Disneyland Paris kicked off their Halloween season on October 1st, 2021 and it will run through November 7th. Instead of a Halloween parade, there are several cavalcades for guests to enjoy. Halloween time is the season we have visited Disneyland Paris the most – 4 or 5 years now. We are scheduled to visit for the holiday season this year, but friends of ours – the Disney Goofballs – offered us videos of the Halloween cavalcades to share with our audience. Davey and Jordy visit Disneyland Paris regularly from the Netherlands and update their YouTube channel with new videos each visit. Here is a look at each cavalcade!
Minnie’s Halloween Cavalcade includes Minnie, Clarabelle Cow and Horace Horsecollar. The song here is the extremely popular and catchy “Vive La Vie” – a harvest song to match the harvest float. I always love this song.
Next is Mickey’s Illusion Manor Cavalcade. This fantastically themed float debuted in Mickey’s Halloween Celebration Parade in 2018. During the full parade, it includes Mickey with three different costume changes; the Phantom and Melanie Ravenswood; and Huey, Duey and Louie. Pluto is a gargoyle. Mickey during the cavalcade is here in one costume and Scrooge McDuck is below him. Chip and Dale are at the back of the float. “Are You Brave Enough” is a song that debuted in 2019 and quickly became a fan favorite. Disneyland Paris has great overall music and that was another hit.
Maleficent breathing fire is the last of the Halloween cavalcades. You can see Sleeping Beauty Castle behind the dragon as the castle is under refurbishment. The scrim is slowly coming down to reveal the finished work. And I love the Halloween garland. We were there the year it was introduced and it’s so festive.
Thank you to the Disney Goofballs Davey and Jordy and check out their YouTube channel! We were in Disneyland Paris in June and I’m looking forward to the holiday season but I do miss the beautiful fall of Paris and Disneyland Paris.
