"We’ve been to the ones in California and Florida, but this is the first time here in Paris performing Beauty and the Beast live for the first time. It was a good night," John said, adding: “Disney has meant a lot to me since when I was a kid, so performing to the kids and grown-ups alike to celebrate the anniversary at Disneyland Paris - my first visit here - was pretty magical."

The All of Me singer, who has recently returned from a family holiday to Morocco, also admitted he was looking forward to bringing his daughter Luna along for her first Disney experience with himself and wife Chrissy Teigen. John said: "Disney parks get you back in touch with your inner child and bring back many memories of how important Disney was to our lives as a kid. And now we have a young kid ourselves it will be exciting to bring her to the parks and have her experience that too."
