Here’s a huge Disneyland Paris Christmas update for you today with photos and and videos. Special thanks to Max Fan, D&M contributor and Dlrp Welcome webmaster for helping us bring this report to you!
Starting by the park entrance we notice that Christmas decorations are in place everywhere – on the train station and Town Square on Main Street U.S.A.
The Christmas tree on Town Square is a brand new one – even higher than the previous one – and, boy this is a really big Christmas tree!
The snowman characters in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle on Central Plaza are back this year!
DLP guests can enjoy the new Christmas Cavalcade which includes a brand new “Frozen” float in this daytime parade. We have videos!
It’s a Small World Celebration has returned to Fantasyland. Here’s the video…
Jack Skellington and Sally are still doing meet and greets in Frontierland but now Jack has donned his Christmas suit!
When night falls it’s time for the Christmas tree lighting accompanied by the new “Christmas Magic Wishes”.
The Sleeping Beauty Castle Lighting Ceremony follows the Christmas tree lighting ceremony. This year there is a welcome addition with fountains show and projections on the castle. Full video below!
Your Christmas-themed evening ends with “Disney Dreams Fète Noel”, the new holiday version of Disney Dreams! The show features entirely new Christmas scenes. If you were delighted by the original Disney Dreams show, you’ll be happy to know that this Christmas version justifies a new visit to Disneyland Paris during the Christmas season.
The show opens with Olaf, the snowman from Frozen, and this sequence is dedicated to Disney’s new animated movie, soon to be released all over Europe…
…followed by a sequence in which many classic beloved Disney characters appear, from Bambi to 101 Dalmatians.
Then there is an absolutely charming tribute to the characters of It’s a Small World.
The show continues with a funny Toy Story “Nutcracker” sequence. I’m guessing that the animation in this sequence is, more or less, the same as the new DCA World of Color Christmas show.
In the next sequence, guests are invited to join in and sing Jingle Bells.
The fountains, lighting and projection effects on the castle look fantastic…
With fireworks shooting throughout the show, Disneyland Paris delivers a brand new night show which is worthy of the applause that it receives each might from guests!
Here now is the HD video of the full “Disney Dreams Fete Noel” show filmed by Fabien Marliot. Don’t forget to watch it in full screen and 1080p definition!
