Review: Disneyland Paris Halloween Party 2018

By @EyeOnDisney The age old question that has divided Disneyland Paris fans for quite some time now is “Christmas or Halloween?”. This reviewer will try to avoid angering either camp but one of the highlights on the Disneyland Paris events calendar each year is the Halloween party that takes place annually on October 31. This year saw several changes including increased prices for guests as well as tickets being available right up to the day of the event. General improvements  were made to the logisitics of the event starting at wristband distribution. Guests had the opportunity to pick up wristbands for the event from Main Street station, ticketing or hotel reception depending on the guests’ individual situation. Even better still, guests arriving just for the party were given their...

Review: Disney Loves Jazz

Review by Patrick G. The Disney Loves Jazz soirée follows in the footsteps in a growing list of hard-ticketed events that have been held in Disneyland Paris in the past few months. The main element that made this soirée stand out more than most is that it was very clearly targeting a different type of audience, one that may not be a traditional park goer or a repeat visitor to Disneyland Paris. Once again the Walt Disney Studios Park played host to a special evening of entertainment and characters. Disney friends like Tiana, Naveen, Louis, Dr. Facilier, Roger Rabbit, Eddie Valiant, Oswald, Mickey, Minnie, the Aristocats and Edgar (a world premiere no less!) came out to play in a jazzy atmosphere which was largely a calm and relaxing affair. The soirée began at 8pm and despite the park clos...

Review: Halloween Festival 2018

Despite all the fun things the 25th Anniversary brought us, its fair to say that it “killed” Halloween last year.

Disneyland Paris Magic Run Weekend 2018 Review

Now that my legs have finally recovered, let’s take a look back at the 3rd annual Disneyland Paris Magic Run Weekend which took place this past weekend (21st-23rd September). The event marked some firsts, and some changes, over previous years – but did it all work out? Read on to find out! As a bit of background, I took part in the 36km Challenge this year and also ran the Biddi-Boddi-Boo Challenge last year, I didn’t take part in the Inaugural event so most of my comparisons will be drawn between the 2017 and 2018 events. Bib Collection & the Health & Wellness Expo It’s almost tradition now that some sort of problem prevents the Health & Wellness Expo from opening on time, this year was no exception to that rule. However, once the Expo was open the process of bib collection wa...
