We’re Disney junkies, so of course, when our family decided to visit France the short train ride from Paris to Disneyland Paris was on the list of things to do. We loved the park! It is beautiful and has many things unique to Disneyland Paris, but I’ll be honest. One of the most amazing things we found about Disneyland Paris was that EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER GREETING was out of control amazing!
For example, take a second and watch this video of my children meeting Jack Skellington!
I mean, wow, right? EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER we met was like that, you guys. They were 100% totally engaged and were never in any kind of rush to move on to the next person. They were fully the character in a way that, honestly, I haven’t seen at Disney World or Disneyland. Now I’m not downing the other park actors, I’m just saying that THESE folks were beyond the beyond.
Add to the amazing acting the fact that they all could speak MULTIPLE LANGUAGES and you have a recipe for greatness. The group just ahead of us meeting jack were Chinese and he easily slipped into the language and the group right behind us were from Spain and he switched into Spanish. CAN YOU IMAGINE!?! It was like having the most personalized version of your character you could imagine!
But it wasn’t just jack who was fantastic to check out this Maleficent. Never smiled never anything other than this super poised character. Didn’t care if the kid was scared… they were THAT CHARACTER and to me, that is what being a truly engaged actor as a character is all about.
So if you ever have the opportunity to visit Disneyland Paris, or have been there in the past, let me know what YOU think about the character experiences there! I honestly couldn’t say enough great things!!
