Disney Villains in Devilish Form to Welcome Guests
Disney Villains Maleficent, Captain Hook, the Evil Queen and more are back in action and ready to take photos with Guests in captivating and scary atmospheres in both Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park.
Many Disney Characters like Mickey, Minnie, Stitch and Goofy will also appear, dressed in their most mischievous Halloween outfits at numerous photo locations throughout the Parks. Guests can find information about their appearances on the official Disneyland Paris App. Plus, for outdoor photo locations, Guests will have even bigger smiles as they can remove their masks when at the photo location on the green circle.
Decorations, Attractions and More For a Perfect Halloween
This Halloween, Guests will find 330 pumpkins, 175 meters of strings of lights, 56 lanterns, 40 friendly ghosts and numerous skeletons – the largest of which is three meters high – decorating the Park throughout the season. Magic Shots* will also be decked out in Halloween colors with many surprises.
Disney’s Halloween Festival is the perfect opportunity to discover, or rediscover, Disneyland Paris’ most exciting attractions. Guests can venture into the spirit-filled mysterious journey of Phantom Manor, with 60 Audio-Animatronics®, 50 special effects and no less than 400 pieces of decor. There’s also the head-spinning falls of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. Did you know that its elevators do not actually dropped into emptiness but are, in fact, pulled down? This original system causes the elevator to descend faster than it would by gravity alone and allows Guests to feel like they are flying when they put their arms in the air.
The shopping experience will also take on a wicked twist. Many new items will be available in the Resort’s shops – at Thunder Mesa, Tower Hotel Gifts and World of Disney – allowing everyone to proudly wear this season’s colours. “Fabulously Villainous,” a brand-new textile and lifestyle collection designed by the Disneyland Paris teams, proudly features Disney Villains on sweaters, scarfs, umbrellas, badges and even a light-up cup.
Food and beverage offerings will also be deliciously wicked with, such as the Disney Villains Plate available in select table service restaurants. Choose a savory meat dish stuffed with pumpkin and “trompettes de la Mort” (“deadly” wild mushrooms) topped with a “sauce diable” (devil’s sauce) or Snow White’s Evil Queen menu which includes a dessert inspired by the famous poisonous apple. Snacks will also have a few tricks up their sleeves, such as spooky shortbreads with Cruella and Mickey, known as the “Sabl’Effrayant Mickey.“
Also new this year, Disney Hotels will be decked out in Fall colors to welcome Guests in a special Halloween-inspired atmosphere. Decorations, photo opportunities with Disney Characters and restaurants will extend the magic of the most wickedly fun season of the year!
