Fantasy Festival Stage

Step in time!

Take a Jolly Holiday amidst the splendour of the British countryside to discover this beautiful festival pavillion frequently hosting live entertainments.

Opened with the park in 1992, this small theatre was originally one of the main entertainment venues of the park, hosting the popular C'est Magique character show for several seasons.

Though Le Noël de Mickey outlasted its original partner and went on to become the longest-running show in the park, the theatre saw a drought of productions in the early 2000s. This was eventually put to an end in 2006, when Winnie the Pooh and Friends, Too moved here from Le Théâtre du Château in a brand new adaptation. This was followed during Christmas Season of that same year by a special festive edition of the "silly old" bear's adventure.

  • The stage and its roofspace are actually housed not under the glass pavillion structure but in the building of Fantasyland Station behind. The theatre was a very late addition to the park's opening day attractions, with this space originally due to remain vacant until a tunnel under the railroad station was instated to lead to new developments beyond the berm. Today, the tunnel is used by cast and crew of the stage productions to reach their dressing rooms and offices backstage.
  • Originally, the ornate glass roof structure was the only shelter from the elements for the theatre's audience, since the venue was projected to only be used during the busier Summer months. Such was the popularity of the character-based shows presented and the need for more year-round capacity, however, the side walls and eventually back wall were built to fully enclose the space. The show control booth from this period remained in place, however — look closely and you can see that the walls have been added around it. The open glass roof was covered in later years to allow for better lighting effects inside.
  • The two bay window areas either side of the theatre's entrance actually have false walls, which can still be removed in the Summer months to give a more open, airy performance space.


  • The seats at this theatre are not tiered very steeply, so don't expect a clear view for all children or for photos and video recording. The seats are primarily split into three blocks. For a more guaranteed view, don't sit in the middle block but on the inner edge of the two outer (left and right) blocks, where you will have a clear view across the aisle to the stage.
