Disneyland Paris 2018: The year that changed everything

2018

The year everything changed

2018 has been a mammoth year for Disneyland Paris. We’ve had a €2 billion expansion of the Walt Disney Studios Park announced, the inaugural Marvel Summer of Super Heroes season and the unexpected success of the Festival of Pirates and Princesses. Let’s take a look back at the year in the 2018 DLP Town Square year in review. 

January 2018

The Force returned in the second edition of Star Wars: Season of the Force. This year saw the addition of new characters including Rey, it also saw the addition of an all-new celebration of the vehicles of Star Wars in a large exhibition that took place throughout the Walt Disney Studios Park. 

February 2018

Snow filled the resort for much of February 2018, but as the resort transformed into a Winter Wonderland, a bigger transformation was being announced. The €2 billion Walt Disney Studios expansion project was announced by Bob Iger and, French President, Emmanuel Macron at the Elysée Palace. The expansion will see Paris’ second gate double in size with attractions based on Star Wars, Frozen and Marvel. 

March 2018

The first ever Annual Pass party took place in the Walt Disney Studios Park; the event, exclusive to the Infinity Annual Pass, was entered around the 10th anniversary of The Twilight Zone: Tower of Terror. 

Disneyland Paris also celebrated International Women’s Day with special events scattered throughout the park. 

Festival of Pirates and Princesses
The Festival of Pirates and Princesses exploded with colour during the Spring of 2018. With its iconic dance routines, the festival very quickly became a fan favourite - so much so that guests are once again invited to choose their sides from January to March 2019.

April 2018

The Festival of Pirates and Princesses was taking the Disneyland Paris world by storm. But also enjoyed during this month was an all-new pre-show to Disney Illuminations inspired by the Disney Nature film: Blue, this pre-show was performed before Illuminations each night throughout the month. 

May 2018

The new InsidEars platform was launched to Disneyland Paris influencers during a special event entitled ‘InsidEars Ready! 2018’. Throughout the night a number of announcements were made including the arrival of Mickey’s Philharmagic and the vital refurbishment of Ratatouille: l’aventure totalement toquée de Rémy (later cancelled). 

Disney FanDaze
The party of the year was the Disney FanDaze Inaugural Party. Everything was curated especially for the fans including Imagineering panels, shows with long-lost friends, and exclusive meet and greet with extremely rare characters.

June 2018

June was perhaps the most exciting month of 2018 for in-park events. Disneyland Paris launched the Marvel Summer of Super Heroes to the press, and to guests. 

The Disney FanDaze inaugural party also took place in June and was live-streamed across the world. 

Marvel Summer of Super Heroes
Swinging into Disneyland Paris in the Summer of 2018 was the Marvel Summer of Super Heroes. This 3 month event allowed guests to salute Captain America, dance with Star Lord and eat some extra special snacks.

July 2018

Another busy summer month for Disneyland Paris as the resort hosts Electroland, the Ant-Man and the Wasp premiere, the second Annual Pass party entered around the Marvel Universe (or, that was the intention…). 

The ever-popular food festival, the Rendez-Vous Gourmand made its return to the resort in a new expanded form with foods and drinks from across Europe. 

August 2018

The long Summer season continued, August saw for the second annual Disney PhotoPass day. PhotoPass Day is a day that now features more PhotoPass photographers across the park, many of whom are accompanied by special rare characters. 

September 2018

The 25th anniversary came to an end with a spectacular Annual Pass party held in the Walt Disney Studios Park. The resort also hosted special guided tours that highlighted the resort’s heritage in the Journées de Patrimoine. 

Later in the month the Disneyland Paris Magic Run Weekend returned with 3 special races themed around the Disney Villains. To round out the month, the very first Disney Loves Jazz party took place in the Walt Disney Studios Park, the night featured a spectacular concert with big name Jazz stars. 

Halloween
Halloween 2018 took things up a notch with it's Country-Rock anthem 'Great Big Year'. The focus on the season was a super-sized stage show that celebrated Mickey's 90th birthday, the season and Phantom Manor.

October 2018

October 1st 2018 was a big day in Disneyland Paris: Halloween started, but so did the Mickey 90 festivities and Mickey’s Philharmagic. 

Philharmagic replaced the former Star Wars: Path of the Jedi (and previously, Captain EO) in the Discoveryland Theatre and has been a moderate hit with guests. 

The giant cupcakes came to life with the Cupcake Sisters, one for each land for Mickey Mouse’s 90th birthday.

The World's Biggest Mouse Party
Mickey and Minnie turned 90 during November 2018, and that needs a party! Disneyland Paris's Mouse Party did misfire in a few places, but the 'Surprise Mickey' stage show was one of the most delightful pieces of entertainment we've seen in years.

November 2018

The Mickey 90 festivities ramped up in November with exclusive merchandise making an appearance. The day itself (November 18th) was marked by a number of special items on the shelves, but no festivities in the park (or button badge). 

Christmas 2018 was launched to much fanfare, this year the season is boosted with more magic in shows like Mickey’s Christmas Big Band and Goofy’s Incredible Christmas. 

Christmas
Christmas is always a special time of year in the resort - no other park manages to do it quite as well as Disneyland Paris - and this year was no exception! With special touches for Mickey's 90th all around, this was the biggest, and merriest, Christmas celebration ever!

December 2018

The new Disneyland Paris TV spot was launched on Christmas Day on TV sets across Europe – and the world’s hearts melted as we fell in love with a duckling meeting his hero in Disneyland Paris. 

The Mickey 90 Annual Pass event also took place with special shows and character meet and greet opportunities. 

2018 was a for Disneyland Paris

2018 was the year of the hard ticket event at Disneyland Paris. But that’s not to say that those who didn’t book tickets to these festivities were not entertained, there was a boosted entertainment presence across the resort – something we’ve been needing for years. The 25th Anniversary has now been and gone, in its place are new original shows and experiences and the park is very much all the better for them. 

For attraction fans, our prayers have indeed been answered with a large investment which will fix the Walt Disney Studios Park, whilst we may need to have a lot of patience yet, it is coming and it is promising to be spectacular!
