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.
