One year after the opening of Tokio Disneyland in 1983, a list of 1200 possible locations in Europe was established. In 1985, the number of possible locations had been reduced to two in France and two in Spain. In fierce competition with Barcelona in Spain, Marne la Vallee won the competition thanks to its proximity to Paris, central location in Europe and government support.
