Disneyland Paris for a Minnie-break?
HEARD the one about the Finn who worked as one of the characters at Disneyland Paris and was asked if she spoke French?
I know the French are quackers but? Paula, as I’ll call her because that’s her name though she was known as Minnee in Pareeee, just shrugged her shoulders insouciantly as the kids came up to her. It pretty much did the job.
Not to put you off Disneyland Paris, of course. For a start it’s the closest Disney to us, and everybody, big kid and small, should visit the Magic Kingdom at least once in their lifetime.
The park has had 320million visits since it opened its doors in 1992, with of course many going back time and time again.
And it seems our appetite is still not sated with Disneyland Paris set to double visitor capacity, triple the number of hotel rooms and possibly build a third theme park by 2030.
So what will you be getting. Only the superstars... Marvel, Frozen and Star Wars, that’s who.
Of course there are no shortage of deals.
Click&Go has four nights at Disney’s Newport Bay Club, departing on May 24, room only, standard max 4, for two adults, two children, flying from Dublin from €929pp. visit www.clickandgo.com.
Disneyland Paris has a Spring/ Summer offer of up to 25% off hotel and park tickets plus free half board meals for arrivals from April 2 to November 6 if booked by February 11.
And if you book the above offer you will get one quick service breakfast voucher and one meal voucher per person per night (over 3 years old) that you can use for lunch or dinner at selected restaurants throughout Disneyland theme park.
Don’t worry if you don’t have any French, all Mickey, Minnie and Donald want after all is a hug. See www.disneylandparis.ie.
