Disney fireworks back with a bang

People are in for a treat as Hong Kong Disneyland's signature fireworks display changes with the times in a comeback next month after more than four years.
The new fireworks spectacle - "Momentous" - will start running mid-June at the Castle of Magical Dreams. There will be four to five shows a week at 7.30pm or 8.30pm as the park is closed on Tuesdays and Thursdays unless it is a public holiday or a special day when the theme park stays open.

The show will last 20 minutes, featuring about 150 Disney characters from across almost 40 Disney and Pixar stories.

Guests will see a series of six chapters followed by the finale, with the theme being a journey through life featuring various special stages - from "Time Begins" to "Time to Remember." In the finale, people will see the characters empowered to live a life full of adventure, love and friendship - a celebration of all the moments that define Disney characters' lives.

The show will present multisensory effects through a combination of multimedia elements, including projection mapping, water projections, theatrical lighting, lasers, choreographed water fountains, flames, pyrotechnics and firework effects - some of these for the first time.

The show's music will comprise 20 Disney songs and an original theme song, Love the Memory, which encourages guests to live life to the fullest.

Alex Clifton, executive director for entertainment and costuming, said the show is the product of five years' work by a team comprising talents from Hong Kong, the United States and around the world.

"'Momentous' is a breathtaking, never-before-seen production that explores hope and inspiration, love and laughter, hardship and perseverance, reflection and celebration," he said. "This magical experience will take guests on an odyssey of life's cherished moments We can't wait for guests to travel on this journey and be reminded of how precious time is."
