As part of the Disney100 celebration, a new Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse “Dream Makers” Statue will be installed at Hong Kong Disneyland, and Disney has put out a behind-the-scenes video showing its creation.
First announced at D23 Expo 2022, the Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse Statue, “Dream Makers,” will be coming to Hong Kong Disneyland this October (a quick glimpse of the bench dedication says it will be October 16, 2023).
“Dream Makers” celebrates the origin story of Walt Disney and his parks, and it features Walt and Mickey Mouse seated together on a park bench.
It will be placed near Hong Kong Disneyland’s Cinderella’s Carousel.
Here is the video featuring Disney Imagineers designing the statue (some dialog is in Mandarin with English subtitles):
There is also a video of the unboxing of the statue:
In addition to the “Dream Makers” statue, Hong Kong Disneyland will see its “World of Frozen” open in the second half of 2023. This new land will feature two “Frozen”-themed attractions, along with dining and shopping experiences.
