Read on to find out some of our favourite special events happening at Disneyland® Paris this summer – plus a special deal to get the whole family there for £70 return.

Marvel Summer of Super Heroes – until 30th September

Suit up and join your favourite superheroes for a day of non-stop action this summer. Two new live action shows let the whole family immerse themselves into the Marvel universe.

The Power of the Epic Marvel: Super Heroes United combines electrifying special effects and all of your favourite live characters to the stage, including Iron Man, Captain America, Spider-Man and Black Widow, for an epic battle against Thanos.

For Avengers fans, Stark Expo presents: Energy for Tomorrow! sees the famous group take on the wicked prince Loki in a similarly breath-taking spectacle. If you’d rather boogie your way to victory, head to the Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Dance-Off to help save the gang from evil.

Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain – limited run

The classic thrills of Space Mountain take place in a galaxy far, far away this summer. Now, you can travel through the world of Star Wars as a member of the Rebel Alliance, fighting off TIE fighters and defeating the Star Destroyer for good. Kids and adults alike will love the exhilarating new experience as it places you right in the thick of the action. With this takeover event billed as a limited run, anyone hoping to put a stop to the Empire’s tyranny will have to join the Alliance fast.

The Starlit Princess Waltz – until 9th September

This summer, young princesses and princes can all attend a magical royal ball at the iconic Sleeping Beauty Castle.

The show, specially created for the park’s 25th anniversary, will transport the whole family into the world of classic Disney movies.
