Woody’s Roundup right here, today!

Father Christmas Village officially confirmed

ImageYou’ve no doubt seen the construction for ‘Woody’s Roundup Village‘ in Frontierland, read the rumours of a rustic reindeer ranch theme for Christmas and noticed that Goofy will be taking over Father Christmas’ Town Square spot this year… but no official word on the project has yet been given, until today.

Bougillumination Enchantée and Dreams of Christmas

Luckily for you, we’ve translated it…

Halloween festival launches to the power of 15

The launch also includes the new festival logo and some photos to advertise the Disney Villains’ Halloween Showtime

‘Spooktacular’ Halloween for the 25th Anniversary

ImageA new press release has just been published confirming the main events for the 2007 Disney’s Halloween Festival. As expected, it’s a Halloween with a twist - the Pumpkinmen, Pink Witches, Stitch and the Disney Villains all return, but they’re going to be vying for attention against the regular 15th events, apparently continuing as normal. So no Maleficent dancing to “Tous en train!” then, sorry.

Bastille Day goes with a bang, without blunder

ImageIn pictures and video. If there’s one thing Disneyland can do well (when they’ve permission, at least), it’s big fireworks. Unfortunately, guests at the Bastille Day events of 2006 might not have been too sure, watching in confusion as none of the large shells burst into the sky as they should have done. For this 25th Anniversary year, though, luck hasn’t strayed from the side of the resort for one moment…

Disney Village to host European Festival of Martial Arts 2008

ImageThose rumours (or rather aspirations) that the Formula-1 French Grand Prix could be heading to Disneyland Resort Paris continue to simmer away, but another (albeit less major) sporting event has been confirmed for the 2008 season. Long after the 25th Anniversary Celebration rolls up its red carpet, Disney Village is scheduled to host a new European Festival of Martial Arts - with streetmosphere and special events for regular guests.

Remember… Christmas Past?

With the lights fading on the park’s fifteenth Christmas season, it seems a good time to step back in time and remember what happened on Christmases past. The Lights of Winter, Mickey’s Nutcracker Parade, Sparkling Christmas Fireworks… do you remember them all?

The Nighttime Christmas Parade - with special guests

In Video. La Parade de Noël became La Parade de la Nuit for the final two weeks of Disney’s Christmas Season, thanks to the extended opening hours of Disneyland Park and the shortened hours of daylight. For the very first parade of 2007, the park marked the occasion with two special guests next to Father Christmas - the 2007 ambassadors of Disneyland Resort Paris.

New Year’s Eve 2006/07

New Year’s Eve - the busiest day of the year at Disneyland Park, but the resort wasn’t given any favours when it came to the weather. As heavy showers and strong winds battered the park, the clock ticked down to midnight. Long queues, wet weather and a trimmed down fireworks show… could the magic break through to give a satisfactory soirée? With video.
