Stars have turned out in force to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Disneyland Paris.

Twenty years ago today, Disneyland Paris opened its gates for the very first time and to mark the milestone anniversary, British celebrities including Kym Marsh, Lisa Maxwell and Erin O'Connor gathered to toast the occasion with a hearty brew at a truly British tea party - on the park's famous Mad Hatter's Tea Cups attraction in Fantasyland.

While enjoying chocolate-dipped strawberries and choux pastries, the stars and their families were joined by a host of famous Disney characters including Alice in Wonderland and the Mad Hatter.

And, to complete the occasion, Mickey and Minnie Mouse presented the group with a spectacular 20th anniversary tiered cake, created especially for the party.

The celebrity guests also enjoyed the new fantasy-fuelled daytime event, Disney Magic On Parade.

After sunset, the families gathered in the Disneyland Park to view the brand new Disney Dreams! night time spectacular, projected onto Sleeping Beauty Castle amid an array of pyrotechnics, lasers and special effects.

The Disney Magic on Parade and the Disney Dreams shows are just two of the things the theme park has created for its 20th anniversary celebrations, which started on 1 April 2012.
