A Dazzling Christmas, and an Unparalleled Atmosphere!

As soon as they enter Disneyland Park, Guests will be entranced by the majestic glittering tree that stands 24 meters high! With Christmas music, garlands and snowflakes flying in the air… an enchanting atmosphere will envelop the area surrounding Main Street, U.S.A. And at nightfall, there will be even more magic in the air at Disneyland Park… 

Christmas Tree Lightning

This year, in addition to the Disney D-Light drone display which was designed for the 30th Anniversary celebration, lighting up the Disneyland Paris’ sky every night, Guests will enjoy the comeback of “Disney Dreams®! of Christmas”. This famous nighttime spectacular – which has dazzled a generation of Guests – will return more beautiful than ever as part of the 30th Anniversary celebration!  

Disney Dreams of Christmas

This magical show combines fireworks, dancing fountains and Christmas songs, along with projections of scenes immersing Guests into the worlds of Disney classics, such as Frozen and Pixar movies, such as Toy Story! The show will be even more dazzling and elevated for this special year, as a touch of innovation has been added to it! Sleeping Beauty Castle’s rooftops will be even more sparkling thanks to a brand-new LED* technology that makes it possible to create effects that have never been seen before in a Disney Park and that are synchronized with the show! 

Mickeys Dazzling Christmas Parade 3

The highly anticipated “Mickey’s Dazzling Christmas Parade” will also return. This parade – which first debuted in 2021 – aims to deliver two unique experiences to Guests. It notably features five colorful and illuminated floats that will celebrate the magic of winter, both during the day and at night! The unique theme of each float will immerse Guests in the magical world of Christmas. These floats will be synchronized with music and will feature Mickey and his friends, along with Disney Princesses and Santa Claus. The performers’ shiny costumes – which have been specially designed for the occasion – will make it possible to create sparkling effects on Main Street U.S.A.
