Halloween at Disneyland Paris 

Disneyland Paris is transformed into a park of mystery and mischief during its annual Halloween festival. Scary attractions like Phantom Manor and Tower of Terror have some spooky surprises in store, while Main Street U.S.A is full of pumpkins, flickering lights and creepy sounds. The impressive Illuminations Show at Sleeping Beauty’s Castle takes on a Halloween theme, and will surely leave you feeling bewitched. This Halloween festival takes place from the 28th September until the 3rd November and all of Attraction Tickets Direct Disneyland Paris tickets will enable you to join in the festivities.

Christmas at Disneyland Paris

We went to Disneyland Paris at Christmas time a few years ago and absolutely loved it. Christmas is one of my favourite times of year and there is no one that celebrates it better than Disney. Christmas magic combines with Disney magic, there are wall-to-wall Christmas decorations throughout the parks, Christmas songs are constantly playing and the giant Disneyland Paris Christmas tree is spectacular.

The Christmas parades and shows are fantastic too. Join in the Christmas sing-a-long as Mickey lights up the giant Christmas tree, go to a Christmas ball with Disney Princesses and meet your favourite Disney characters, as well as Santa Claus himself!
