dark

hi everyone...thanks for all you lovely people helping me with my planning so far...you are a wealth of knowledge and i really appreciate it now i just love the park at dark and was wondering what time you think it would get dark in DLP at end of nov? also any idea what time dreams starts at and what time park closes weekdays in nov? also are there any other lighting up castle/tree ceremonies or is it just dreams? xo

it will be dark by 5pm at the end of November.
The park hours for November this year haven't been published yet, but last year midweek they were Studios close at 6pm, main park close at 7pm. So if its the same this year, Dreams will start at just after 7pm.

I don't think anyone knows what kinds of castle/tree lighting stuff will be going on for Christmas season yet.

Dreams lasts for around 20 minutes.
I'm pretty sure theres no Mickeys Winter Wonderland show this year, nothing going on in the Chapparal theatre at all.

Hang on I'll copy you a picture to show you the difference between 2010 and 2011

The main issue is because of Dreams no one knows how they are going to light up the Castle or if they are going to light it.

yes its only at Christmas - they have to put nets of hundreds of thousands of lights over the Castle to get the effect.

That is last year - credit goes to Disneyland Paris - comes from the Facebook page



This is how it looks at night atm - took this last week around 8.20 pm while waiting on Dreams



For the 15th it was lit up like this but they didn't run Wishes during the Christmas season



That one is coming from iNico on DCP

Thank you

Dreams is on every night until the end of March at least so you'll see it on as many days as you are there.

I think whatever they do to it will be wonderful as the castle is looking so beautiful since it was redone be it in day or at night

Last year they redid it from the ground up - it was covered in scaffolding for weeks

Here's some photos that I took in May when they took the scaffolding of the front/sides

It looks so beautiful and vibrant now, it was all grey before and unloved
