Disneyland Paris Trip 2018

Disneyland Paris, originally Euro Disney Resort, is an entertainment resort in Marne-la-Vallée, a new town located 32 km east of the centre of Paris.  It encompasses 19 square kilometres and contains 2 theme parks, 7 resort hotels, 7 associated hotels, a golf course, a railway station and a large, shopping, dining and entertainment area, Disney Village.

Circumstances may change or students may simply wish to withdraw from the trip for reasons of their own.  If this happens, please let Mr Alan Lewis know as soon as possible to ensure that another student can take their place.
