Sing along to “Magic Everywhere!” – Disneyland Paris’ new 20th Anniversary parade anthem

Saturday, 18th February 2012 at 18:07

That awkward moment when… your shareholders’ Annual General Meeting is interrupted by a gang of 14 Disney characters and 10 dancers, jumping along to the latest high-energy parade number. Well, it has almost become an annual tradition! And so it was the shareholders, attending Friday’s meeting at the Disney’s Newport Bay Club Convention Centre, who got the very first listen to “Magic Everywhere!” — the new theme song for Disney Magic on Parade! and the 20th Anniversary as a whole.

Beginning “Yeah yeah yeah, celebrate the magic!”, the song, produced by Disneyland Paris music impresario Vasile Sirli, combines all the essential elements of a perfect Disney parade anthem. Rhyming couplets, references to storybooks, twinkly “pixie dust” sounds, it’s all there. The song also makes specific reference to “celebrating 20 years of joy and laughter”. Luckily for those unable to attend the meeting, the first play was captured on video (embedded below). What are your first impressions?

Accompanying the song, the small show also gave the audience a first look at the new “sorcerer”-themed costumes for Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Chip, Dale, Goofy and Pluto, as well as the new Blue Fairy who will help open the refreshed parade.

Video featuring “Magic Everywhere!” and full lyrics follow…

Magic Everywhere!

Yeah yeah yeah
Celebrate the magic
Yeah yeah yeah
Celebrate the magic
Magic! Magic!
Magic everywhere !

Come step inside this storybook
You’ll be amazed each time you look
And marvel at the magic all around you

As pixie dust falls from a star
It touches you and here you are
One wish away from all you’ve dreamed

This world of wonders
A place like no other on earth


Magic Everywhere !
All that you imagine
Celebrate the pageant
Before your eyes !

In a world of light
We all come together
Neverland’s for ever
For all our lives

Celebrating 20 years of joy and laughter
Memories you’ll keep long after
Sharing all the magic everywhere
Friends come from
Every corner of the world
To feel the magic
That is real

Celebrating 20 years of joy and laughter
memories you’ll keep long after
Disneylands’s the place where
Joy lights up each face there
Wheter the young and young at heart
Share dreams of a lifetime
Finding right from the start
Magic Everywhere (Celebrate ! celebrate ! celebrate !)

  • the costumes are beautiful and the song is amazing. They’ve done an amazing job, just cant wait to see the fireworks!

  • SOUNDS GREAT! the costumes look so fun and well thought out! love that the Blue fairy is back!
    this will be a great year for DLP, keep it up =]

  • Looks and sounds fantastic. I wish I could go and see it lol!!

  • I love the song. Really excited about the parade now but is this song only being played in the parade and not in Dreams?

  • Yes Gaz, this will only be the parade theme song, although we might see it used as a more general 20th Anniversary anthem as seen here. Dreams has its own score (and song!) produced by a different team.

  • Wow! So there will be 2 songs for the 20th anniversary. Disneyland only borrowed the song from Brother Bear for its 50th anniversary and Disneyland Paris has 2 brand new song for its 20th, this is gonna be big!

  • Can’t wait to see and hear it all. Looks like DLP has done Walt proud this year.
    Can’t wait till May when we go.

  • i’m so excited! waaa

  • Really good song and great show! Although i love “Just like we dreamed it”, i think this one will become just as loved! Cant wait to see it altogether with the new parade!

  • As well as this new song and the new song for Dreams, there is a third new song called Believe In magic for the 20th Anniversary Celebration Train. So in total, three new songs for DLP’s 20th Anniversary. Gosh, we are being spoilt.

  • Is that the first appearance of The Blue Fairy outside of the Pinocchio ride?

  • Well what a load of rubbish! I can’t believe that this is following great songs like Just Like We Dreamed It, Dancin’ or All Around The World. It reminds me of that dreadful UK Eurovision entry ‘Flying the Flag.’

  • Thanks for keeping us updated. Unfortunately I have to wait until June to see this, unless I can wangle a quick trip there earlier.
    Great that we have three new songs this year. I was rather tired of the current song with OUAD parade, as I have preferred previous parade songs and music, so looking forward to new ones.

  • @ Martin Rowe
    Well she opened the MSEP for almost a decade at DLP.
    I’m not really sure but she might have appear in several shows for special events.

  • Really? That’s the song? I guess I will see the parade once and that’s it. I’m not a fan of it.

  • Sorry I’m not a fan of it, the last song was very memorable, I will wait for a better quality version of it before I make my mind up, my daughter does not like it.

  • I love the song. I am getting excited to visit DLRP again and think they have done a GREAT job!

  • Loved it. It’s gotten me excited even more. The costumes are amazing, they are so colourful and so beautiful, it was good to see them on the characters rather than just pictures of them. I’ve asked my son if he wants to see it – he’s 3- his exact words were “no mummy wait til may. big and better at Disneyland.”

    It made me really happy seeing this, and hearing it, it just filled me with a feeling of happiness. Loved it.

    Yes this is going to be a big year. And to have this as the new Parade music and by the looks of it, overall anthem, it’s definitely shaping up to be the year that’s not to be missed!

    Why do you think it was an “awkward moment”? I mean, the shareholders didn’t have to go on stage and take part on the show. So, what’s awkward about an entertainment company showing off a little bit of its magic? If I were a shareholder I’d love a little fun in between the business stuff.

    Are you sure the Central Plaza is going to stay empty? On the video graphics on the main Dreams page, in here, are some flower beds in one of the pictures.

    I was at DLP for the first time in May 2011. Loved it. I’d like to know if there’s convention space at Hotel New York and Disneyland Hotel. I stayed at Disney’s Newport Bay Club, so I visited its gorgeous convention center.

    I forgot to say that I liked this new song, but didn’t fall in love with it as I did with “Dancin’ A Catchy Rhythm” and “All Around the World”. Songs that I use to listen to countless times.

  • I was there Fryday. It was amazing! Everything is so beautiful. The costumes are great. I freakin’ love the song too!
