Celebrity guests from Ireland and the UK joined the Disneyland Paris 30th Anniversary celebrations this weekend, including McFly’s Tom Fletcher and his wife, actor and author Giovanna Fletcher; TV presenter Vogue Williams and her husband Spencer Matthews; and musician Aston Merrygold with his fiancé Sarah Louise Richards.
The guests were amongst the first to experience this new era of Disneyland Paris, with new decors, costumes and show all launching today. This includes the brand new ‘Dream…and Shine Brighter!’ daytime show created for the 30th Anniversary. It is performed every day by more than 30 Disney Characters decked out in new iridescent costumes.
New attractions include the resort’s first-ever aerial drone show, featuring 200 synchronised drones forming a sparkling figure 30ft in the sky above Sleeping Beauty Castle.
Tom Fletcher and his wife Giovanna Fletcher, enjoyed the weekend with their three children, Buzz (7), Buddy (6) and Max (3). Giovanna said: “The 30th Anniversary weekend at Disneyland Paris has been amazing. There’s been so much to do and so many new things to see. There is so much magic, and it feels like such a fitting celebration.”
Vogue Williams and her husband Spencer Matthews had one of their very first dates at Disneyland Paris 5 years ago to the day. This time they’ve brought their two children. Spencer said: It’s just so nice to come here now as a family. We watch lots of Disney films together, so I think for our kids it’s just a fun realization that the characters are real.”
Vogue added: “I think because we work a lot when we’re at home, to come away to Disneyland Paris and just spend two or three days just as a family doing everything together the whole time is amazing”
Aston Merrygold and his fiancé Sarah Louise Richards joined in the Disneyland Paris 30th Anniversary celebrations with their two children Grayson (4) and Macaulay (1). Aston said: “For me, Disneyland Paris… is all about the family appeal. Every single person, regardless of if you are 1 or 91, there is something for everyone. As soon as you walk through the front gates, it’s literally like the magic starts to happen.”
For 30 years, Disneyland Paris has continued to bring stories and characters from Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars franchises to life.
Since the opening of Disneyland Paris on 12 April 1992, the resort has hosted more than 375 million visits and is Europe’s top tourist destination.
