Disneyland Paris Festival of Pirates and Princesses Song and Costumes Previewed

Disneyland Paris will host a brand new show, the Festival of Pirates and Princesses later this spring. The event, running from March 31st until May 31st, will bring many new characters to Disneyland Park. The main feature of the event will be a show Disney Pirate or Princess: Make your Choice! The show will allow guests to choose their own story and become a pirate or a princess. Read more information about it here. The Disneyland Paris YouTube channel has released two new dance tutorial videos showing off the choreography for this new show.


The video is hosted by Betty Rose who teaches us the dance moves for team Princess. At the end of the video she is joined by two more dancers and they perform the finished dance to a new song, which I am guessing is called Princess Power. The dancers’ new costumes appear to be inspired by the Swing Into Spring season from 2014 to 2016. During the show, the princesses and Mickey Mouse will ride on a garden themed float to Central Plaza in front of Sleeping Beauty castle to meet up with the pirates. Belle and Jasmine’s new princess dresses for the event have already been revealed.

This time, we join Jimmy Ocean to teach us the pirate dance. Again, we can see the new costumes for the pirate dancers.  The song is the same as the princess song, but with different words, and I would guess that this version is called Pirate Power. The Pirates will set sail on an all new pirate ship float and will sail through the park until they encounter the princesses. Captain Hook, Mr. Smee, Peter Pan, Wendy, Jake the Pirate and Minnie Mouse will be on team pirate.

The show will be performed several times a day, so you can come back and swap teams. So, which side will you choose, Pirates or Princesses?
