Each group or character will hold a candle that counts towards the 15 years being celebrated, and some brand new official visuals (for use as Travel Operator brochure covers) have just been released featuring these impressive character designs.

Disneyland Resort Paris promises “A celebratory atmosphere, with castle & park specially decorated for the 15th anniversary year”. More information has also now surfaced about the functionality of these decorations. Official documents describe how guests will be able to “Enjoy the beauty of a captivating one-of-a-kind anniversary ceremony every night at Sleeping Beauty’s Castle”.

Since the characters are holding candles, some kind of birthday blowing-out-the-candles ceremony seems very likely, along the same lines as The Enchanted Fairytale Ceremony’s castle and tree light-up at Christmas.
