Did you know November 18th is Mickey Mouse's birthday? It is marked by the date the “Steamboat Willie” short film debuted, the world’s first formal introduction to the beloved mouse. The black and white animation premiered in 1928, making Mickey Mouse 89 years old!
Walt Disney opened his first Disneyland® Park in California in 1955. It wasn’t until 37 years later that "The happiest place on earth" set up shop across the pond in France when Disneyland® Paris opened in 1992. Welcoming over 13 million visitors annually, Disneyland® Paris is a wonderful destination for school trips
Why Disneyland® Paris for a school trip?
Learn French in situ
The majority of visitors to the park are French natives, so the air will be abuzz with the French language. There are always opportunities to use French in practice on your school trip. Get creative! Challenge your students to order their lunch in French, or put those French reading skills to work and challenge your group to navigate through the park following the French signposts.
Magic for music students
An unforgettable performance venue awaits on this music school trip. We work in conjunction with Disney Magic Music Days to get your music students performing on stage inside the park! Take a look at our full sample music tour, including scheduled performances at incredible world-class venues like Château de Versailles and Notre-Dame Cathedral. WOW!
Two different parks
With a flexi ticket, your group can hop over to Walt Disney Studios® Park, a world of cinema and television. This park is a great destination for art school trips and media school trips in particular. Learn about the production process behind everything from hand-drawn animations to live action stunts. The thrill seekers among your school group can experience the stomach-dropping rides like The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ and Rock 'n' Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith!
