I promised you four days ago the photos of Hong Kong Disneyland It's a small world's inauguration on April 27, and here they are, in glorious high-resolution!
Everything began with a parade in a Main Street and the rope drop moment, with children from all over the world, and, of course children from Hong Kong.
Here is a short youtube video of it
During the celebration the Walt Disney Company announced the recipients of the first grants from the Disney Children’s Fund. Created by TWDC’s Worldwide Outreach group, the HK$1 million Fund was established as part of a pilot program to address the needs of children in the Hong Kong community. And yes, the man on the left is Jay Rasulo, in person, live from Hong Kong!
Talking about Jay, here he is again, for the Dedication Celebration speech, with the financial secretary of the Hong Kong special administrative region Government, John Tsang ...
And here they are again in one of the first boat of IASW !
In another boat, Ursule Wong, daughter of legendary lyricist James Wong, was presented with a plaque to commemorate the legacy of her father’s famous “it’s a small world” lyrics for the cantonese version. The Cantonese verses composed by James Wong more than 30 years ago still remain popular to this day in Asia.
As always in this kind of event the evening ended with a show and great fireworks!
Here is a short video of the finale!
