On Saturday and Sunday September 15th and 16th, guests will discover Disneyland Paris in a new light with a brand new experience that focuses on architecture, history, gastronomy, and local artisanal trades. In addition to special guided tours organized just for the event (pre-registration only via site to be communicated later), a mobile app will be developed so that guests can learn more in a new interactive way about the inspiration behind Disneyland Park and some of its rare jobs. Playful and didactic at the same time, the app will be available for two days only, September 15th and 16th, on Android and iOS.
Since its opening, Disneyland Paris has been firmly rooted in European and French culture. References are numerous around the resort, from the fairy tales that inspired Disney classic films, the architectural style that pays homage to French sites, or gastronomy that is artfully represented in over 60 restaurants. Disneyland Paris boasts a strong multi-cultural identity, through attractions like Ratatouille : L’Aventure Totalement Toquée de Rémy, structures like Sleeping Beauty Castle, and events such as the Rendez-Vous Gourmand food fair. The resort also cherishes artisanal trades that are still being practiced around the Parks. Through this cultural identity and strong sense of tradition, Disneyland Paris has always valued the way of life, savoir-faire, heritage, and culture of France.
Disneyland Paris is home to over 500 job roles, including some unexpected ones such as coppersmiths, gilders, cabinet makers, and stained-glass makers. With over 30 rare artisanal trades on-site, Disneyland Paris contributes to perpetuating rich traditions, deeply rooted in French history. Across different domains, artisans at Disneyland Paris help to give guests an extraordinary and authentic experience while doing their part to preserve French culture.
The resort, which has just celebrated its 25th anniversary, and which generates 6% of France’s tourism income, has become an integral part of the French landscape for the millions of guests that visit each year.
