Countless Disneyland Paris Cast Members – including show directors, special effect designers, lighting and motion designers – have combined their expertise and creativity to develop this exclusive show, which will feature a soundtrack comprised of some of the most iconic Marvel scores that have been specially reorchestrated with a symphony orchestra composed of more than 70 musicians at the famous Abbey Road Studios in London.

To continually push beyond the boundaries of innovation, the laser video projectors that are used for this show boast energy-efficient technology while delivering high-quality images.

This show was yet another opportunity for Disneyland Paris to collaborate with the European leader in drone shows, Bordeaux-based company Dronisos, who were recently named as the official technology provider of the resort for the second year in a row. This collaboration has notably paved the way for the creation of the resort’s 30th Anniversary’s nighttime drone show “Disney D-Light,” which has been dazzling guests of all ages each night since March 6th, 2022 and was even named “Best Live Entertainment 2022” during the Park World Excellence Awards Ceremony that was held in London in September 2022.

With Marvel Avengers Campus, the Disney Hotel New York® – The Art of Marvel, and “Avengers: Power the Night”, Disneyland Paris has become the ULTIMATE destination in Europe for Marvel fans who want to enjoy an immersive experience alongside their favorite Super Heroes.

For the Grand Finale of the resort’s 30th Anniversary celebration, the incredible “Disney Dreams!” nighttime spectacular, which has received one of the highest satisfaction rates since the opening of the resort, will make its big comeback – giving a new generation of guests the opportunity to discover this iconic show.

Beginning April 12th, 2023, “Disney Dreams!” will once again dazzle guests each night at Disneyland Park by taking them on a magical and emotional journey following the “Disney D-Light” drone show – a powerful combination of experiences that will result in an unforgettable nighttime sequence.

Guided by Peter Pan’s shadow, guests will discover or rediscover some of the greatest Disney stories projected on Sleeping Beauty Castle during an extraordinary journey featuring iconic songs from Disney and Pixar fan favorites Beauty and the Beast, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Lion King, Tangled, and many others.

“Disney Dreams!,” which originally debuted in 2012, offers an incredible burst of colors and light using state-of-the-art technology, dazzling projections, spectacular lasers and fountains, and sensational pyrotechnic effects. The mapping technology used for the show also creates illusions of rotating towers and swinging motions on the walls of Sleeping Beauty Castle!

The 2023 version of “Disney Dreams!” will be even more exceptional, as Sleeping Beauty Castle’s rooftops will be decked out with innovative LED technology that light up in sync with the show’s nostalgic soundtrack. An additional upgrade to the show’s technical equipment includes the installation of energy-efficient laser video projectors, which will make it possible to reduce energy use by 50%, while delivering a breathtaking show.

After being closed for refurbishment, the happiest cruise that ever sailed will finally reopen in the Spring of 2023 to enchant Disneyland Paris guests. Nestled in the heart of Fantasyland since the Park’s opening in 1992, this can’t-miss family attraction will invite guests of all ages to go on a wonderful journey around the world to one of the most iconic Disney Parks’ songs.

For almost 60 years, this beloved attraction has featured hundreds of dolls (Audio-Animatronics) wearing national costumes and singing an emotion-filled song called “it’s a small world” to celebrate global unity. The refurbishment work contributed to reviving the highly colorful appearance of its outdoor façade and allowed for several technical upgrades.
