A number of famous faces descended upon Disneyland Paris this weekend to experience the new Star Wars celebration, Season of The Force. Among them were Rio Ferdinand and his girlfriend Kate Wright, who took his children for a fun-filled family weekend away.

In official photos taken from their trip, the couple appear to be having fun as they pose with Mickey Mouse in front of the iconic Disney castle, with Kate getting into the spirit by donning a pair of Minnie Mouse ears. Meanwhile, in another image Rio protectively shields Kate as a pair of Stormtroopers walk by.
