From those first precious moments, our lives are filled with great experiences, achievements, and sometimes difficulties. Through it all, we come to treasure those with whom we share the journey of life and all the adventures along the way.
This is the story of “Momentous,” the breathtaking new nighttime spectacular opening mid-June at Hong Kong Disneyland. The Castle of Magical Dreams becomes a canvas, illuminated for the first time with large scale projection mapping technology that highlights and transforms the castle’s features as the narrative unfolds.
Through “Momentous,” we embark on the journey of a lifetime, from tender new beginnings and the playful joy of childhood to growing up, finding ourselves, falling in love, overcoming obstacles and reminiscing about those who inspire us. Along the way, we experience these moments with dozens of beloved characters from Disney Animation and Pixar stories including “Dumbo,” “The Lion King,” “Peter Pan,” “Frozen,” “Zootopia,” “Coco,” “Up,” “Tangled” and so many more!
“Momentous” combines stunning projection technology with intricately designed lighting and laser effects, pyrotechnics, fireworks effects, flames, and choreographed fountains to tell a story and create a spectacle unlike anything ever seen at Hong Kong Disneyland. Here’s a look behind the scenes as our Disney Live Entertainment team prepares “Momentous” for its grand debut.
The musical score for “Momentous” features new arrangements of familiar Disney tunes, along with an original song created as the theme song for this show, “Love the Memory.” This soaring anthem encourages us to celebrate life’s many memorable moments together and to live each one to the fullest.
“Momentous” reminds us to take time to appreciate our families and loved ones and to celebrate life’s joyful moments as we look forward to an encouraging future ahead. I certainly love the memory of my first visit to Hong Kong Disneyland with my family in 2016, and I can’t wait to get back there again to make more wonderful memories, standing in front of the Castle of Magical Dreams to experience “Momentous.”
