What's going this Christmas at Disneyland Paris

This year, there will be lots of new surprises during the Disneyland Paris Christmas season, and Mickey Mouse will be right at the heart of the celebrations. That’s because we’ll be celebrating a very special anniversary, as it will mark 90 years of fun with Mickey Mouse! And he’s going to be shaking up the traditions to make sure you have a totally unexpected Christmas packed with surprises. And that’s not all! Christmas is coming early to Disneyland Paris this year, with the festive fun beginning as soon as 10 November 2018 and going on every day until 6 January 2019. So get ready to party with Mickey Mouse!

Christmas at Disneyland Park

The moment you set foot in Disneyland Park it starts to feel a lot like Christmas, with the giant Christmas tree and snow falling every day... as if by magic...

Disney’s Christmas Parade

This Christmas season you’ll be able to enjoy all the excitement of THE Disney Christmas Parade not just once but TWICE daily. It’s making a big comeback, spreading the magic of winter across Disneyland Park – and it’s even making snow fall on Main Street, U.S.A.

Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy will be leading the dance - in fact they’re already getting ready to celebrate Christmas in the best possible way, along with all their friends. Woody and Buzz Lightyear from Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story will be joining in the fun, too. Dancing gingerbread men, candy canes and all sorts of other Christmas treats will also be twirling around this magical winter wonderland. And we’ve heard that Tinkerbell and even Santa himself are going to be there!

Magic Christmas Encounters

You’ll get the chance to meet Marie from the Aristocats, Scrooge McDuck, Peter Pan and Miss Bunny, to name but a few! And it goes without saying that where there’s Christmas, there’s Santa! As you might expect, he’s decided to take up residence in Fantasyland again. To meet him, just head for “Meet Mickey Mouse”, every day up to and including the 25 December. Just like Mickey, Santa will have his own lodge where he’ll give you the warmest welcome. It’s a magical meeting you’ll treasure forever.

Light up the tree with “Mickey’s Magical Christmas Light”

There’s nothing quite like the moment the Christmas tree lights are switched on at Disneyland Park. And it’s not just any old tree – this one is 24 metres tall and will be switched on by magic at an event attended by Mickey, Minnie and Santa himself! With a festive countdown, enchanting Christmas lights, snow and Disney magic, everything is set to ensure you are immersed in the wonder of Christmas.
What’s more, it’s also a chance for us to celebrate Mickey’s anniversary, with new decorations and a new musical interlude especially for him.

A Merry Stitchmas*

Stitch is going to be taking over the Royal Castle Stage - so Christmas is sure to be a blast! He’s going to do all he can to make sure you have lots of fun with Mickey and Minnie, Donald, Daisy and Goofy, with some of our greatest Christmas classics for a backdrop.
*This show will be available from 16 November, 2018.

Don’t miss our latest attraction: “Mickey and his PhilharMagic Orchestra”*

A completely new attraction will be available in Europe for the first time ever, from 1 October, 2018. It’s called “Mickey and his PhilharMagic Orchestra”. Get ready to try a new 4D experience at Discoveryland Theater. Once you’re sitting comfortably, you’ll be able to see Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck on the big screen. They’ll take you right to the heart of some of the great Disney classics, such as Aladdin, The Little Mermaid and The Lion King - complete with some new twists caused by that mischievous Donald Duck! It’s a unique opportunity to enjoy the sound of some of Disney’s greatest melodies and celebrate 90 years of Mickey Mouse fun in the best possible way.
* “Mickey and his PhilharMagic Orchestra” will be open from 1 October, 2018 and will remain open once the Christmas season ends.

Christmas Songtime!

Do you like Christmas songs? Then come to the Videopolis Theatre in Discoveryland and check out this new show: “Christmas Songtime!”. Every day, guests will get a chance to go on stage and take part in the action, alongside Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Disney’s professional singers. What a great way to celebrate the “Disney Performing Arts” programme!
You can find further details about the “Disney Performing Arts” programme here

The Enchanted Advent Calendar: 1 - 24 December

Every morning, you’ll be able to awaken the magic of Christmas at the foot of Sleeping Beauty Castle with a larger than life advent calendar! Discover a new surprise every day, with Mickey, Minnie or Goofy.

Christmas at Walt Disney Studios Park

For the second year running, Walt Disney Studios Park is celebrating Christmas too, with even more fun for all the family!

New York-style Jazz and Mickey Mouse on the drums, with “Mickey’s Big Band Christmas”

Following its first sensational season, “Mickey’s Big Band Christmas” will be setting up at Animagique Theater at Walt Disney Studios Park. This live show is the perfect combination of traditional musical and typical Disney. A jazz band, alongside energetic tap-dance numbers… Every day this show pays lively homage to winter’s loveliest melodies, inviting you to get into the Christmas spirit with the Big Band, singers, dancers and of course Disney Characters. An absolute must-see: Mickey’s drum solo! Yes, you read it right! As for Minnie, she’s dreaming of being a jazz diva…

New show: A surprise for Mickey!

It’s time to celebrate 90 years of fun with Mickey Mouse. Will Minnie be ready on time or will she have to ask her friends - or even the audience - to help her give Mickey an unforgettable surprise?
This very special birthday surprise is going online too, because you’ll be invited to share a special message for Mickey Mouse on your social media beforehand, using the hashtag #SurpriseMickey. Your message might even appear during the show as an extra surprise for Mickey. What better way of making this a truly memorable anniversary celebration?
This interactive show will take place several times a day, at Production Courtyard, opposite the Hollywood Tower Hotel.

Goofy’s Incredible Christmas

Bring your day at Disneyland Paris to an amazing close with Goofy’s Incredible Christmas. This immersive night-time show uses mapping technology and breathtaking special effects on the walls of a fan-favorite attraction – The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™.

Mickey and Minnie Mouse, along with their friends Goofy, Donald Duck and Daisy, will be at your side throughout this fantastical journey. Carried along by the festive spirit, they’ll take you on a flight over spectacular landscapes, from the North Pole to the most amazing party you could ever imagine. Watch out for some unexpected surprises - it is Goofy we’re talking about, after all!

As well as this incredible programme, you can also meet all sorts of Disney characters at Walt Disney Studios Park, such as Goofy, in his Santa Claus outfit, Minnie Mouse or Buzz Lightyear!

Enjoy a Mickey Mouse Christmas and join him to celebrate his amazing 90th anniversary, from 10 November, 2018 to 6 January, 2019!

I'm really looking forward to the bigger version of the big band show now it's moving into the Animagique theater.

I see 'It's a small world Celebration' is not returning this year. Usually closes the first week of November for the transformation but doesn't seem to be closing at all, which is actually great because I'll be there and can't afford more rides closed, losing Phantom Manor is bad enough but can't wait for to reopen all refreshed.

I'm so glad the Studios is finally getting more Christmas decorations. Intrigued to see what the new huts will sell!

Getting excited now for my trip in December.

In response to my previous post, It’s a Small World Celebration is in fact being installed every night this week for opening on November 10th.

Christmas is shaping up to be a really great season with a good balance of entertainment between the two parks.

Shame about Cinemagique as I was really looking forward to seeing that again although it has saved me from having to make an extra trip in January!

Looks like Paris has gone all out for Christmas this year and it's making me pretty excited for my trip next month. There's so many shows to see though I'm not sure I'll have time to see everything.

Question, was Let's Sing Christmas ONLY the first weekend???
It's not on the programme for next week. It was a nice little show that should stay for the season!
