The breathtaking nighttime show, which originally debuted in 2012, offers an incredible burst of colors and light using state-of-the-art technology, dazzling projections, spectacular lasers and fountains, and sensational pyrotechnic effects that genuinely make Sleeping Beauty Castle come to life.

And this year’s return of “Disney Dreams!” will be even more exceptional, as the rooftops of Sleeping Beauty Castle’s towers have been decked out with cutting-edge LED technologypreviously used in the Halloween and Christmas seasonal nighttime spectaculars — to light up in sync with the show’s nostalgic soundtrack. An additional upgrade to the show’s technical equipment includes the installation of energy-efficient laser video projectors, which will make it possible to reduce energy use by 50% while delivering a breathtaking performance. “There’s nothing like it anywhere else in the world,” commented Ben Spalding, producer of Live Entertainment at Disneyland Paris.
