FOR FROZEN FANS
No doubt your children are crazy about Elsa, Anna and Olaf from Disney’s
Frozen, and with the sequel on its way, what better way to indulge their interest than with a weekend at Disneyland Paris.
The European HQ of the House of Mouse is at its glittering best in November and December. There are special seasonal activities across the two parks including performances by Elsa and co and dazzling fireworks, plus of course all those rides. There’s usually ice skating on offer on the rink outside the Hotel New York, and for some sightseeing and shopping you’re just half-an-hour by train from the French capital.
The low-down: Gloriously pink and fairy-tale pretty, the Victorian-inspired Disneyland Hotel has been voted one of the top French hotels for families and it’s right by the gates to the park. You’ll even get two extra hours in parts of the parks on some days. A luxury room with terrace and two double beds costs from Dh8,556 for two nights, with Disney Parks tickets and breakfast (disneylandparis.com). Return flights from Dubai to Paris cost from about Dh2,960 with Qatar Airways.
Parents beware: your kids are never going to want to leave the park once they see Elsa and co
