Disneyland Paris 20th Anniversary Launch Weekend

Disneyland Paris president Philippe Gas, the Disney Characters, two thousand Cast Members and even the French Air Force stunt display team came together at 9.45am on Thursday, 12th April 2012 to celebrate exactly 20 years to the day that Disneyland Park — then Euro Disneyland — opened its gates to the public. Experience the whole event, including the welcome speech, the spectacular flashmob dance to “Magic Everywhere!” and the truly epic walk along the purple carpet, cheered along by Cast Members from every department, as if you were there with our exclusive original video.

  • Great video, thanks!

  • I was outside the gates while this happened. They only let about 2000 guests in Town Square, so I missed it. But it was still a brilliant day!

    Also, I did like the dancing of the chef at the front. He wasn’t in time, but he still put a lot of effort into it. XD

  • OMG Portuguese flag back there :D (sorry couldn’t help but it was great to see my flag back there!)

  • My family and I were there, probably about 100 people back!
    Walking down main street to the cast members applauding us, was really quite emotional. One of those once in a lifetime kind of moments!
    Thank you Disney!!!
    I even just managed to get one of the 1000 limited edition pins!
