Hong Kong Disneyland Resort has announced that it
will officially celebrate its 15th anniversary with the opening of
the reimagined castle – the Castle of Magical Dreams – on 21
The resort’s “A Disney Christmas” special event
will kick-off on the same day.
Inspired by 13 stories of beloved Disney
Princesses and Queens, the Castle of Magical Dreams offers
something special for every guest with its many towers and spires
embracing iconic patterns, textures, colors and ornamentation
unique to each story.
This is the first time in Disney history that an
existing castle has undergone such a grand transformation. To mark
the occasion, guests can visit the “Building a Dream: The Magic
Behind a Disney Castle” exhibition, and embark on a visual journey
that goes behind the magic, discovering the Walt Disney
Imagineering process of reimagining the beloved castle, and
gaining insights into the transformation from concept and design
development, to the innovative building techniques, interpretation
of the Disney Princesses and Queens’ stories in partnership with
Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar Animation Studios, and
upcoming entertainment offerings.
Starting the same day, a special “Glimpse into the
Magic” tour of the Castle of Magical Dreams will be available to
guests. This tour allows guests to venture through the castle,
whilst being guided by an audio narration from local celebrity and
Disney fan, Karena Lam.
“It’s a very immersive tour which allows guests to
appreciate the architectural designs of the towers, turrets,
domes, spires and finials, and see how their various colors,
icons, patterns, and cultural features were inspired by the
Princesses and Queens,” said Lam after experiencing the tour.
