Walt Disney Studios Park

Get ready to jazz it! The swinging tunes and fun beats is returning to Disneyland Paris this June with Disney Loves Jazz 2019. Off the bat of a very successful inaugural party last September, guests will once again get to dance the night away to a flurry of unique tunes and Disney classics in a way only jazz can offer you.

Much like last year’s event, Disney Loves Jazz is a special event open to anyone with a valid ticket for the event. From 8pm the party will get started for you discover the fun music performances, meet with Disney characters, jump on some attractions or simply soak up the atmosphere for 6 whole hours.

A full evening to the tune of jazz

Get ready for a night of fun and dancing all to the soundtrack of the smooth waves of jazz. Easily one of the most recognisable and iconic music genres in the world, Walt Disney Studios Park will once again play host to a variety of jazz performances all through the park.

Jazz isn’t just a one note genre, not at all. Be sure to explore through the park and you will be immersed into a wide variety of different jazz types and funks. New Orleans style, Saint-Germain jazz and gypse jazz are just some of the unique versions and arrangements you will hear throughout the evening in Disneyland Paris’ second gate.

The true main event of the night, the Jazz Loves Disney concert is a true celebration of the unique marriage between classic Disney songs and the creative swings jazz brings to the table for one of the liveliest, upbeat and fun events you can witness at Disneyland Paris!

For the 2019 edition of this atmospheric concert some returning faces and star names from the world of jazz are in the line up for what promises to be a great show. The magnificent China Moses and Hugh Coltman from last year’s concert are back again with Thomas Dutronc, Ayo, Anne Sila and Camélia Jordana making their Disney Loves Jazz debuts at the performance.

Disney Loves Jazz Tickets – Know before you buy

Disney Loves Jazz Armband

Where last year’s Disney Loves Jazz event segregated tickets between those looking to attend the main concert and those not, this year everyone will have opportunity to experience the Jazz Loves Disney Concert as entry to the Moteurs… Action venue is included in all ticket types.

With two performances of the same concert this year – 8:15pm and 10:30pm respectively – tickets are separated depending on which concert time you want.

New for this year’s event as well is the Disney Loves Jazz Plus ticket. For an added premium, guests with this ticket can enter and enjoy Walt Disney Studios Park from 4pm without a valid park ticket. Think of it as a standard jazz ticket, but with a 1 day, non-hopper park ticket thrown in.

UPDATE: It has been confirmed that instead of running two concerts during the night, these will not just be one concert at 9:30pm. Two different ticket types are still available however, Standard and Plus.

Disney Loves Jazz 2019 tickets and pricing

  • Disney Loves Jazz Standard ticket (9:30pm concert) – £69.48 / €79.00
  • Disney Loves Jazz Plus ticket (9:30pm concert) – £87.07 / €99.00

Tickets can be purchased – while still available – from the official Disneyland Paris website.

Of course, Disney Loves Jazz is nothing without the music itself. And what better jazz music to listen to than Disney jazz music!

Before your evening I certainly recommend you check out the two Jazz Loves Disney albums from recent years, especially if you are a newcomer to the genre. In the two compilations you will a wide list of classic Disney hits performed in an unique way you likely have never heard before.

Indeed, those returning from last year for a jazz encore may recognise many of the albums’ songs from 2018’s Disney Loves Jazz concert. Though a tracklist will unlikely be released, it’s far more likely than not we can expect more hits to appear in this year’s concerts.
