A Parade not to miss in Hong Kong Disneyland


Parade at Hong Kong Disneyland
Hong Kong Disneyland offers some of the most interesting parades and shows if you are planning on going there anytime soon. As this is my second visit to the theme park, I made it a point to catch all the shows and the much talked about Flights of Fantasy Parade that takes place on Main Street, U.S.A here in Hong Kong Disneyland. 

While those of you who have not been here, this is one of the highly recommended shows to see and it takes place once a day and you can get the schedule from the Hong Kong Disneyland Calender for the timings. Featuring all the famous Disney characters like Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Donald Duck, Dumbo, Winnie the Pooh, Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Belle, Baloo, King Louie, Tantor, Simba, Tinkerbell, Stitch, Woody, and Buzz Lightyear, they will be seen parading along the main street accompanied by cheerful and colourful dancers.

A total of seven unique floats will also be in the parade which are Mickey's Magical Airship, Caught Up in Daydreams, Romance Takes Wing, Jumpin' Jungle Jam, The Magic of Pixie Dust, Hangin' Ten and Ridin' High, and To Infinity and Beyond. The entire parade will take place for about 20 minutes where guests line up on both sides of the main street to see this. They also make two stops to perform to the waiting audience along the way.

Below are various pictures taken during the show which I caught in early June when I visited the park to check out the Hong Kong Disneyland new rides. Please click on the picture to see the full size images and enjoy.

Flights of Fantasy originally premiered at Hong Kong Disneyland on January 18, 2011 as part of the Celebration in the Air, a year-long event celebrating the park's fifth anniversary. This parade also replaced the former Disney on Parade, which had been running since the park opened in 2005 here in Hong Kong. You can catch the Flights of Fantasy parade at 12:30pm or 3:30pm from the Storybook Theatre to the Main Street as this is a parade not to miss in Hong Kong Disneyland.
