Halloween Season at Disneyland Paris 
Funny or spooky?

Disneyland Paris released the 2016 press release for the upcoming Halloween season, and here it is!

Halloween at Disneyland Paris 
Funny or spooky?

– From 1 October to 2 November 2016 –

For Halloween, the Disneyland Park is getting a makeover, as a strange and spooky atmosphere creeps over the Park. For just one month, guests will be amused, spooked and surprised by Disney Characters. This Halloween season, both the goodies and the baddies at Disneyland Park, will create unique experiences for guests, making them laugh and tremble. In all their finery, Disney Villains will meticulously prepare their most spectacular tricks to tease guests. This is their chance to take the lead, providing laughs and ghostly moments. Mickey and friends will still be around, so expect pranks and chuckles from them this season! 


From 1 October to 2 November 2016, Disneyland Park will run on laughter and shivers. Despite allowing the Disney Villains to plunge guests into a spooky world, Mickey and friends will be here to help making mischief at Disneyland Park. Mickey, along with his fellow adventurers, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Scrooge McDuck and many more will be celebrating the harvest at Mickey’s Halloween Celebration. 

Bursting with colour and fun, the parade is the climax of the seasonal celebration, which takes a villainous turn soon enough. Also, to make the most of the celebration, head to the Halloween Costume Corner1 to discover the costumes Daisy is showcasing for the occasion. Stitch also promises to make a few appearances to create a spectacularly mischievous Halloween for guests. Guests can expect to meet plenty of Disney Characters for monstrously funny souvenir photos.


Then it is showtime for the Disney Villains... Maleficent, queen of the Disney Villains will take possession of Castle Courtyard, claiming it as Maleficent’s Court1. This fearsome fairy will pose beside her unnerving bramble bush: a captivating encounter for half-amused, half-frightened guests. Maleficent’s spell will extend to Royal Castle Stage where the Disney Villains will challenge the most audacious guests to attend their show if they dare: It’s Good to Be Bad with the Disney Villains! 

Because this year, the Disney Villains have planned even more surprises for guests. Jafar (Aladdin), Cruella de Vil (101 Dalmatians), as well as Gaston (Beauty and the Beast), the Queen of Hearts (Alice in Wonderland), and Captain Hook (Peter Pan) will be there. The witch from Snow White, Frollo (The Hunchback of Notre Dame) and even Dr Facilier (The Princess and The Frog) will also be coming to wreak havoc.

Guests looking for a bit of adventure will also love the Park attractions, which provide thrills throughout the year. The loops of Space Mountain®: Mission 2, the frightening track of Indiana JonesTM and the Temple of Peril and the delirious speeds of Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith will send shivers down the spines of even the most seasoned rollercoaster fan. And for more unusual thrills, guests will be able to venture off towards The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. This aptly named attraction will allow guests to rediscover their love of fear, as the elevator plunges them down. One thing is certain; the view is worth the detour.


The Halloween spirit will stretch its ghostly arms throughout Disneyland® Park, from Main Street, U.S.A. up to Sleeping Beauty Castle. Sinister and comical, Disney’s Funky Pumpkins* will oversee this transformation, amusing and intriguing guests. Meanwhile, the smiling phantoms of the former inhabitants of Main Street, U.S.A. will invite guests to pose with them, allowing them to immortalise the moment. 

The most daring guests can go to Castle Courtyard, which has been taken over by an imposing bramble. Its worrying form, resembling a strange dragon, will change colour when night falls, transporting guests to a mysterious world, where they can enjoy a spooky experience. 


The most daring guests at Disneyland Park can enjoy the culmination of the season, Disney’s Halloween Party2 on 31 October 2016 until 1 am. When night falls, they will be able to continue to relish the atmosphere in the Park with fun, frights and surprises, as part of a unique and original experience at the mercy of Mickey and his friends and the tricks they have in store. The Disney Villains will be happier than ever before, determined to provide thrills and chills.

With humour, frivolity and a healthy dose of mischief, Halloween will make guests laugh and tremble at Disneyland Paris, from 1 October to 2 November 2016.

DLP Halloween celebrations always have seemed a bit edgier and scarier than their USA counterparts, not necessarily in a bad way but in a culturally different way! But the description sounds fun! I do think the brambly thorned hedge could be a little more spectacular (seems pretty chintzy and cheap) but I'd love to experience it in person! Never been to DLP in the fall!
