Come "Paint the Night" at Disney's
Newest Parade

It's just sheer magic...

Absolutely fantastic... "Paint the Night" Parade is Disney's latest dose of magic that brings technology and creativity together for a stunning 18-minute show along Main Street USA.

So what is"Paint the Night" about? It's about dazzling lights and colours, gorgeous shimmering costumes, state-of-the-art floats and over 80 glowing performers, all perfectly coreographed to typical Disney catchy tunes, and oh yes, interactive features that allow the public to change the colour of the cast members costumes... yes, you really get to "Paint the Night"!

How does that work? Well, you have to buy Mickey's Magic Paint Brush which becomes your magic wand that allows you to sprinkle your own bit of glitter with a push of a button by changing the glowing reds into blues into yellows into magentas...

The effects are incredible, fiber optics and LED light galore. Everything glimmers, everything twinkles, everything shines, even the performers hair, eyebrows, eyelashes... The show has been two years in the making and luckily, Hong Kong Disney will be the first one of all parks in the Disney family to host it.

Who's in the parade? There are several floats and the themes range from a good mix of the newer Pixar characters as well as our old-time beloved classics.

...Twirling magic fairies and Tinker Bell enveloped in a cloud of pixie dust open the parade...
