Christmas at Hong Kong Disneyland is such a magical time of the year, the celebrations kick off normally the second half of November and run
up to the New Year.
The entire park is transformed into a wonderland full of the holiday cheer, glitzy ornaments, dazzling lights, fluffy snow, holiday wreaths...
And everywhere you go, red, green and golden shiny bows, balls and garlands, merry candy canes and Santa hats... all decorating every corner of this magical world to make it even merrier...
There is of course the magnificent Christmas Tree that greets you as you first come in Main Street, and all the buildings flanking it are splendidly decorated as well...
The holiday celebrations will normally include daily parades and fests with Mickey, Minnie and the gang all dressed up
in holiday gear, singing carols and partying away with the crowds.
There's the usual Character Greeting spots where you get to meet your favourite friends.
Get the daily guide at Guest Services to see the times
and locations for that particular day.
And keep your eyes open as you roam around the park, you never know who you might run into...
Here's Goofy and Pluto along Main Street in their Christmas costumes...
And of course, a Christmas celebration wouldn't be complete withouth a festive Parade!
Themes for the parades and celebrations vary from year to year, "Let it Snow"...
"Santa Mickey's Toy - Riffic Street Party", etc.
They all share the common beat of rejoicing in this magical time of the year.
And at night, the lights come to life and the spectacle is breathtaking...
If during the day Sleeping Beauty Castle is stunning, wait until the night when it is lit up in all its glory... but sadly Sleeping Beauty Castle is currently undergoing its transformation and won't be ready for the 2019 Christmas celebrations.
...But beautiful Christmas Illumination ceremonies and events take place every day at dusk.
Although the events may vary from year
to year to coincide with the theme of the season, it is always spectacular. Some may last only a few minutes, some may be even interactive.
This one took only a few minutes, starting
with the Christmas tree lighting, then one by one, all the lights along Main Street led the way to the castle,
with bursts of shimmer and glow that literally exploded with colour, simply stunning...
