When Tokyo Disneyland released Disney Parks Performances on Youtube to help during the stay at home, we here at Inside the Magic were thrilled. Folks needed this bit of magic and shared it around the world. Now, Hong Kong Disneyland is following in step with a release of Mickey and the Wondrous Book on their YouTube Channel.
What really amazed this writer was the opening song (and it’s lyrics). Originally debuting in 2015 as a ten-year celebration for Hong Kong Disneyland Resort’s opening, Happily Ever After is widely known as the Disney Park theme song for the Happily Ever After Fireworks at Walt Disney World Resort, which first fired off on May 12, 2017. Not yet having attended an overseas Disney park, I thought the song had been written for the spectacular and was so excited to hear about its life before fireworks. The song has been retooled and paced especially for the show, but the nod to its origin is wonderful.
Mickey and the Wondrous Book Full Performance
The official Hong Kong Disneyland YouTube Channel posted the full Mickey and the Wondrous Book performance video on June 1 for the world to enjoy, complete with subtitles and original vocals. You’ll see and hear all your favorite Disney characters in this magical stage attraction that we hope to see in person in Hong Kong one day!
