Disneyland Paris has premiered the new interactive show Disney Junior Dream Factory. This is the resort’s first new show of the year and is located inside Walt Disney Studios Park. We just missed this during our trip (which we returned from this past week).
From Disneyland Paris:
Ideal for families with young children, Disney Junior Dream Factory is an interactive 20-minute show located in the brand-new “Studio D” theatre at Walt Disney Studios Park on a new state-of-the-art stage. Little ones can dream with their favorite heroes from popular Disney Junior franchises, as families join together to make dreams come true, singing and enjoying memorable musical moments.
The show features beloved characters such as Mickey, Minnie and Timon, as well as Disney Junior’s rising stars Vampirina and Fancy Nancy Clancy, joined by the Dream Factory crew. Just as they are about to reveal how dreams are made, the factory stops working – but Mickey, Minnie and the dream-making experts can help save the day!
With plenty of catchy tunes, they invite the audience to work together and show everyone that you can “dare to believe in your dreams and they will come true,” helping to make the dream machine work by singing, swaying and having fun. Now more than ever it’s time to dream, and Disney Junior Dream Factory will help guests do just that!
To create this show, Director Paul Chychota was inspired by the storytelling, music and locations from Disney Junior’s hit TV shows Vampirina, Fancy Nancy Clancy and The Lion King Guard.
“The biggest challenge in creating the show was to make sure it was relevant to both younger children and their parents. Our message had to be simple enough for children to understand and sophisticated enough for adults. The show was created and designed so that everyone feels welcomed in the Disney Junior Dream Factory!”
Presented with French Sign Language Interpretation
To make sure as many guests as possible can enjoy the show together, Disney Junior Dream Factory will be presented every weekend* with actors specializing in “chansigne” – a form of artistic expression in French sign language – to immerse all guests in the show’s delightful story.
