Hong Kong's Paint the Night
While the Paint the Night Electrical Parade is a feature part of the Disneyland 60th Anniversary celebration, it actually got its start in Hong Kong Disneyland, where a slightly shorter version still runs regularly. There are some differences over there, though, both in the parade routing and in minor details in the floats. Here's a brief photo tour of their parade!
|As with Disneyland's, Hong Kong's Paint the Night begins with Tinker Bell and an escort of fairies, but her friends, Rosetta, Iridessa, and Silvermist, are missing.
|Tink is still super photogenic here, though!
|Monsters, Inc. comes next--no World of Color leftover puppets here--with the same float as California's.
|Next is the Cars segment with Lightning McQueen...
|And the sparkling Mac as well.
|The Little Mermaid is next, dazzling as with ours. No Finding Nemo tie-in, though.
|The princess float is just Belle. Rapunzel and Cinderella are not present.

|Next comes Toy Story. Woody sits atop Slink, with Buzz (not pictured) to the side. No Little Green Men mini-float.
|Finally, we have Mickey and friends. Yes, this means no Frozen float in Hong Kong. Also, instead of fan spinners, the dancers are on pogo sticks.
|The character floats are the same, though. Goofy leads the way.
|Then comes Donald.
|Minnie is right before Mickey.
|And the mouse himself with the hypnotizing helix float culminates the parade!
