Make a splash with Mickey and friends at new Disney swim sessions

Published October 03, 2019 9.58am


Exciting new Disney themed swim sessions launch this month at two Durham County Council pools.

Disney Swim Sessions Mickey and Friends 2019

Mickey Mouse themed swim sessions begin on Saturday 5 October

Families can enjoy Disney inspired pool adventures with Mickey Mouse and his friends at Spennymoor and Newton Aycliffe Leisure Centres and are invited to try the first session for free.

Sessions take place on Saturdays from 2.00pm to 2.45pm at Newton Aycliffe Leisure Centre and between 3.00pm and 3.45pm at Spennymoor Leisure Centre and will usually cost £4 for one adult and one child.

To celebrate the launch, on Saturday 5 October families can join in for free. 

Swim session places must be booked in advance at the pool reception or by contacting Spennymoor Leisure Centre or Newton Aycliffe Leisure Centre.

10 fun games

Designed for children aged three to 11 years, and delivered by a trained activator, each session features 10 fun games inspired by Disney's most-loved characters. From helping Minnie Mouse to find her Hollywood stars, to creating a parade with Daisy Duck, and from building a boat with Goofy to making instruments to join Mickey Mouse's orchestra, families can enjoy 45 minutes full of fun each week.

Inspired by the magic of Disney

Kaye Stephenson, principal aquatics manager, said: "These sessions are perfect for anyone looking for a way to keep their family healthy, happy and active. They're suited to all swimming abilities and the whole family can enjoy them together as parents and carers are encouraged to join in too. 

"The games in each session have been inspired by the magic of Disney storytelling and will teach children a key life skill in a fun and exciting way."

The Mickey and Friends swim sessions have been organised in partnership between Swim England and Disney, following the success of their Finding Dory swim sessions in 2016 and Toy Story 4 swim sessions earlier this year.
