The Disneyland Park is a theme park of the Walt Disney Company, located in France, in the sector of Val d'Europe in Marne-la-Vallée at Seine-et-Marne, which opened its doors on 12 April 1992. It is a part of the entertainment complex Disneyland Paris formerly Euro Disney Resort.
The theme park is firstly called Euro Disneyland until 1 st October 1994 , then Disneyland Paris in 2002 when it acquired its present name of Disneyland park. These successive changes of name symbolize the difficulty of the park to find its identity and attendance. The park don’t belong directly to the Walt Disney Company, but Euro Disney Associés SNC is held by Euro Disney SCA . The name Disneyland Paris, formerly used to designate the park, now poses a problem of confusion with renaming the complex Disneyland Resort Paris in Disneyland Paris in May 2009.
The park is an " enchanted kingdom " designed by Walt Disney Imagineering, subsidiary of Disney devising and overseeing the construction of parks and Disney attractions. Under the name of enchanted kingdom, it resumed the radial plane of Disneyland over 550,000 m2
The castle, symbol of the park, is that of Sleeping Beauty as Disneyland but it adopts a more extravagant architecture inspired by the works of the « Very Rich Hours of the Duke of Berry » and by the slenderness of Mont-Saint-Michel. The castles of the other Disney parks are designed quite realistically. But in Europe, the castles are a part of daily life for Americans or Asian, so it was decided to build a castle out of a fairy tale, less realistic but more enchanting.
The park’s entrance is made firstly by the Fantasia Gardens in front of the Disneyland Hotel, a set of gardens with a central pool. 64 wickets in the hotel allow to enter the park via the "station" of Main Street USA.
Main Street USA
Walt 's Main Street USA Restaurant
Located behind the station Disneyland Railroad, Main Street USA is the main street of the park with shops and restaurants. The visitor arrives at the place of Town Square. The theme is newer than 10 years compared to Disneyland, from where the presence of electric lamps at the end of the street. An unusual feature is the use of the silhouette of the Railway Station of Disneyland for the facade of the building located right on Town Square and that serves as a garage and stables for vehicles of Main Street.
The Emporium is located like in other Disney parks on the left and the photographer on the right. Then the shops are arranged as in other parks. An interesting fact showing the attention paid to the culinary arts is the presence of a restaurant at each corner of the last two blocks of the street. The Walt 's and the Market House Deli at the street transversal then the Casey's Corner (on the left) and the Victoria's Home-Style Restaurant (ex Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlour) (on the right) with terraces in the main square of the Castle.
At the end of the avenue is the Central Plaza, the central square of the park. Normally, a bed of flowers decorates the center of the "roundabout". However, the site has undergone many changes at any time. we could see a statue for Christmas in ice of Sorcerer Mickey, some giant, bright Christmas balls in beds falsely under snow, a giant pumpkin covers a makeup booth or a replica of the house of the land of lions for the launch of the show The Legend of the Lion King. the Scenes are from time to time installed, on which various performances occur, particularly in the celebration of St. Patrick (an Irish dance show happened here, but now at the Castle Theatre) , for Christmas (one Ceremony of illumination of all the decorations on Main Street and the castle) and more recently for the 15 th birthday.
But the country is also unique because Main Street is the only one where we can go behind the shops. On each side of the street, it is a covered street : on the left, the Liberty Arcade and on the right side, Discoveryland, the Discovery Arcade .
Main Street USA is also a tribute to its creators because of the windows of first-floor. They include advertising texts that munch the artists as traders and exercisers of a free profession.
