You might think it’s a bit early to be talking about Halloween, but at Disneyland Paris, it’s never too early! Preparations are already underway for an epic celebration, with ‘Disney’s Halloween Festival’ kicking off on 1st October. This amazing festival offers lots of spooky fun for all ages and what’s even better, is that it’s all included with your Disneyland Paris tickets. That’s not all though, there’s also an exclusive Halloween Party for one night only on 31st October. You'll need a separate ticket to attend, but this year it’s going to be “bigger, better and badder” than ever before, not to mention it finishes at 2am!
Disney’s Halloween Festival will totally transform the park, with vibrant pumpkins, spooky decorations, scarecrows and much more. You’ll want to snap plenty of selfies along Main Street USA as it looks incredible. If you’re visiting Disneyland Paris during the spooky season, read on to find out about all the amazing Halloween entertainment…
This is sure to be one of the highlights of your visit, as you’ll get the chance to see all of your favourite characters in one place. Wave along to Mickey and the gang as they glide through the park on a series of dazzling floats. Mickey has a brand new float especially for the occasion and the characters will be dressed in their finest autumn attire, so make sure you’ve got your camera at the ready to take some photos.
This is your chance to meet the villains you love to hate! The baddies will be out in full force for Disney’s Halloween Festival and a visit wouldn’t be complete until you’ve met them. Head over to the Castle Courtyard area, where you’ll come face to face with the evil Maleficent. If you’re brave enough that is! Keep a look out, because you never know when or where these villains are going to appear, and they might just sneak up on you.
Of course, you’ll also be able to meet the good guys. Minnie Mouse, Pluto, Stitch and Goofy will be dressed in their elaborate Halloween costumes ready to meet guests and sign your autograph book.
