Jewel Has A Free Disney Pop-Up With Toy Story & Marvel Photo Ops, Plus Magical Fountain Light Show

Disney100 at Jewel Changi

Throw a stone into a crowd and you’ll probably hit someone that can recite the storyline of Beauty and the Beast, or belt out A Whole New World without referring to Young or old, Disney films hold a special place in many of our hearts and this year, it’s time to take out the candles as they turn a hundred years old. 

From now till 9th April 2023, you can immerse yourself in lots of Disney-themed photo ops and performances at Jewel Changi Airport – most of these are free for all to enjoy. Snap photos with photo installations of movies like Up, Snow White and Dr Strange at the IG-ready spots below. 

Disney-themed light & sound show at the HSBC Rain Vortex 

Disney100 Changi - Rain Vortex

For Disney heads, one of the best things about Disneyland is the pretty visuals and nostalgic music. You can find both at the limited-time Disney100 Light & Sound Show at the HSBC Rain Vortex. Grab a seat near the Mickey Steam Boat display for the best views.

Disney100 Changi - Stage

Featuring iconic Disney characters from across the century, this whimsical show comes complete with background instrumentals to When You Wish Upon A Star and You’ve Got A Friend In Me that you can croon to with your kids.

Exclusive Disney photo-ops at Shiseido Forest Valley & L5

Disney100 Changi - Mickey Statue

There’s nothing more iconic to Disney than Mickey Mouse. Find a 4m-tall platinum statue of the most famous rodent in the world at the entrance of the Shiseido Forest Valley, right behind a LED display of a Disney 100 archway you can walk through.

Now, I’ve always wanted to be in a Disney movie. But while it’s impossible to zap yourself into a 2D character and walk into a TV screen, you can feel like you’re in a Disney, Pixar, Marvel, or Star Wars film at the 10 exclusive pop-up installations scattered across Jewel.

Snow White

If the kids are feeling grumpy or sleepy, posing with the dreamy Snow White ought to cheer them up. Kudos to OG fans who get the pun.

Disney100 Changi - Inside Out

And whether you resonate more with the characters of Joy or Sadness, hop behind the “control panel” of the Inside Out installation to snap a selfie with both.

Disney100 Changi - Steamboat Willie

Once you reach the Steamboat Willie exhibit, give the overhead rope a little yoink. It ain’t just for display – pulling this interactive feature causes steam to emit from the top of the chimney.

 Little Wonders Of Singapore

Apart from Disney-themed exhibits, you can also find pretty Singapore-themed displays inspired by the Singapore Zoo and our void decks. These also tie into elements of Disney – take a guess or read the accompanying sign boards to find out more.

Disney100 Changi - Encanto

The Madrigals? Boy have they stolen our hearts in the cinemas. Head up to Level 5 to find the Encanto backdrop, which is as vibrant and colourful as the film is. Plus, here’s a little pro tip: try to snap all your photos in the evenings, before it’s fully dark out for the best lighting.

Star Wars & Dr Strange displays at the Canopy Park, with free entry 

If there’s anything a Singaporean could love more than our favourite childhood show, it’s free things. From 13th-15th January 2023, entry to the Canopy Park is F.O.C if you dress up in your best Disney-inspired outfit. Now’s the time to dust off that ol’ Halloween costume or your kids’ princess dress.

Disney100 Changi - Doctor Strange

Feign mastery of the Mystic Arts at the Doctor Strange exhibit, which mimics the MCU’s Interdimensional Portal. With artificial snow blasting over the installation, our guess is that this exhibit gives a nod towards Spiderman 3’s scene with the snow in the sanctum. Pretty cool.

Try shooting at some of the exhibits at an angle for a better angle for the ‘Gram.

Disney100 Changi - Star Wars

Of course, no Disney event is complete without homage to Star Wars. Most notably, this Star Wars exhibit features the adorable Baby Yoda that bobbles up and down on a lever – a perfect opportunity for an IG Boomerang 

Disney100 Changi - Up

It doesn’t matter if you’re as old as Carl Fredricksen or as young as Rusell, you’ll want to snap a photo with at the Up installation featuring the iconic house-on-balloons and Dug the dog.

Venue: Canopy Park
Admission: From $6/entry for Singaporeans | From $8/entry for a standard ticket
Free if you dress up in a Disney theme from 13th-15th January 2023.
