This year, 11th November officially marked the beginning of Christmas at Disneyland Paris. ‘Disney’s Enchanted Christmas’ is now in full swing, and the park has undergone a spectacular transformation, turning it into a winter wonderland, in preparation for the annual event. With thousands of sparkling lights, colourful decorations and an enormous tree now in place, it really is beginning to look a lot like Christmas. It’s not too late to experience the magic for yourself, and if you’re thinking of visiting over the festive season, here’s what you can expect…
Disney’s Christmas Parade:
One of our favourite things about Disneyland Paris at Christmas, is the chance to see the Disney characters dressed in their finest Christmas attire. If you’ll be visiting over the festive period, make the most of the rare opportunity to take photos with your favourites dressed in Christmas-themed costumes. You can see characters in their special outfits on full display during Disney’s Christmas Parade which runs daily. Wave to Mickey, Minnie and even Santa Claus himself, as they make their way down Main Street USA on enormous festive floats, as the sound of joyful music fills the air. This is a show that can’t fail to put a smile on your face.
Mickey’s Magical Christmas Lights:
Watch Mickey, Minnie and the gang come together to light up the towering Christmas tree at the Town Square. Watch in awe as the stunning tree is illuminated with glittering lights and join in the carol singing to get yourself into the Christmas spirit. Taking place every day, this is a true Christmas highlight that you won’t want to miss!
Make sure you’ve got your Christmas list ready as you’ll be able to hand it over to Santa in a special meet and greet experience at his very own lodge. You’ll actually be able to meet Mr Claus and take photos to remember the magical moment. Look out for Thumper and Miss Bunny who will be there too, dressed in their very best Christmas attire. There’s also a limited time only meet and greet opportunity with the newest Disney princess Moana (held at the Walt Disney Studios Park) so if you’re visiting the parks soon, get ready to snap a few selfies!
Disney Dreams! Of Christmas:
Each night, The Disney Dreams! fireworks spectacular acts as the grand finale, closing the park with a bang. The breath-taking display receives a Christmas makeover, featuring fountains, lights and plenty of special effects as scenes from classic Disney movies are projected onto Sleeping Beauty’s castle. If you’re a fan of Frozen, look out for Anna, Elsa and the adorable Olaf. With Christmas music echoing through the park, can you think of a better way to end the day?
A Fabulous Frozen Sing-Along:
Elsa and Anna will be making another appearance in this special Frozen sing-along that includes classic hits like “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” and of course “Let it Go”. Get ready to give it your best as you belt out the songs with the rest of the crowd. You can also spot the famous sisters as they make their way through the streets of the park in a magnificent horse-drawn carriage for A Royal Welcome. Be sure to give them a wave!
