Christmas 2017: A Christmas with extra sparkle

Christmas 2017 at Disneyland Paris is lining up to the extremely special, after the smaller Halloween celebrations questions were being raised about how Disneyland Paris would be treating Christmas especially with the 25th anniversary running at the same time. We did not need to be worried, Christmas 2017 at Disneyland Paris is shaping up to be the best yet!

A Christmas in two parks!

The biggest news is that finally the Walt Disney Studios Park is joining in on the Christmas fun! Goofy will be taking control of the Christmas celebrations in Goofy’s Incredible Christmas which will be an evening projection show on The Twilight Zone: Tower of Terror. The show is looking set to include a range of Christmas themes with some Goofy touches. As Disney Dreams! of Christmas will not be returning this year, this will be your evening fix of festive magic. It’s also looking very probable that you will be able to see both this new Christmas show and Disney Illuminations in the same evening!

There will also be a brand new show coming to the Walt Disney Studios Park called Sing me a Merry Christmas! which will performed multiple times a day and will feature a Christmas sing-a-long featuring many of your favourite Disney Characters. This show sounds like it’ll be very exciting and hopefully full of festive cheer. The Walt Disney Studios park has always been following far behind Disneyland Park when it comes to seasonal celebrations and so it is very pleasing to finally see it come to life.

Finally, Disney Characters will be wearing festive outfits to celebrate the season including Goofy in his Santa costume!

Disneyland Park hosts a sparkling Christmas

Unlike Halloween where the season was essentially banished from Main Street USA, Christmas will once again fill the entire park and will blend the Christmas that we have come to know and love with some brand new elements that will add that 25th anniversary sparkle to the celebrations.The Disney Christmas Parade is back and will be performing twice per day and will feature all your favourite floats from the previous years and the snow on Main Street USA. Mickey’s Magical Christmas Lights are also back and will see the large Christmas tree be illuminated in song and Disney magic, this is a truly wonderful show that fills guests with the festive spirit. One watch of thing and you’ll know: it’s Christmas. Also back is the ever-fun Frozen sing-a-longthe show is a good laugh the doesn’t take itself too seriously. It certainly is worth seeing on any Disneyland Paris trip.

New additions to the Disneyland Paris Christmas are more exciting than ever. The Castle Stage will be taken over by Stitch for the “A Merry Stitchmas” show. Mickey and the gang will be teaching Stitch the meaning of Christmas in a show of song and dance. This really does sound like it  will be a lot of fun and could encapsulate the meaning of Christmas. The wonderful thing about Happy Anniversary Disneyland Paris has been the number of characters on stage at once, hopefully this new show will see as many characters on stage to delight guests. Another new show is Mickey’s Christmas Big Band, this show sounds very much like the previous big band show in Videopolis but with more in the way of characters. If this show is anything like the previous show then we are in for a treat!

One of the more intriguing events that will be taking place this Christmas is the Enchanted Advent Calendar, this unique event will take place between the 1-25 of December at the foot of Sleeping Beauty Castle. There is very little information on this show that has been released by Disneyland Paris but it sounds very intriguing and if it turns out to be different every day, then it could be one of the most exciting elements of the 2017 Disneyland Paris Christmas.

And of course, the Disney Characters will be there to celebrate the festive season including Marie, Scrooge McDuck, Thumper and Miss Bunny. Additionally Santa Claus will be meeting in Meet Mickey up to and including 25th December. Finally, Miguel from the new Pixar film Coco will be at the Fuente del Oro.

A wonderfully enchanted Christmas 2017

Christmas 2017 at Disneyland Paris will be more magical than ever and is potentially one of the most exciting seasons we have had at Disneyland Paris in recent years. Each Christmas feels as if the park undergoes a transformation and becomes a new park, this year that feeling will be intensified. It’s equally pleasing to see the Walt Disney Studios park joining in the season, there has never been any reason why the seasons couldn’t extend outside of the Disneyland Park, and this is hopefully just the start of a wonderful expansion and a new era of entertainment at Disneyland Paris!
