What’s on at Enchanted Christmas Season at Disneyland Paris
Christmas at Disneyland Park
The moment you set foot in Disneyland Park it starts to feel a lot like Christmas, with the giant Christmas tree and snow falling every day… as if by magic…
Disney’s Christmas Parade
This Christmas season you’ll be able to enjoy all the excitement of the Disney Christmas Parade not just once but twice daily. It’s making a big comeback, spreading the magic of winter across Disneyland Park – and it’s even making snow fall on Main Street, U.S.A. Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy will be leading the dance – in fact they’re already getting ready to celebrate Christmas in the best possible way, along with all their friends. Woody and Buzz Lightyear from Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story will be joining in the fun, too. Dancing gingerbread men, candy canes and all sorts of other Christmas treats will also be twirling around this magical winter wonderland, plus we’ve heard that Tinkerbell and even Santa himself are going to be there!
Magic Christmas Encounters
Guests will get the chance to meet Marie from the Aristocats, Scrooge McDuck, Peter Pan and Miss Bunny, to name but a few. It goes without saying that where there’s Christmas, there’s Santa and he’s decided to take up residence in Fantasyland again. To meet him, just head for “Meet Mickey Mouse”, every day up to and including the 25 December. Just like Mickey, Santa will have his own lodge where he’ll give you the warmest welcome. It’s a magical meeting you’ll treasure forever.
Light up the tree with “Mickey’s Magical Christmas Light”
There’s nothing quite like the moment the Christmas tree lights are switched on at Disneyland Park. And it’s not just any old tree – this one is 24 metres tall and will be switched on by magic at an event attended by Mickey, Minnie and Santa himself! With a festive countdown, enchanting Christmas lights, snow and Disney magic, everything is set to ensure you are immersed in the wonder of Christmas. What’s more, it’s also a chance for us to celebrate Mickey’s anniversary, with new decorations and a new musical interlude especially for him.
A Merry Stitchmas
From 16 November, Stitch is going to be taking over the Royal Castle Stage – so Christmas is sure to be a blast! He’s going to do all he can to make sure you have lots of fun with Mickey and Minnie, Donald, Daisy and Goofy, with some of our greatest Christmas classics for a backdrop.
New York-style Jazz and Mickey Mouse on the drums, with “Mickey’s Big Band Christmas”
Following its first sensational season, “Mickey’s Big Band Christmas” will be setting up at Animagique Theatre at Walt Disney Studios Park. This live show is the perfect combination of a traditional musical and typical Disney. A jazz band, alongside energetic tap-dance numbers… Every day this show pays lively homage to winter’s loveliest melodies, inviting you to get into the Christmas spirit with the Big Band, singers, dancers and of course Disney Characters. An absolute must-see: Mickey’s drum solo! Whilst Minnie is dreaming of being a jazz diva…
New show: A surprise for Mickey!
It’s time to celebrate 90 years of fun with Mickey Mouse with an interactive show taking place several times a day. Will Minnie be ready on time or will she have to ask her friends – or even the audience – to help her give Mickey an unforgettable surprise? This very special birthday surprise is going online too, because guests will be invited to share a special message for Mickey Mouse on their social media beforehand, using the hashtag #SurpriseMickey. Their message might even appear during the show as an extra surprise for Mickey. What better way of making this a truly memorable anniversary celebration?
Goofy’s Incredible Christmas
Bring your day at Disneyland Paris to an amazing close with Goofy’s Incredible Christmas. This immersive night-time show uses mapping technology and breath-taking special effects on the walls of a fan-favourite attraction – The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™. Mickey and Minnie Mouse, along with their friends Goofy, Donald Duck and Daisy, will be at your side throughout this fantastical journey. Carried along by the festive spirit, they’ll take you on a flight over spectacular landscapes, from the North Pole to the most amazing party you could ever imagine. Watch out for some unexpected surprises – it is Goofy we’re talking about, after all! As well as this incredible programme, you can also meet all sorts of Disney characters at Walt Disney Studios Park, such as Goofy, in his Santa Claus outfit, Minnie Mouse or Buzz Lightyear.
