The One and Only King

For all ‘Circle of Life’ fans out there, there is reason to rejoice. Till 22nd September, 2019, The Lion King Jungle Festival at Disneyland Paris is bringing to life two of your childhood’s most defining tales: The Lion King and The Jungle Book. The stunning new shows will be fully immersive, dropping the guests into the heart of the action.

And if you love to roar like Simba, or know every word to Hakuna Matata, you’re in luck. Disneyland Paris is turning into a jungle, too! Swing through the exciting rides, dance with your favourite characters, and let your wild side out. Between Baloo’s dance moves and Timon’s antics there’s nothing here you’d want to miss.

We know there’s a lot to do! So no worries if your toes are too tired, there’s always a cure. Fuel up at any of the restaurants for a quick fix. Or for a longer, more indulgent experience, book any of the Disney hotels and resorts in the area.

The Disney Magic

From 5-star luxury to early access to the parks, the magic truly never ends. Forget your responsibilities and fulfil your childhood whims, as the staff spoil you and your family. They’re not just hotels, they’re experiences. And memories you can’t possibly get anywhere else.

Each Disney Hotel has its own magical story to tell. Disney’s Newport Bay Club is a majestic 1920’s New England mansion with Mickey Mouse themed rooms, while Disney’s Hotel Cheyenne has Toy Story themed rooms that take you straight to the wild, wild west. When you stay at the Disney Hotels Resorts you get exclusive access to parts of the Disney parks before the official opening times, so you can get on the rides before everyone else. And you might even meet your favourite Disney character in the lobby of your hotel!

There’s something about waiting for the parade to start, the occasional sighting of a beloved character, and the light jingles of ice-cream trucks that is soothing, and exciting at the same time. For just one day, you can leave the stress, the subway tickets, the itineraries and the watchful eye on your kids behind. Let them loose. And let yourself loose.

So leave your troubles behind and enjoy your time in a whole new world. Board the train to the most colourful, most joyful place on Earth, where the best stories in the world are told with the most awe-inspiring music. It’s time to turn back time and feel the freedom and magic of your childhood again. If we had to put it simply, Hakuna Matata – it means no worries!
