TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — The New Taipei City Government is planning to turn its annual Christmasland into Disneyland this year by introducing familiar Disney characters, scenes, and theme songs to the venue, according to CNA.
Every year the city government holds the year-end event with a number of fantastic light installations, games, and activities, attracting a great number of visitors.
The city government said that this year it plans to work together with The Walt Disney Company to bring classic Disney elements such as characters from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” and “Alice in Wonderland” into the light shows and installations.
New Taipei City Department of Tourism and Information Commissioner Chang Chi-chiang (張其強) said that the bamboo installation art in New Taipei City Plaza, where Christmasland’s main light show usually takes place, will be turned into a Christmas tree and Christmasland will extend into the Fuzhong Shopping Area.
Chang said that the city government is currently negotiating with Disney about the authorization. He added that the opening time of Christmasland is still to be determined, but it is estimated that it will be in mid-November.
