Disneyland Paris to Celebrate 20th Anniversary with Revamped Parade and New Water Show
This year, Disneyland Paris will be celebrating its 20th anniversary, and some exciting new shows will arrive at the park as part of the celebration. The two nighttime shows, Disney Dreams and Disney Magic on Parade, will debut in April as the park marks its 20th year of operation.
“Disney Dreams” will combine elements from Walt Disney World and Disneyland’s “The Magic, The Memories, and You” show, as well as Disney California Adventure’s nighttime spectacular “World of Color.” The show, which will follow the adventures of Peter Pan’s shadow as it interacts with over a dozen classic Disney and Pixar films, will feature castle projections, water screens, dancing fountains, pyrotechnic displays, and laser effects. 30-foot tall water screens installed in the moats in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle will play Disney animated scenes set to an original score, while video projections will play on the castle itself. Some of the classic stories that guests can expect to see in the new show include Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Lion King, Toy Story, Lilo & Stitch, Finding Nemo, Wall-E, The Princess and the Frog, Tron, and Tangled.
The current Disneyland Paris daytime parade, “Once Upon a Dream,” will be revamped to become the nighttime parade “Disney Magic on Parade.” The parade will feature all-new music, costumes, and choreography, as well as new first and last floats. Beginning the parade will be two carriages carrying Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella, along with their princes. The grand finale float will feature Mickey Mouse and other Disney characters in Sorcerer’s Apprentice-inspired costumes.
