After waiting for several months, it’s finally time for Disney Villains to come out of the shadows and take part in the 30th Anniversary celebration of Disneyland Paris — and they have never been so devilishly playful! With its spellbinding encounters, mischievous atmosphere and terrifyingly-fun shows and attractions, this celebration will be frightfully entertaining! And this year, two Disney Halloween Parties will cast their spell on Disneyland Park on 29 October and 31 October 2022, until 2 a.m.!
Guests are in for a spooktacular Halloween atmosphere
BOO! From the moment they enter, guests will be surrounded by the familiar and immersive Halloween décor, including 50 new smiling pumpkins designed especially for the occasion, lanterns, friendly spooks, and joyful skeletons that are up to three metres high! And Castle Stage has been completely repainted and decorated with 500 metres of floral garlands.
For the very first time, guests will be able to enjoy the atmosphere in all Disney Hotels, as they have also been given a Halloween touch for the occasion with garlands and other autumn lanterns, and even giant pumpkins (up to 3.2 metres high) at some hotels.
And adding to the scary fun, Disneyland Park will be packed with Disney Villains (including Maleficent, Captain Hook, the Queen of Hearts, Jafar, etc.). Trick or treat?! Disney Villains always have more than one prank to pull on guests… who dare to meet them! Plus, it just so happens that this year, the Royal Castle Stage will become the Disney Villains’ regular haunt. They will use this location to put themselves in the limelight for better… or for laughs! After making a noticeable appearance on stage, they will meet and interact with guests!
And perhaps bump into Donald in his new wicked costume, at weekends and on school holidays!

New! This year, Disney Villains have one last mesmerising surprise in store for guests: Nightfall with Disney Villains, which will take place before the Disney D-Light drone show (recently voted “Best Live Show 2022”) and Disney Illuminations. Their devious plan will consist of coming out of the shadows and temporarily take over Sleeping Beauty Castle, for a special moment.
