Olympics Team GB swim star Rebecca Adlington has just returned from a visit to Disneyland Paris, where she let her hair down with the likes of Mickey Mouse and co.

After months of relentless training, Rebecca headed off to Disneyland Paris with her family, where she enjoyed the park's 20th Anniversary celebrations.

Rebecca said: "Since the Olympics, it's been a complete whirlwind. I'm here at Disneyland Paris with my family and it's such a great chance for us to spend time together after being separated for so long for the games. It's amazing, it's my absolute dream!"

During her visit, Rebecca waved to fans and signed autographs, while enjoying attractions like the Big Thunder Mountain, the new Disney Magic on Parade, as well as ending her day watching the new Disney Dreams night time castle show.

Rebecca even admitted that she still sleeps with a Goofy teddy, adding: "I'm a huge fan of the Disney princesses. I love them and I can't wait to meet them and have my photograph taken with them." Another goal ticked off (above).

While letting her hair down at the park, Rebecca also let us in on her Rio 2016 Olympics plans, saying: "Rio is going to be so exciting. The whole country is very carnival, it has a party atmosphere, so it will be incredible. I'm not sure whether I'll be there competing or spectating but I'll definitely be there cheering on the whole of Team GB!"

Your favourite characters, like Donald Duck, Goofy, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, will have brand new 20th birthday 'Sorcerer's Apprentice' outfits for you to marvel over.

Everybody's favourite mouse is taking time out and welcomes you to meet him backstage in the rehearsal room of his theatre in Fantasyland.

Disney Dreams! is the unmissable new nighttime spectacular show, which will take place at the majestic Sleeping Beauty Castle.

To celebrate the 20th Anniversary, for 12 months from April 2012, Disneyland Park will be showered with sparkling lights and fairy dust, making the experience more magical than ever.

Every day, one of the Disney Princesses invites visitors to an enchanted rendezvous, so make sure you take them up on the opportunity to strike your own royal pose with them.
