Flowers are blooming, birds are singing and the weather is finally starting to warm up across Europe. It could only mean that Spring has finally arrived at Disneyland Paris. And the Park is not taking the arrival of Spring lightly and is celebrating it in a huge way. Shows, floral displays and special greetings from some of your favourite Disney friends has filled this kingdom with a Spring event like you’ve never experienced before.
Decorations can be found through out the Park. The floral displays can very much be compared to the fantastic work done each year for Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival. Aristocats Marie, Toulouse and Berlioz are featured in the central hub area. While a young Simba and Nala can also be seen playing around in another section of the Gardens. Banners have magically appeared elsewhere around buildings and lamp post along Main Street.
A few merchandise items are on sale. Most of the merchandise is similar to previous Flower and Garden Festival goods. Although a few unique items like pins are also available to guests to purchase.
Some of our favourite Characters including Thumper and Miss Bunny are hopping out to greet everyone for a limited time. Minnie’s Little Spring Train rolls along Main Street several times each day to the delight of families. All the Characters on board the train are wearing the latest Spring fashions.
New for the 2015 event is the Cavalcade “Goofy’s Garden Party”. Which features Mickey & Minnie going down Main Street in colourful Spring inspired vehicles. The Mouse couple are join by dancers and a host of well known Disney Characters, including Goofy who is hosting this fun and vibrant Spring party.
“Welcome to Spring” completes the Spring line up. The residents of Main Street take to the Streets to celebrate the arrival of Spring. The show builds up to a spectacular show in front of the Castle Stage to a number of Mary Poppins songs.
Swing Into Spring continues until the 31st of May, 2015.
