Dubai, UAE: UAE residents and visitors are cordially invited to experience a magical Disney weekend at The Pointe, Nakheel’s iconic waterfront destination on Palm Jumeirah. From May 13 to 15, guests will enjoy dazzling fountain shows and incredible dining offers across the destination.
To mark the festivities, The Pointe is also debuting a new song in its show-stopping fountain display. For the first time, The Palm Fountain will dance to ‘Starting Now’, an original song written specifically for Disney’s yearlong Ultimate Princess Celebration, which spotlights the courage and kindness of Disney heroines.
