Also, new and longtime Disney friends will be appearing at the new Africa-themed Karibuni Marketplace in Adventureland and other locations across the park to greet guests and take photos.

Surprise party for Mickey kicks off new season at Hong Kong Disneyland
To kick off the beginning of the season, Minnie is inviting her pals to a surprise celebration for the one and only Mickey in a heart-warming projection show called “We Love Mickey!,” which will be held every evening at the park starting on March 15. This celebration features larger-than-life nighttime projections on the Main Street, U.S.A. buildings that pay tribute to Mickey’s major milestones. The artistic experience features Mickey’s memorable moments, his full-color heyday, and a crazy kaleidoscope of Mickey in modern styles. These iconic images of Mickey will be played out over four chapters along Main Street, U.S.A. Afterward, Mickey will appear to thank everyone for the big surprise.
Disney Friends join bigger and more colorful processional
More than 30 Disney Friends will show up in force for an encore of the popular Disney Friends Springtime Processional.
