Enjoy these photos of Disneyland Paris after hours for February 2019!

Pirates & Princesses: Make Your Choice Lyrics

While being a Princess or a Pirate is fun, there’s something to be said for dancing and rapping for your chosen team! Three to four times a day throughout the season, Central Plaza becomes a bustling hub of dancing, rapping, and a bit of jovial banter, as Team Pirates and Team Princesses take to the stage to showcase their inner power. We’re sure you know the dance by now, but get ready to take your performance to the next level with the lyrics of the Make Your Choice battle! Pirates & Princesses: Make Your Choice!

Review: New Disney Princesses Breakfast at Auberge de Cendrillon

With the popularity of character dining, Disney Princesses, and the Disney Princesses Character Lunch at Auberge de Cendrillon, it’s almost mind boggling that no one had thought of launching a Disney Princesses Breakfast in 26 years! Fairy Godmother wiggled her wand and voila – Disney Princesses Breakfast is now a thing at Auberge de Cendrillon, for now as a test during the Pirates and Princesses Festival (until April 1, 2019). We set our alarms and hurried down to Sleeping Beauty Castle on opening day, to find out if the Princesses really « woke up like this ». Booking, prices and access: Like a few other Character Dining experience, Disney Hotels and Partner Hotels Guests have a preferred booking window (when booking direct), in the sense that they can book this meal at the t...

Peek into the future of Disney’s Hotel New York: The Art of Marvel

Disney’s Hotel New York is a staple of Lake Disney (then Lake Buena Vista) since Disneyland Paris (then Euro Disney) opened in 1992. Designed by post modern architect Michael Graves, the hotel was to represent an idealized (albeit 90’s version) of New York City, in an early 20th art deco style. As the Resort grew older, so did its hotel, and Disneyland Paris started a long term program of renovations and light IP infusions (guess they were too « nondescript »?). That’s exactly what is happening here at Disney’s Hotel New York. While headlines were quick to annonce a ‘Marvel Hotel », the property will in fact be renovated to more modern standards and add accents from the « Art of Marvel ». Far from creating a place where super-heroes live (you were all thinking...

“Surprise Mickey”: Recipe of a Disney Parks Hit Show

Production Courtyard shows have never been life changing. So when Disneyland Paris announced that, for Mickey’s 90th Birthday, Minnie was going to host yet another “surprise”, no one expected much. But on a sunny Friday morning of November, when Minnie suddenly realized that it was Mickey’s Birthday, he was not the only one to get a wonderful gift. Spoilers ahead – and if you’d like you can watch the show first below: So why did this show resonate with Guests? Let’s look at the ingredients: Story Story always come first. As much as you’d think Disneyland Paris show producers would know this by now, Guests come to the parks to be told a story, and sadly that is not always the case with shows.Surprise Mickey’s story is simple but effective, it makes sense (albeit the Disney Magic...

Discussing Phantom Manor with Imagineer Tom Fitzgerald

Every fan is waiting for it. And while we can’t reveal the exact reopening date just yet, we’re also counting the days until Phantom Manor opens its gates to guests again in Spring 2019. In the meantime, the Disneyland Paris teams sat down with Tom Fitzgerald, Portofolio Creative Executive at Walt Disney Imagineering, who is overseeing the large refurbishment, for a quick update. Phantom Manor is a beloved attraction for many, can you tell us about what it means personally to you? As a child, Halloween was always my favorite holiday. I’d build haunted walk-throughs in the basement of my house (I had very tolerant parents) to scare friends and neighbors each year! So, you can imagine my excitement when Walt Disney announced on television plans to build “The Haunted Mansion” at Disneyland! T...

Review: Mickey 90 Mouse Party Soirée Pass Annuel

To celebrate Mickey’s 90th Anniversary, a special Annual Pass Party was held in Disneyland Park at Disneyland Paris on Thursday, 6th December, 2018. But was it a good, good, good, good time… or a bit of a deflated Pooh balloon? Read on to found out! Streetmosphere Throughout the night an eclectic mix of 80s and 90s Mickey Mouse themed numbers (many from the old Disney EuroBeat albums) were played throughout the park, along with the likes of Disney Parks classics such as Mickey Mania (hello 1995) being busted out of the archives. The lighting of the blue and silver Christmas decorations glowed a warm, and much more welcoming red and gold instead. Various Main Street USA shopfronts had also setup temporary selfie backdrops for the occasion. Cast Members lined the streets of Main ...

Millesime Montevrain: the new Val d’Europe Multi Purpose Venue

Steps away from Disneyland Paris, « Millesime Montevrain » is set to become the new independent hub for shows and entertainment in the Val d’Europe area. It sits on Avenue Francois Mitterrand right next to Disneyland Paris backstage areas, and will offer in 2019 a unique multi purpose venue, a restaurant, an exhibition space and a recording studio. We got the chance to visit the construction site. Out of the 1500 m2 of the brand new building, 400 m2 will be taken up by the entertainment venue. This modular space will be able to host from 50 to 1000 people depending on the configuration and will serve as a theater, a convention center or a meeting space.
