Fun facts

Hidden beneath Disneyland Paris is a vast network of tunnels and corridors known as 'Utilitors' which allow employees to haul equipment unnoticed and characters to move discreetly throughout the park.

Many of the tenants you see on the upstairs windows on Main Street, USA are real people. Most of these tenants are based off people who contributed to the development of the park.

Paul Chapman, the stained glass expert who worked on the restoration of Notre Dame, also worked on the stained glass windows for Princess Aurora’s Castle in his 80s.

Brief History of Disneyland Paris

  • In 1966, the success of Disneyland in California sparked plans for a similar theme park in Europe, called Euro Disney. Potential locations for the park included Frankfurt, London, Paris, Milan, and regions in Spain.
  • Eventually, Marne-la-Vallée was chosen as the site for Euro Disney due to its proximity to Paris and central location in Western Europe.
  • The Paris Disneyland complex, with 5,200 Disney-owned hotel rooms featuring exclusive American themes, followed in the years that followed.
  • In the early years, Euro Disney faced denunciation and protests from French critics and farmers, who feared the promotion of unhealthy American consumerism in France. French Labor Unions also opposed the employment regulations for staff.
  • Nevertheless, Euro Disney Resort opened its first theme park, Euro Disneyland, in April 1992.
  • However, soon after its opening, Euro Disney faced financial and employment difficulties due to the European recession.
  • In 1994, Euro Disneyland was rebranded as Disneyland Paris, and the resort reported its first quarterly profits in July 1995.
  • Further changes came in 2002 when it was renamed Disneyland Resort Paris and introduced a second theme park, Walt Disney Studios Park, along with several expansion projects.
  • Since then, Disneyland Paris has thrived, attracting a regular influx of visitors who absolutely adore their experience at the theme park.
