posted on April 20th, 2015 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Social Media Manager


Looks like it’s a lovely morning in Adventureland at Disneyland Park (Paris). Photographer Tom Bricker recently stopped through the park and got us this great shot just as the Disney Pirate Galleon, Pirates’ Beach and Skull Rock were just opening for the day. Here young guests can explore the caverns of Davy Jones’ Locker and two pirate playgrounds where they can even walk a plank. Gorgeous skies make for great treasure hunting – isn’t that what they say?
