Season Of The Force
Season Of The Force takes over Disneyland Paris in both parks as the eternal battle between Jedi & the Dark Side continues. You will be propelled to a galaxy far, far away with mind-blowing shows, out of this world rides & unforgettable character experiences. Season of the Force runs from January 13th to March 25th.
Space Mountain has been re-themed to be Hyperspace Mountain where you will be blasted through space as a Jedi pilot fighting through countless Tie Fighters before facing a the dark side Star Destroyer. This is a mission only for the bravest Jedi!
Walt Disney Studios will be home to most of the action with several huge replicas of iconic Star Wars battle machines & Space ships. A perfect photo opportunity! There are also Star Wars themed treats on offer in various locations including Light Sabre Churros & Darth Vader cupcakes. Who knew the dark side could taste so delicious!
With many of the iconic characters from the old & new Star Wars franchises at Meet ‘n’ Greet locations throughout the parks you can be sure to keep every Star Wars fan happy. Chewbacca, Rey, Darth Vader, Kylo Ren & of course those dastardly Storm Troopers will all be out & about at various times throughout the day. A must see event is the March of the Storm Troopers led by Captain Phasma gives a mighty show of the First Order. Try not to make too much eye contact or you could be taken away for questioning as a rebel spy!! There is no order without The First Order!
The highlight of the season without a doubt is the brand new “Star Wars : A Galactic Celebration” night time spectacular in Walt Disney Studios. Using the Tower of Terror as a backing for stunning visual projections & lighting effects this is a show not to be missed. Not only will you be blown away by the projections but there are characters, music & fireworks to enhance the experience.
Swing Into Spring
Easter marks the beginning of the Swing into Spring Season at Disneyland Paris. The flowers are starting to bloom and the park beings to blossom into a life filled with colour and imagination. All areas are filled with flowers and special displays which represent springtime such as Bambi, Mary Poppins, Floral Displays & much much more.
This can be a great time to visit because the weather from the middle of march onwards is when you can be blessed with gorgeous warm weather of around 18-26 degrees. It is also a fairly quiet time for the Parks if you go before or after the Easter Holidays when queue times can be next to zero for most rides. Prices are also lower in March and can present some real value for money with Disneyland Deals often popping up at this time of year including Kids Go Free. Free Disney Dining Meal Plans & Extra Days & Nights on many packages.
Summertime at Disneyland Paris is when the Park is at it’s busiest but arguably at it’s best. This is usually when there are very few rides closed & the weather is at it’s best. Temperatures can reach35 Degrees and there is hardly ever rain.
The parks are also open for the longest at this time of year giving you days of up to 15 hours in the parks each day ! Every night sees a fireworks display and the famous Disney Dreams castle light & fountains show to round of the night at closing time. As you would expect this is the most expensive time to visit Disney especially during July & August and ride times can be very long for every ride in both the main park & the Studios.
Halloween at Disneyland Paris is an amazing experience that everyone should try. The season lasts for the whole of October and sometimes the last week of September and the 1st week of November is included. The ghostly decorations and spooky displays really change the look of the park unlike any time of the year. Kids will love this time of the year and it’s the best chance to catch the “Disney Villains” such as Maleficent, Jack Skellington and Cruella De Vil.
Of course on Halloween itself, 31st October, you can enjoy even more spooky fun with the Special Mickey’s Halloween Party & an adults Halloween escapade in the Studios. Both are ticket only. The weather can be quite warm to quite chilly so keep an eye on forecasts if you book. The prices range from cheap at the end of September to quite expensive around the very end of October.
Christmas at Disneyland Paris
Probably the most magical season in Disneyland Paris is Christmas at DLP. Disneyland Paris at Christmas is full of wonder with the whole parks decorated in a massive amount of Christmas fairy lights, decorations and of course a magnificent Christmas Tree measuring over 20 metres tall and adorned with over 1000 beautiful ornaments.
The Christmas Season dates vary every year but is typically the 2nd week in November right through until the end of the 1st week in January. There is also a special Christmas Parade and in 2014 we began to see special Meet ‘n’ Greets with Anna & Elsa from Disney’s Frozen movie.
Seeing is Believing at Christmas time and there is magic everywhere. You can wander down Main Street U.S.A and listen to the enchanting Christmas music. Of course there is also the New Year celebrations and a massive firework display which you wouldn’t want to miss !
