International Women’s Rights Day
Disneyland Paris did a great job celebrating International Women’s Rights Day last Sunday with a surprise new planter design featuring Minnie right at the entrance of Disneyland Park!
In the Parks, Guests could obtain a free button, and at night, a fun pre-show featuring Disney heroines was presented on Sleeping Beauty Castle:
The Princess Promenade
Faced with the issue of closing the Princess Pavilion on Tuesday, the Disneyland Paris entertainment team wheeled out the flower float known from “Pirates & Princesses” and 8 Princesses greeted guests on Main Street and even stopped for a show in the hub!
With a medley of classic Disney songs, this simple yet effective production truly delighted Guests and showed the commitment of the teams to keep making Magic!
Even though it only lasted 2 days, this great effort will be remembered as a success!
New Park Tickets
On Monday, Disneyland Paris rolled out their new ticket design.
Themed to Mickey, Elsa, Woody, Spider-Man and Darth Vader, they’re being rolled out across all ticketing locations.
While the news was about Disney California Adventure, Disney Parks revealed a lot of details about Avengers Campus this week, which will have many similarities with our edition.
In particular we saw more details about Pym Kitchen, the Spider-Man attraction which will be called “WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure” and merchandise including customizable “Spider Bots”.

Some new exclusive Pandora charms themed to Cheshire Cat and Alice’s Curious Labyrinth.
Plenty of Mulan items in a lot of the Resort’s shops.
