Hong Kong Disneyland has had a bit of shaky summer with re-opening, closing and opening again. But, even with outside issues the park has continued work on their massive castle remodel, titled “Castle of Magical Dreams.” Thanks to Disney Magic Kingdom Blog, we are able to see the nearly finished product.
Originally, the Hong Kong Disneyland castle was a replica of the Sleeping Beauty Castle seen at California’s Disneyland park. This isn’t the first time a castle was, essentially, copied, as Tokyo Disneyland did the same thing with Magic Kingdom’s Cinderella Castle at Walt Disney World.
Seen on the back of the castle are the icons of the 13 Disney Princess films represented in this castle.
When looking at the front of the castle, it is quite impressive to see how far Disney has come with this project. The castle renovations were announced in 2016, with most of the visible work happening in 2019. This GIF showcases the original castle and what has been added since.
This new rendition of the castle towers above the original design. While not entirely complete, this current view gets us excited for the detail work that will show up in the weeks to come.
You can see more of the Castle of Magical Dreams, as well as other areas of Hong Kong Disneyland, in the walkthrough video of the park above.
