For everyone who lives Star Wars, in a galaxy not so far, far away...
Forty years after Luke Skywalker and an unforgettable cast of heroes, heroines and highly-strung droids revolutionised cinema, Disneyland Paris launched a galactic new celebration - unique in the whole of Europe. And now it's back.
An exclusive nighttime spectacular leads the events, which unusually take over Walt Disney Studios Park rather than Disneyland Paris' original park.
Star Wars: A Galactic Celebration features an epic battle and memorable moments from the legendary movies brought to life with projections, special effects and even live characters at the heart of the park, turning the impressive Hollywood Tower Hotel into a projection surface for flying X-Wings, TIE fighters and more.
The chance to see such a large number of Star Wars characters coming to life is a unique Season of the Force selling point, many of them only rarely seen at Disneyland Paris and some never seen here before at all.
Each day, the new stage celebration Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away takes place on a new outdoor stage, bringing together an incredible roster of characters from both the "dark side" and the light. In between, the First Order March sees Captain Phasma rule over the park with a procession of Stormtroopers, who also make sporadic visits throughout the day. Selfie with a Stormtrooper anyone?
If you grew up wielding a lightsaber to the original trilogy, now it's time to pass on that unique feeling of the force to your next generation — or just relive it for yourself.
You won't find an experience like it this side of Tatooine — or North America. At long last, the force is awakening not so far, far away.
Use the force - visit the place where Star Wars lives
Plan your Disneyland Paris trip to live the brand new Season of the Force for yourself, a new Star Wars experience unique in the whole of Europe.
Book your adventure to the place where Star Wars lives now to choose from the best availability before the New Year rush.
Nighttime spectacular at Walt Disney Studios Park
Star Wars: A Galactic Celebration
When darkness falls, the park lights up in a spectacular show of Star Wars colours, lights, sounds and special effects!
For the first time in its history last year, Walt Disney Studios Park gained a daily nighttime spectacular. Using the familiar projection-mapping techniques of the neighbouring Disney Dreams! and taking cues from a similar nighttime show in Florida, this Galactic Celebration was specially designed for Disneyland Paris.
No less than 16 high definition projectors use the huge 2,500m² surface of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror as a canvas to bring key moments from the saga to life. As X-Wing and TIE starfighters swoop past, you're plunged into the middle of an epic Star Wars battle scene. AT-ACT and U-Wings from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story are featured and Disneyland Paris has even confirmed new visuals will even reference the brand new movie instalment, Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
More unusually for a nighttime projection show, the 2017 event featured a number of live characters including Chewbacca, R2-D2, Kylo Ren and Darth Vader.
Happening only during Season of the Force, this unique, limited-time event is the absolute highlight of the season.
Celebrated Star Wars characters on stage
Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away
Relive some of the greatest moments from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away for real.
On a new outdoor stage at the heart of Walt Disney Studios Park, a great cast of Star Wars characters come together like never before at Disneyland Paris.
Based on an event of the same name at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida, classic clips are interspersed with brief appearances from the likes of C-3PO, R2-D2, Darth Maul, Chewbacca, Captain Phasma, Kylo Ren and of course Darth Vader.
Don't expect any kind of storyline worthy of the space opera, but do soak in the chance to feel that this galaxy of stories is alive in front of you.
Daily procession at Walt Disney Studios Park
First Order March
A force of Stormtroopers are led into the park at the command of Captain Phasma.
Clad in a distinctive armour of salvaged chromium, Captain Phasma commands the First Order's legions of stormtroopers in their battle against the New Republic.
Certainly one the more unusual Disney processions, the battalion of Stormtroopers march into the park "on the authority of General Hux", eventually lining up around the stage to signal the start of Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away.
NEW! Upgraded and enhanced new attraction
Star Tours: The Adventures Continue
Board your Starspeeder 1000 and fly to a whole new galaxy of Star Wars locations.
Twenty five years after setting up their Discoveryland astroport, this classic simulator ride has received the impressive "Star Tours 2" upgrade, bringing both cutting-edge technology and massively improved re-rideability.
Rather than always heading for the Moon of Endor, destinations are now randomised, which each departure featuring several different scenes from a lengthy playlist — including Jakku and the latest Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
With thirteen segments of film (and programmed simulator movements), there are up to 96 different ride combinations. You won't just ride it once!
Digital, 3D projection and improved lighting and décor throughout the attraction all create a vastly superior experience. Is it a whole new attraction or just an upgrade? Even if you're familiar with the original, it really feels brand new.
NEW! Space Mountain blasts you into a Star Wars thrill ride
Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain
Join the Rebel Alliance on a mission against the Galactic Empire in the most thrilling Star Wars ride in the galaxy.
Disneyland Paris opened Space Mountain: De la Terre à la Lune in 1995 with the greatest storyline of all its worldwide cousins. But as of 2017, the mighty Columbiad Cannon resting on the side of the mountain doesn't blasting us into a Jules Verne fantasy but a galaxy far, far away.
While Star Tours remains relatively family-friendly, this is a full-scale thrill ride with TIE fighters and X-wings thundering past as you twist, turn and loop upside down through a genuinely hair-raising Death Star battle.
