Disneyland stay

From the city, one day is a good compromise. A one day tour from a european city will be difficult. Count two days. Take the TGV to Disneyland Resort the first day (or fly to Charles de Gaulle Airport), spend your time at Disneyland, return home the next day.

Disneyland Paris 25 years

Following the success of Walt Disney World, opened in 1971 near Orlando in Florida, plans to build a theme park in Europe were first drawn in 1972. 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.

The first letter of agreement with the French government was signed in 1985 and the final contract in 1987. Construction began in 1988. On 12 April 1992, Euro Disney officially opened. Disneyland Paris welcomed its 200 millionth guest in 2008. Over 300 million guests have visited the resort in its 25 year history, including the opening of Space Mountain in 1995 and the inauguration of Walt Disney Studio in 2002. Th 25th anniversary of the resort is on April 12th 2017. Many events and attractions will help celebrate this milestone for the most visited theme park in Europe and second most visited sight in Paris behind Notre Dame.
