Hong Kong Disneyland New "Disney Paint the Night" Parade Should Debut September 2014 !


The name of the new Hong Kong Disneyland night parade has been revealed and it is: "Disney Paint the Night". It will debut this year and although HKDL didn't announced yet precisely when it will start in 2014, from what i've been told the new parade should start this September. September being also the month of the HKDL Halloween season it means that you can also say goodbye to the "Glow in the Park Halloween Parade" which last performed on Oct31 after running for 7 years - as i told you in a previous D&M HKDL update. 

I remind you that the new "Disney Paint the Night" parade will have a new interactive concept with guests. As you know the glowing ears in Disney parks are receiving signals and change color. With the new "Disney Paint the Night" parade there will be new devices which will enable guests to send signals to change colors on the parade floats or costumes. So far, it seems that this new parade will be the first one to introduce this new kind of interactivity with the guests which looks to me as an interesting idea... though i'm curious to see how they will manage all the guests signals when sent at the same time to a same float...

Talking about Hong Kong Disneyland i also told you recently that because of the works on the new Iron Man Experience ride - most of the land for the show building being on the other side of the train track - the Hong Kong Disneyland Railroad will be closed, literally, during one year or so. And this was confirmed if i can say "officially" by the new HKDL visitor guide below...


...as the train has disappeared on the new map - see below before / after.


Last but not least, those of you interested by the annual business review" as they call it, can download the PDF released yesterday for the fiscal year 2013 HERE

Looks like they temporarily removed the autopia marquee, too. It's exciting to see new offerings keep coming to the park.

Waw, they are very accurate, I like it! Also the restrooms near Buzz seem to have been closed.

Thanks for the update, also the new parade sounds interesting and totally new. Is this the "non attraction" news you talked about earlier?

Tom, If you're talking about the 2015 secret attraction, i didn't really said that it won't be an attraction, i said that it won't be a "ride" which is a bit different. And, no, the new parade is not the 2015 secret attraction, so you still have time to find what it is! :-)

Seeing the Sleeping Beauty Castle with all the projections on it reminds me of not so long ago at Disneyland, when WDI was talking about painting the castle gold for the big anniversary coming up. I remember thinking how expensive that would be an suggested to my Director, why don't they just project the gold on it at night for the celebration. I'm glad they took my suggestion at Disneyland and have continued it in other parks like HKDL. R1

That's not fair! Why can't Disneyland Anaheim make a new nighttime parade. The Main Street Electrical Parade is great parade and all, but I want see Disneyland make new nighttime parade in time for Disneyland's 60th Anniversary. That Miceage reporter is such a liar.
