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 Tokyo 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 Vallée 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. The 25th anniversary of the resort was on April 12th 2017. Many events and attractions helped celebrate this milestone for the most visited theme park in Europe and second most visited sight in Paris behind Notre Dame with 9 800 000 visitors in 2018.
