25 is a big year. Well on the way to 30, the business end of your twenties is often met with trepidation. For some, the coming of 25 is the perfect time to look back and take stock, while for others, reaching this epic milestone is a great excuse to host a damn good party. Not surprisingly, the uber fun gang at Disneyland Paris are very much the latter of the two. The 25th anniversary of Disneyland Paris is cause for many, many exciting celebrations. Here’s our roundup of the best events on at Disneyland Paris in honour of their 25 years of service.
