In this episode we take a look at the whole new world we live in with the reopening of Shanghai Disneyland following its closure for the COVID19 global pandemic. Don't worry we spend no time actually talking about viruses and focus only on what it means for Disney and the likely reopening of other parks.
Today we take a look at the average waits across the entire year to look and analyse when is best to visit Disneyland Paris. We explore some common misconceptions and work out when is best to take your trip - looking at a variety of pro's and con's surrounding these times.
