Earlier this month, Hong Kong Disneyland Resort (HKD) officially kicked off the multi-year transformation of the park, with new attractions and entertainment experiences that will bring Disney characters and stories to life in ways never seen before.

In the six years starting from 2018, the resort will continue to grow and create more fun for guests with an array of new offerings. The first to open next year under this expansion project will be 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 HKD 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.”

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 Shield will be launched in Tomorrowland. The Marvel Super Heroes will depend on guests to fight against the evil organization Hydra.

HKD will continue to grow as Asia’s Marvel epicentre with the opening of an entire Marvel-themed area.

In addition, 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 centrepiece, 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 night-time spectacular.

Moreover, 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.
