Aloha my wonderful merfolk!
We’re only about a week away now from the start of the 25th anniversary celebrations at Disneyland Paris. Who is excited? I know I am, even though I won’t be there for the birthday itself this year.
Disneyland Paris recently released a very small clip of the new night time show Disney Illuminations and I was beyond excited. Although Dreams holds a very special place in my heart and makes me cry every time, I am looking forward to this new show. So today, I thought I would give my first impressions of the new show.
This will be a shorter blog than some of the previous DLP25 posts as the video clip is only a couple of minutes long.
SPOILER ALERT: If you do not want to see any of this show before going to Disneyland Paris then please do not read this blog post. It includes a video of a test projection and my views on the scene itself. If you don’t mind seeing the first scene of the show then please, read on. You have been warned!
I love the speech at the beginning. Things like this that make you remember the magic of Disney and how even as an adult it can make you feel happy is amazing. It’s a wonderful feeling.
I also like that this show includes Mickey at the beginning. It feels right that for the 25th anniversary, quarter of a century, that Mickey is involved with this show.
This version of A Dream is a Wish is amazing. The beginning part actually reminds me of the Earth Month show they had before dreams back in April 2016. I saw that projection show in person and it was amazing.
The colours are beautiful and as always, the projection is fantastic. It amazes me how clever this is and how wonderful it looks. I can imagine accompanied with the fountains and fireworks, this show will be absolutely spectacular to see in person.
My next Disney trip is November this year, which is during the Christmas season. I’m hoping for the first year they have this version on and don’t introduce a Christmas version as I’d love to see this one first.
