    Tommorowland entrance


    The most popular attraction in HKDL 'Alien Invasion'. Autopia was closed in order to extend the bloomin' line for it.




    Halloween extends into Fantasyland too in 2009




    Nighttime shots of HKDL












    I think HKDL kinda overdid Jack Skellington




    Coming soon: Christmas 2009

                Fantastic! I wish Disneyland, CA. Would do something more daring for Halloween.

                  I have a question, these 'scary' Halloween things...are they walk through haunted houses type of deals? If so, I am totally there this Halloween/October. I've been to haunts all over the world...Italy, London, Paris, all over the U.S. I would love to see how Disney does them

                      Thanks for these great pictures.

                      I don't know about anyone else, but the first word that came into my mind seeing the HKDL Halloween (in pictures, finally,) was "asian." There's just a certain style of how parks in Asia seem to do Halloween...

                      I really like the Christmas and New Year decorations. It looks like the HKDL Christmas decorations are better than WDW's! (Same with the Chinese New Year decorations... but that's understandable.)

                        The Halloween theming in particular looks awesome...love the Jack Skellington and Sally figures above the entrance.

                        Interesting to see how they're able to incorporate the old town America with CNY...

                        I wonder what the merchandise is like during these three holidays.

                          HKDL does these halloween attractions in a walk-through type of style. You will love this style as this is Disney's answer to its competitor here (Ocean Park) and is unnaturally non-Disneyish and very scary. The haunted hotel packs the most spooks, for e.g. in the group i was in, I was lucky to be in the middle so i could be the least frightened and naturally people who don't want to get scared in these type of attractions go at the very back. But people actually follow you throughout the attraction so no relief there.

                            The idea of Imagineering coming up with a walkthrough haunted house is quite possibly the single coolest prospect I can think of. They could whoop the pants off of Universal and Knott's if given the chance here in the US.

                            Thanks for the pics. Hopefully I'll make it to Hong Kong one day.

                              Maybe so, but it's different in Hong Kong. Visitors are expecting a much scarier Halloween event than in America. The scariest we've gotten here is Ghost Galaxy and people did complain that it seemed a little un-Disney in its frights.

                              I expect if attractions like those are going anywhere it will be in Disney's Hollywood Studios. For years, they've been trying to get another Halloween hard-ticket event in there. One to compete with Halloween Horror Nights, that's more intense. Probably with Nightmare Before Christmas. And there's a lot of space that can be used for a haunted attraction in DHS, I think.
