Disney Resort Cancelling Multiple Popular Holiday Parties

For many people, there is no greater vacation than a Disney vacation. Once you pass through the gates of a Disney Resort, it’s like the magic just permeates every part of your day. The most popular Disney Resorts are Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disneyland Resort in California. However, Disney has other Resorts around the world, including Hong Kong Disneyland, Tokyo Disneyland, Shanghai Disneyland, and Disneyland Paris. Each Resort has its own unique feel, attractions, and food.

If you have never been to Disneyland Paris, there is no better time to visit than now! The Resort is currently celebrating its 30th Anniversary. As part of the celebration, Guests can visit Disneyland Park and see the Dream… And Shine Brighter! parade during the day. Then, at night, Disney D-Light lights up the sky. This new show is more than just fireworks, it also features amazing drone art! Guests can also have fun in the brand-new Avengers Campus, which opened last summer in Walt Disney Studios Park.

Disneyland Paris’ 30th Anniversary will run through September 30, 2o23. After that, the villains will take over the Resort as the Halloween season begins! In the past, Guests have been able to purchase tickets to Halloween Parties, hosted on select nights throughout the Halloween season. However, this year, Disney has decided that there will be no Halloween parties at Disneyland Paris. There will also not be a hard-ticketed event for New Year’s Eve. Instead, the Resort will offer “an enhanced Guest experience” for both the Halloween season and New Year’s.

The Disneyland Paris Resort website has also been updated to reflect that both the Halloween and New Year’s Eve parties have been canceled. The Halloween Party page currently has the following message.
