Once again, Disney Parks’ entertainment offerings were affected by severe supply shortages, altering Guests’ experiences.

Disney Parks worldwide are known to have some of the most impressive nighttime spectaculars in the theme park industry. Whether you’re visiting Disneyland in California, Walt Disney World in Florida, Disneyland Paris, Shanghai Disney Resort, Hong Kong Disneyland, or Tokyo Disney Resort, your day will surely end most magically with a breathtaking firework spectacular at the castle in the heart of the Park you’re visiting or a fantastic nighttime show at one of the Park’s bodies of water.

Unfortunately, fans visiting Hong Kong Disneyland will have to settle for a modified version of the Park’s nighttime spectacular, as Disney Park’s entertainment offerings were, once again, hit by supply shortages in the region. Per Hong Kong Disneyland’s official website, the nighttime spectacular Momentous will have modified presentations throughout the month.

The Disney Park’s website states that the following presentations of the Momentous nighttime spectaculars will have no pyrotechnics and fireworks effects:

  • December 2 through December 5: Out of respect
  • December 7, 12, 14: Due to supply challenges

Unfortunately, this is not the first time Hong Kong Disneyland has dealt with supply chain shortages. The Park announced that presentations of Momentous would be modified throughout November, commenting that presentations would occur without pyrotechnics and fireworks effects, similar to this month’s announcement.

Earlier this year, Hong Kong Disneyland also modified some of its daytime entertainment offerings, adding several water fountains, sprinklers, and water hoses to the Park’s parades, entertainment offerings, and even character interactions to offer Guests a much-needed way to cool down and beat the summer heat. Some of the modified offerings included the show “Follow Your Dreams,” Pixar Water Play Street Party!, and the Toy Soldier Boot Camp show at Toy Story Land.

Momentous is Hong Kong Disneyland’s latest nighttime spectacular, which debuted in June despite inclement weather. Disney describes the nighttime spectacular as follows:

The Most Magical Show on Earth has arrived. Are you ready for the most mesmerizing nighttime experience in Hong Kong? Prepare yourself for “Momentous,” an all-new nighttime spectacular at Hong Kong Disneyland. Beginning June 18, 2022, this much-anticipated show—filled with magic and light—will illuminate the night sky with about 20 minutes of music and memorable moments in one monumental journey.
