Updated 23rd August, 2021
Princess Celebration Soft Launch from the 18th August
Disneyland Paris are currently performing some of the cavalcades and selfie spots as part of a soft launch. This gave us a chance to gather all the information and share it with you before the start of this special event!
Princess Character Selfie Spots
One major change this celebration is going to bring to the Park is who you get to see waving good morning and goodnight from the Main Street Station. Since the parks reopening you have been able to wave good morning to Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, Chip and Dale whilst only Mickey and Minnie wave goodnight.
With the Princess Celebration this will be changed, instead you’ll see Aurora, Tiana, Rapunzel, Ariel and Belle in the morning and at night. You’ll be lucky enough to see 5 Princesses in one go!
Princess Selfie Spot Locations
They’ll also be specific Princess Selfie Spots and photo locations around Disneyland Park and the Walt Disney Studios Park. You’ll be able to take a selfie with the Disney Princesses in the following locations!
