Well, it’s almost time for me to bid Adieu to all festivities here at Disneyland Paris.
It has been a whirlwind week, with the launch of the 25th Anniversary – a ceremony with moving speeches from Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek and Catherine Powell, President of Euro Disney S.A.S.; the launch of fabulous new entertainment and attractions; and a BIG surprise performance from superstar John Legend.
We brought you a selection of photos from the event; and if you want to see some of the action via video, the Disneyland Paris YouTube channel has highlights from the event.
And the fun doesn’t stop with this week’s events. The new attractions and entertainment continue at least through the end of this year.
So you HAVE to come see:
- I know I shouldn’t play favorites but – “Disney Illiuminations” was probably my favorite. In the new night-time spectacular, Mickey takes you on a journey through scenes from your favorite Disney movies like “The Lion King” and “The Little Mermaid,” with film projected onto Sleeping Beauty Castle, laser lights, fireworks and other effects that are simply mystifying. You will have to see it AT LEAST three or four times to really get the full WOW!
- “Disney Stars on Parade” – SUPER fun daytime parade with all the Disney characters you know and love. Definitely a great way to relax a bit in the middle of the day and let the entertainment “come to you.”
- The two new stage shows from the Royal Castle Stage at Sleeping Beauty Castle – Mickey Presents “Happy Birthday Disneyland Paris” and “The Starlit Princess Waltz” – are classic Disney entertainment. Singing, dancing, beautiful costumes and more Disney characters than you can count – what more could you ask for?
- Star Tours: The Adventures Continue – one of my favorites in the U.S. – is now here in Paris – Rebel Spy and all!
I’m actually returning for vacation in June, to make sure my family sees all the great new offerings.
Au Revior for now.
Je Retournerai – I Shall Return!
