A SPOOKTACULAR HALLOWEEN FOR DISNEYLAND PARIS’ 15TH BIRTHDAY
From 6th October to 4th November 2007, a spooktacular Halloween season comes to Disneyland Resort Paris, offering laughs and mischief for all the family
With the help of Classic Disney Villains, Frontierland in the Disneyland Park transforms into Halloweenland. Cruella de Vil and Captain Hook will take over the park, creating a spooky setting for Halloween mischief and mayhem. There will be tricks and treats galore with the spooky season’s special guests, the high energy Pumpkin Men and Pink Witches, who are sure to entertain kids of all ages at the daily Disney Villain’s Halloween Showtime.
There are regular daily shows on the Halloween stage in front of the Sleeping Beauty Castle. Goofy and the Magic Pot is an exhilarating, energetic show where children can learn to make pumpkin soup and dance alongside Goofy himself! Minnie and the Bat Boys will also be appearing on stage daily, with live music and a host of other Disney characters singing classic Disney Villain’s songs.
Kids can join in the fun as favourite Disney monster Stitch, from the ‘Lilo and Stitch’ Disney animation film, wreaks havoc across the park and takes over the 15th Anniversary ‘Disney Once Upon a Dream Parade’.
Disneyland Resort Paris also becomes even more interactive during Halloween season. Guests will have the chance to meet dozens of Disney characters, witches, stilt walkers and other street artists. Children aged between 3 and 11 can enjoy free face painting and ‘hair-raising’ antics with Disney’s crazy coiffeurs. Several times a day the Mexican game of piñata, in Halloweenland, is a test of strength and luck as kids try to break into the colourful paper mâché objects, stuffed with all kinds of sweets, biscuits and candy.

The Halloween season takes place as part of Disneyland Resort Paris’ yearlong 15th anniversary celebration.

- Over 25 TONS of pumpkins are used during the Halloween season at Disneyland Resort Paris.
- 400 bails of straw are brought in to be used in Halloweenland, as well as 500 bails of hay.
- More than 4,500 corn on the cobs are eaten, along with 800kg of sweets.
- It takes a staggering three weeks to completely transform the park into a truly frightening, festive Halloweenland and three days alone to put up the stage where Minnie and Goofy perform!
The festive winter holiday season runs from 10th November 2007 to 6th January 2008 with spectacular Christmas decorations, a holiday on ice show and more than a million Christmas lights. Main Street is magically transformed with “snow-filled” streets, shimmering Disney Princess streetlamps and the joyful sounds of Victorian Christmas carolers, and a visit from Father Christmas himself!
Each evening, the Disneyland Park lights up with an Enchanted Fairytale Ceremony at Sleeping Beauty Castle. Disney’s Fantillusion nighttime parade, featuring state-of-the art visual and sound effects, brings the Disney Characters together in a holiday extravaganza down Main Street, U.S.A. And on New Year’s Eve Disneyland Park hosts an all-out celebration until 1 a.m., with memorable fireworks to ring in the New Year.

Looking ahead to Winter 2008, is the debut of one of the hottest Disney attractions worldwide: The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, at Walt Disney Studios Park, is inspired by The Twilight Zone®, a registered trademark of CBS, Inc. All rights reserved. Guests board a decrepit hotel freight elevator that hurtles through the “fifth dimension” in a pitch-black shaft, plummeting from
the 13th floor. Ghostly apparitions, rocketing ascents and blasts of chilling air are just a few of the surprises in store. The attraction is the centerpiece of the new Hollywood Boulevard coming to Walt Disney Studios Park.
