Disneyland Paris announces new Covid rules as guests can finally hug characters

Disneyland Paris guests must brace themselves for even more changes at the park – but this time it's a great update!

That's because guests can once again hug, high-five and pose with beloved characters now coronavirus restrictions have eased.

As well as hugs, characters are signing autographs so kids can fill their book with signatures from their favourite characters.

Face masks have been scrapped in the theme park too.

The promising news comes as France's vaccine rules were explained when the country relaxed some Covid measures.

What's great is that the announcement came just in time for the theme park to begin its 30th birthday celebrations.

A spokesperson said: "Following the latest government guidance, we are pleased to announce character experiences at Disneyland Paris will start to allow our guests to get closer to their favourite characters for a special moment and hug or a photo together.

"Many experiences featuring Disney, Pixar and Star Wars characters will see this change."

To celebrate its birthday, which kicked off at the weekend, a new daytime show is taking place daily.

This is happening in front of the newly refurbished Sleeping Beauty Castle which features more than 30 characters and dancers.

The Disney Illuminations night time show also has a new opening number called Disney D-Light, with video projections, water jets and family-favourite songs.

Mickey and Minnie Mouse, along with Donald and the rest of the gang will be showing off their new costumes which were created for the milestone.

Although hugs are back on in Disneyland Paris, they are still banned at Disney World in Orlando, US.

Speaking of all theme parks, plans for the UK's answer to Disneyland were thrown into chaos last week.

Plans for the London Resort (which would be located in Kent) have been in the works for years.

Nature activists have consistently opposed the proposed resort as they said it would damage wildlife habitats in the area.

And the most vulnerable of these species is a rare jumping spider only found in one other place in the UK.
