A Sparkling Christmas at Hong Kong Disneyland

Main Street, night 3

I’ve said this many times, over and over: Hong Kong Disneyland is one of my favourite theme parks. It has changed so much since it opened! Three new themed lands, and a new dark ride that has left the world in awe. And then the park recently announced the new Iron Man attraction.

If there’s one thing Hong Kong Disneyland is really great at – apart from adding new attractions that guests actually want – it would be their seasonal events. They are always elaborate and as sophisticated as any park with the Disney Parks brand. I have wanted to visit their Halloween event for years, but October has been always the month that I don’t have time to travel. But soon, soon!

Christmas is the park’s most important holiday season and my visit last year gave an experience that was nothing short of amazing: The decorations at the park transforms Main Street, USA. into a festive wonderland; the overall atmosphere is just incredible, and quite magical. This year, Hong Kong Disneyland presents A Sparkling Christmas – a joyous celebration at the park from 14 November 2013 till 5 January 2013.

A Sparkling Christmas! at Hong Kong Disneyland

You might be wondering why I’m writing about the park’s 2013 Christmas event… and using photos from last year’s entry. That’s because the event hasn’t started, and I’m not there yet.

Very soon, I’ll be at Hong Kong Disneyland to cover the park’s magical festivities!

Apart from Sparkling Christmas photo features, there will definitely be entries on the world-famous Mystic Point. There might be some other surprises, so stay tuned! I’ll be regularly posting updates over at the Dejiki.com Facebook page.

    Hi. I can’t post any picture on the Dejiki.com FB page. Only “Written Post” is the option… Any help? Thanks 🙂

      This has been fixed. Post away, and good luck!

    Thanks for your amazing photos,

    However, the park does not offer any new or additional entertainment this year…

    • Dejiki November 18, 2013 at 4:38 pm #

      While there isn’t a night parade and some of the performances are similar to 2012, but this year the park introduced Puppets in the Park at the three new themed lands.

        Yes, I already saw your photos ^_^

        Do they still keep the original shows at these places?

        If they dont have a night parade, they can still use some of the old floats to make a new show

        For example, the float for 10th ann of Disneysea has been used for several shows

        Since the opening of 3 new theme lands, Christmas and seasonal events quality have decreased year by year

        Gingerbread village, Mickey’s House, Castle Lights… so much things are missing

        Anyway I cant wait to see the new Electrical Parade next year ^_^

        Disney in the Stars is still great, but I’ve seen it for more than 30 times during 8 years …

          Yes, I do agree that this year it’s less eventful than years before (especially if you compare with the 5th Anniversary celebrations). However, I believe the park has a limit of what they can do, they can’t always offer everything at once, especially when they are recovering from the investment of building the new themed lands.

          There is some effort in keeping people at the new areas (Mystic Point and Grizzly Gulch are not as crowded as I feel they should!) by spreading the Christmas programme across the park.

          I can’t wait for the new night parade too!
