Hong Kong Disneyland Fireworks suspension
It is indeed a shock news for everyone who loves princess theme and fireworks. Not only because the Sleeping Beauty Castle is the symbol of Disneyland, but also the nightly fireworks show is always a highlight of the visit. The Sleeping Beauty Castle and Disneyland fireworks “Disney in the Stars” have been there with their visitors everyday since the opening of Hong Kong Disneyland 12 years ago.
However, Hong Kong’s Disneyland castle is among the lowest of the 6 Disneyland in the world. The height of Sleeping Beauty Castle in Hong Kong is only 23.5 meters (same with the one in California) and the height of the rest of Disneyland castle are all above 50 meters. Especially when the new Shanghai Disneyland opened last year with a 69-meter Enchanted Storybook Castle and larger park, Hong Kong Disneyland is under the pressure of losing potential customers. New improvement is in need.
