Photos and Videos : Disneyland Paris "Pirates and Princesses" Festival Has Started - Full Pictorial Report

Disneyland Paris "Pirates and Princesses" festival has started and i have dozens of colorful official pictures for you today!

The "Pirates and Princesses" show/parade has 100 performers - dancers, acrobats and characters - and play 4 times a day and 7 days a week. On the Princesses side, there is Mickey Mouse with 9 Disney Princesses and Moana / Viana! On the Pirates side guests can see Minnie Mouse with Captain Hook, Mr. Smee, Jack Sparrow, Peter Pan or Wendy along with 21 pirates acrobats, as it also includes acrobatics, as you'll see on the pictures below.

The structure of the show is simple: 2 units one for pirates - artwork above, one for princesses - artwork below. Each of them starts from both ends of the parade route. One leave from the parade entrance near It's a Small World with a first stop at the "Castle Stage", while the second leave from the other parade entrance at Town Square and will make a stop at the center of Main Street. After the first stop which will last around 4 to 5 minutes the two units will move again up to Central Plaza.

On Central Plaza, 4 scenes on the 4 flower beds, allow during this last "Show Stop" of 4 to 6 minutes, to offer a new interactive dance with the guests. Then, the two units continue their paths. Interactivity is also the central element of the show. The visitors are involved with a specific dance for each of the two teams.

Let's start by having a look at the Princesses team!

I´m just coming back from DLP and I have to say that I am still singing the new Princess and Pirates song.

The show is amasing, colourful and very entertaining.

Good work DLP!
