Starting January 8, 2024, life will be as colourful and joyful as in a movie at Disneyland Park! Over the first few weeks of the new year, Disneyland Paris will gradually introduce a series of exciting experiences that will add colour to cloudy winter days: Disney Symphony of Colours. This programme includes a new nighttime drone sequence, a new daytime show and brand-new decorations!
AN ELECTRICAL DRONE PARADE TO LIGHT UP THE SKY
Starting January 8, 2024*, Disney Symphony of Colours will kick off with a bang for guests, with Disney Electrical Sky Parade, giving them the chance to discover a nighttime drone parade in the sky! This feat will be made possible through an exceptional new nighttime show combining synchronised drones, video projections, lights and fountains across Sleeping Beauty Castle.The sky wil be transformed into a palette of colours, thanks to the vibrant illuminations above the castle.
This novelty will pay dazzling tribute to the Main Street Electrical Parade, a nighttime spectacular that marked the history of Disneyland Paris when it was staged in Disneyland Park between 1992 and 2003. Disney Electrical Sky Parade gives nostalgic fans a chance to relive their childhood, and younger fans the opportunity to discover this iconic Disney Parks experience in a brand-new, never-seen-before format.
Up to 500 drones will parade across the night sky in the form of illuminated floats, symbolising the various icons of the Main Street Electrical Parade, including Mickey Mouse and his friends’ dazzling train, Elliott the adorable dragon and Cinderella’s carriage. The unforgettable electro-syntho-magnetic music, which has been remixed for the occasion, will once again set the tempo for this spectacular festival of nighttime magic.
* Until September 30, 2024
To develop Disney Electrical Sky Parade, the Disneyland Paris Entertainment teams have once again collaborated with Dronisos, official technology supplier of Disneyland Paris and European leader in drone shows based in France, United States and Middle East. This breathtaking new show will follow in the footsteps of recent nighttime productions such as Disney D-Light, Avengers: Power the Night or the incredible Bastille Day drone show performed on 14 July 2023.
A NEW DAYTIME SHOW CELEBRATING DISNEY ANIMATION AND PIXAR
Starting February 10, 2024*, guests will be able to enjoy a colourful, musical experience in a new, energy-packed daytime show celebrating the animated films from both Disney Animation and Pixar, with a host of characters: A Million Splashes of Colour.
This original creation, performed several times a day, will take guests on a journey through time to discover the stories of Disney Animation and Pixar – from timeless classics to the most recent hits.
The colourful floats will be inspired by art, music and writing – the core elements at the very heart of Disney Animation and Pixar’s storytelling. Each of the floats will have its own visual identity and will be packed with many Disney details and references.
For example, guests will recognise the float dedicated to art with its giant paintbrushes and oversized paint pots as well as labels that allude to Disney characters.
Music will play a central role in setting the pace for this celebration, combining two original scores and a mashup of iconic songs from both Disney Animation and Pixar films in specially adapted versions. From ‘The Bare Necessities’ (The Jungle Book) to ‘We Don’t Talk About Bruno’ (Encanto) and ‘You’ve Got a Friend in Me’ (Toy Story), this selection of songs will delight guests of all ages as it showcases songs that have touched many generations.
* Until September 30, 2024
A wealth of colours will also be expressed through the costumes and make-up of the show’s dancers. In total, 30 dancers and characters will give guests a colourful and warm welcome every day.
ENCHANTING DECORATIONS ON MAIN STREET, U.S.A.
Main Street, U.S.A., a must-see when visiting Disneyland Park, will feature new colourful decorations from February 10, 2024*.
The land will be decked out in dazzling decorations with sprinkling of colour, a twinkling of light and some flowery touches that ‘wake up winter’ thanks to Pixie Dust sprinkled by Tinkerbell and her twin sister, Perriwinkle.
Celebrating the wonders of nature in both Winter and Spring, this new decoration will draw its inspiration from Art Nouveauand celebrate the richness of Disney’s stories. Over 50 Disney Animation and Pixar characters will be featured, including Donald, Tiana (The Princess and the Frog), Elsa (Frozen) and Woody (Toy Story). The main landmarks on Main Street U.S.A., such as the Gazebo and Main Street Station, will be redecorated to celebrate Disney Symphony of Colours. These decorations, conceived by the Entertainment scenography team, are made in collaboration with French artisans combining a range of skills, including sculpture and ornament modelling.
