Sometimes you end up where life wants you to be at exactly that moment and if it’s where magic comes to life, then it’s obviously a sign.

European Union lawmakers are required to travel from Brussels in Belgium to Strasbourg in France once a month. That’s because according to EU laws and even though parliamentary business is carried out in Brussels, Strasbourg is the official seat of the European Parliament.

The special train carrying the lawmakers and their aides was accidentally routed onto the wrong track and ended up stopping at the Marne-la-Vallee station close to Disneyland Paris.

Those on board saw the funny side of it with Emmanuel Foulon, a parliamentary press officer, tweeting “Where magic comes to life’ – will Disney’s slogan soon be that of the European Parliament?”

Unfortunately, the stopover was too short and those on board weren’t allowed to disembark and take advantage of their proximity to the park.

News24 repots that French railway company SNCF told AFP the train was delayed by 45 minutes because of the error. It was eventually shunted back onto the correct high-speed track for Strasbourg.
