Extinct Attractions – Snow White: Happily Ever After

Welcome to vanished attractions. This week, return to another attraction of the Disneyland Paris resort since the resort has just celebrated its 30th anniversary.

Disneyland Paris celebrated its 30th anniversary on Tuesday, showing that even parks that got off to a rocky start can turn the tide and become one of the busiest parks in the world and generally known as one of the most beautiful parks in the world. world theme. Personally, I loved my time there when I visited a few years ago and look forward to returning in a few years when Walt Disney Studios Park completes its multi-year redesign, Stage 1 (Avengers Campus ) finally being completed this year .

Today’s attraction had no major significance in the grand scheme of the park, but it was a show on perhaps the most significant feature film in the history of The Walt Disney Company, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs celebrates its eighty-fifth anniversary this year and still stands out today as one of the greatest achievements in the history of cinema. No one had ever seen anything like it and even looking at it today is like “Wow, how did they do that so many years ago?” With that in mind, it’s no wonder that a Snow White-themed attraction has popped up at every Disney resort around the world except Hong Kong Disneyland (although they still have a Snow White grotto -Snow).

Disneyland Paris already had a version of the chilling adventures of Snow White for guests to enjoy whenever they wanted to stimulate their senses of fear. But after seventeen years of this attraction representing the film, the powers that be at Disneyland Paris have decided to add a new show to the Théâtre du Château, once the home of Winnie the Pooh and his friends too.

I love the location of the castle theatre, just tucked away next to the castle in a way that doesn’t take away from the beauty of the castle, especially with the beauty of the Sleeping Beauty castle in France. With that in mind, a spot right next to her friend Princess Aurora was perfect for a Snow White show, especially a 2009 opening titled Snow White: Happily Ever After. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find exactly when the attraction opened, but the attraction got a facelift in December, just in time for the holiday rush. The show added a scene with the evil witch in full “witch” attire to help tie the show together and add some history.

One important thing to note about this show is that it was designed specifically as a brief mashup of key scenes from the film. We had already seen a life-size spectacle of Snow White in Disneyland in the mid-2000s, so I like this change of approach for the Disneyland Paris version (although it was almost certainly done for the sake of economy).

The show was a cute little show that used France’s favorite show technique with Fringlish. Generally, the dwarfs sang in English, while Snow White sang in French, and to be honest, there was really no dialogue in the series, the focus being on listening to those key songs from the movie. . Almost every song was covered, a pretty impressive feat in just eleven minutes of show time.

Other than that, there really isn’t much else to say about the show. It was a nice little diversion for guests who wanted to get away from some of the larger crowds in the middle of a busy Christmas season. Snow White fans had all the key moments they could want, and the Prince came at the end to complete his heroic act of kissing Snow White. It seems the attraction was always intended to use the costumes lying around as there was very little scenery and the show had already disappeared in 2010, being replaced by Mickey’s Treat in the Street.

Overall, Snow White: Happily Ever After was a cute little show that did exactly what it needed, entertaining guests and keeping them away from more populated areas.
