Several times a day the Disney Villains will come to the Royal Castle Stage and interrupt Mickey’s big 90th birthday skelebration. This is the perfect occasion to see the Disney Villains all together on stage along with Donald who tries to join in his Maleficent costume, and who knows… maybe after the show, you might just get the chance to meet them!

What to expect

This year the Disneyland Paris Halloween Party will include two exclusive dance parties, an exclusive Big Hero 6 show in Videopolis Theatre and a new scary zone on Adventure Isle (this zone is not recommended for young children).

Top Tips for a Great Night

Make sure to collect your bracelet early. This means that you don’t have to fight for one later in the day. Bracelet collection begins during Extra Magic TIme and just cuts down on queuing later in the day.


Try not to attend with too many expectations or too much of a plan. Whilst a good plan means you might get to enjoy your favourite meet and greet, just taking in all the atmosphere and shows will also offer an unforgettable night – after all, not all events make it to the programme!


This is a great opportunity to get an on-ride photo in costume, ride wait times are typically short as many prefer to do the shows and parades.


Try to relax a bit during the day, the Halloween party is a late night so a mid-afternoon nap might be a welcome break.


Eat during Disney Illuminations, there will likely be an hour and a half gap between the end of Illuminations and the party beginning. During this time the restaurants are extremely busy. You can skip the food queues and get to the front to the lines for the meets in this time.
