Hong Kong Explorers are in for a treat as Disneyland celebrates “Disney Halloween Time”. Running 14 September to 31 October 2017, the seasonal event promises a spook-tacular selection of entertainment, special dining experiences, and limited-edition merchandise.
First up, courageous explorers can test their nerves as they venture into the “Maze of Madness: The Nightmare Experiment Continues,” an immersive walk-through experience where a mad professor takes guests on a journey into the dark side of Disney stories. On their adventure guests will visit some of the scariest locations from the world of Disney, including the Mad Hatter’s Hat Shoppe from Alice in Wonderland, Stromboli’s Wagon from Pinocchio, and of course the Scare Floor from Monsters, Inc. Frightful rooms based on Beauty and the Beast and Hercules will also appear.

Next is “Mickey’s Halloween Time Street Party”, where guests join their favourite Disney characters for a crazy Halloween dance party on Main Street U.S.A. Mickey, Minnie and Goofy will appear in special Halloween costumes atop giant jack-o’-lanterns to greet guests and get the party started.
After nightfall, things will take a wicked turn as “Villains Night Out! Chapter 2” brings Disney’s most infamous baddies back to the park. Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Jafar, Jack Skellington, Captain Hook, the Queen of Hearts and Cruella de Vil will all feature in the nighttime procession, with Ursula from the Little Mermaid joining them for the first time.
If all that wasn’t enough, guests can also find a gang of ghoulish pirates on the “Pirates of the Caribbean Ghost Trail” in Adventureland. Here wannabe pirates can join the crew as they seek revenge on Captain Jack Sparrow.
Finally, guests can head to special Trick-or-Treat Booths around the park for a sweet snack and the chance to meet some of their favourite Disney heroes and villains.
