First Videos of Ant-Man and The Wasp: Nano Battle! Now in Soft-Opening at Hong Kong Disneyland

That’s it, the Ant-Man and The Wasp: Nano Battle! is now in soft-opening at Hong Kong Disneyland and we have the first POV video of it thanks to Attractions Magazine.

Looks great to me, good visual / Pepper ghost effects and the Imagineers found a smart way to give the guests the illusion they are reduced at a microscopic size. Check the video below!

Another video of the HKDL Ant-Man and the Wasp ride was posted by Hong Kong Main Street Gazette shows also the ride as well as the queue decor!

Also watch the ride launch ceremony that happened yesterday!

Thanks to Atrractions Magazine, Geek Culture and Hong Kong Main Street Gazette for the videos!

D&M Exclusive : Tokyo Disney Parks "Disney Couples"

There is something which is pretty unique to Tokyo Disney parks, and it's what a friend of mine who shot recently the pictures below call "the Disney Couples". Basically, it's Tokyo Disneyland fans, whether they're just friends or lovers ( and they can be more than two ) who come to TDR parks dressed exactly the same way, with the same clothes, same hat, etc...  often but not necessarily "Disney" outfits.

It may of course exist in others Disney Parks but in Japan, whether at Tokyo Disneyland or Tokyo DisneySea there are dozens if not hundreds of these "Disney Couples".  It's cute, it don't hurt anyone, and it's the kind of thing so deliciously Japanese that we love it!

Invite Your Friends to Your Own Alice in Wonderland’s Mad Tea Party With Disney Meetings and Events !

Did you know about a Disney division called "Meetings and Events"? At Disney Meetings & Events, they take inspiration from classic stories to create meaningful experiences for the guests. Whether you’re planning a very merry (un)birthday party, family reunion, or milestone celebration, the team can craft an immersive, customized event that will provide a memorable, engaging experience for attendees of any age.

They unveiled recently their featured event theme "Alice in Wonderland’s Mad Tea Party", so Let’s take a look at how the attendees can “fall down the rabbit hole” into Wonderland with an event based on the classic animated Disney film Alice in Wonderland.

From the moment Guests enter the room, they will be completely awed that they’ve been immersed into a fantastical scene where their imagination will run free. With oversized chairs, captivating props, and a themed backdrop, your group will be delighted by the intricate level of detail in the setting and décor.

The Mad Hatter will arrive to welcome everyone to the Mad Tea Party, engaging and interacting with your attendees as a memorable introduction to the event. As everyone takes their seat, they will be delighted by the steaming teapots, vibrant floral arrangements, bread-and-butterflies, and other animated table effects that give a nod to the animated classic and truly bring the story to life.

Some of Wonderland’s favorite delicacies can be featured on your custom menu, including the “Queen of Hearts” Headless Shrimp and Blood Orange Sauce, “Mock Turtle” Lobster Risotto with Buttered Fava Beans, and “Pocket Watch” Thyme Pocket Bread with Sea Salt. To give your attendees a greater variety of dining options, you can also incorporate the “Blue Caterpillar Smoker” Action Station, “Tweedledee and Tweedledum” Action Station, and “Rabbit Hole” Action Station into the meal.

Of course, what is a Wonderland-themed party without the signature “Eat Me” cookies and “Drink Me” beverages? These drinks and desserts make for excellent party favors for your guests to take home. You may also consider additional themed dessert options, such as “painting the roses red” cupcakes and “tea cup” tiramisu!

As an added enhancement to this whimsical event, attendees can also receive a surprise visit from Alice, the White Rabbit, or the talking Doorknob. You can also add a photography package to capture candid moments throughout the event.

This private group dining experience gives event planners the ability to adjust and arrange elements to fit their location, timeline and budget, all while keeping attendees engaged and excited. Various elements of food and beverage, décor, and entertainment can be tailored to the group’s preferences.

Disney Meetings and  Events can help you to create the perfect meeting or private event for any size group, theme and objective.
