Disneyland© Paris, France
January is upon us and that can mean only one thing; it's time to prepare for our annual January weekend breaks to Disneyland Paris and this year we will be joined by hundreds of members of Girlguiding UK and The Scout Association.
Leave the UK by coach after school on Friday; take a short journey over (or under) the channel; sit back and relax as you make the final stretch of your journey; then, late evening or early Saturday morning, you get your eagerly anticipated, first glimpse of Disneyland Paris. There really couldn't be an easier way for groups of any size to enjoy all that Disneyland© Paris has to offer!

This January and February, groups of Brownies, Guides, Cubs and Scouts made their way to the magical world of Disneyland Paris to hop aboard the magic carpet.
2nd St Leonards Guides were one of the groups to experience the delightful thrills of Disneyland after they decided their 100th birthday year called for something special to mark the occasion. Gill Clare, Leader of 2nd St Leonards Guides, gives us her account of the trip…

The bags are packed and the VA team are ready for the off! The eagerly anticipated Disney January weekend is about to start again and we are making our way down to Paris tomorrow to ensure that tickets are counted, meal vouchers are ready and rooms are checked before the groups arrive on Friday night.
We look forward to seeing everyone there – have a safe journey!

Welcoming the groups to Disneyland Paris after their long day of travelling and seeing the excitement on their faces reminded me of the reason Venture Abroad run this trip annually, for the enjoyment of the children. An early start or little bit of rain does not dampen their spirits nor does it deter them from spending a full day in the park. Our job is to be on hand throughout the weekend to ensure that everyone has a smooth and enjoyable time and I am pleased to report that our 13th Disneyland® Paris January Weekends went off without a glitch.
On behalf of the Venture Abroad team and representatives I would like to say a big thank you to all the groups who were on the trip and we hope that you thoroughly enjoyed your Venture Abroad Disneyland Paris experience.
One day back in the office and there is already some great feedback reminding us why we continue to run this trip year after year.
“Thank you all so much for making what I thought was going to be one big head ache into the most amazing weekend.”

“An enjoyable, fun weekend for scouts and leaders alike.”

“A packed weekend full of fun, thrills, laughter and dreams coming true! The best moment was watching the Guides having fun, making friends and trying new experiences.”

The bags are packed and the alarm is set for 5 am, this can only mean one thing in January – the Venture Abroad Reps are off to Disneyland Paris! A 10 hour journey will land us in The Davy Crockett Ranch, our base for the weekend.
We get there the day before to make sure everything is in order for a fab weekend for all the groups arriving on Friday. Tickets and vouchers are checked, keys collected and we are ready to go!
Roll on Friday evening, the weekend really starts then and we are looking forward to seeing you all!
