“World-class, state-of-the-art entertainment shows and performances are at the heart of the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort experience. We treasure Filipino talent and their passion of music and have been recruiting cast members from the Philippines even before we opened the Park ten years ago,” said David Lightbody, Director, Entertainment & Costuming, Hong Kong Disneyland Resort.
After the completion of the park’s expansion with the launch of the three latest themed lands and the newly launched nighttime spectacular ‘Disney Paint the Night,’ we have seen the number of our Filipino cast members increase every year. With a diverse range of cast members from over 30 different nationalities, Filipino cast members currently hold major roles in a range of shows, both behind the scenes and on stage. The quality and energy of their performances has played an instrumental role in touching people’s heart and providing guests with the fondest memories of their Disney experience.”
A Unique Musical Journey at Hong Kong Disneyland
If you have been to Disneyland, you would know that fun feeling of entering the park. It is just magical! All Filipino guests can embark on their own musical journey at Hong Kong Disneyland. The music begins right from the very moment they enter, with amazing tunes by the Hong Kong Disneyland Band, and the various atmospheric shows in the different themed lands. Guests can also experience the magic of the Broadway-style musicals, “The Golden Mickeys” and the “Festival of the Lion King”, and immerse themselves in the colorful Flights of Fantasy Parade.
There are also newly launched theme lands – Asia-exclusive Toy Story Land, one-of-a-kind Grizzly Gulch and Mystic Point and try out the Filipino guests’ top three favorite attractions of last year including the Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars, Space Mountain and Mystic Manor. Then of course, look around for Mickey and friends loitering in the park, including the latest additions to the park, Queen Elsa and Princess Anna from Frozen.
The All-New “Disney Paint the Night” Spectacular
There are more than 740,000 LED lights, the floats bring classic Disney and Disney•Pixar stories to life with an interactive touch while illuminating the entire parade route every night. During the parade’s two show stop moments, guests can become a part of the parade by using the specially designed merchandises such as the Made with Magic Paint Brush, Mickey Glow Mitt and Minnie Glow Bow to interact with the floats! How awesome!
