Festival of Pirates and Princesses returns to Disneyland Paris in 2019

It’s sure to be an adventure at Disneyland Paris this winter as guests choose their side – Pirates or Princesses! With the return of Festival of Pirates and Princesses, guests can sing, dance and meet with their favorite Disney pirates and princesses like no other moment in the year. 

For even more fun, guests can dress up, have their faces painted and create their very own adventure story with family and friends to make memories that will last a lifetime, exploring everything that Disneyland Paris has to offer!


During this daily interactive show, Disney Pirates led by Minnie Mouse will shove off at the top of the tide to sail down Main Street U.S.A. and Central Plaza. With an acrobatic extravaganza blasting across the bow, Minnie’s pirate ship will come about to face off and meet Mickey Mouse accompanied by a Disney Princess Regalia in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle. Guests can choose to join in the fun of a Buccaneer Bash or dance the waltz in the middle of the Royal Ball for an epic grand finale.

Disney Pirate or Princess: Make Your Choice! will take place several times a day at Disneyland Paris, featuring many favorite Disney characters and dozens of colorful performers. Guests can choose a different side each time for a unique experience celebrating these two worlds like never before.



Kids of all ages can become real pirates in Hoist the Flags, Mateys! They’ll encounter the one-and-only Jack Sparrow on the deck of the Pirate Galleon in Adventureland, where Jack is looking for a new crew for his next quest. These fun-filled recruitment sessions will quickly turn into an interactive experience full of laughs with the most legendary pirate of the Caribbean.


Every day will be wonderfully royal as Disney characters like Sofia the First, Elena of Avalor and many regal performers grace Disneyland Paris with an enchanting Princess Promenade. Lucky guests might spot a very special Disney Princess and her royal entourage!

This show will begin 23 January 2019.
