Today the Disney Villains await you every day in October at Disneyland Paris for a pure Disney Halloween you’ll never forget!

New: Disney’s Maleficious Halloween Party, an all-new show hosted by the sinister Maleficent!

Disney’s ‘Mistress of All Evil’ awaits you daily for a brand new show full of delightfully deadly surprises! Still seething with jealousy for not having been invited to Princess Aurora’s christening, Maleficent plans to cast a spell of terror over SleepingBeautyCastle. This year, she has given the job to the latest arrival to the family of Disney Villains, Dr. Facilier from the Walt Disney Pictures film The Princess and the Frog. Although Facilier proclaims himself ‘World’s greatest sorcerer,’ Maleficent has plans to show him the true tricks of the trade. The height of the show – a sinfully delicious shower of treats!


New: Mickey’s Halloween Treat in the Street! An interactive show with Mickey and friends!

Mickey and his closest friends are dressed in their Halloween best and await you for some unforgettable memories. You won’t want to miss them each day on Castle Stage as Mickey invites you to his Halloween party. Come dance with Minnie, learn to Hula Hoop with Goofy and go on a bat hunt with Donald… while Mickey plays referee for his friends as they skilfully master each event.

Interactive fun several times a day followed by a sweet ending – a shower of Halloween candy!
