Hong Kong Disneyland Resort has announced that it will be suspending its signature nightly fireworks display from Jan 2 next year as it carries out a HK$10.9 billion (US$1.4 billion) multi-year expansion project. However, it is not yet clear if the 12-minutes fireworks show will be reinstated once the makeover of Hong Kong's Disneyland is over.
"The nightly fireworks extravaganza will stage its finale on Jan 1, 2018," Hong Kong Disneyland said in a press release. "Sleeping Beauty Castle will then start its magical transformation in early January as part of the park's multi-year expansion plan. The castle will return after a glamorous makeover with a completely new daytime show and nighttime spectacular featuring brand-new entertainment experiences that reach new heights," the statement added.
In October, the Disneyland officially started the multi-year transformation of the park that will be completed in phases between next year and 2023.
According to the new expansion plan, the park will launch new themed areas, attractions and entertainment almost every year during the six-year project. Amon all of these, Moana-themed entertainment venue in Adventureland will be the first one to open.
