Performing arts school group performing at Videopolis Theatre Disneyland Paris

Time to Shine May – Disneyland® Paris

Lead a pre-parade through the park and perform live on stage at Disneyland® Paris on this show-stopping performing arts trip - all under the beautiful Parisienne sun

Lead a pre-parade and perform at Disneyland® Paris this summer!

This is your chance to take centre stage and not only experience - but be part of - the magic of Disneyland® Paris!

On this magical trip, your performing arts group will have the opportunity to dance through the park in a procession preceding the world-famous Disney Stars on Parade; perform live for guests at one of the world’s most visited tourist attractions; learn from professional artists in your very own Disney Performing Arts workshop, and take a peek behind the curtain with a backstage tour of your performance venue. Groups will enjoy three days exploring both Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park—hopping back and forth as many times as they wish!

Why visit Disneyland Paris in Summer?

Our Time to Shine Summer performing arts trip in the May half term break takes full advantage of the beautiful weather.  With longer days and enchanting holiday atmosphere, your trip to Disneyland Paris in summer will be one to remember forever.

  • Warmer weather - an average of 19°C and a lower chance of rain on your parade!
  • Bigger audience - for the performances that you've worked so hard for, more people visit in the summer months so you'll be parading in front of thousands!
  • Longer opening hours - as the days are longer, so are the park hours.  Get more time on your favourite rides when you visit in summer

Highlights include:

  • 3 or 4 days Performing Arts Park passes for Walt Disney Studios Parks and Disneyland Park
  • Take part in the pre-parade through the park on Main Street, U.S.A.®, in front of thousands of Disneyland® Paris customers (subject to audition)
  • 20 minute exclusive live Performance in the Disneyland Park (subject to audition)
  • An exclusive Time to Shine t-shirt branded with your group's logo
