More details about the FanDaze event in Disneyland Paris appeared in January, just as the themed packages for the event went on sale. The FanDaze is said to be a series of events, specifically created for fans. The Inaugural Party will take place on Saturday, June 2nd, in the Walt Disney Studios Park, and Disneyland Paris announced more details about what to expect at this party.
In terms of character encounters; the well-known names Mickey, Minnie, Duffy, ShellieMay, Donald, Daisy, Goofy and Pluto will greet fans in outfits created just for the event (see image below). The park will also welcome a never-before-seen character; Ortensia, a friend of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. She will make her world first appearance during the Inaugural Party. Fans will be able to meet many old and new characters during the event, including old friends from shows such as Darkwing Duck, Goof Troop and TaleSpin. Frozone will join his friends, Mr. and Mrs. Incredible, to celebrate the return of this beloved family in the highly anticipated film, Incredibles 2.
For one night only, this event offers many new shows, such as the formally announced Dance your Ducktales Parade and the nighttime spectacular Max-Live! Gettin’ Goofy with It. The interactive show Stitch Live! will be hosted by Jumba and Pleakley, two of the most comedic characters from the series. Ortensia will get her own introduction on the Hollywood Boulevard, where journalists and photographers will follow her. The evening ends with the Farewell Street Party, where 80 characters will be present for one last picture.
There will be more exclusive encounters besides the characters. In the Animagique Theater there will be two different conferences with Disney Imagineers. The first is with Tom Fitzgerald, Portfolio Creative Executive, who will be focusing on Disneyland Paris. Daniel Jue, Ethan Reed, and Charlie Watanabe will give an exclusive peek into the world of Duffy & Friends. Additional tickets for these conferences will be available. The Art of Disney Animation, an ‘attraction’ which gives you the opportunity to explore your inner animator, will be hosted by Disney Legend and former animator Andres Deja, who will give the attendants exclusive insights in the animation process.
To give all the guests a special VIP-experience, there will be multiple extras during the party such as, special performances by musicians, photographers roaming the streets to capture your magic moments, a Sing-Along Challenge with Oswald, exclusive treats and souvenirs, and a raffle ticket to win one night in the Sleeping Beauty Suite in the Disneyland Hotel.
Right now, you can book your classical or themed package on the FanDaze website.
