Hong Kong Disneyland Resort officially kicked off its multi-year transformation of the park, with new attractions and entertainment experiences. In the six years starting from 2018, the resort will continue to grow with the first to open next year which is a Moana-themed entertainment venue in Adventureland.
“We are thrilled to create amazing first-of-a-kind experiences based on some of Disney’s best brands, including Marvel and Frozen, here at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort,” said Samuel Lau, executive vice president and managing director of the resort. “Marvel and Frozen are popular with guests across our Asian markets. The new expansion will greatly enhance the appeal of HKDL to guests of all ages and genders in the region. It will give guests new reasons to travel to the resort and this amazing city.”
Lau, along with Howard Brown, general manager and regional executive of Walt Disney Imagineering Asia, and Mickey Mouse joined in on a special moment to mark the beginning of work for the multi-year expansion.
Under the expansion plan, new themed areas, attractions and entertainment will launch almost every year from 2018 through 2023. Highlights include:
• A brand new experience featuring Ant-Man, The Wasp and S.H.I.E.L.D. will be launched in Tomorrowland. The Marvel Super Heroes will depend on guests to fight against the evil organization Hydra. Hong Kong Disneyland will continue to grow as Asia’s Marvel epicenter with the opening of an entire Marvel-themed area.
• An all-new, immersive Frozen-themed area where guests will experience the characters and stories from the film in amazing ways. Guests can visit the Frozen area to enjoy new attractions including meeting the royal sisters Elsa and Anna.
• As the park’s centerpiece, the castle will be transformed to pay tribute to all of the Disney Princesses. The transformed castle will also feature a new daytime show and nighttime spectacular.
• A new, exciting entertainment venue will feature a lively atmosphere stage show in Adventureland featuring Moana, the newest heroine from Walt Disney Animation Studios. Guests can also meet with Moana from the animated film.
