Mickey Star winners chosen for opening ceremony

Sunday, 22nd March 2009 at 20:11

Mickey Star"You've been chosen to dance with Mickey at Disneyland Paris!" Four lucky children were chosen as winners of the Mickey Star competition this week, earning the chance to open the year-long celebration.,

The Mickey Star TV advertising campaign we featured back in February has reached its penultimate stage just a week before the main event, as the host of this series of special commercials arrived on the doorsteps of four children to tell them they’d been chosen to dance on-stage with Mickey Mouse at Disneyland.

Playing off the continuing success of the many television talent shows, Mickey Star invited children to audition for a part in the opening ceremony of Mickey’s Magical Party. And, as if by magic, these children were even lucky enough to have a film crew already inside their house, before they were told…

These four new stars will be joining the Mouse himself on the new Central Plaza Stage on Saturday 28th March during a special press-only event after regular park closure. They’ll have their moment in the spotlight captured on camera, and it’ll form the basis of an extended advert for the events on French channel TF1 just a day later, 29th March 2009.

  • @Soap: Oh dear, obviously just got caught up in the excitement of it all! The final girl has the best reaction, too.

  • i really want to win this these children are so lucky

  • I don’t think they are as lucky tbh. =/ Obviously they get to dance with mickey for the opening ceremony, but thats just one time, and these kids are about 6 so they probably won’t remember by the time they’re 40! Our performing arts group (RTSA, in the UK) will be performing on that stage =D 3rd of october, or 4th, not sure, but we are! Woop!
