Against all early expectations, the resort originally known as EuroDisney is turning a quarter-century old, and the Disneyland Paris 25th anniversary celebration will officially start on March 26, 2017 with new and refurbished attractions throughout the park.
Beginning March 26th 2017, guests at Paris’s Disneyland Park will experience Star Tours: The Adventures Continue. The new attraction will take Guests on an all-new, action-packed intergalactic voyage, all in 3D. Based on the Star WarsTM films, Star Tours will take Guests to multiple Star Wars destinations where they will interact with characters from throughout the Saga. Every destination will offer unique surprises with journeys through the worlds of Jakku, Hoth, Tatooine, the Death Star and more. Guests will be able to enjoy the attraction multiple times without knowing where the Force may take them. And all of the storyline’s twists and turns will be random, affording Guests the chance to ride the attraction multiple times.
Guests will also be able to join the Rebel Alliance by becoming the drivers of Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain, which will temporarily take over the Space Mountain roller-coaster. This attraction, which hurtles through the Star Wars galaxy following the twists and turns of TIE fighters and an intimidating Star Destroyer, should be similar to the overlay of the same name at Disneyland in California, with the addition of upside-down loops.
Also arriving in 2017, Disneyland Park’s new Parade Disney Stars on Parade, where favourite Disney Stars, together with new floats, create magic and happiness for all. Guests will also be able to discover a new show Mickey presents Happy Anniversary Disneyland Paris at Disneyland Park where Mickey Mouse will start the celebration by assembling as many of his famous Friends as possible for a huge anniversary party. This festive show will take place daily. In addition, fans of the Disney Princesses will be able to witness as they host their own sparkling show The Starlit Princess Waltz at Royal Castle Stage (Disneyland Park).
Finally, as night falls, there will be another new event: Disney Illuminations. This new show, with lights, projections and special effects, will be conducted by Mickey Mouse onto Sleeping Beauty Castle (Disneyland Park). It will transport Guests to a location where the stories of Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Frozen, Beauty and the Beast, Star Wars and Pirates of the Caribbean will come to life.
In addition to the above additions, many attractions and amenities — from the Peter Pan’s Flight ride to the Newport Bay Club hotel — have recently been renovated in time for the anniversary.
