MORE rules are changing at Disneyland Paris next week, which is great news for families visiting the theme park.
Guests have already seen the return of hugs from some of the characters along with the scrapping of face masks last month.
From March 31, character dining will return to the restaurants, meaning guests will be able to meet their favourite princesses as well as Mickey and Minnie.
Guests will be able to book the experiences once again via the Disneyland Paris app from next week, with prices starting at €35.
And from April 1, meet and greets with the characters will no longer have to be social distanced.
While some restrictions have been lifted for fur characters in outdoor areas, this will now be lifted entirely to include face characters and when indoors.
Social media users were ecstatic by the news, with one person saying: “I’m gunna sob.”
Another replied: “Best news of the day.”
The changes came just in time for the theme park to begin its 30th birthday celebrations, which kicked off at the weekend.
A new daytime show is taking place daily in front of the newly refurbished Sleeping Beauty Castle which features more than 30 Disney characters and dancers on colourful floats.
Meanwhile, Micky, Minnie, Donald and all their friends are showing off new shimmery costumes which were created specially for the milestone.
Additionally, Minnie has got a brand new outfit designed by Stella McCartney to celebrate the park’s birthday – her first ever tuxedo which is being worn in honour of Women’s History Month.
There are some amazing Disneyland Paris deals on offer, including two-night breaks with park tickets from £179pp, with Eurostar relaunching direct Disneyland Paris routes.
Here are the best times to visit Disneyland Paris throughout the year, according to an expert.
And France is easing their Covid restrictions, having scrapped their Covid pass which was required by teenagers and adults to enter restaurants, cafes and theme parks.
Brits still need to be vaccinated to enter France, or if unvaxxed, have an essential reason for travel.
