Disneyland fans will be particularly interested in Alain Littaye’s coverage of Hong Kong Disneyland’s new Disney Paint The Night Parade. This parade is rumored to be similar to the Anaheim park’s parade offering for the 60th anniversary. ~~Rick
Disney Paint The Night Parade
New Parade Premieres at Hong Kong Disneyland
by Alain Littaye
Disney and more blog
The highly awaited Disney Paint The Night parade, created by Steve Davison, has premiered at Hong Kong Disneyland. Thanks to Michael20183, we have the first video showing the full show. I think that Steve Davison and his team did a great job in creating what we could call the “Electrical Parade of the 21st Century”. You’ll hear the Electrical Parade theme music throughout the parade, albeit with a modern musical arrangement. There are plenty of great projection effects, plus a myriad of lights. Take a close look at King Triton’s face on the Little Mermaid float – it’s hard to tell in photo and video, but I’m pretty sure he has a rear projection effect on his face!
This parade is also rumored to come to Disneyland Anaheim for that park’s 60th Anniversary. One more thing about the interactive part with guests “painting” the parade with their “light paint” brush: It’s hard to see on the video how it works – or IF it works – but the parade is such a pleasure to look at and to listen to with its dynamic theme that it’s irrelevant.
I have also added screen captures of the main floats starting with Tinkerbell who opens the parade…
A last picture of the parade kit for the guests, which includes a T-shirt and a light brush!
Let us know what you think of this new parade folks!

I have also a good news for all of you who want to order my Disneyland Paris “From Sketch to Reality” and would like to have it signed specially for you. Normally I can’t do this as I’m too far from Paris, but during September I will be able to personally sign each copy that is ordered, either in French or English!
