An unforgettable return into the heart of magic!
I had the chance to win a contest organised by Disneyland Paris on the Facebook group of the annual passes, on the occasion of the reopening days for the annual passes!
The course of the day
In total we were 5 winners from different nationalities.
The day started at 8:30 am in the parking lot of the Disneyland Hotel where we were meeting. We then had the honour to be the very first to experience the magic back in the Disneyland park !
Throughout the day, we were followed by the teams from Disneyland Paris as well as a film crew.
These filmed images were used to illustrate videos present on the various social media channels of Disneyland Paris.
The characters hunt
We’ve been invited to do a characters hunt!
Along the way we were also able to rediscover the attractions with VIP access! After each experience, we were questioned about our feelings…
Meeting the characters while keeping a safe distance is not at all annoying.
It also enabled us to meet characters that we are not used to seeing at all. During the different encounters, the characters also interact with us much more because contact is not possible.
A great lunch
At lunch time, we had the chance to test the new post-COVID experience of the Lucky Nugget at a lunch show that was gifted to us. I invite you to read the detailed summary of this experience on the dedicated article
A ton of gifts
Each of the winners went home with their arms full of gifts and received:
- an entry for a companion of their choice
- a 90 year Mickey Mouse statuette
- a 90 year Mickey and Minnie figure
- a set of 2 Paris gourmand mugs
- a Mickey Mouse plush
- an exclusive Disneyland Paris tote bag
- a little Mickey or Minnie clip
This wonderful gift allowed us to spend a whole day with the Cast Members who are so numerous every day to feed the magic of Disney.
Let’s not forget that each of us, whether we are a simple visitor or a cast member, contributes to bringing the magic to life!
It was also the opportunity to meet great people with whom we had the chance to spend a day !
To conclude, here is one of the “souvenir” videos made by the Disneyland Paris film crew during this day:
