With the success of Swing into Spring, Disneyland Paris is offering up another seasonal specialty in ‘Main Street USA Welcomes Summertime,’ taking place from July-August. Though markedly smaller in scale than it’s predecessor, DLP’s newest addition is a delightful reason to celebrate the season.
If you’ve seen Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Trolley Show, then this one will look familiar – minus the actual trolley. The Victorians of Main Street gather together for a cheery song and dance number with great costumes, excellent choreography and an even better soundtrack. Tunes include “In The Good Old Summertime,” “The Trolley Song” and of course, “I’m Walking Right Down the Middle of Main Street U.S.A.” And really, any show that includes a favorite song from the 1980′s/1990′s ‘Disney Sing Along Songs,’ is getting an A+ in my book. Who are we kidding?
After the 5 minute performance, the Victorians greet guests throughout Town Square and Main Street until their next show, roughly every 15 minutes or so in the afternoons.
Disneyland Paris is really making an effort to include more seasonal entertainment throughout its’ parks and that’s a great thing. If you don’t feel like you’ve made it to “the heartbeat of a holiday” after this program, grab yourself some Mickey ears and go out and try again. It’s truly entertaining and a small slice of what makes the Disney Difference.
