Disneyland Paris | News: New "Swing into Spring" season launches next week

In 2014, Disneyland Paris launches a new mini season called "Swing into Spring" where the park is overrun with around 100,000 extra flowers, extra entertainment and more fun than ever. The event will run from 5th April to 22nd June 2014. This is one of the most impressive new additions to the park we have seen in years with an incredible amount of new sights and sounds for guests. 

Inside Disneyland Park, you'll immediately see the Swing into Spring logo on Main Street station on the way in. In Town Square there are topiaries of Mary Poppins and Bert, as well as the Banks children. In the Town Square gazebo several times per day you can see the "Welcome to the Wondeful Season" show, where Victorian dancers provide a welcome to the park. This show takes place daily except Thursday and Friday and is be performed 6 times per day. The show will conclude with a meet and greet with performers. On Main Street the balconies will be decorated with flowers all the way along the street, and by Casey's Corner you'll find Rapunzel who is back I the park for her photo meet and greet opportunity. In Central Plaza, in front of the castle, you'll find our favourite topiaries which are simply beautiful. Here you'll see Bambi, Simba and Nala, the Aristocats, and a few of the 101 Dalmatians - all made out of flowers. 

The big show for the season takes place 5 times a day and as yet does not have an English title, in French it is "La Promenade du Printemps". It is a mega show happening simultaneously on Central Plaza and the Castle Stage comprising 125 performers. You'll see live music performers, Clarabelle Cow, Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy and many other characters. The Disney character train will also rock up with favourites on board, and three cars decorated especially for the occasion will be present too. If you're a fan of Mary Poppins you'll love the sound track, and might even get to see some flying kites. The show lasts 12 minutes and is intended to look like a flash mob. 

In the Disney Village there are topiaries, as well as advice and workshops relating to plants. 

Disney hotel guests can take part in horticulture tours with a focus on kids. Groups of about 15 people will be accompanied by Russel, from Up, and learn about all the plants at Disneyland. Tours will run 2 to 3 time a week at a small cost of €5 per person. 

The season is expected to become a regular yearly feature of the park, much like Halloween and Christmas, and work on the 2015 edition is already underway.
