“Dream…and Shine Brighter!” Daytime Show

If you’ve been to a Disney park before then you KNOW just how magical daytime shows are and how essential they are to tick off your Disney checklist.

“ Dream…and Shine Brighter” is a brand new daytime show set to be performed several times a day in front of the Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland Park - which is even more beautiful than ever following its recent 12 month refurbishment!

Show Producer Astrid Gomez has said that the new daytime show is centred around three major themes: “Laugh Louder”, “Love” and “Dreams”. 

Laugh Louder because they want to share moments of joy and fun with park guests. Love between couples as well as a love of friends and family and Dreams - both the dreams we have when we’re sleeping and the dream to achieve our goals. 

From classic to contemporary, the new show will feature 33 Disney characters (should’ve run with 30 considering it’s their 30th anniversary) BUT the more the merrier! Characters, dancers and colourful new floats will make their way down Main Street and will be accompanied by a unique soundtrack that includes the brand new 30th theme song “Un Monde Qui S’illumine” which translates to “A World That Lights Up”. 

And of course, we had the end with quite possibly the “super-est” announcement of them all, the opening of the long-awaited Avengers Campus!
