Disneyland Paris and the environment : taking action and inspiring others

While the spring season ends in a few days at Disneyland® Paris, it is the same for our series of articles devoted to the environmental and horticultural aspect of the tourist destination. But if the company has implemented many initiatives to promote bio diversity or reduce its ecological footprint on the site, it is also important to her to inspire and educate its visitors or employees on these fundamental issues.

Informing children and reconnecting future generations with nature

Children are increasingly less connected to nature and the natural world, yet the future of this world is in their hands. It is therefore vital that they reconnect with nature. As a key player in the tourism sector in the region, Disneyland Paris plays a crucial role in relation to the local community. The resort makes use of its iconic brand to help raise the awareness of the local community, both young and old, regarding the protection of the environment. Disneyland Paris has therefore committed to a range of awareness-raising and information initiatives targeting children, notably through its Corporate Citizenship department. Since September 2014, in response to a request from the Chessy town council, Disney VoluntEARS, along with members of the Nature and Environment team have visited three local primary schools as part of their extra-curricular programme of activities. Five workshops were organised for primary school children aged 7 to 10 years old on the themes of bees and pollination, biodiversity, the garden and trees. Disneyland Paris’ involvement in these activities is a sign of its commitment to the local community and to working not only to protect the environment but also to inspire future generations.

Encouraging Cast Members to take action                                                                                               

For the second year running, the Cast Memberland department, which organises events and activities for Disneyland® Paris Cast Members, has renewed its “Garden Plots” project, run in collaboration with the Nature and Environment team. This initiative allows fifteen teams of resort Cast Members from different departments to tend to a 4m² plot of land located backstage for a one year period, assisted by Disneyland Paris’ gardeners. This allows fledgling gardeners to discover the joy of gardening and learn from the experts, and for more experienced gardeners to share their passion with their co-workers. The members of the Nature and Environment team also enjoy having the opportunity to share their knowledge and showcase their expertise. As the majority of Disneyland Paris Cast Members live in urban areas, the project aims to allow them to reconnect with nature in a fun way, discussing and debating with others.

Publicising and promoting Disneyland Paris’ natural heritage

Since 1995 the Nature and Environment department has been running guided tours (in French) of Disneyland Paris green spaces. These Hortitours give detailed presentations covering landscape design, techniques for plant maintenance, tree pruning etc. These plant-themed visits of Disneyland Paris are a way of discovering the resort’s natural curiosities and promoting Disneyland Paris’s natural heritage and expertise. These tours are for groups of 8 – 20 people, mostly pupils from schools or horticultural colleges, but also older guests and horticultural enthusiasts. The content of the visit is modified according to the group. The Hortitours take place in the mornings and are conducted by the park’s gardeners with one guide for every 8 people. More info on : dlp.hortitour@disney.com

  1. Hi, there! I’m from Brazil, and I’ll be at DisneylandParis on my 40th birthday with my family (a husband and 3 daughters). May I have my “magical birthday ever”? This include a character? How I order it? We’re ordering a 1day/2parks ticket, and we have a doubt about the time of Paris Express. It leaves Disnenyland at 8pm, is that time AFTER the fireworks and night parade? We’re very excited with this family travel,and we’ll be waiting ansiously for your reply

  2. Wonderful article, please more like this!

    I’ve never seen that castle elevation artwork before, could you post it in a higher resolution? Would love to thoroughly investigate the details of it.

    Kind regards

It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed information. Wonderful read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.|

  5. What’s the point of attracting adults and “reconnecting them with childhooh emotions and memories” if once they’re there you’ll treat them like they’re not welcome?
    Maybe the problem is not our perception is wrong. Maybe the problem is you really don’t want us to go.

  6. There’s a Santa Fe style hotel? Oh my! Will have to go back and stay there! Only hotel I had time to see on my first visit was the Disneyland Hotel on my way into the park to see Captain Eo after it re-opened in June 2010. I was on a one-day visit via the Eurostar from London (on holiday there from Australia) so very limited time – too limited. But I loved it.

  7. I’ve been 4 times to Disneyland Paris in the last 3 years and each time the service has been absolutely dredful and not even apologetic – would love to see how this changes.

  11. Actually, you can do this in a one-liner:$( .table tr:even’).addClass( highlight’);That sotceler finds all tr’s which are directly under any element with the table’ class, and the filter only matches every other tr element.

  12. Also my question:-) Is there a way to buy something although i’m not working at Disneyland Paris?

  13. So, so sad to see this icon show close! I first saw it in California in 1987 and was blown away by what was then incredible 3D technology, as well as Michael’s performance. When I visited Disneyland Paris for the first (and thus far, only) time on 24 June 2010 I was on a EuroStar day trip to the park from London which I was visiting for Michael Jackson 1st anniversary events with his UK fans. When I heard that Disneyland Paris and other Disney Parks were re-opening the film as a tribute to Michael, I HAD to make the journey across the channel to see it again. Needless to say, I made the most of the opportunity for repeat screenings on that day. And though I’ve since seen it repeatedly in Anaheim and Tokyo (shortly before it closed there last year) I’ll never, ever forget seeing it on the big screen for the first time since the 80s at Disneyland Paris. I’m not sure I want to go back now. 🙁

  14. It’s a shame this classic has to go, really!
    I’m glad I got the chance to experience it once again with the tribute performance.

    It was not quite the same since many of the original effects and the look and feel of the cinema were missing, still the old 3D glasses/technique and and analogue! print/and projector was used, which was and is kind of lazy from Disney. Also, the print was very worn out the last time I’ve seen it and should have been replaced long ago.

    But, still better than no Captain EO.

    Since Captain EO will never return to the Disney parks, please release a worthy blu-ray of this classic masterpiece (in 3D and 2D). I’m sure plenty of Disney-, Michael Jackson-, Anjelica Huston, Franics Ford Coppola- and George Lucas-Fans would buy it in an instant!

    I sure would!

  15. Why oh why is this closing?

    Have seen it several times at Disneyland Paris in the last couple of years and and each showing was packed out! Judging by everyone’s reaction on the way out, the audience clearly loved both the film and its effects.

    Bad decision, Disney 🙁

  16. The reason it has closed is that jardly anyone watches. Figures have dwindled and have been for years. It has been declining in the mast few years. Everyone moans and groans but it costs Disney to keep it running and if the audiences ain’t coming, who can afford to keep it.

  17. between Oxford and CambridgeONSet the price of a $268look on approximately $358 and buyers will flip away. While you are it true the quick gladness in a bestthe states in the nation with such as AC Milan red and black

  18. Would it be possible to meet with some one in hr on the 2nd idecember2015 to discuss student placement with you. Students would be 18 plus studying travel and tourism funded via Erasmus
    Kind regards

  19. We used these just after Christmas. Such a vast improvement since our last visit in summer 2014. Well done! I still had to wait from about 9am to get a good spot in the queue, but then we only waited about 10 minutes in the actual pavilion, as opposed to 70 minutes last time!

  20. We had a wonderfull new years evening at euro disney 2015 – 2016!!!!
    It was fantastic!!
    Thank you!

  21. Will the foliage be refurbished? Many leaves and small branches are missing and spoil the attraction so hopefully these will be refurbished.

  22. Hello We are a family of 4 with my husband and 2 children.I am 32 weeks pregnant.With the easy access card will I have access to attractions with my family.

  23. would changing the perception around DP to attract adults or a particular age groups not be at the expense of other age groups eg kids, teenagers.

  24. What a shame that they cast aside the park’s heritage, people’s memories and their love of DLP by destroying the named stones and replacing them with bland slabs.
    There were a few broken and loose ones, but surely they could have been kept and relayed to a better standard than they had previously.
    It has really dampened our DLP experience. What next? Removal of the castle?

  25. it’sasmallworld is more beautifulthan before.

    I will ride to it’s a smallworld during go to disneyland paris.

  30. Not Impressed! Big Thunder mountain is one of my favorite Disney Rides! Shut! Simlarly, the Star Wars events are apparently unavailable.No mention of these attractions being shut when my booking was made in June. My grandson, for whom we arranged this trip, has extatically reached the height limit, and a star wars addict/devotee will now be denied these pleasures. Will there be a refund/discount offered?
