“It’s been absolutely lovely. The kids have loved it and it’s just been a really magical weekend. A fantastic time.” – Abbey Crouch
Chelsea favourite Binky Felstead brought along her daughter India and enjoyed meeting characters such as Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck.
“I’m just in the best mood ever. I think it’s incredible, they’ve done it so well and all the characters are dressed up, all the dancers, all Christmas music playing the whole time, it’s been amazing. Really, really gets you in the [Christmas] spirit.” – Binky Felstead
Corrie star Helen and Celtic football player Scott, who got engaged together at Disneyland Paris six months ago, said that it brought back nice memories to be back in the park.
“I remember when I was last here I was 9 months pregnant, I literally could hardly walk around the park and my feet were literally massive. So at least now this time I feel, at least I can walk around the park and I don’t feel so big. But for us, it is really nice memories.” – Helen Flanagan
Model Georgia and Danny Jones of McFly experienced snow for the first time this year on Main Street, U.S.A. and commented that it got them into the festive mood.
Danny said: “It’s amazing. Do you know what, it’s got us in the spirit. We were walking down to the castle this morning and they were playing some Christmas songs and it was very special. And it’s very Christmassy, got us right in the mood.” Georgia added: “It did! It’s so festive and it’s just made us really excited for Christmas.”
Rounding off a memorable weekend, Swedish singer-songwriter Zara Larsson gave Mickey Mouse the treat of his life performing a pitch-perfect version of ‘Happy Birthday’ to him. The Lush Life hit maker who is currently riding high in the Official UK Singles Chart with Ruin My Life, described the experience of singing to Mickey as “fantastic”.
“I am so excited to be here at Disneyland Paris, because I’ve never been and I think this place in itself is magical. And to be a part of Mickey’s 90th birthday feels fantastic. Like many kids growing up, even my parents or probably even my Grandma, he’s been a part of my childhood so now I can be part of his special night and that feels great.” – Zara Larsson
