Hong Kong Disneyland begins construction on multi-year makeover

Moana is coming to Hong Kong Disneyland

Hong Kong Disneyland is about to undergo what is the biggest change the park has seen since its 2005 debut. The park officially broke ground on a multi-year expansion and enhancement plan that includes the addition of several new attractions and upgrades to others.

What are some of the plans happening over the next several years? Take a look:

  • 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. HKDL will continue to grow as Asia’s Marvel epicenter with the open-ing 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 Ad-ventureland featuring Moana, the newest heroine from Walt Disney Animation Studios. Guests can also meet with Moana from the animated film.

“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.”

The entire project is scheduled to take six years to complete and the first area to open will be the Moana-themed entertainment venue in Adventureland.
