Fly with me into a Fairytale: Disneyland Paris
A dream came true when Disney Europe invited us to join a kick-off event for the all year happening marathon in Disneyland Paris, is the most visited theme park in all of Europe. Doesn’t matter how old you are, when Disney knocks on the door you are directly thrown back in time of childhood. You are jumping with Marry Poppins into dreamworld, fighting with Jack sparrow against monsters of the sea, singing with the Lion King. With that inquiry we were definitly super excited to go there and ticking off one of our aims on the bucket list.
Arrival in another dreamland
When we arrived at the airport by plane, we took a Uber taxi. Some minutes later we `left France´ and entered into the world of Disney in a nowhere of the countryside close to Paris (check out our Paris city guide). Huge hotel areas, an own train station and a Disney Village with own shops all about their merchandise (Disney clothing, Disney sweets and other favours). Cafés and Restaurants are placed there too that you can start your mornings at Starbucks and end the days at McDonalds. We were accomodated in the Disney’s Sequoia Lodge Hotel, were all rooms has their own theme. We had a room in Bambi design and even the shower gel was in Bambi style.
Action Stunt Show
After a first lunch with the other influencers invited by Disney we went together to The Moteurs… Action! Stunt Show Spectacular, performed at Walt Disney Studios Park in Disneyland Paris. You can follow to a series of energetic stunts featuring automobiles in 40 minutes. The show includes also a car-based action, pyrotechnics, jet ski chases, and physical stuntwork. Also Lightning McQueen from cars is driving in this show and we had the chance to take pictures with the crew…
Disneyland Park Paris
The other theme park is Disneyland Park and is divided into five themed areas with lots of attractions. The famous Sleeping Beauty Castle is amazing and very instagramable. But also the new showplace of Star Wars (Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain) is exiting.
Walt Disney Studios Park
To all who enter this studio of dreams…welcome. Walt Disney Studios is dedicated to our timeless fascination and affection for cinema and television. Here we celebrate the art and the artistry of storytellers from Europe and around the world who create magic. May this special place stir our own memories of the past, and our dreams of the future.

Walt Disney Studios Park is the second of two theme parks in Disneyland Paris. This park is completly themed after movies, production and behind-the-scenes, packed in a ghost train, switchbacks and other attraction.
Disney Gala at The Disney’s Newport Bay Club
Altogether we were around 200 influencers, journalists and some of them brought their kids with. In the evening we went dressed up to the gala of this event by Run Disney in the hotel Newport Bay Club, which is styled after archetypal New England architecture with its white clapboard exterior, porches, woodwork and nautical memorabilia. The hotel islocated close to the lake Disney. We sat on a round table together with two couples of Japan and Spain and their cutes kids, who were all dressed in a completed Disney outfit. The food selection was amazing and we had a great time together with all the others from all over thr world. Besides, we were listening to a speech of the founder of Run Disney and also the ambassador`s.
Run Disney at the Disneyland Paris
Disneyland opened early in the morning their gates just for us influencers and journalists to run off the distance of the marathon. Mickey and Minnie Mouse joined us too and together we ran into the sunrise. After that, we had a delicious breakfast at the Disney’s Hotel New York.
We spent the whole day in both Disneyland theme park`s. Thankfully we had a fast lane ticket, that we never had to wait more than 5 minutes. That was great!
A childhood dream came definitly true. We are happy to had the opportunity to work with Run Disney. Thank you!
