During his visit, Nadal waved to fans and signed autographs while enjoying the Magical Moments Festival and his favorite Disney attractions, such as Pirates of the Caribbean, Space Mountain: Mission 2, Tower of Terror and Crush’s Coaster.

Regarded as the new “King of Clay,” Nadal was once again victorious on Roland Garros’ clay courts, earning his milestone sixth French Open title, tying him with Björn Borg for most all-time.

Congratulations Rafael!
…and most importantly, the end of Roland Garos means DLP’s summer season is just one month away!
(so we’ll be taking the TGV to Paris and walk down Mainstreet, ride every ride, have great dinners at l’Auberge, Walt’s, Silver Spur, Blue Lagoon and Plaza Gardens, enjoy the Fantillusion parade and Enchanted Fireworks and sleep in Western-style at Hotel Cheyenne in just a few weeks time! yay!)
