(Hong Kong, September 8, 2016) It’s almost time for a Halloween party with Mickey and Friends at Hong Kong Disneyland! Their brand-new Halloween costumes are ready and they are looking forward to putting on their all-new splendid garb for the Mickey & Friends Costume Party and Mickey’s Halloween Time Cavalcade and have fun with guests during the day. But the Disney Villains we’ve learned to fear from in classic Disney stories are crashing the party at dusk. They will take over Fantasy Gardens and hauntingly beckon the courageous to come close for photos.
The “Double the Fun” special offer for Hong Kong residents entitles guests to two park visits for $599 on any two days during the designated period between September to December, making it possible for guests to get the full Disney Halloween Time experience as well as experience the Christmas magic, completing the festive year-end season.
Mickey & Friends gear up to host party in all-new Halloween costumes
Mickey and Minnie in their new Halloween outfits in a pumpkin hue and accentuated with a touch of apple green will lead the party with the Disney Friends. The same color theme is carried through in the costumes for Donald and Daisy, Goofy and Pluto, and Chip ‘n’ Dale. Duffy and ShellieMay perfectly match in their pumpkin-tone tops and hats, and their newest friend Gelatoni the cat artist, will make his Halloween Time debut at the Mickey and Friends Costume Party right in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle and then join in the all-new Mickey’s Halloween Time Cavalcade on Main Street, U.S.A !
Disney Villains crash the party
Wicked Disney baddies want to make their ominous presence felt during Disney Halloween Time. They will take over the Fantasy Garden and turn it into Villains Gardens to get up close and personal with daring guests at their very own character greeting.
The evil Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmatians will strike a frightful pose in her statement fur. The Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland may shout “off with their heads” to those who come close for a photo. Captain Hook from Peter Pan threatens all with cruel tricks. Jack and Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas inspire fear in onlookers, and the Big Bad Wolf from Three Little Pigs may huff and puff and blow you out of the garden. So get close to them for a treasured Halloween photo, if you dare.
The daytime fun will end as Disney Villains come out in force to play after the sun goes down. They will appear in Fantasyland, Adventureland and Main Street, U.S.A. The Evil Queen and Jafar, will lead the nighttime spectacular, Villains Night Out!, will scowl from a great height on all who dare to look. The short-tempered Queen of Hearts, Captain Hook, and Jack from The Nightmare Before Christmas, are also joining the devilish procession lineup. Meanwhile, Maleficent will appear on the walls of Sleeping Beauty Castle and morph into a ferocious dragon, determined to claim it as her own.
A nightmare experiment that’s not easily forgotten The Pavilion has been commandeered for The Nightmare Experiment – a mind-bending dreamscape journey through a laboratory, tunnel and labyrinth that leads to the dark realm from The Princess & The Frog, a jail in Pirates of the Caribbean, an encounter with mutant toy from Toy Story and the Mad Hatter’s lunatic asylum in Alice in the Wonderland. Ominously, there is only “The Professor” to guide dreamers out of the nightmare.
