Le Théâtre du Château

Setting the stage for royalty...

Meet and greet Disney Characters and Princesses or take a seat to watch the daily parades with a stunning view of Le Château behind.

Of course, "once upon a time" that wasn't all you could do here. The grand stage was built to host large-scale shows, such as its original — and still sorely missed — Le Livre Magique de Mickey, in which a giant book on-stage would turn its pages to reveal new scenes.

After 1998's Winnie the Pooh and Friends, Too moved to Fantasy Festival Stage for a less prominent and better sheltered venue in 2006, the stage was resurfaced with wooden decking and destined to become merely a meet 'n' greet space from then on.

A brief rebirth came during the Christmas season of 2009, when a small Snow White "happening" came to the stage to tie in with a re-release of the film.

It took until 2015 for the stage to return to regular use, hosting shows for the Spring, Halloween and Christmas seasons. A new show, The Starlit Princess Waltz, is planned to be performed here during the 25th Anniversary celebration.

Trivia

  • This stage was at the heart of the park's Grand Opening festivities on the night of 11th April 1992, seeing performances from The Four Tops and Angela Lansbury (in her role as Mrs Potts from Beauty and the Beast) as stars from countries around the world presented the live television special from the raised platform at the rear.

Tips

  • Whilst the plentiful seating along the parade route here might be a wise choice for those with older or very young family members, do bear in mind that, unless you're sitting on the front row, the view will hardly be ideal and people in front may stand up once the parade approaches. If you want to film or capture some unobstructed photos, you might be best waiting elsewhere — but for a fun atmosphere and plenty of seats, the theatre is highly recommended.
  • In the Summer months, there is very little shade, and in Winter, little shelter from rain showers. However, if you arrive very early, the elevated platform at the back the seating area does offer a splendid view over the entire area, allowing you to appreciate the parades more fully from a distance. This is especially magical during nighttime electrical parades!
