Become a Princess or a Pirate during The Festival of Pirates and Princesses
During The Festival of Pirates and Princesses young guests can become a princess or a pirate. Budding buccaneers can get their face painted and look shipshape wearing seafaring garb fit for Cap’n Jack Sparrow himself. Princess gowns await at the likes of La Chaumière des Sept Nains and Pirate outfits can be unearthed in shops such as Le Coffre du Capitaine.
Disneyland Paris Merchandise teams have also developed an entirely new range of products related to this festival.
Meet your favorite Pirate or Princess
You can meet your favorite Pirate at their meeting point at Pirates’ Beach, among others, near Captain Hook’s galleon. Or meet your favorite Princess in the Princess Pavilion.
New Dresses for The Festival of Pirates and Princesses
For The Festival of Pirates and Princesses, new dresses were been designed for the Princesses. Below a preview of the new dresses for Belle and Jasmine.
Disney Pirate or Princess: Make your Choice!
Disney Pirate or Princess: Make your Choice! is the latest show coming to Disneyland Paris. It involves more than 85 performers. Show director Christophe Leclercq has created an interactive and unrestricted show: “This is the first time we have ever immersed our guests so fully in an outdoor show. They decide on their team and they experience a different story depending on the choice they make.”
Pirates and Disney Princesses floats
The two worlds will merge several times a day. Setting off from opposite ends of the Parade route, both the Pirates float and Disney Princesses float stop halfway and immerse guests in a musical celebration. Then, the floats will head to Central Plaza where they’ll come together for a spectacle of guest interaction.
On the Princesses float, guests will see the Princess heroes, like Cinderella and Belle. You will also see more recent favorites, like Rapunzel. Christophe says, “There will be nine Disney Princesses in total, as well as Moana—and they will be joined by none other than Mickey Mouse!” They will be surrounded by a troupe of dancers in costumes bursting with flowers and other natural sculptures and will be celebrating the Fantasyland world, where dreams come true.
On the Pirate side, a huge galleon will sail down Main Street, U.S.A. Captain Hook and Mr Smee will be on-board, up against Peter Pan and Wendy… as well as Minnie Mouse in her best buccaneer outfit! “New Characters also join this crew, including the hero from Disney Junior’s Jake and the Never Land Pirates, who will sail by on the hull of his ship!”. An acrobatic crew of pirates can be seen leaping from one mast to another or up into the air, making this spring cruise a joyful, musical adventure celebrating the spirit of Adventureland.
Home to Disneyland Park
Next, it is on to Central Plaza, in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle, where everyone converges. Guests are then invited to choose a side and take part in one of the two routines, Pirates or Princesses, along with their favorite Disney Characters, all to the same playful melody, paying homage to Disneyland Park. Disneyland is the only place where the two worlds can be enjoyed in unison! “And because the brand-new show will be on a couple of times every day, nothing is stopping you from coming back and switching sides later in the day! Both adventures have a little something everyone!” Christophe adds.
