Mickey Just Lit Up The Eiffel Tower and it Might Make You Cry

We’re not crying…you’re crying! Disneyland Paris just released a video of Mickey putting on a once-in-a-lifetime show in front of the Eiffel Tower and we have SERIOUS goosebumps.

Disneyland Paris is celebrating 30 years this year (lots of big birthdays this year between this and Walt Disney World celebrating 50) and Mickey is pulling out all the bells and whistles for the big 3-0!

Disneyland Paris has been having all kinds of special shows, attractions, merchandise, and character outfits for celebrating this milestone. There is even a temporary champagne cart on Main Street, U.S.A. that sells champagne by the glass in a Disneyland Paris 30th anniversary souvenir champagne flute, for a reasonable €15 for the champagne and the glass.

There have been special collectible 30-anniversary ears, firework shows featuring drones that create a massive lit-up “30” against the night sky, and exclusive limited-time foods and beverages. But Mickey just blew us all away with his latest surprise.

30 Park Guests were lucky enough to be selected and whisked away from Disneyland Paris on a special Disneyland bus and transported to central Paris where they had an exclusive private show in front of the Eiffel Tower.

“An incredible moment for an incredible anniversary! Mickey Mouse lights up the Eiffel Tower to celebrate our 30th Anniversary. Take a look at the unique moment that was a true surprise for 30 guests with a strong link to the resort.”

In the video, we can see Mickey and Minnie gathering their guests for an incredible nighttime show like never before. Mickey grooves and bops to one of Disneyland Paris’ French/English songs and then the lights start appearing. By the end of the performance the Eiffel Tower is lit from top to bottom in the Disneyland Paris 30th Anniversary colors (that are currently plastered all over Paris on signs and billboards to spread the word about 30 years) in a glittering display of true Disney Magic.

What a moment for those 30 lucky Guests! All we can say is we hope Remy, Ratatoullie (2007), wasn’t too jealous of Mickey tonight!
