Disneyland Paris new "Swing into Spring" season started last Saturday April 5 and Max Fan, D&M contributor and DLPWelcome webmaster was there to shoot glorious photos and videos with a sunny sky!
In this part one we'll had a look at the Welcome to Spring show happening on Town Square playing each days except Thursday and Friday at 11h55 – 12h10 – 12h40 – 12h55 – 15h20 and 15h35, except changes. on Town Square guests will find flowers everywhere as well as Mary Poppins penguins. Welcome to the Spring as well as the other show on Central Plaza include songs from Mary Poppins and although it's a theme that fits well with spring there might be another reason for that. As you may have read in the previous update this Swing into Spring season was prepared one year in advance and at that time the Mary Poppins musical was suppose dot open at Paris Theatre Mogador. Finally, partly because french singers are so poorly gifted for playing american musical comedy the production couldn't find anyone (!) and he Mary Poppins musical was cancelled! But back one year ago DLP probably thought that the musical would be open ( and popular ) by now and it might be a reason why they choose a Mary poplins theme for this spring season. OR may be the cancellation of the musical gave them a kind of "green light" to create their own inspired Mary Poppins shows, here at DLP.
Anyway, as you've seen with the video above Welcome to Spring is a small 10 minutes show but it helps to bring some life to Main Street U.S.A and it's a kind of surprise show very welcome to bring back some of the magic of street animations that was there in the early years of the park. The choice of songs is fine but considering that the costumes / ballets is a mixed between a Mary Poppins - Hello Dolly atmosphere the excellent song "Put up your Sunday clothes" from Hello Dolly would have been perfect in the medley.
