Officially, Disneyland Paris describes their character interactions as:

“During the initial reopening phase, many Disney, Pixar, Star Wars Characters or Marvel Super Heroes will appear in the Parks and offer guests memorable photo opportunities. From unexpected appearances to new Selfie Spots, there’s never been a better time to see beloved Characters. Close interactions, including hugs, will be temporarily suspended.”

For the Halloween season, Disneyland Paris has added this incredibly cool Villains selfie spot for Guests to enjoy. Twitter user @zO9gilkf0Mt6oXx shared a nearly 5-minute video of the new Disney Parks character meet-and-greet.

The video showcases an amazing experience for Disney Villains fans. Part show, part character meet, this new Villains selfie spot features eight characters who perform and preen for Guests’ cameras.

The first part of the Disneyland Villains experience includes Jafar (Aladdin), Judge Claude Frollo (The Hunchback of Notre Dame), Gaston (Beauty and the Beast), and Cruella DeVil (101 Dalmations).

Some of these are incredibly rare characters to see in U.S. Disney Parks, making this experience even more fun for those who are used to visiting Disneyland Resort in California and Disney World Resort in Florida.
