Concept Art new Hong Kong Disneyland Castle revealed

As we reported earlier, Hong Kong Disneyland will start the works on the castle transformation as soon as the new year starts. To kickstart the pending works, fences have already gone up around the castle.

The transformed castle will feature a seamless blend of styles inspired by different times and cultures, while paying tribute to Disney Princess stories. The transformed castle will feature a new daytime show and nighttime spectacular. Last Friday new concept art on the future castle was shared by HKDL.

Hong Kong Disneyland - Castle Transformation

First of its kind Transformation

This is a completely reimagined take on a Disney castle and a first-of- its-kind transformation at a Disney Park,” said Samuel Lau, executive vice president and managing director of the resort. “Our castle will be transformed to emphasize the power of pursuing your dreams. We’re confident the majestic design, which will serve as an amazing backdrop for new entertainment, will resonate with our local and international guests. The castle transformation also signifies the continuous growth of the park, especially with the multi-year expansion happening over the next six years.

Kelly Willis, executive creative director of Walt Disney Imagineering Asia, said, “The design of the transformed castle will feature a variety of storybook influences in its thematic spires, domes and other architectural elements. The castle will be based in the present yet looking toward the future, with different colors, textures, designs and patterns both high and low. Our team of designers is hard at work so that the transformed castle will be a constant source of inspiration for our guests.”

Disney Princess Stories

The castle’s features will be inspired by 13 much-loved Disney Princess stories based on
Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan, Tiana, Rapunzel,
Merida, Moana and Anna and Elsa. Coming from the far reaches of Asia, Europe, the Middle East and beyond, the Disney Princesses are a diverse group unified by their big dreams and
courageous hearts. The design will also take inspiration from different times and cultures.

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique

Part of the transformation will be the addition on a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. At the moment young guests already have the ability to visit this magical salon at the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel. The transformed castle will also give guests the opportunity to meet different Disney Princesses.

Multi-year development

The transformation of the castle is part of a larger multi-year development which will last until 2023. The works on the castle will start on January 1st 2018 and should last until somewhere in 2019. An exact date is not known yet.
