Hong Kong Disneyland Begins Castle’s Transformation in January

Hong Kong Disneyland is in the middle of its multi-year development from now until 2023 (see the 2018 event calendar). Which includes the beginning of the transformation (or refurbishment if you want to call it that) of Sleeping Beauty Castle in January 2018 and completed by sometime in 2019 (no date is set yet).

The official website has a message indicating when the transformation of the castle begins:

Hong Kong Disneyland will kick off the castle’s transformation following the finale of the “Disney in the Stars” Fireworks on January 1, 2018.

There are no other details other than what’s stated above. Meaning, it’s not clear how visible the castle and hub area are starting January 2, 2018. Once we know more information, we’ll keep you updated.

Disney in the Stars Finale

Between now and January 1, 2018, guests are able to collect a commemorative sticker celebrating the Disney in the Stars fireworks show. There’s also commemorative merchandise available at the park. See the Disney Magical Kingdom Blog for photos.

Disney in the Stars debuted when the park opened in 2005 and has seen a number of changes over the years.
