It’s the dream of pretty much every kid in the world to head to Disneyland at some point in their lives and experience the wonder.
There was always that one lucky kid who got to go to Disneyland for their birthday or Christmas, and would come back so smug you could barely spend time with them.
But now you can be that kid, thanks to a Eurostar one-way ticket for just £38, a price not to be sniffed at.
It’s actually cheaper than a train from Manchester to London, which will leave your wallet about £100 lighter.
There are some restrictions to these tickets to Disneyland Paris, but they’re fairly easy to manoeuvre your way around.
All you need to do is travel between midday and midnight on a Monday, anytime on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays, and between midday and midnight on Saturday.
That’s pretty much the whole week so if you can’t find the time to go within those slots then tbh you don’t deserve to go and I’ll take your seat instead.
The trains depart from St. Pancras International, Ebbsfleet or Ashford, and you can go in standard class or standard premier if you really wanted to push the boat out, check out the full details here.
If you’re still uncertain about making your way over the channel for some family friendly magic, then fear not, the UK is still going to get its own iconic park, courtesy of Paramount.
It’s looking to be good, and they’re looking to pump £3.5 billion into the Paramount theme park, dubbed the ‘UK’s Disneyland’.
The theme park is set to open in Kent in 2022 and will have around 50 rides based on Paramount films and BBC shows.
The huge park could attract up to 40,000 visitors a day and will be built in Dartford.
Paramount have made Hollywood films like Zoolander, Anchorman, and Mission Impossible, so the theme park could take on a slightly more adult feel than Disney’s theme parks.
News site KentLive has reported that the plans for the project will be sent to the government for approval in November and the company is confident that they will be approved.
As well as Paramount film-inspired rides, the park will take ideas from the BBC and Aardman Animations, who made Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the Sheep.
Humphrey Percy, group CEO of the project’s parent company Kuwaiti European Holdings, told Kent Live:
We’re working with world class theme park design companies to make sure that we have a real attraction. I’m talking about companies that have their headquarters in California and support the major film studios and attractions across the world.
We are working with the railways to make sure there’s sufficient capacity. We’re also considering having a boat from central London or Greenwich which will all be part of the attraction.
We have the financial backing to take us all the way through that process.
We will make sure that this experience is for the whole family. It’s going to be a very amazing and exciting thing for them.
In the meantime, though, get your self over to Paris quick time.
