Following the announcement of Disneyland Paris’s phased reopening starting July 15, construction and refurbishment work for ongoing projects resume this week across the resort. This relaunch includes including works at the Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel as well as projects developed by the local Walt Disney Imagineering team, such as future Land Avengers Campus and upcoming attractions Cars Route 66 Road Trip and Disney Junior Dream Factory.
“I’m very happy to welcome back our Cast Members, Imagineers and contractors to restart construction work on exciting new experiences to entertain and delight guests for years to come,” said Natacha Rafalski, President of Disneyland Paris.
The health and safety of Imagineers and the many Cast Members, contractors and vendors on various job sites remains the top priority. To that end, the Construction team at Imagineering Paris has put in place enhanced precautionary measures such as the wearing of face coverings and physical distancing which reflect guidance from the French government, health authorities and industry peers.
“We are thrilled to gradually ramp up these construction sites and do what we are passionate about – creating new Disney magic for guests to enjoy,” said David Wilson, Site Portfolio Executive for Walt Disney Imagineering in Paris. “We are grateful for the continued dialogue with French authorities, as well as for the unwavering trust of our industry partners and vendors who have proven to be resilient and agile, enabling us to progress on other aspects of these new attractions and experiences over the past several months.”
Some of the works includes two brand-new experiences at Walt Disney Studios Park where guests can live new adventures: Disney Junior Dream Factory and Cars Route 66 Road Trip. These hand-picked stories which appeal to young children will mark a first step in the transformation and reinvention of the park. Work has also resumed on the nearly complete Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel, a reimagined four-star hotel with contemporary New York style, and on Avengers Campus at Walt Disney Studios Park.
