        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.

              The vampire girl is portrayed by angelababy, Angela Yeung Wing (HK artist)
              And the werewolf is portrayed by 崔豪進 (Korean Artist)

              I think last year's promotion is much more attractive, the starring just cuts the promotion budget.


              BTW, thanks for sharing, this year Mickeys and Minnie costume is a vintage.
              Mickey is wearing a vampire cloak, and Minnie dresses in Scarlet! Nice!

                ORDDU: I don't believe this edgy type of way of celebrating Halloween would work well in the American Disney parks. But as someone else already said, they have to cater to the Asian clientel. I'm just surprised that Asians are so accepting of such stark horror when it comes to celebrating Halloween. They never used to celebrate it before there was a Hong Kong Disneyland, did they???

                  Halloween has been around for quite some time. Well not that long, but certainly before HKDL.

                    ORDDU: Well, yes, it's been around for a long time but not all cultures acknowledge it and we have no idea how Hong Kong has been relating to it before HKDL came along.

                      As a Hongkonger, though Halloween is not a tradition or religious festival to us, we celebrate it because it's a fun and "commercial" festival. Many kindergartens and schools hold Halloween Parties in late October. In some kindergartens, kids wear costumes on that day.I used to trick-or-treat around in campus when I was in secondary school. (indeed we just shared candies, and this culture varies from school to school)
                      In Lanwaifong, there are Halloween street parties very year long before the HKDSL opened.
                      I think ocean park has held the Halloween event for many years too. It has been a common festival amongst youngers and young adults for a long time in Hong Kong. If you google lanwaifong and Halloween, you will find lots of photos about it.

                          Sorry for not being clear Witchies! ree523 pretty much said what I meant.

                          As a regional example, here in the Philippines, Christmas is a big thing because we are predominantly Christian country 92.6% (81% Catholic, 11.6 Protestant) for the past few hundred of years. Halloween, however, is not part of our culture except in the context of mall decor. October 31 is usually a holiday for us because Nov. 1 & 2 are All Saints and All Souls Days respectively.

                          When I was kid, we'd have costume parties, usually arranged by rich families or kids' clubs (like McDonalds or something), but trick or treating was rare. The only one who did it were the kids in the rich neighborhoods. However, in the past ten years, because to media, and the malls encouraging kids to go trick or treating at the different stores in the malls, it has since to my surprise spread to the middle class neighborhoods.

                          I can imagine that it has grown in a similar manner in HK, but to a different extent.

                            I didn't take photos with Donald and Daisy, but he is a Vampire Duck.

                              ORWEN: I wonder if Mystic Manor will be next year's focal point for HKDL's Halloween, since it's going to be scary and creepy? At least it'll be open by then.
