Swing into Spring kicked off colourfully on the 5th of March this year and will be in place at Disneyland Paris for three whole months. During this time, the park, and the characters too of course, are fully decked out in colourful blooms and bright colours to represent the most vibrant season of the year!
Parades and Shows
Leading the festivities is Goofy with ‘Goofy’s Garden Party’, oin which he and his Disney pals strut down Main Street USA in a flowery parade of colour and laughter. Characters you can see include Mickey and Minnie, Donald and Daisy, Chip and Dale, Alice, The Mad Hatter, Winnie the Pooh and friends and plenty more. There’s also the chance to spot some of Goofy’s clever colourful topiaries of your favourite Disney characters. The show is on four times a day (except Tuesdays and Wednesdays) in Central Plaza and there are plenty of spots to get a good view from.
Goofy’s not the only character hogging the limelight during the Swing into Spring festival though – Minnie Mouse has got a few tricks of her own up her sleeve! Minnie and Daisy are joined by an excitable bunch of bunnies for a Cheshire Cat inspired choochoo ride, again along Main Street USA. Minnie’s Little Spring Train also features two Finding Nemo Easter eggs and Nemo and Dory themselves. If there was ever a cure to winter blues – this is definitely it!
Another show you must catch is ‘Spring Promenade’ with Mary Poppins and friends. It’s a 10 minute show which takes place on the Castle Stage and features plenty of famous tunes from the film. If you hang around long enough, you might even get a wave from the chimney sweepers!
Finally, don’t forget to check out Disneyland Paris’ brand new show for spring, The Forest of Enchantment: A Disney Musical Adventure! It’s on every day until the 8th of May at the Chaparral Theater and features a host of your favourite Disney characters including Tarzan, Baloo, Pocahontas and many more – most of whom have never appeared on stage together before. It's packed with loads of great tunes, perfect for a sing along!
