On March 8th and 10th, 2022, Cast Members were invited to two exclusive “30th Anniversary: The Cast Celebration” evenings that took place at Disneyland Park.
To celebrate the recent launch of the 30th Anniversary celebrations at the resort, cast members were welcomed by Natacha Rafalski, President of Disneyland Paris; Daniel Delcourt, Executive Vice President of Operations; Guillaume Da Cunha, Vice President of Human Resources; among other members of the management team, as well as Carmen Lleo Badal and Quentin Rodrigues, the Disneyland Paris Ambassadors 2022-2023.
To commence the evening, Cast Members enjoyed a unique happening designed exclusively for them featuring their portraits projected for the first time ever on the iconic Sleeping Beauty Castle – accompanied by live music performed by talented singers from our very own Entertainment team!
“It was a lovely evening! It’s heart-warming to see so many people and this crazy atmosphere during the 30th Anniversary new show. Thank you all! I’m so proud to be part of this family since 21 years…” Ronny Clément, performer.
Following this unforgettable moment, the events continued with an exclusive nighttime version of the brand-new show “Dream… and Shine Brighter!”. Cast Members then also had the opportunity to enjoy various unique photo opportunities with Mickey and his Friends in their iridescent new costumes, a 30th Anniversary-dedicated dinner (including Mickey-shaped sandwiches, beignets and biscuits!), discover the new Merchandise products and ride some of the most popular attractions.
Finally, to close the evenings, Cast Members were able to enjoy a private showing of the beloved nighttime show “Disney Illuminations” accompanied by the all-new sequence of magic “Disney D-Light” – combining video projections, illuminated water jets, lighting effects, mist, lasers and even a drone display in the sky!
“Superb entertainment and a highly mobilized team to thank all the Cast Members for their involvement and their daily work. The best event of the last few years!” said Ema Fenaille, Cast Member at Sir Mickey’s Boutique.
