Archived Disneyland® Resort Paris News
A family of letters that make up the word "Disneyland" can be found in the Main Street U.S.A. a few times each day to meet and great guests!
Each letter has a unique symbol, colour, or detail matching some of Disney’s most famous characters. “Y” for instance is wearing the colours of Mickey Mouse while “L” is a red letter with white spots just like Minnie Mouse’s dress. The letters can be seen dancing and jumping in a routine on their way to Town Square. The letters get jumbled up as they make their way down the street forming all sorts of other words. Finally at the end, they correct themselves to form the word “Disneyland”.
This show will be fun and exciting. Children in particular will love it, as they can find the first letter of their name…then they can take a picture with the letter in front of the decorated 15th Anniversary castle!
