(Hong Kong, September 19, 2016) The new King and Queen of Halloween Time, Mickey and Minnie, are hosting the jovial costume party at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, and Disney’s infamous villains from 24 Disney stories are crashing the party at dusk as they have threatened. From now till October 31, Disney Halloween Time will be in full swing, bringing wicked fun during the day and spine-tingling thrills in the evening, the “Double the Fun” special offer for Hong Kong residents entitles guests to two park visits for a full experience of Disney Halloween Time, as well as a glimpse of Christmas magic in the run-up to the year-end festive season.
Party time with Mickey and Friends for younglings and families
Main Street, U.S.A. is all decked out with a giant Mickey Mouse Pumpkin at Town Square and carved pumpkins in various locations. The reigning King and Queen of Disney Halloween Time, Mickey and Minnie, and their friends look sharp in their newly tailored Halloween costumes. Duffy’s newest friend, Gelatoni the cat artist, is also making his Halloween debut at Hong Kong Disneyland. They are awaiting to share hugs and snaps with guests on Main Street, U.S.A.
Young guests dressed for the occasion might have chance to join Mickey and Friends in the daily Mickey & Friends Costume Party. Cast members on Main Street, U.S.A. will invite 16 to 20 children in their finest Halloween costumes to join Mickey and his pals in the costume party every day. The party hosts will introduce everyone to the Halloween Time theme song and all the key dance steps as they show off their costumes alongside Mickey and Friends in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle. And just when they think things couldn’t get any more fun, they will be invited to play a part in Mickey’s Halloween Time Cavalcade later in the day.
Mickey and Minnie, together with Goofy will spread Halloween cheers and lead the Cavalcade from atop three giant Jack-o-lantern whirlies. Their friends Donald and Daisy, Pluto, Chip and Dale, Duffy and ShellieMay as well as Gelatoni the cat artist, will form a festive entourage with the parade performers. And for the grand finale, young participants of Mickey & Friends Costume Party, in their creative costumes, will complete the entourage, bring to all a fun-filled day-time Halloween fanfare.
Disney villains turn park upside down after dark
As dusk falls, villains from 24 Disney stories crash the party and take over the park, casting spells over the nighttime spectacular and in Fantasy Gardens. A spooky professor will also lead guests on a nightmarish journey in the Pavilion through the darker realms of Disney Stories.
The Evil Queen and Jafar have hijacked the nighttime spectacular, will lead the nighttime cavalcade Villains Night Out! while scowling down from a great height on all who dare to look. The short-tempered Queen of Hearts, Captain Hook, and Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas, are also joining the devilish procession, fascinating the crowd with songs dancing and visual projections. Announcing her arrival with her blood-curdling evil laugh, Maleficent appears on the walls of the Castle and morphs into a ferocious dragon, breathing real fire as she crashes through the walls to lunge for the crowds.
The Pavilion is commandeered for The Nightmare Experiment and turned into a mind-bending dreamscape of laboratory, tunnel and labyrinth leading to the dark realm of The Princess & The Frog, the jail of Pirates of the Caribbean, the mutant toys box of Toy Story and Mad Hatter’s lunatic asylum in Alice in Wonderland. Ominously, there is only “The Professor” to guide the dreamers out of the nightmare.
Fantasy Gardens is no more during Disney Halloween Time. Wicked Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmatians and other frightful baddies have taken it over and made it Villains Garden. The lot of them – including Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland, Captain Hook from Peter Pan, Jack Skellington and Oogie Boogie from The Nightmare Before Christmas, and the Big Bad Wolf from Three Little Pigs – dare guests to come close for a photo. The Disney Trick-or-Treat Booths in the gardens will also dish out fun performance treats, but do so at your own peril as their evil is unmatched.
