Parade performer injured during Once Upon a Dream Parade.

This Monday at Disneyland Paris during Disney’s Once Upon a Dream Parade there was an incident in Fantasyland which injured one of the parade performers.
The Cast Member playing Maleficent on the ‘Dreams of Power Float’ (a parade vetrain of seven years and one of the orignal Maleficent’s) fell from the float backwards landing on her neck, after her harness and seat structure snapped in half sending  her crashing to the grownd.
After five minuets she was able to get-up and walk off the parade route and backstage, without her usual dose of “force and power”.  But still snarling at guests of course, many of whom were still asking for autographs and photos!!
The parade was rushed through afterwards with the rather sad looking power float looking not so powerful!
The float returned to the Parade yesturday but without Maleficent.  It is not yet clear if or when she will return to the float.

Rafael Nadal celebrates win at Disneyland Paris

One day after winning the French Open, Rafael Nadal celebrated at Disneyland Paris by signing autographs and riding some attractions, including “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “It’s a Small World.”
He was joined in front of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle along with the Incredibles.
“It’s a place I love,” said Nada, who routed Robin Soderling 6-4, 6-2, 6-4 on Sunday. “I often come with family.”
It was the fifth French Open title for Nadal at Roland Garros, achieved in only six years.
Only Bjorn Borg, with six French Open championships, has won more. The silver-haired Swede turned 54 on Sunday; you have to wonder whether this time next year, he’ll have company in the record book.

Urdd Eisteddfod winner to sing at Welsh Festival

A Talented youngster picked up two top honours at the Urdd Eisteddfod yesterday – and picked up a ticket to Disneyland Paris for himself and his family.
Rhys Meilyr Jones, from Ysgol Corn Hir, Llangefni won the singing solo for 10 and 11 year old and the cerdd dant solo for those under 12 at the Urdd Eisteddfod in Ceredigion.
The 11-year-old also came second in the folk song solo.
A delighted Rhys said: “I enjoy competing and I hadn’t won the cerdd dant solo before so it’s great to have won it this time.
He’ll be back at the Maes today singing with the school choir before enjoying a few days holiday in Ceredigion with his brother Ynyr and sister Alaw.
Rhys’ victory in the solo means he’ll be one of five winners from this week’s Eisteddfod heading to Paris next March to take part in the Welsh Festival in the famous theme park.
Singing and taking part in a parade with Mickey Mouse won’t be a new experience for Rhys as he took part in this year’s festival too.
A regular competitor at the smaller village Eisteddfodau around Wales Rhys will now take a break from competing until the National Eisteddfod in August.
When not singing Rhys plays football for the llangefni under 11s and is a keen Manchester United fan.
