“Stitch has a unique fun-loving and yet mischievous personality that speaks to both young adults and families,” said Andrew Kam Managing Director of Hong Kong Disneyland. “He is definitely our best ambassador for this Summer, reminding everyone, regardless of your age, deserves a time out from the frenetic pace of Hong Kong. Our resort provides the perfect opportunity for a Summer getaway.”

“By rolling out the all-new Summer-themed activities one month earlier than last year, we hope to also attract more Guests from South East Asian markets such as Singapore, India and Indonesia as their Summer vacations begin in June,” Kam added.

Three times a day, Guests will party on Main Street U.S.A. as Stitch invites them all to be the stars of the all-new Stitch’s Summer Dance Bash. Helping him out are some very special Disney friends including Genie and Mr. Incredible, who have never been seen before at the Park in Hong Kong, as well as Goofy and Ariel in their new Summer looks. The show is decked with vibrant color, featuring five mini-floats with unique designs and a group of energized dancers who are all set to rock the entire street.
