Your Guide to Mingling with the Disney Characters at Disneyland Paris
by Sheila Hendrick
Remember when you were growing up and you were hooked to the TV each Saturday morning, watching the cartoons, and hoping, wishing and dreaming that you could meet your Disney idols? You would have done anything in your power to make your dreams a reality and shake hands with Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy.
Now, maybe 20 years later, you are watching your own kids watch as if they are hypnotised by that same magic you were gripped by as a child. Nostalgia is powerful isn’t it?
Why not make their dreams a reality, and bring your kids to Disneyland Paris? Imagine the exhilaration in their little faces when they get a cuddle from their favourite Disney character!
There are so many opportunities to meet the characters at Disneyland Paris. So many, in fact, that the likelihood is that your kids will probably meet Mickey not once, but possibly two or three times!
Places to meet the Disney characters in Disneyland Paris
There are tonnes of places you can meet the Disney characters at Disneyland Paris. Here are some tips to make sure that you and the kids get to rub shoulders with Disney’s best!
1. Stay in the Disney-Themed Hotels
There are seven hotels that fall into this category; The Disneyland Hotel, Disney’s Hotel New York, Disney’s Newport Bay Club, Disney’s Sequoia Lodge, Disney’s Hotel Santa Fe, Disney’s Hotel Cheyenne, and Disney’s Davy Crockett Ranch.
Character Meet and Greet opportunities vary in frequency by hotel and chosen accommodation package. For example, in The Disneyland Hotel, Disney characters do a meet and greet as standard so hotel residences can start their day in true Disney fashion. The Sequoia Lodge offers a Meet and Greet with the Disney characters every morning at breakfast with their Golden Forest Rooms. *Please note that this service will only be available until October 2014.
Our experts can help you chose the right hotel aligned with your expectations.
2. Dining with the Characters
There are loads of opportunities to meet all the Disney characters (as well as a few princes and princesses) over breakfast, lunch or dinner. You can enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner with the Disney Characters at Café Mickey in the Disney Village. You can also take a trip to Auberge de Centrillon in the Disneyland Park and enjoy lunch with Disney Princes and Princesses. Finally, if it happens to be your little munchkin’s birthday, you can treat them to a birthday cake during any of the Disney Character meals mentioned above.
3. Meet the Characters at the Park
Eating with the characters is a lot of fun, but there are also tonnes of opportunities to meet the characters at different stages and places throughout the park. You could meet your favourite characters at any stage throughout the park and they will only be too delighted to pose for a photo and give your child an autograph! So make sure you are ready at all times!
