The City of Light shone even brighter last month when Mickey Mouse lit up the Eiffel Tower in the iridescent colors of Disneyland Paris Resort’s 30th anniversary celebration.
The spectacular sound and light show was tailor-made to amaze 30 special guests who have strong ties to the resort, including Disneyland Paris actors who have worked at the resort since opening day, Disney VoluntEARS who give of their time to philanthropic activities, fans, and loyal guests.
The 30 VIPs began their evening at Disneyland Paris with dinner at Walt’s – an American restaurant followed by a screening of “Disney D-Light”, the park’s new 30th anniversary drone sequence that takes place before the late-night spectacular” Disney Illuminations”. They then boarded a bus which took them to a surprise destination: the Eiffel Tower.
Guests were personally greeted by Minnie Mouse, who escorted them to an exclusive viewing area for an incredible show with over 370 lights illuminating the Trocadero gardens in front of the monument and a magical finale where Mickey Mouse illuminated the Eiffel Tower in the colors of Disneyland Paris’ 30th anniversary, all accompanied by the station’s anniversary theme song, “Un monde qui s’illumine”.
“In 33 years of being in business, I’ve never seen such an amazing show,” said cast member and Disney VoluntEAR Binta, who was surprised to find this show “beyond what I’ve ever seen.” could have imagined”. Fellow cast member and Disney VoluntEAR Stephane said he was “overwhelmed with emotion when Mickey lit up the Eiffel Tower.”
For 30 years, Disneyland Paris has been creating magical shows year after year, but as you can see in the video below, by illuminating the Eiffel Tower in the colors of its 30th Anniversary, Europe’s leading tourist destination has even surpassed.
