Next year Disneyland Paris will turn 25 and, today, the resort announced that the celebration of this milestone will begin on March 26th, 2017. On that day, Star Tours: The Adventures Continue will make its French debut as will Hyperspace Mountain — the Space Mountain overlay which has proven a hit at Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland.


Also arriving for the 25th-anniversary celebration will be the Disney Stars on Parade and the new show Mickey presents “Happy Anniversary Disneyland Paris,” where Mickey Mouse will start the celebration by assembling as many of his famous friends as possible for a huge anniversary party. This festive show will take place daily for all guests to enjoy. In addition, fans of the Disney Princesses will be able to witness some of their most beloved Princesses as they host their own sparkling show The Starlit Princess Waltz at Royal Castle Stage.

Of course, as has become a staple of Disney milestone celebrations, a new nighttime spectacular will also debut in 2017 with Disney Illuminations. This new show, with dazzling lights, projections and breath-taking special effects, will be conducted by Mickey Mouse onto Sleeping Beauty Castle. It will transport Guests to a location where the stories of Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Frozen and the motion pictures of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Star Wars and Pirates of the Caribbean will come to life before guest’s astonished eyes.

For the record, while the celebration will begin on March 26th, the resort's actually birthday is April 12th.
