Disneyland Paris is collaborating with over 50 artists –from Marvel Comics and Marvel Studios– to showcase the wealth of the Marvel universe: comic book covers, posters, illustrations from films, storyboards, original sketches and more.

This unprecedented renovation will also include the refurbishment and modernisation of all the rooms, which will reflect the sophisticated urban style of Tony Stark’s tastes. All rooms (including 471 Superior Rooms) showcase several Marvel artworks and the 65 Empire State Club Rooms have extra facilities.

Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel also boasts 25 spacious Suites, paying vibrant homage to the iconic heroes – the Avengers and Spider-Man: referenced in the design of the furnishings in some of the Suites, and the walls showcase spectacular works by Marvel artists, some of them specially created.

Disneyland Paris welcomes children from the association Pêcheur de Lune to experience the magic of Disney’s Enchanted Christmas

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]In the setting of a winter wonderland, the Disney VoluntEARS—the employee volunteers of Disneyland Paris—welcomed 100 children from French and Belgian hospitals this weekend. The children immersed themselves in the world of Disneyland Paris’s Enchanted Christmas, attending the Starlit Princess Waltz, as well as other experiences at the park including Disney’s Christmas Parade and the Disney Illuminations night-time show.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]On 16 November 2019, more than one hundred children from Reine Fabiola Hospital and other Belgian hospitals working in collaboration with the Belgian non-profit Pêcheur de Lune ASBL, as well as from the Robert Debré Hospital in Paris, visited Disneyland Park for Disney’s Enchanted Christmas season. The children had the opportunity to experience unforgettable moments, magical shows and lively encounters with the help of Disney VoluntEARS, all part of the longstanding commitment at Disneyland Paris to bring magic to hospitalised children year-round.

The children and their families started their extraordinary day by enjoying the attractions in both Disney Parks with our Disney VoluntEARS—the employee volunteers from Disneyland Paris who give their time-off for charitable actions.

They then gathered at the Walt Disney Studios Park where they watched a special showing of “Frozen: A Musical Invitation,” a brand-new interactive show inviting guests to sing iconic songs from the popular film.

Several other surprises awaited them at Disneyland Park where the children discovered “Starlit Princess Waltz” and “Disney’s Christmas Parade” from the comfort of specially reserved zones. This touch of magic gave them the opportunity to enjoy all the brilliance of Disney’s Enchanted Christmas throughout a day filled with excitement.

“We are delighted to return to Disneyland Paris for the tenth edition of our annual visit. The experience offered by Disneyland Paris enables them to set aside their worries, and experience moments of joy like other children their age,” said Xavier Ide, President of the non-profit Pecheur de Lune.

“Once again, we are very happy to have the opportunity to host children from hospitals for a magical experience at our park, thanks to the commitment of the Disney VoluntEARS,” said Richard Eltvedt, Director of Government Affairs at Disneyland Paris.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”13833″ img_size=”medium”][vc_column_text]The Disney VoluntEARS come together to give smiles to children

This initiative was made possible thanks to the Disney VoluntEARS, Disneyland Paris Cast Members who regularly participate in charitable actions: in 2018, more than 1,000 Cast gave more than 9,300 volunteer hours.

Year-round, the Disney VoluntEARS organise volunteer actions in paediatric hospitals, and recently Mickey and Minnie traveled to Brussels with Disney VoluntEARS to bring magic to the children at Queen Fabiola Hospital.  And in France, Robert Debré Hospital and Disneyland Paris have worked together for 28 years to regularly arrange visits from Disney characters and Disney VoluntEARS. Each one of these visits bring magical moments to the children at these hospitals.

Since 1991, before the Resort’s opening the following year, Disneyland Paris has worked hand in hand with hundreds of French and European hospitals to share its magic with thousands of children to offer them magical moments outside of their daily routines.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”13831″ img_size=”medium”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”13829″ img_size=”medium”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”13830″ img_size=”medium”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”13827″ img_size=”medium”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

120 Disney VoluntEARS et leurs familles

Family Volunteer Day at Disneyland Paris: 120 Disney VoluntEARS and family members wrap gifts donated by Cast Members and the company for 1500 children in hospitals across France

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”13856″ img_size=”medium”][vc_column_text]As a two-week-long toy drive came to an end, Disney VoluntEARS at Disneyland Paris gathered at Disney’s Newport Bay Club hotel this morning to wrap gifts for 1500 children in hospitals across France, all part of the company’s Family Volunteer Day.

Disney VoluntEARS—employee volunteers who contribute their free time to carrying out charitable actions inside and outside the park—spent their Saturday morning wrapping the toys with their families in the hotel’s convention centre.  The room was filled with the sounds of holiday jingles, the scent of pine from the Christmas tree, and the cheer of everyone in the room, all in an effort to bring smiles to children.

To ensure that children in hospitals across France will have a special surprise waiting for them for the holidays, Disneyland Paris Cast Members and the company both donated a total of 1500 toys. A total of 120 Disney VoluntEARS with their family members participated in the gift wrapping in celebration of Family Volunteer Day, recognised by all Disney Parks and Resorts on 23 November. As Christmas day approaches, the Disney VoluntEARS will distribute the gifts to several different hospitals across France.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”13857″ img_size=”medium”][vc_column_text]“The Disney VoluntEARS bring magic to children in hospitals with Mickey and Minnie throughout the year. The toy drive is a way for us to involve other Cast Members and to provide these children with gifts that can stay with them long after our visits,” said Richard Eltvedt, Director of Government Affairs. “As volunteers, Cast Members at Disneyland Paris have shared magic with children in hospitals across France since 1991, even before the park’s official opening.”

In addition to today’s gift wrapping, Disneyland Paris partnered with Benenova, an affiliate of the global non-profit network, Points of Light. Alongside Benenova volunteers, Cast Members sorted toys and clothes for families in need in Paris and in areas neighbouring the resort.

Family Volunteer Day serves to encourage volunteerism and quality family time—values at the core of Disneyland Paris and other Disney Parks around the worldthrough a global partnership between The Walt Disney Company and the international Points of Light non-profit network.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”13858″ img_size=”medium”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
