The brand-new “Disney Paint the Night” is a first ever fully LED parade created by Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. The creative team spent more than two years developing over 1,000 scenic and lighting designs to ensure ‘Disney Paint the Night’ will ‘wow’ our guests in a totally new and innovative way.

“Disney Paint the Night” has seven creative floats including Tinker Bell Opening Unit, Monsters, Inc. Unit, Cars Unit, The Little Mermaid Unit, Belle Candlelight Unit, Toy Story Unit, and the Mickey & Friends Finale Unit.  In this all new technologically advanced parade, Mickey is going to “paint the night” in dazzling Disney dreams of light, and with the scintillating powers of Tinker Bell’s pixie dust, Mickey and his friends create fantastic visions, which come to “light” the streets of Hong Kong Disneyland.

Illuminated costumes and makeup to wow the Guests

The vibrant lights are featured not only on the floats, but also on Disney characters, dancers and props. More than 80 Cast Members per night are involved in presenting this never-seen-before nighttime parade.

Over 25 different styles have been applied in the design and construction of the costumes and many of them were designed especially for this parade. Each costume has its own very sophisticated system of lighting controls. The talented Cosmetology team (hair, wigs and make-up) at Hong Kong Disneyland has developed a new technique to create fiber optic wigs that can be styled to create a beautiful glowing effect.  They also developed exquisite fiber optic eyelashes that can change color which significantly enriches the whole parade performance.

Interactive merchandise makes color changing unlimited fun

Interactivity is always the key to enhancing guests’ immersive experiences. During two show-stop moments in the “Disney Paint the Night” parade, guests will be able to “paint the night” with the all-new “Made with Magic” merchandise — “Mickey Magic Paint Brush” — literally changes the colors on select costumes at the touch of a button.  The floats can also “talk” to all the “Made with Magic” merchandise, including the “Mickey Glow Mitt” and “Minnie Glow Bow,” and can change the colors of these items so guests can actively become a part of the parade.

An assortment of entertainment and food & beverage options completes the all-sensory nighttime experience

The Park has also prepared a variety of specialty food and beverage options with a glowing and glittering theme to further complement this brilliant nighttime experience.

To further celebrate the vibrant spirit of “Disney Paint the Night”, guests can pay a visit to the Tomorrowland Bootique and be “painted” in colorful make-up by our professionals before joining the party fun with DJs or enjoying the Park’s all-new illuminated stage performances at the Tomorrowland Party Zone.
