Top 10 Disneyland Paris 25th Anniversary Celebrations

Top 10 Disneyland Paris 25th Anniversary


During 2017 Disneyland Paris are celebrating 25 years of magic. The 25th anniversary has much to offer for new and regular visitors. Over Easter we had an amazing trip to see the celebrations including being at Disneyland Paris for the actual 25th anniversary on April 12th, check out my post about the grand celebration on April 12th here.

The celebrations continue throughout 2017 so here, in no particular order, are my top 10 things to enjoy during the Disneyland Paris 25th anniversary celebrations...

1. Take in the decorations.
The park is awash with blue and silver sparkle celebrating the 25th anniversary. Leading the way is Tinker Bell who sits atop the bandstand and lamp posts- remember to look up! In the Central Plaza are silver sculptures of the main characters which look stunning day and night! The colour scheme extends to the pretty flower beds and baskets around the park.

2. Character meet and greets
Popular characters such as Mickey and Minnie, Donald and Goofy are listed in the programme in their regular meet and greet spots. While there have been major changes to the line up they have donned their blue and silver 25th anniversary dress up for some great photo opportunities.

3. Illuminations.
Illuminations is the new night time show which is at park closing each evening. Scenes and songs from Disney films of every genre are included in this stunning show projected on the castle and accompanied by fountains, lasers and fireworks. This new show includes scenes from animation such as the Little Mermaid alongside live action favourites and I felt the Pirates of the Caribbean scene worked particularly well and it was hard to know where the projections ended and the water began.

4. Stars on Parade
For the 25th anniversary Disneyland Paris also has a brand new daily parade, I love how some of the floats reflect the Steampunk style of the 25th Anniversary characters, especially Mickey and co's float and the stunning dragon. I was lucky to see it on a day when it was breathing fire- impressive!

5. The Starlit Princess Waltz
I am not a huge fan of previous princess shows but this one was beautiful with fans and masks used to great effect in choreographed dances- really pretty and worth watching at dusk, the show runs during the middle of the afternoon onward at the Royal Castle Stage.

6. Mickey presents: Happy Anniversary Disneyland Paris
This is a good opportunity to see a variety of familiar characters strut their stuff on the Royal Castle Stage with Stitch, Toy Story, Winnie the Pooh, Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland characters joining Mickey for some fun.

7. The attractions
Although there is nothing new for the 25th Anniversary Big Thunder Mountain and Star Tours have been renovated and are looking great. Unmissable attractions for thrill seekers big and small! We also loved the more sedate trip aboard the paddle boat, The Molly Brown, now that the lake is filled again.

8. The food
Lots of themed 25th anniversary food can be found in the parks from cakes to burgers. There are also commemorative popcorn buckets and drinks containers too.

9. The souvenirs
I am a also a big fan of the Steampunk style of the 25th anniversary merchandise which includes pins, photo albums and autograph books as well as Minnie Mouse ears and Mickey Mouse hats. I also absolutely love the A-Z book which is a stunning book of photos and information about the 25 years of the park and comes with a copy of the ticket given on the opening day.

10. Mickey's Goodnight Kiss
A lovely end to the day after Illuminations is Mickey waving goodnight (no kisses i'm afraid!) from the Main Street Station balcony.
