Disney’s Halloween Festival
Head to Disneyland® Paris this October and discover the Halloween magic
Disney's Halloween Festival kicks off with fright fest in October of each year. Discover more about the great family fun and frightening attractions available to you with Eurotunnel Le Shuttle's guide to Halloween season at Disneyland® Paris.
Mickey's Halloween Treat in the Street
You can head out to Fantasyland at Le Theatre du Chateau to join Mickey's Halloween Treat in the Street celebrations. The Royal Castle Stage is fully decked out in Halloween décor – ghosts, goblins, pumpkins, bunting and a Goofy skeleton.
Meet'N'Greet in Fantasyland
Celebrate Halloween in Fantasyland where you can meet and take photos with your favourite Disney villain. You could bump into everyone from Jafar to Dr Facilier, and Cruella de Vil to the Wicked Witch. Remember to wear your most grimacing expression.
You'll be able to meet Pooh, Eeyore, Tigger and Piglet in the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh Fantasyland.
Disney's Maleficious Halloween Party
Disneyland® Paris hosts Disney's Maleficious Halloween Party held at Central Plaza Stage where you can witness Dr Facilier from The Princess and the Frog and Maleficent battle on the stage in front of the Sleeping Beauty Castle.
Enjoy After-Dark Parties
Once the park closes to the general public, it re-opens from 8pm for the special ticketed Halloween parties. There's entertainment for adults and kids alike so be ready for an unforgettable experience.
Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party
Take the kids along to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party where you can participate in a mysterious ghostly ball at Phantom Manor. The party starts at 8:30pm and runs until 1am so you have lots of time to act as one of the frightening pirates of the Caribbean in Adventureland or get involved in other devilish acts.
It's free for kids under 3 years of age and it's best to be there once the park re-opens by 5pm so you can enjoy a few rides, attractions and capture some photos with characters before heading out for the party. You can enjoy attractions including Le Carrousel de Lancelot, Peter Pan's Flight, Big Thunder Mountain and Mad Hatter's Tea Cups in Fantasyland.
Adults and kids aged above 12 can enjoy after-dark fun at the Terrorific Night featuring street shows and a Halloween short film written exclusively for Disneyland® Paris by famous French author Maxime Chattam.
The frightening affair sees Disney villains lurk in the shadows of the park and the attractions have added spooky effects to make your ride even more adventurous. You'll find street entertainment and 'terror zones' all around the park.
Disney's Halloween Party
The most popular night is the grand finale, Disney's Halloween Party where you'll have scary encounters with Disney villains. At the stroke of midnight, brace yourself for the sound and light show that takes place in front of Sleeping Beauty's castle with a bone-chilling programme to keep you on your toes. The fun starts just after 9pm and entry for kids aged under 3 is free.
More Spooky Entertainment
Catch the parade
Frontierland in Disneyland® Paris transforms into 'Halloweenland' where all of the classic Disney villains including the likes of Cruella de Vil and Captain Hook, parade through the streets.
Catch the Pumpkin Men, stilt-walking Pink Witches and other classic Disney villains as they march around the park and menace the crowds. You might find other characters pop up during the parade so keep an eye out for favourites like Lilo and Stitch. Make sure to stick around for the daily Disney Villain's Halloween Showtime, for a frightfully entertaining night.
More Halloween fun for the kids
Take the kids to a face painter or a 'crazy coiffeurs' for a ghoulish makeover. Children aged 3 to 11 can enjoy free face painting and get a new hairstyle with colourful hair sprays.
The Halloween Stage directly in front of the Sleeping Beauty Castle features a variety of shows and kids can hang out with Goofy and his magic pot to learn how to make pumpkin soup. They can dance alongside Goofy's friends, Minnie and the Bat Boys.
You can also take the kids trick or treating – check the park maps for locations for collecting candy.
