Disneyland likely says it gives visitors to its theme parks the royal treatment, but if you want to see the park through the eyes of a real prince be prepared to pay up.

A Saudi prince spent 15 million euros, or about $19.5 million, for three days of fun at Disneyland near Paris to celebrate his degree.

Prince Fahd al-Saud booked entire areas of the park over May 22 to 24 for his 60-odd guests, according to a report by AFP that cited Euro Disney. The report said the festivities included tailor-made events involving "rare Disney characters" as well as special security for the prince, who is said to be one of the park's top customers.
