Saudi prince 'spends €15m' on Disneyland Paris visit

A Saudi prince has reportedly spent €15 million on a private visit to Disneyland Paris.

Prince Fahd al-Saud is said to have booked entire areas of the park last month to celebrate getting his degree.

Euro Disney, which runs the theme park, regularly organises private events for firms or people.

The festivities included tailor-made events involving "rare Disney characters", according to the AFP news agency.

Special security is believed to have been put in place for the prince, one of the park's top customers.

The theme park attracted 16 million visitors last year, but Euro Disney says it has not made any profits since it was set up in 1992.

Last year, it lost €120.9 million in the first half of its financial year compared with a net loss of €99.5 million in the same period a year earlier.
