1. Halloween Time Dazzles During Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration – We’ve added three new nighttime spectaculars during the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration, and you can see them all during Halloween Time!

Yesterday, Iron Man himself landed for a special appearance during the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts presentation at the 2015 D23 EXPO. And next year, Hong Kong Disneyland guests will have the opportunity to meet and take photos with the Super Hero when Iron Man Experience opens.
Iron Man Experience will take guests on an epic adventure against the forces of evil over the streets and in the sky above Hong Kong.
The adventure begins at the new Stark Expo – a showcase of new and exciting technologies coming soon from Stark Industries – which Tony Stark has brought to Tomorrowland. At the expo, guests will experience the history of Stark Industries through inventions by the company’s founder, Howard Stark, and into the present day, where Tony Stark is inspiring his team of scientists and engineers to make our lives better, more convenient and safer through technology.
One of the best examples of the new technology showcased at the Stark Expo will be the innovative vehicle called the Iron Wing. On Iron Man Experience, guests will board the Iron Wing for a short flight to new Hong Kong Stark Tower, where they find themselves in a fight – alongside Iron Man – against the evil forces of Hydra.
What happens next? Find out when Iron Man Experience opens in 2016!
