Find Topsy Turvy Fun on April Fools’ Day at Disneyland Park
by Michael Ramirez, Editorial Content Director, Disneyland Resort
Did you know that April Fools’ Day was not the only day when silly things could happen? In the Gothic, Old-World setting of Disney’s animated film “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” the Feast of Fools was a satirical French celebration on January 1 that parodied low and high officials switching roles for the day and other frivolous activities.
In honor of celebrating our favorite fool, Clopin, turn the wheel at the music box and watch as the scenery comes to life and showcases the Feast of Fools scene from the movie. A music box rendition of the popular song “Topsy Turvy” plays as Clopin dances and Quasimodo views longingly from the Notre Dame Cathedral’s bell tower.
