JULY 2019

Take-off

To quote the fearsome Scar, “be

prepared” to jump to the beat of the

African savannah and the Indian

jungle with two spectacular new

shows,

The Lion King: Rhythms of the

Pride Lands

and

The Jungle Book Jive

,

at Disneyland Paris.

The famous music from

The Lion

King

will be performed with a new

twist, telling the legend of Simba,

Nala, Rafiki, Mufasa, Scar, Timon and

Pumbaa. Singers, dancers, acrobats

and drummers will add a new

dimension to the Pride Lands with

original routines and costumes.

The Jungle Book Jive

celebrates

The Jungle Book

, right in the heart of

Disneyland Paris. Guests will be invited

on a colourful and exciting journey

through the Indian jungle at this show

in front of the Sleeping Beauty Castle.

Guests will be treated to a bundle of

fun with Baloo and King Louie, and, of

course, Mickey and Friends will be the

explorers for the season. They will be

accompanied by artists from India,

Leading the modern face of wooden

wave riding, the Dick Pearce

collection of wooden bellyboards

come in an array of colours and are all

handmade to traditional methods in

Newquay, the British home of surfing.

Wooden bellyboards were the

original surfboards hailing from

Hawaii. They arrived in Britain in the

1940s with soldiers returning from

the war, and the Dick Pearce brand

was created in Devon in the 1960s.

Recently relaunched, each board is

lovingly produced to last a lifetime

using sustainable materials, methods,

equipment and designs passed down

by the original British maker and

father of bellyboarding in the UK –

Dick Pearce.

Bellyboarding is an easy and fun

way for all ages to enjoy the ocean.

Simply stand in thigh-deep water

with your back to the incoming

waves, holding the board in front of

you. Choose a wave about to break

approximately a metre behind you

and push off, body on board, legs

trailing, and enjoy the ride back to

the beach. Boards cost from £45-£65.
