Hong Kong Disneyland will resume its signature fireworks show in 2022, ending a four-year hiatus due to the renovation of the iconic castle at the center of the pyrotechnics display.

The theme park announced Tuesday that the multimedia show at the Castle of Magical Dreams will include theatrical lighting, lasers, choreographed water fountains and other colorful elements.

“Featuring a rich combination of beloved Disney character animations, music and multimedia effects, we can’t wait for guests to experience this heartwarming journey down memory lane,” Hong Kong Disneyland wrote in a press release.

The Castle of Magical Dreams, which opened to the public last November as part of the park’s 15th anniversary celebration, replaced the old Sleeping Beauty Castle. The park’s last fireworks display was in 2018.

The new castle takes inspiration from over a dozen stories of Disney princesses and queens including Snow White, Cinderella and Ariel the mermaid.

Disneyland’s announcement about the return of its fireworks display comes two weeks after the park raised its ticket prices. A one-day adult ticket on “peak days” now costs HK$699 (US$89), up almost 10% from its earlier price of HK$639 (US$$82). The price of regular, “non-peak” days remains unchanged.

It’s the sixth time that Hong Kong Disneyland has increased ticket prices since it opened in 2005, according to the SCMP.

Implementing capacity control, temperature checks and social distancing measures, the park reopened for business in February as the local epidemic eased.
