The newest in Disney’s oeuvre of nighttime spectaculars, “Momentous”, has finally debuted at Hong Kong Disneyland! And thanks to our friends at Disney Magical Kingdom Blog, we have a full video of the new nighttime spectacular!
A special ceremony was also held featuring words from Paul Chan, Financial Secretary of the Hong Kong SAR Government, and Michael Moriarty, managing director of Hong Kong Disneyland Resort.
“Hong Kong Disneyland Resort’s brand-new nighttime spectacular will take the magic to a whole new level and bring the Castle of Magical Dreams to life. Our talented local and international cast members began working on this project back when our new castle didn’t even exist five years ago! Add in the obstacles to travel during the pandemic, and it’s been a stellar effort from the team overcoming different challenges. We’re proud to unveil this much-anticipated new spectacular for the very first time and we’re sure that our guests will be captivated, wanting to come again and again to watch the most magical show on earth.” said Michael Moriarty, managing director of Hong Kong Disneyland Resort.
“Despite the daunting challenges of COVID, Hong Kong Disneyland just keeps thinking bolder. And what can be bigger, more awe-inspiring, than ‘Momentous,’ a multimedia storytelling spectacular after five years in the dreaming and creating. After all, the power of Disney magic had attracted more than 88 million guests to Hong Kong Disneyland since its opening in 2005, a number sure to soar in the momentous months, and years, to come.” said Paul Chan, Financial Secretary of the Hong Kong SAR Government.
“Momentous” has six chapters, featuring about 150 Disney characters from almost 40 Disney and Pixar stories. An original song, “Love the Memory,” debuted as part of the “Momentous” nighttime spectacular. For the first time at Hong Kong Disneyland, large-scale projection mapping technology are in use to bring the Castle of Magical Dreams to life. The spectacular also incorporates the fountains of the castle moat, special lighting, and lasers.
