VILLAINS are staging a takeover of Disneyland Paris this Saturday as the park’s Halloween celebrations start – and the thrills and chills aren’t just for kids, with frightful fun for grown-ups too.
The likes of Maleficent, Captain Hook, the Queen of Hearts, Cruella de Vil and sea witch Ursula will be ruling the roost, along with all manner of spooks, skeletons and shivers down the spine.
But during the haunting Halloween season, which runs from October 1 to November 6, there’ll be goosebumps aplenty for adults too as eerie gets eerier at Phantom Manor and the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.
According to park chiefs: “Disneyland Park will be home to many Disney Villains. Trick or treat? They always have more than one prank to pull on guests who dare to meet them.”
The Royal Castle Stage will be the centre of acitivities, while there’ll also be a long-awaited comeback for the Mickey’s Halloween Celebration cavalcade, which returns after a two-year absence.
Top attraction, however, is sure to be Nightfall with Disney Villains as the bad guys take over the spectacular son-et-lumiere show beamed onto Sleeping Beauty’s Castle after darkness falls.
The Halloween theme will also run through other attractions across the parks. For the first time, too, the Disney Hotels will be decked out in suitably seasonal trappings. Sleep tight.
Little monsters can test their courage in attractions such as Blanche-Neige et les Sept Nains, Alice’s Curious Labyrinth and La Tanière du Dragon – with thrills for older children and adults at Phantom Manor.
Best bet for mums, dads and older kids will be the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror in the Walt Disney Studios Park. Already suitably sinister, the 13-storey drop attraction will be spookier than ever.
Watch out, too, for Disney Halloween Parties on October 29 and 31, when guests can enjoy a selection of attractions from nightfall until 2am, including a midnight haunting of Main Street USA.
