Five things to do for a Magical May Half-Term at Disneyland Paris

Written by Lottie

Let’s go and a meet a princess, a swashbuckling pirate and more,
You’ll be truly spoilt for choice with so much to explore!
From dazzling illuminations, parades and interactive shows too,
There is so much Disney magic just waiting for you!

Magical Meet and Greets

Dreams truly do come true! Get your best smile at the ready because you have been cordially invited to meet Belle, Aurora, Rapunzel and other Disney Princesses in real life in the fabulous Princess Pavilion. If Pirate plundering and never growing up is your thing, it’s time to perfect your limp and shake hands and hooks with the jolliest of buccaneers and some surprise scallywags – all in front of Plage de Pirates!

You can also meet and greet Moana at the Art of Animation – Toon Studios, but get there early as the queues for Moana get super busy!

Become a Pirate or Princess for the Day

Young royals in waiting can become the fairest in the land when they have their make-up perfected and hair styled just like their beloved Disney Princess. Budding buccaneers can get their face painted to look shipshape and like Jack Sparrow himself!

This takes place at the Disneyland Hotel and there are a variety of packages to choose from, with prices starting at 55 euros. The starter package must be booked in person at the ‘Galerie Mickey’ shop on the second floor of the Disneyland® Hotel, and the other packages can be booked in advance by emailing dlp.disney.special.activities@disney.com

Pirates and Princesses Parade

Until 31st May 2018

Choose your side – are you Team Princess or Team Pirate?

This interactive show involves 85 talented performers taking to the stage to bring Disney magic to life before your very eyes!  The Pirates float and Disney Princesses float set off from opposite ends of the route, before meeting halfway and immersing guests in a musical celebration. The floats will then head to Central Plaza where they’ll meet for a magical spectacle of guest interaction. With several parades taking place throughout the day, why not have the best of both worlds?

Disney Stars on Parade

March your little showstoppers to Disneyland® Paris for Disney Stars on Parade! Jump for joy as Mickey and friends glide by on fabulous floats, which includes a fire-breathing dragon that will tell Disney stories like never before. This is a daily show which takes place around 5.30pm every day and is guaranteed to bring smiles to the faces of all age groups.

The Spectacularly Sparkly Disney Illuminations Show

Gaze in awe at the majestic Sleeping Beauty Castle as Mickey leads you through a dazzling Disney illuminations extravaganza. Magnificent fireworks, incredible light projections and stunning special effects bring classic tales and new stories to life, including Star Wars, Frozen and Pirates of the Caribbean.
