Unfortunately, I’m not actually there this time; but it will be the next best thing because I – and you too – can watch the Anniversary Celebration live streaming through the Disney Parks Blog.
Tomorrow (April 12) is the official anniversary date – Disneyland Paris officially opened its gates on April 12, 1992.
To celebrate, the cast there has prepared a whole bunch of great activities. They start VERY early morning for us (Paris is six hours ahead of us in Eastern time and 9 hours ahead of our Western U.S.readers); but I know are true blue Disney Parks Blog fans would want to know all the details:
- SPECIAL LIVE STREAM – At 9 a.m. (Paris Time) / 3 a.m. Eastern: the Disneyland Paris 25th Anniversary Grand Celebration will kick-off, with a huge cast of dancers and characters and a special Happening by Disneyland Paris cast members; and a few surprises – carried live here on the Disney Parks Blog! The above video will be live at 3 a.m. Eastern.
In addition to the morning ceremony, throughout the day, there will be lots of special activities at the park like:
- “The Grand Celebration Cavalcade” of characters and entertainment performers parading through the streets of Main Street, U.S.A.
- And, of course, all new entertainment and attractions, specially-created for the 25th anniversary celebration that premiered last month: the new daytime spectacle – Disney Stars on Parade; two new stage shows in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle – Mickey Presents “Happy Anniversary Disneyland Paris” and The Starlit Princess Waltz; a recently re-Imagined Star Tours: The Adventures Continue; and a stunning night-time finale – the all-new Disney Illuminations, night-time spectacular featuring state-of-the-art technology.
We want to say a HUGE “Joyeux Anniversaire” to all our colleagues at Disneyland Paris.
We’re proud to be a small part of the festivities – even if it is during the middle of the night here.
And stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for more from the 25th Anniversary Celebration throughout the year.
