Since 1984, the Walt Disney Company in the United States has been thinking about opening a theme park in Europa - based on the models of the Magic Kingdom style parks in the USA. In 1992 it finally happened: On April 12, Disneyland Paris opened it´s doors. Since that day, this place in the area of Marne le Vallée, which is not far from Paris, has become a place of enchantment, as it says on the park's inauguration board.
Disneyland Park is divided into five themed areas: Main Street USA, Frontierland, Adventureland, Fantasyland and Discoveryland. Each of these so-called lands has a theming specific to its name. The entire park is overlooked by the magical castle.
Disneyland Park is the most popular amusement park in Europe, not only due to the loving and elaborate design of the attractions but also because the Disneyland roller coasters and other rides are designed to fit perfectly into the theming and continue to tell the story of their land.
The special thing about all Disney Parks in the world is that visitors feel transported into another world after just a few minutes. Everyday life is forgotten and the Disney magic takes over.
If you've never visited a Disney Park before, no matter where in the world, it's hard to imagine that feeling. But be sure: you will be caught by the magic as well! The combination of design, background music and technical implementation is just too perfect to withstand it. It happens again and again that adults get caught humming happily on Main Street without realizing it.
Because of the consistent design, Disneyland Park not only attracts fans of roller coasters and carousels from all over the world, but also those who just want to meet Mickey Mouse or those who want to dive into another world for a few days.
Of course shopping and eating are also part of the Disney experience, so it comes as no surprise that there are plenty of boutiques and shops, and various restaurants in Disneyland Park.
Be part of the magic, let yourself be carried away by it and become a child again.
