  • Trip Report TDLFAN's Photo heavy Halloween Trip Report from HKDL

    TDLFAN attended Hong Kong Disneyland last week to enjoy this year's halloween event, which is available to guests at regular day prices from thursdays through Sundays every week until the end of october. A special reduced price ticket for guests who want to attend the park from 6pm on is also available for sale. On these days.. HKDL is opened until 11pm. Remember.. Halloween may not be available all days of the week, but when it is.. the event is included at regular price, unlike the halloween parties at the MK and DL. TDLFAN thinks this is a great value for day guests at HKDL. There will be over 125 photos in this report.. so here is the first batch..

    The decor in particular is stunning this year... and this is what happens when Maleficent takes over the tiniest Disney kingdom on Earth... but first... a warning... MUHAHAHAHA....


    Arriving at HKDL's promenade..


    Halloween banners on the promenade...






    That lovely fountain...




    Nice lamp post banners with ornamental Meleficent and Murphy tops.


    Yes, she rules over the main entrance... VERY NICE decor..








    Grab your map and show schedule and let's go.








    Cactuses around Town Square add an air of foreboding..


    The Mice in their halloween garbs.. entertaining guests.


    The Main Street Cemetery.


    Those nice banners again..


    They lead to this spectacular Murphy display at the Hub.




    Murphy sits silent throughout the day but when night falls.. beware, it comes alive with smokey delight and growling fury...


    ...And the band played on.


    Meanwhile.. inside the Emporium.. Halloween decor is everywhere.










    Chip and Dale entertain guests.


    Annual Passholder exclusive gift! This is a Maleficent mousepad. TDLFAN was happy to receive his..


    Every guest entering HKDL recieves this at the door.. but turn it around..


    ...and on the backside, you will find a pair of holographic glasses and the chance to get limited edition stickers at several areas of the park. TDLFAN was game and joined the fun.


    This is a Cast Member exclusive button. Not for sale. CMs wear this on their costumes...


    The Custodial Team in action.


    Halloween balloons exclusive to HKDL, and they light up at night!


    Chocolate mousee in a souvenir cup. They even give you a small cardboard box to store your souvenir cup and eating your dessert. Nice touch.


    The HKDL band plays for guests in their finest Halloween outfits.


    Main Street Bakery sells some special halloween sweets..




    TO BE CONTINUED... with visits to the Haunted Hotel, Demon Jungle.. and other areas of the park... so check back soon.

      Wow! Thanks for the great photos, TDLFAN!!!

      LOVE the new FULL bodied AA dragon near the castle, and the one over the entry looks fantastic, too!!!!! Like the mask/holographic glasses as give aways, nice touch. Mylar light up balloon looks good, too.

      The graveyard on christmas tree point, just looks a little strange at the center of town square.

      The Maleficent figure over the entry gates - somthing is just wrong with the sculpture, they didn't capture her face, correctly. Mal, has a longer chin.

      Mickey and Minnies outfits look nicely detailed, but not Halloweenie, enough. Chip and Dale outfit look a little plain too.
      Critter Country's a mess ev'r since the Country Bears were kicked out. Ya can't cover pooh with honey and 'spect people ta like it.

                      Here is the 2nd set of photos from HKDL's Halloween. The 3rd set will be up sometime tomorrow so make sure you check back!!!

                      The temporary halloween signs in Adventureland and nicely themed.


                      TDLFAN just loves the lush atmosphere of this Adventureland... so DAK-like and overall beautiful.






                      Menu boards at the Tahitian Terrace get the halloween treatment.




                      This is not the cave of wonders.


                      River View Cafe in halloween mode.


                      Halloween spook on the Jungle River Cruise.


                      Halloween photo spot.


                      Haunted Pit Stop is opened for business.




                      Over in Fantasyland.. this photo spot is available near Philharmagic.


                      TDLFAN loves the nicely manicured gardens of Fantasyland.


                      Best Mickey's Philharmagic queue and facade on Earth.






                      CM does her best to sell some of HKDL's exclusive halloween merchandise.


                      This may very well be TDLFAN's halloween costume this year.


                      The trees around Fantasyland have grown big and tall.. to the point that some of the circus tent facades are partially covered. This gives Fantasyland a more lush feel and greenery, which is what other Fantasylands in this same design lack.. especially the MK's.






                      Space Mountain now features the fun "Ghost Galaxy" overlay, which lucky californians also get to enjoy at DLR.


                      Cute tee.


                      Tomorrowland.


                      TDLFAN and the Mice.


                      The Haunted Hotel on Main Street is opened for business...


                      Warnings! Warnings!.. this is not a mickey mouse ride. Actually, it's not even a ride..


                      Entrance to the Haunted Hotel..


                      Lobby scene as you enter the Haunted Hotel... but after this shot was taken.. a spooky CM told me to put the camera away or else... so no more pictures allowed inside the scary maze.


                      After some good old fashion screams at the Haunted Hotel, we are about to dare the Demon Jungle..


                      Demon Jungle is the other scary maze in Adventureland. TDLFAN loved the theming in this particular maze, which for being a temporary attraction, it was very well done.




                      Screams all the way to the end.. LOL!!!


                      Temporary restrooms are set up outside Demon Jungle..


                      Time for a quick afternoon meal at the Starliner Diner.


                      Cheeseburger/fries combo with mango pudding.


                      Male CMs are wearing this Maleficent strap around their arms.. TDLFAN wants one.


                      The CM gals are wearing Maleficent horns.


                      The Corner Cafe on Main Street is featuring special Halloween menus in their october selection...


                      TO BE CONTINUED... More photos to come by tomorrow night.. and a look at some of the other main events for halloween at HKDL!!! So check back again tomorrow evening, please!!!

                            I must say, some of these decorations... The photo-spots, the random demons/skeletons on pathways in Adventureland... Lookin' a little Halloween store-ish.

                              We were sent over there with the message that only we would defend Disney quality.. We learnt quickly that the Japanese culture speaks to a level of quality that is hard to comprehend. They were all unbelievably skilled and willing to do the right thing.
