Disneyland Paris

by Jakob Jelling

Disneyland Paris is an entertainment resort located in Marne la Vallée about 30 kilometers from Paris. This place is one of the most visited spots of France, not only by children but by adults as well. Disneyland Paris is a complex resort, which counts with several different attractions and areas besides the Park itself.

There is a variety of ways to access this area and tourists always find a convenient one. One of the most efficient ways to reach Disneyland Paris is by train, due to the fact that there are several train lines and combinations which go through this area, coming from several different places of France as well as from other countries such as Belgium and England. Also, tourists can opt for going to the Resort by bus or renting a car, both of them very convenient as well.

Disneyland Paris' entertainment park started working at beginnings of 1992 under the name of Euro Disney. During its opening and its first months of existence, this park did not have as much success as it was expected to have, but this started to change at 1994, when its name and some of its characteristics changed.

Since 1994, the former Euro Disney became Disneyland Paris and an overall change in the park structure accompanied the new name as well. Since then, the Park started receiving a much higher amount of visitors and with them it started becoming more profitable as well.

Disneyland Paris consists on several areas which turn it into a very complete and convenient entertainment resort. The main spot of this resort is its Disneyland Park, which counts on five different areas based on different themes as well as a central beautiful castle. Another area within this resort is the Walt Disney Studios Park, very attractive for adults, as well as the area of Disney Village which counts with a central shopping complex. Surrounding these areas, there are several hotels, known as the Disneyland Resort Hotels, allowing visitors to choose one which properly suits their needs without having to travel from another point every day for visiting the Park.
