PHOTOS: A Look at the New Castle of Magical Dreams at Hong Kong Disneyland’s Grand Reopening

Today marked a historic moment as Hong Kong Disneyland reopened after the unprecedented wave of closures due to COVID-19. Due to the time difference, the park is already open and welcomed its first wave of enthusiastic guests. While guests were eager to enter the park once again, a great big reveal was in store as everyone got an up-close look at the latest Castle of Magical Dreams construction. This update comes courtesy of our friends at Disney Magical Kingdom Blog, who took these breathtaking photos of the nearly-finished castle.

When completed, the castle, replacing Sleeping Beauty Castle, will feature details inspired by thirteen stories featuring Disney Princesses and heroes, including MulanBraveMoana, and Beauty and the Beast. It will also serve as home to outdoor stage shows and a new Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. The base of the former Sleeping Beauty Castle can be seen at the bottom, but the castle slowly evolves into a colorful, unique array of gilded spires and towers.
