Symphony of Colours, “Dream your life in colour, it’s the secret of happiness”.
This cult quote from Peter Pan (1953) will be more meaningful than ever from 8 January 2024 at Disneyland Park. Visitors will be able to start the year in the best possible way with Disney’s Symphony of Colours, a series of new attractions that will be launched progressively over the weeks, adding a healthy dose of colour to the winter doldrums at the beginning of the year.

Symphony of Colours, a parade of electric drones to light up the sky
From 8 January 2024, Disney Symphony of Colours will kick off with a bang for guests, with Disney Electrical Sky Parade, allowing them to experience a night-time parade of drones in the sky! This feat will be made possible by an exceptional new night-time show combining synchronised drones, video projections, lights and fountains across Sleeping Beauty Castle. The sky will be transformed into a palette of colours, thanks to the vibrant illuminations above the castle.
This new event will be a vibrant tribute to the Main Street Electrical Parade***, the night-time experience that marked the history of Disneyland Paris when it was performed at Disneyland Park from 1992 to 2003. It’s a chance for nostalgic fans to relive their childhood, and for younger visitors to discover this icon of the Disney Parks in a brand new version.
Up to 500 drones will take to the skies in the guise of illuminated floats, symbolising the various icons of the Main Street Electrical Parade***: Mickey and his friends’ dazzling train, Elliott the adorable dragon and Cinderella’s carriage. The unmissable electro-synthetic-magnetic music, played in a revisited version, will once again set the tempo for this extraordinary festival of nocturnal magic and enchantment.
To create “Disney Electrical Sky Parade “, the Disneyland Paris show teams have once again collaborated with Dronisos, the official technology supplier to Disneyland Paris and a pioneer and European leader in drone shows based in France, the United States and the Middle East. This breathtaking new show will follow in the footsteps of recent night-time productions such as Disney D-Light, Avengers: Power the Night* and the impressive drone show performed on 14 July 2023.

Art, music and writing
