The park still remains closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however they are anticipating on opening real soon! Hong Kong Disneyland has not had smooth sailings the last year. There were clashes between pro-freedom protests and law enforcement in 2019 which greatly impacted the park’s attendance to the extent of canceling their New Year’s Eve party going into 2020. The park then took another hit this year with having to close down due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Although they’ve had a tough break, Hong Kong Disneyland fans have many things to look forward to at this park! Their castle is currently undergoing a brand new transformation and will soon be the new Castle of Magical Dreams. The castle will become a canvas for new entertainment, including a daytime show and nighttime spectacular and be home to a new Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.
They also have the new “Frozen”-themed area that will feature a one-of-a-kind coaster called Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs that will take guests on a winding journey through Arendelle. Each experience on Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs begins when you visit Oaken’s infamous store. Olaf and Sven will then help pull your sled to the top of the lift before sending you on your way.
The second attraction to the new area will also feature Frozen Ever After – the popular attraction at Epcot – will also be opening in the Resort’s new “Frozen” area. Frozen Ever After takes guests on an adventurous journey through the kingdom of Arendelle. During visits, guests will have the chance to see Elsa create a beautiful “winter-in-summer” day.
We are excited to hear an official reopening date from Disney and we know they are absolutely excited and ready to welcome all their Guests back in time for the holidays!
Happy birthday Hong Kong Disneyland!
