Happy anniversary Disneyland Paris! Today is the 26th anniversary of a Disney park that holds a special place in my heart. To celebrate, lets take a look back at the 25th Anniversary Grand Celebration from last year! The celebration that Disneyland Paris put on last year was the most amazing thing I have ever experienced at any Disney park for anniversary day. I don’t think it will ever be beat!
The day started out bright and early since the ceremony was starting shortly after the park opened. Check out my awesome ears in the colors of the 25th anniversary!
Once breakfast at the Disneyland Hotel was finished we headed into the parks. They even had special anniversary day tickets!
We headed to our spot, got situated and waited for the festivities. Oh man, it did not disappoint. Thanks to my bestie Heather we were able to tag team the whole ceremony. She took photos, I took video clip. I pieced together all of my clips and made one really long video if you care to see it. LOL! Don’t mind some of the shaking, I was seriously crying over how amazing it was.
If you get bored, skip to the end when the cast members come out. I cried so hard. All those cast members wanted to be part of such a special day and they all learned choreography!! My heart literally exploded.
If you love Disney characters and original songs, you would have been in heaven. SO many characters! I couldn’t believe it! Here is just a couple photos (SO many to choose from. Thanks Heather!)
It was so well done. Each land came out with their own song and characters and it was so heartwarming to see a Disney park care so much about the actual anniversary day. You can really tell they take pride in their park.
After the ceremony, we had a little bit of time to meet the characters in their special ONE DAY ONLY anniversary outfits! How gorgeous are these guys?!
And some time to take a couple castle photos, obviously. I love me some castle photos.
Then we grabbed our spots for the Cavalcade. Oh. My. Gosh. The. Cavalcade. You know all those characters that came out during the grand celebration? Yeah. They did TWO parades during the day will ALL those characters! It was crazy!!
Again, here is a video of the first cavalcade. Trust me, it is worth watching and you will be singing along by the end. I LOVE this song!!
Here are just a snippet of photos from both cavalcades. Yes we watched it twice. It was that good!
I always here people talking about how they have had a magical experience in a Disneyland park and I never fully believed it would happen to me. This day was it. It truly was magical. From start to finish. I mean, how can it not be when you end your day like this:
It was an unforgettable day that I will remember for the rest of my life. So happy I was able to be a part of it!
