Disneyland Paris is a beautiful park which has suffered a series of challenges, including declining attendance. It’s also a park in the middle of a major anniversary celebration. Let’s take a look at the resort and see how things are going during the 25th birthday of Disneyland Paris.
To begin, an announcement that will change many things about the development of the Disneyland Paris Resort. In the coming months, the Walt Disney Company will take over full ownership of the resort. It is an entertainment city that the TWDC (The Walt Disney Company) buys for just over 220 million euros. That’s a great deal for two parks and recently renovated hotels.
It will be interesting to see how TWDC restructures the resort, its operations, and executive structure. Disneyland has not had a major new attraction since Space Mountain opened in 1995. In addition, the Walt Disney Studios park is in need of a complete placemaking project and DCA level redesign. Disney Village (Downtown Disney) is also in need of a complete refresh. AND, the question of the third park must be addressed before 2030, date when Disney loses its rights on some land if the development is not done in accordance with the commitment with the French state.
Disneyland Paris will need to be maintained and run at least as well as Disney’s other fully company owned parks in the United States.

A brand-new street salesman has arrived in the park. He sells sweets, fruit and beverages (including lemonade) with the ability to move around in the park. The vehicle is very ergonomic. It’s perfect.

At Discoveryland, the Buzz Lightyears Laser blast attraction should return without Fastpass this summer. This is also to reduce operating costs.
