To kick-off the celebration, Disney has teamed up with The Pointe, Nakheel’s iconic waterfront destination on Palm Jumeirah, to host an enchanting weekend of Disney. From May 13 to 15, guests across the UAE are invited to experience an array of princess-themed festivities, including The Palm Fountains’ first dance to the Disney Princess Anthem, a new original song written exclusively for the Ultimate Princess Celebration.
The Anthem called, ‘Starting Now’ will join The Palm Fountain’s existing line-up of Disney hits such as Aladdin’s ‘A Whole New World’, Frozen’s ‘Let It Go’ and Mulan’s ‘Reflection’, which will play every hour from 7pm onwards. A special firework display will also accompany the Disney-themed fountain show on May 13 at 8pm.
But the fun doesn’t stop there! Fox Family Movies will be bringing the Ultimate Princess Celebration to the comfort of your home, with a month-long movie marathon, featuring your favorite Disney Princesses. The movies kicked-off this past weekend, with Aladdin and Tangled, and will be showing every Friday and Saturday at 6:00pm UAE (5:00pm KSA) until June 5th. Titles include The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s Beginning, The Princess and the Frog, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Pocahontas, and Mulan. Tune into Fox Family Movies for the fun, available on Etisalat and Du in the UAE, and Jawwy in Saudi Arabia.
