Disney Pirate or Princess: Make Your Choice was a combination parade and show at Disneyland Park (Paris), as part of its 25th anniversary celebration and a promotional event titled "Festival of Pirates and Princesses" back on March 30, 2018. Its closing date was March 17, 2019 just shy of 18 days for its one year continuation.
It involved more than 85 performers. Show director Christophe Leclercq described this interactive and unrestricted show as follows: “This is the first time we have ever immersed our guests so fully in an outdoor show. They decide on their team and they experience a different story depending on the choice they make.”
Guests could choose to join in the fun of a Buccaneer Bash or dance the waltz in the middle of the Royal Ball for an epic grand finale. It took place several times a day at the park, featuring many Disney characters and dozens of colorful performers. Guests can choose a different side each time for a unique experience celebrating these two worlds like never before.
The two worlds merged several times a day. Setting off from opposite ends of the Parade route, both the Pirates float and Disney Princesses float stopped halfway and immersed guests in a musical celebration. Then, the floats headed to Central Plaza where they came together for a spectacle of guest interaction.
On the Princesses float, guests could see the Princess heroes, like Cinderella and Belle. Guests could also see more recent favorites, like Rapunzel. Christophe said, “There will be nine Disney Princesses in total, as well as Moana—and they will be joined by none other than Mickey Mouse!” They will be surrounded by a troupe of dancers in costumes bursting with flowers and other natural sculptures and will be celebrating the Fantasyland world, where dreams come true.
