Choose your side! Are you a Princess or are you a Pirate?

From 31st March to 31st May 2018 there was a spectacular new celebration at Disneyland Paris where guests could choose a side at the Festival of Pirates and Princesses.


Live a Princess Fairy Tale or Set Sail on a Buccaneering Pirate Voyage

Dream of being a princess? A royalty of Disney Princesses including Cinderella and Snow White took guests on a mesmerising fairy tale quest. Or if the pirate's life was for them, guests could join a rowdy crew of acrobatic rapscallions including Captain Hook, Jake, Peter Pan and Wendy and they could embark on a swashbuckling journey across the Seven Seas.

Make Dreams Come True with these Character Encounters

Guests made sure they had their best smile ready as they were able to meet Belle, Aurora, Rapunzel and other Disney Princesses in the enchanting palatial surroundings of Princess Pavilion. Consider yourself a pirate? Guests could shake hands (or hooks!) with the friendliest of buccaneers in front of Plage de Pirates, perfect for those who didn't want to grow up!

Jack Sparrow Boards Pirates of the Caribbean

Guests kept an eye out for Captain Jack Sparrow as he tried to steal the town’s treasure on Pirates of the Caribbean. You could shiver your timbers and set sail on a voyage in Disneyland Park, during a time where pirates terrorised the high seas.

Become a Princess or a Pirate

Little ones were the fairest of them all when they had their make-up perfected and hair styled just like their favourite Disney Princess. Budding pirates had their face painted and were shipshape for their voyage with the jolliest buccaneers.


Disney Stars on Parade Shines Bright for our 25th Anniversary

Guests grabbed a spot for Disney Stars on Parade with their little showstoppers. They were able to watch their favourite characters’ glide through Disneyland Park on fabulous floats and they also kept an eye out for the fire-breathing dragon!
