  • News DLP cancels Disney's Fantillusion during the Christmas Season

    The Disney's Fantillusion Parade last performance will take place on September 2, 2012.

    This parade will be replaced by nothing, in order to save money.

    Really sad - but considering what it costs to run this vs. a pre-programmed show, it's no surprise.
    Since they neve really presented the parade the way it was intended, I'm not that sad that it's on hiatus for Christmas. Is it at least being shown this Summer?

      Major dislike! It really gave a special touch to the cold nights in the winter

          In an apparent cost cutting measure, I am cancelling my Christmas trip to DLP this year. I had considered an AP for my family during our last year living in Europe, but I cancelled that, too.

            Last year, the only nighttime Christmas entertainment was the Fantillusion Parade. Now it's going to be Disney Dreams (which is better than Fantillusion). This Christmas, Disneyland Park will have a whole new Christmas tree! I think that you still can have a great time at Christmas in Disneyland Paris.

            I think they'd better cancel Disney Magic on Parade than Disney's Fantillusion Parade for Christmas.

              What about the lighting shows on Main St.

                  When I read French Forums, they don't seem to be bothered by this mesure and they even say Disneyland Paris has opened so many rides those last years. They're obviously mad.

                      People still praise Toy Story Playland over at the DLP and WDS fansites. To me it semes that many of those who see DLP as their "home" park have lower expectations on a Disneyland than the fans of any of the other resorts.

                      ...yes people... there is a fan site for the WDS park, the worst Disney park park ever. That alone is evidence of how people in different regions look at a brand.

                          I will continue to hope that maybe they decide to put it back on the schedule. But I will definitely now stop my plans for heading there this Xmas season. That was a big draw for me, as I've never seen the parade before. Looks like DLP is out this year for me.

                              This is such a shame, I love Fantillusion especially at Christmas I think it gives a really Christmasy feel with all the twinkling lights! But I am still holding out hope it might run this Christmas season.

                                Crazy thought but wonder if there could there be a bigger reason why Fantillusion is being canceled? Maybe to send it to WDW in exchange for MSEP? Probably not likely but considering the uncertainty of what will happen to MSEP after its run... Yes Spectro has been said to be coming back But wonder if WDW decided to mix Spectro and Fantillusion together?

                                    That's good news, hopefully it's true. Disney should cancel the daytime parade instead of Fantillusion. In Winter it's getting dark very eary so they can show Dreams first and end the day with the parade.

                                      Disney's Fantillusion last performance will take place on September 2, 2012. Say goodbye to Fantillusion. This parade will be replaced by... nothing, in order to save money

                                      I hate Disneyland Paris's managers.

                                      This parade is rumored to come back in the expanded Walt Disney Studios Park, after its placemaking (in 2017 or later). But this is just a rumor, it's possible the parade never come back or that the parade goes to Shanghai Disney Resort.

                                        So no nighttime parade for Christmas season and the following years? To some degree I do understand the decision, since there is now Disney Dreams. EPCOT and DHS don't have nighttime parades, too, because they have nighttime shows. However Disneyland in Anaheim has both, Fantasmic and a parade or am I wrong on that?

                                        Friends of mine have just returned from DLP and they didn't care about the parade, because of Dreams and the fact they have seen the parade so many times in recent years. DLP needs a new nighttime parade.

                                        If Fantillusion should really come to SDL, I hope it will be the Tokyo version. I think it will be a perfect parade for SDL. It has lovely floats and a catchy music. I think the Chinese would like it.

                                        Which parks do have an illuminated nighttime parade and how are they called? Thank you!
