The magical tree lighting ceremony in Disneyland Paris

PHOTOS, VIDEO: New “Mickey’s Magical Christmas Lights” Tree Lighting and Castle Projection Show 2019 at Disneyland Paris

At nightfall, guests are in for a big surprise during this year’s updated Christmas tree lighting ceremony at Disneyland Paris. Together alongside Mickey, Minnie, and Santa Claus, they can help light up the spectacular twenty four-meter-tall tree in the middle of Main Street, U.S.A.

In the new “Mickey’s Magical Christmas Lights” tree lighting show, you can watch Disney royal couples come together onstage for dancing, festive songs, and a merry good time in this all-new interactive Christmas light show, which culminates with dazzling projections on Sleeping Beauty Castle.

As Santa makes his way on up, the anticipation grows!

Of course, everything is lit up by these two oversized electrical plugs. (Who needs surge protectors when you’ve got magic?)

Once the tree is lit, the dazzling spectacular truly begins! You can watch the full In the new “Mickey’s Magical Christmas Lights” show in the video below. (Make sure your ad blocker is disabled, as this is an embedded video.)

In true elegant fashion, all of Town Square and Main Street are decked out in frosty white illuminated pines, character snowmen, and garland-covered gazebos.

From the snowy streets of Disneyland Paris, to the exuberant warmth of Walt Disney World, all of us at WDWNT would like to wish a very happy holidays to all of our readers.
