The holiday season is in full force at Disneyland Paris, with special holiday entertainment throughout both parks. Disney’s Christmas Parade at Disneyland Park features familiar characters, dancing sugar canes and gingerbread men, and so much more! Ending with the always-magical snowfall on Main Street U.S.A., this parade will put you in the Yuletide spirit.

You can also find a brand-new show, “A Merry Stitchmas” on the Royal Castle Stage, led by that ever-mischievous alien Stitch. In addition, meet and greets are taking place throughout the park with Marie, Scrooge McDuck, Thumper, Miss Bunny, and Santa Claus.

Furthermore, at Walt Disney Studios Park you’ll find two new holiday shows. The stage show “Sing Me a Merry Christmas” gives you a chance to sing along with Mickey and friends to your favorite Christmas songs. At night, gaze in awe at “Goofy’s Incredible Christmas,” a nighttime extravaganza featuring all-new mapping technology and special effects displayed on The Hollywood Tower Hotel. If you’ve ever needed a reason for international travel, Christmas at Disneyland Paris seems like a good one!

First, Disneyland Paris announced that Summer 2018 will be the Marvel Summer of Super Heroes. At Walt Disney Studios Park you’ll be able to meet Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Spider-Man, Star-Lord, and Black Widow. Furthermore, new shows are being developed just for this event. The content of these shows is still unknown.

Additionally, construction will be starting in October 2018 that will transform Disney’s Hotel New York. The hotel will become Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel. Guests will be transported to the action-packed, inspiring world of Super Heroes here. It is reopening in 2020.

Disneyland Paris celebrated their 25th anniversary on April 12 this year, and the festivities are continuing through Summer 2018. (I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews about everything they’ve done thus far.) The Marvel Summer of Super Heroes is being touted as THE big event of 2018. It will also be the last event of the 25th anniversary celebration.

Daisy Lauren’s Best Week Ever: May 7, 2015

by on May 7, 2015

1Hi, Everyone! Welcome to the Best Week Ever here at Hong Kong Disneyland??! Now, before you get too jealous remember that I was in Tokyo just two weeks ago. With upwards of a twelve hour time difference I don’t recommend timing these trips like I did! The jet lag has been brutal. However, when I found out business was taking me to Hong Kong then how could I resist? I had to visit my last Disney park and share it with all of you! 🙂

With just a couple weeks to plan I made my reservation and purchased tickets. Before I knew it I was walking down Main Street! It seemed oddly smaller than the other parks and lots of renovation was going on. You’ll notice I didn’t include any closer photos of the castle because it was behind tarps! What a bummer! 🙁
