“I declare our 25th Anniversary festivities officially open”. This weekend, Catherine Powell, Présidente of Disneyland Paris, launched the Disneyland Paris 25th Anniversary celebrations in front of thousands of guests gathered in front of the Sleeping Beauty Castle in the Disneyland Park. The guests could also enjoy new shows, including the new Disney Stars on Parade and the Disney Illuminations night-time spectacular.
These festivities are the culmination of daily preparatory work by Disneyland Paris Cast Members over the course of several months. Disneyland Paris’ 25th Anniversary celebrations have, in particular, served as an opportunity for a series of large-scale attraction and hotel renovations. La Cabane des Robinson, Big Thunder Mountain, Peter Pan’s Flight and also Disney’s Hotel Newport Bay Club have been refurbished.
Disneyland Paris will celebrate its 25th Anniversary on 12 April 2017.
