After discussing the news about Halloween and a potential Frozen sing-a-long in Disneyland Paris, we talk abut the rumour of the 10 and 2 changes coming to the resort.

This is the first of four interviews I conducted whilst in Disneyland Paris for Disney’s Enchanted Christmas, the trip report of which can be found on episode 4 of the podcast. We’re starting off with one of the most brilliant people involved with Disneyland Paris, Vasile Sirli. This is the man responsible for iconic tunes such as Chante c’est Noel, It’s Halloween-lo-ween, Dancin’ (A Catchy Rhythm) and the mastermind behind The Tarzan Encounter. A truly fascinating man, as you are about to find out. Listen out for the bit where I'm told I only have 2 minutes left and quickly get another question in!


The Disney purchase of LucasFilm was of course a big discussion point of episode 3 but we also talked about Phantom Manor updates, the extension of the Disneyland Paris 20th Anniversary, Ratatouille developments and the small matter of Steve going back to Disneyland Paris in just a few days. There was a load of feedback from you guys and the attraction of the week, as well as much much more.
