Mickey’s Magical Party was a year-long celebration at Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park that started on 4 April 2009. It succeeded the 15th Anniversary Celebration which had been running in Disneyland Park since 1 April 2007.
Disneyland Paris made big investments for this celebration. A brand new stage (with 4 connecting satellite stages) was build on Central Plaza. The stage was intended to be permanent, but was eventually removed in 2011 for the then in development Disney Dreams show.
On Main Street, U.S.A. the (somewhat) classy 15th Anniversary banners were replaced by less tasteful Mickey’s Magical Party banners. But perhaps the most controversial move by Disneyland Paris Entertainment was the large 3D plaque with the fab 5 on the front balcony of Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant. And to make it even worse, the beautiful golden spire toppers were replaced by cheap looking Mickey heads. The Tinker Bell on the top spire was kept from the 15th Anniversary decorations and hung up there completely out of place. Not long after Mickey’s Magical Party ended, the castle went into an extensive refurbishment that brought all the original spires back.
Today there are 2 big holes on each side of the big flower window on the front of the castle. These are the result of the Fab 5 plaque, but sadly have never been fixed.
