Experience the most authentic Christmas celebration this year at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort (HKDL), the closest Disney theme park to the Philippines. From November 16, 2017 to January 1, 2018, the park will be transformed into a winter wonderland where guests can experience a fairytale white Christmas from day to night! Pinoy guests can even enjoy special offers on their hotel stay and park admission, which will surely make many Christmas wishes come true.
Guests are invited to the Mickey and Friends Christmastime Ball to join in Christmas songs with Mickey, Minnie and friends. Then, Santa Goofy will help guests deliver their seasonal wishes at the Christmas Post Office. The festive magic continues with other must-try Christmas moments including A Holiday Wish-Come-True Tree Lighting Ceremony, A Magical Twilight Snowfall and A Holiday Kiss Goodnight.
To ensure that Pinoy guests have an unforgettable trip, a seasonal line-up of delicious meals and holiday gifts will be available. Also, stays at the resort’s newest hotel, Disney Explorers Lodge, will keep guests in the holiday spirit thanks to all kinds of festive activities.
“Christmas just isn’t the same without that authentic holiday atmosphere, and I’m so glad we’re able to bring that to HKDL,” said Randy Wojcik, creative director of Entertainment and Costuming at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort. “Families will be able to enjoy a truly memorable Christmas celebration, with the resort completely transformed by holiday magic. There’s no better place to spend this time of the year with your loved ones, at a Disney resort in the cosmopolitan city of Hong Kong.”
Delightful festive surprises await Pinoy guests
A special performance just for Christmas called Mickey and Friends Christmastime Ball will be performed 2-3 times every day in front of the castle, bringing Mickey, Minnie, and friends together for a holiday celebration of joy and cheer. This 20-min spectacular features inspiring Christmas music and extraordinary dances. During the show, guests will find out if Donald’s holiday wish will finally come true!
Spread Christmas wishes and joy
Guests are also invited to stop by the Christmas Post Office to send holiday wishes and greetings to loved ones. Santa Goofy has set up a special mailbox and prepared festive postcards with a one-of-a-kind Santa Goofy Commemorative Stamp for guests to add a seasonal touch to their messages. Guests can write a seasonal message on this special postcard and send it to their family and friends around the world from Hong Kong Disneyland.
Every night this Christmas, snowflakes will descend in A Magical Twilight Snowfall, transforming the Main Street, U.S.A. into a snowy wonderland. The towering Christmas tree on Main Street, U.S.A will also light up brilliantly for A Holiday Wish-Come-True Tree Lighting Ceremony. Join Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Chip ‘n’ Dale, Duffy, ShellieMay, Gelatoni, and StellaLou as they make a special wish: let it snow! As the lanterns begin to glow, a live quartet of singers will perform some lovely Christmas carols.
Following the park’s iconic evening fireworks display, Christmas carolers will bid guests goodnight at Town Square with Santa Goofy in A Holiday Kiss Goodnight to round off a perfect day!
