Disneyland Paris is Europe’s most popular destination, having amassed over 250million visitors in 20 years. The fastest any Disney park has ever reached that number!
The project started in the 1980s when Disney executives wanted to bring the magic over to Europe, soon deciding on France due to its central location and favourable weather when compared to some countries further north in Europe. It was also a 2 hour flight from much of Europe.
The Disneyland Park opened in 1992 and ten years later a second park opened: Walt Disney Studios.
This year is an exciting time to visit as the resort celebrates it’s 20th anniversary meaning that amongst other things the resort now has an impressive 20-minute nighttime snow - Disney Dreams. In addition, the whole park has been refurbished and has never looked so beautiful!
Disneyland is not just a place for rides, it is a place to meet characters or just take in the general ambiance. For the thrill seekers... there are some exciting rides for you there too.
The final thing to remember is that Disneyland Paris is not just a theme park: it is a place where dreams really do come true.
