Join your favourite Disney characters as they dress up to celebrate Halloween in true Disney style at Hong Kong Disneyland!  There's no need to be scared of this spook-tacular celebration of family fun as all the Halloween extras are included in the regular park admission!

 

Amazing Atmosphere

The Halloween celebration begins at the entrance of the park, where the first whimsical jack-o-lanterns can be spotted, depicting famous Disney characters.  The park, especially Main Street, is decked out with orange decorations and a giant "Mick-o-lantern" can be found at the hub, in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle.

The experience intensifies at nightfall, when the special lighting and music begins along Main Street and at the Castle.  Don't miss this spooky opportunity to experience Main Street in a ghoulish light and covered in cobwebs.

 

 

The eateries on Main Street have also transformed themselves for the event with the creation of unique Halloween menus.  Whether you're after a Pumpkin Brulée, Witch Soup or Spooky Forest, the special menus can cater to your desires.  The 3 eateries all have their own unique menu with the Plaza Inn being the place to go for a full meal of Halloween delights, the Corner Cafe for a devilishly delicious treat and the Main Street Bakery the place for a ghoulish snack... or two.

 

Halloween Happenings

After nightfall it's time to join in the fun with the Halloween Costume Mini-Parade!  Every night at 7pm Zorro Mickey, Witch Minnie, Pirate Goofy and Pluto join their friends on the Graveyard Float, travelling down the parade route from Fantasyland to Main Street.  Joining them for the fun is the Hong Kong Disneyland Marching Band, playing the "Grim Grinning Ghosts" theme from the Haunted Mansion attractions of other Disneylands.  Also celebrating the fun are the Disney Dancers dressed as ghoulish creatures to heighten the mood.

 

 

The Graveyard Float is decorated with pumpkins, lanterns, a bubbling cauldron, tombstones inspired by the Haunted Mansion attractions of other Disneylands and has its own Haunted Mansion atop a hill at one end.

Guests are invited to join the Disney characters during the parade by coming to the park dressed up in Halloween attire.  Hong Kong Disneyland has published a Dress Up Guide on the Official Site to help guests dress appropriately.

 

 

After noon during the daytime guests are also invited to come face to face with the Disney Villians, who have taken the Main Street Opera House and turned it into their Villains Lair.  Some of Disney's most notorious villains will be in attendance, such as Jafar, The Queen of Hearts, Captain Hook, Hades, Cruella de Vil and the Evil Witch from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.  Once inside, guests can explore the nightmare graveyard, Hades' playground, the Evil Witch's lair or meet their favourite villain.

 

Frightfull Fun

The fun of Halloween at Hong Kong Disneyland does not end with the spooky decorations and entertainment.  Guests can enjoy the fun of the Halloween festivities throughout their entire day in the park by participating in the trick-or-treat treasure hunt.  Find clues, collect stickers and cross the park in search of candies and Mickeys Halloween Treats, meeting up with Disney castmembers and characters along the way.  The treasure hunt begins online at the official website, where guests can collect virtual candies to earn online gifts by taking the Halloween virual tour.
