Hong Kong Disneyland will officially be the second Disney theme park around the world to reopen its gates. On June 18, Guests will once again be able to walk down Main Street and take in the magic. 

But something new will be there to greet the returning Guests: Hong Kong Disneyland’s Castle of Magical Dreams. It appears that construction was able to move ahead on the transformation project as Disney’s second-youngest resort remained empty due to the global pandemic. And it will be nearly completed when it will be seen by Guests.

To build excitement for the reopening, Twitter user @CyberbbLawrence has shared a closer look at the castle (the screenshots were captured from the Now TV News App, RTHK network, and Hong Kong local news.

The nearly identical replica of the Disneyland Resort’s Sleeping Beauty Castle has been transformed into a towering unique masterpiece. But rather than completely eliminate what was there before, one can see the original castle is still there. It forms the base to the entirely new structure, and creates a visual metaphor for how Disneyland’s past has provided the foundation for the magical dreams of today to flourish.

Hong Kong Disneyland shared a press release on the castle transformation saying:

This is the first time that an existing castle in a Disney park has undergone a transformation of this scale, in what is sure to be one of the most momentous, highly-anticipated unveilings at Hong Kong Disneyland. The new thematic towers and spires are now in the process of being lifted into the skies and fitted into place onto the castle base.

The castle’s design is inspired by the stories from some of the most iconic Disney Princesses. The re-imagined castle will pay tribute to each of these Disney heroines for pursuing their dreams. The architectural elements embrace the characteristics of each heroine through the interpretation of colors, icons, patterns and cultural features, with uniquely designed towers, turrets and spires dedicated to their respective stories. Guests will be able to recognize the individual elements inspired by their favorite Disney heroines, celebrating a sense of diversity, inclusion and unity.

With its scheduled opening in 2020, the castle will stand as a shining beacon of courage, hope and possibility, inspiring all who dare to dream big. In addition, there will be a brand new, breath-taking nighttime spectacular as well as a new daytime show, details of which will be unveiled at a later date.
