Mickey and Friends, Hyperspace Mountain, and Iron Man Experience—these are just a few of the many reasons many Filipinos will be visiting Hong Kong Disneyland this spring. But if you’re seeking another reason to visit, make it the popular “Carnivale of Stars” celebration, which returns to Hong Kong Disneyland from March 7 to June 26.
“Carnivale of Stars” is Hong Kong Disneyland’s spring-themed seasonal offering starring an impressively wide cast of Disney and Marvel characters. New Disney characters often make their debut at Hong Kong Disneyland during the Carnivale, making it a must-visit moment for Disney fans. The resort also introduces a series of exclusive springtime experiences, and this year’s lineup may be the most magical yet.
First, you’ll want to kick off your springtime egg-sperience with the all-new Disney Stars Springtime Celebration performance on the Castle Hub Stage featuring Mickey and friends in their springtime best. We’re especially looking forward to Cookie, Duffy the Disney Bear’s new friend, who will be joining the springtime fun for the first time. Fans have traveled from Japan and around the world to Hong Kong to be able to meet her.
The popular Disney-themed character hunt is also back. Over 100 character-themed egg will once again be scattered around the resort – with exciting new additions waiting to be discovered. Spot your favorite Disney friends, Marvel heroes and 13 new ones, including The Wasp, Captain Marvel and Bo Peep and Slinky Dog from “Toy Story.”
As you go around egg-sploring, make sure you stop by the Fantasy Gardens and hub area to see the beautiful landscaping recreating scenes from “The Lion King” and “Moana.” Spot Mickey and Minnie admiring blooming flowers, Goofy and Pluto enjoying the weather, Bambi playing hide-and-seek with Thumper and Flower, and Winnie the Pooh having a picnic with his pals. It’s the perfect springtime selfie moment.
For the thrill seekers and Marvel fans, the new Ant-Man and The Wasp: Nano Battle! will be a definite highlight of the visit. Hong Kong Disneyland partnered closely with Marvel Studios to bring the cinema experience to life. It will be a must-see experience for superheroes of all sizes.
Delicious food and delightful flavors
Dining can be challenging at Hong Kong Disneyland where there are so many delicious options. From the Instagram-worthy Mickey waffles to the delightful dishes offered at the hotel restaurants, the struggle is real—and it’s about to intensify with the “Carnivale of Stars.”
This spring, Hong Kong Disneyland will offer over 50 tasty new treats inspired by the spring blossoms decorating the park and the hotels. At the Main Street Corner Cafe Hosted by Coca-Cola, you can relax with the limited edition Duffy and Friends Afternoon Tea Set, served with an adorable Duffy and Friends collectible placemat.
For a bigger bite, Disney Explorers Lodge’s World of Color Restaurant will be serving Spring Colorful Brunch—a variety of refreshing, healthy and vegetarian-friendly meals like plant-based rice paper rolls and pan-fried omnipork hash brown with saffron vegenaise.
Spring magic at the hotels
There is so much to experience at Hong Kong Disneyland which is why we recommend spending an entire weekend there for a complete resort experience. The hotels are conveniently located near the park, making it easier to return to the action the next day. Hong Kong Disneyland offers three themed resort hotels—the exotic Disney Explorers Lodge, elegant Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel and glamorous Disney’s Hollywood Hotel.
If you’re seeking a different pace, the hotels also offer a wide array of fun-filled springtime family activities. Each hotel offers its own unique arts and crafts classes focusing on Disney-themed trinkets such as Duffy Eggstravaganza Key Chains, Winnie the Pooh and Friends ornaments and Mickey Eggstravaganza Windmills.
Guests staying at the hotels between April 19 and 28 can also join the new Easter Magicarnival, a series of outdoor games and activities on the lawns of the three hotels. There will be Disney-themed bouncy castles, unique obstacle courses and game booths offering fun for the whole family.
We can’t discuss the hotels without mentioining the amazing rooms. Guests staying at any of the hotels during the “Carnivale of Stars” will receive a complimentary spring-themed souvenir including an amenities box and Disney slippers. A seasonal overlay is also available to bring an extra springtime touch to your room.
Hong Kong Disneyland can make birthdays extra special. The hotels can surprise the celebrant with a complimentary towel folded birthday cake and birthday card. You can also order special birthday cakes for your birthday star and have their favorite Disney friend join the celebration.
Obsessed with Elsa, Anna and Olaf? Stay at Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel’s Kingdom Club Frozen Suite for your very own slice of Arendelle. The snowy-themed suites feature Frozen-inspired decor including a sofa that looks like Kristoff’s sleigh, exclusive amenities and an afternoon tea set. Kingdom Club guests also get access to personalized services, complimentary snacks and beverages, bedtime stories with Disney friends and more.
And because you’ll want to bring the magic home (Trust us, you will. We always do and now our room is like a shrine to Duffy), stop by the shops to indulge in 80 exclusive seasonal souvenirs available only this spring, including accessories, apparel, plush toys, stationery, pins and more.
We’re already eyeing the Easter Bunny and Spring-themed Duffy and Friends plush toys and the phone cases.
