Disneyland Paris Turns 20 With Flash Mob, Celebrities, Live Stream, Air Planes, and Magic!

On this day 20 years ago, Disneyland Paris opened its happy gates. Since then, millions of people have visited this magical place. It is now the most visited tourist attraction in Europe. To celebrate 20 years of magic, Disneyland Paris has gone all out. They have introduced the new Disney Dreams spectacular at night, the Disney Magic on Parade during the day, and a host of other special goodies scattered around the resort.

To celebrate the day that started it all, Disneyland Paris hosted a live webstream that the good folks at Disneyland Resort Paris Fans have posted on youtube. It IS in French but still fun to watch.

The day started off with a ceremony in the middle of Main Street with a beautiful purple carpet and the castle in the background.

Another part of the celebration on April 12, 2012 was a live Flash Mob. It was magical and it is safe to say there have been few flash mobs that were more enthusiastic and magical. The cast members involved did a great job.

Many celebrities also wished Disneyland Paris a happy 20th birthday.

Even the French Air Force airobatic team contributed to the celbration:

Disneyland Paris is billing their 20th anniversary as the year you don’t want to miss. All indications coming out of Paris seem to corroborate this statement.

Happy Birthday Disneyland Paris. Here is to many more magical years!
