times.
There is also a new outdoor stage where Hong Kong Disneyland’s daytime show and nighttime spectacular will be held. Both of these new shows will feature awe-inspiring entertainment experiences, and be special moments for friends and loved ones to enjoy together.
The new castle, which soft-opened on September 25, 2020, officially opened on November 21, 2020.
