Disney fans have much to look forward in the Spring with the Disney Friends Springtime Carnival returning to Hong Kong Disneyland from March 15 to June 20.

Minnie will celebrate her favourite season by inviting her pals to a surprise celebration for Mickey in a heart-warming projection show called “We Love Mickey!”, which will be held every evening at the park. This celebration features larger-than-life night time projections on the Main Street, USA buildings that pay tribute to Mickey’s major milestones. The artistic experience features Mickey’s memorable moments, his full-colour heyday, and a crazy kaleidoscope of Mickey in modern styles. These iconic images of the much-loved mouse will be played out over four chapters and then Mickey will appear to thank everyone for the big surprise.

More than 30 Disney Friends will show up for the popular Disney Friends Springtime Processional. Disney characters will appear on a flower-decorated train for the high-spirited processional every afternoon. Duffy, Shellie May, Gelatoni and StellaLou — all wearing their spring outfits—will be joined by Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, Pluto, Chip, Dale, Judy and Nick from “Zootopia”, Alice and the White Rabbit from “Alice in Wonderland”, Marie from “The Aristocats,” the Seven Dwarfs, and Tigger and Piglet.

From February through April, Moana and Marvel Super Heroes Black Panther and Groot will be on standby at the park to save the world while Judy and Nick from Zootopia lead a new journey at the Adventureland. In Tomorrowland, Spider-Man will return from April to June and young visitors can enjoy playing several interactive games at the new African-themed Karibuni Marketplace, which is set to open in March. 

At the Royal Princess Garden, young visitors can get a magical makeover at the park’s first beauty salon, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, and enjoy dream-come-true meetings and photos with beloved Disney Princesses in an exquisite garden area.

A sumptuous range of mouth-watering snacks and drinks will also be on offer. Guests can sample Duffy and ShellieMay Sweetie Rings and StellaLou Purple Potato Mousse at the Market House Bakery along with character cookies or participate in the DIY cupcake sessions at Fantasyland’s Royal Banquet Hall.

Guests staying overnight at the fairytale Disney resort can take advantage of different arts and crafts workshops and the Easter Magicarnival, which offers engaging outdoor games and activities from March 30 to April 8.

Early birds booking online at either Disney Explorers Lodge, the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel or Disney’s Hollywood Hotel can save up to 15 per cent and get a free room upgrade plus an Attraction Priority Admission Pass.
