‘Disney Dreams!’ to premiere 31st March… broadcast live online at MyTF1.fr

Sunday, 4th March 2012 at 15:05

Shhh… Whisper it, but the 1st April 2012 showing of new nighttime spectacular Disney Dreams! won’t actually be its first performance. The odd Sunday launch date might have given it away, or the fact that Disneyland Paris has a history of premiering its new events exclusively for the press a day beforehand, but now it’s confirmed: the so-called world premiere of Disney Dreams! will take place Saturday, 31st March 2012. This will be part of a wider, private 20th Anniversary press event to take place over the 31st March/1st April weekend. But even the press won’t be the absolute first to see the completed show; no, that honour naturally goes to the resort’s thousands of Cast Members, who will get their very own private performance on 29th March.

But here’s an interesting development: thanks to a tie-up with French television network TF1, the 31st March premiere performance will also be broadcast live online, via their MyTF1.fr website. The website is currently running a contest for four French viewers to win passes to the press event and assist in the broadcast, which will be hosted by station personality Sandrine Quétier. On the night of 31st March, the main TF1 channel will broadcast three special promotional spots with Sandrine to introduce the winners of the contest and count down to the premiere of Disney Dreams!, which will apparently then be broadcast live online at the MyTF1 website from 10.30pm.

It has been pointed out that this broadcast, although certainly a giant spoiler for the show, may well be edited or missing segments due to rights issues. It’s also not known whether this particular live stream would be available to view outside of France. Toy Story Playland had a similar live online broadcast on its opening day, hosted on the official Disneyland Paris website, featuring a tour of the attractions and interviews with Imagineers and guests.

And if you can’t make it to any of these premieres? You’re invited to join us for our full HD video of the show, to premiere just a few days later on DLRP Magic! Video, our YouTube channel and of course embedded right here on DLRP Today!

Press release (in French) follows…

L’animatrice star de la chaîne invite les téléspectateurs à souhaiter un Joyeux Anniversaire au célèbre parc d’attractions

Disneyland Paris lance le 31 mars prochain les festivités de son 20ème anniversaire et révèle en avant-première son nouveau spectacle nocturne, Disney Dreams® !. Pour célébrer cet anniversaire, TF1 et Disneyland Paris s’associent dans une opération inédite orchestrée par Sandrine Quétier.

Pour participer, il suffit d’envoyer avant le 15 mars sur MYTF1.fr une vidéo, une photo, une chanson, un dessin en hommage aux 20 ans du Parc. Les 4 gagnants seront les invités spéciaux de cette grande fête d’anniversaire.

Le Spectacle Disney Dreams

Dès le 1er avril 2012, le spectacle Disney Dreams®! éblouira les visiteurs à la nuit tombée dans une profusion de lumières, de couleurs et de magie. Ce spectacle incontournable va au-delà de l’imagination grâce à des effets spéciaux créés spécialement pour cette première mondiale à Disneyland Paris. Pour la première fois, les visiteurs seront au cœur de l’action grâce à des projections d’images sur le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant. Les «Imagineers» Disney ont travaillé pendant de longs mois pour développer ce spectacle nocturne unique en son genre qui émerveillera petits et grands. De nouveaux effets spéciaux ont été spécialement développés pour créer des illusions nouvelles et transformer le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant. Cette première mondiale met en scène des lasers éblouissants, des jets d’eau spectaculaires et des effets pyrotechniques absolument incroyables pour finir par un bouquet final époustouflant.

  • Only French IP-adresses can watch the live stream on MyTF1 , others can’t.

  • Glen — Are you referring to the live stream of TF1 (the actual television channel)? Only 3 short TV spots will be broadcast on the actual network, directing viewers to the website. The live stream from Disneyland at 10.30pm will be separate and online-only, so we’ll probably have no idea until the date itself whether it can be viewed outside of France.

  • I don’t think I would want to watch it anyway, why spoil it for when you are actually going to be there!

  • Google Chrome and its “Stealthy” addon will probably allow access to the stream from the UK

  • I agree, I’m going to be looking at photos but seeing the full show will have to wait until in person in June.

  • I am quite happy to wait until I go to see it:)

  • Will the public in the park also be able to see the show or will it be done when the park is shut? Hope so as I am there that weekend but going home on Eurostar on 1st April!
