[VIDEO] 20th Anniversary Dedication Ceremony & Disney Dreams! Pre-Show

Friday, 6th April 2012 at 01:36
Disneyland Paris 20th Anniversary Launch Weekend

When Disneyland Park re-opened its gates at 9.40pm on 31st March, a magical glow had already fallen upon the land. Stepping into Main Street, U.S.A., the twinkling new Main Street Station greeted invited guests — as did some extra-special invitees: the giant, illuminated World of Color pre-show puppets, brought over especially for the occasion! This video takes you to “A Night in Disneyland” for the 20th Anniversary Dedication Ceremony as if you were there.

Everything is included: from walking into Town Square, to the ceremony itself with Philippe Gas, footballer Zinedine Zidane and Mickey Mouse (at 10:00), to the epic, emotional walk up Main Street, U.S.A. prior to the Disney Dreams! World Premiere (at 16:00), when Cast Members from every land and every attraction lined the street to wave and cheer guests along with cries of “Joyeux Anniversaire!” as golden confetti in the shape of the number ’20’ rained from above. Truly an exceptional and unforgettable ending and beginning to these chapters in Disneyland Paris history.

  • Wauw those lightcharacters like lumiere are amazing!
    Will they be there every evening of the year?
    Or is it just for opening?

  • ^ Exactly what I was about to ask – can we expect these to stay? They fit perfectly into the theme of the year.

    • Unfortunately I think they were shipped over just for this occasion (and the Cast Member premiere). My reaction: they look better, and certainly more “fun”, than Fantillusion!

  • I agree – really wish those lit Characters could stay!

  • The de la terre a la lune music!! At least DLP remember what a classic it is!!
