Exclusive Inaugural FanDaze Party – June 2, 2018
You may be asking, what is FanDaze? Well, it is the newest character event party from Disney Studios in Paris and I certainly hope that it finds its way to the US. This was a character-centric event and you can experience this amazing event for 4 magical hours in a closed park if you are able to get a ticket. This year was the very first inaugural event but I am sure this will become an annual event. I am already planning my return.
Special FanDaze Parades/Show
Dance You Duck Tales Parade: See you friends from Duckburg parade through the streets and dance. What a fun parade. This was really a big favorite of mine.
Max-LIVE: Gettin’ Goofy With it: We all know Max, he just wants to Stand Out! Dressed as Powerline, he does just that. He is met with a bunch of his Disney friends including joining Panchito and Jose as the substitute third Caballero.
FanDaze Street Party Parade: All FanDaze Characters parade through the park. Catch who you missed. This was one of the best parades I have ever seen.
Jumba & Pleakley’s Mission: Stitch! A unique experience for Disney FanDaze as Stitch Live! presented by Jumba and Pleakley
