In Video. La Parade de NoÃ«l 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.,
Whilst the large lighting rigs along the parade route illumated the procession, several extra lights were added to the classic floats to light up the characters and their decor. Previously, a nighttime version of The Christmas Parade such as this could only be seen on New Year’s Eve, when entertainment times were shifted to compensate for the park’s late 1am closure.

The Christmas Parade enjoyed its final performance of the 2006/07 season earlier today, and it remains to be seen whether it will return again in November. With Disney’s Once Upon a Dream Parade scheduled to run the entire year, either a hushed Christmas makeover will take place, The Christmas Parade will return, or there will be no main Christmas parade.
Whatever happens, enjoy the nighttime Christmas Parade, truly at its best, with two special guests…
