Castle Transformation Reaches New Stage with Tower Additions Representing Beloved Disney Princess Stories
HONG KONG, August 1, 2019 — The transformation of the iconic castle at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort (HKDL) is set to enter its most important stage yet. Starting today, towers and spires representing 13 stories of beloved Disney Princesses and heroines will be lifted onto the castle base.
Guests will witness the ongoing castle transformation progress on their coming visits to the park. The thematic towers, turrets and spires — each uniquely crafted with individual architectural designs — will appear on the castle, bolstering its historic presence and magical qualities at the very heart of the resort.
Each of these thematic architectural elements are inspired by the stories of our much-loved Disney Princesses — Tiana, Aurora, Ariel, Mulan, Jasmine, Snow White, Moana, Cinderella, Merida, Pocahontas, Belle, Rapunzel — along with Anna and Elsa from Disney’s “Frozen” — will all have their moment to shine in sequence throughout this summer.
With special attention to the iconic patterns, textures, colors and ornamentation, guests will be able to recognize the individual elements inspired by their favorite Disney heroines, celebrating a sense of diversity, inclusion and unity.
When fully transformed, the iconic castle will stand as a shining beacon of courage, hope and possibility, inspiring all who dare to dream big.
Extended magic with Disney Princess experiences throughout the resort
While the castle transformation is underway, guests will be able to find Disney Princess footprints scattered throughout the theme park. Guests are invited to follow the footsteps and immerse themselves in these beautifully captivating Disney Princess stories.
