Also most countries at the time had a weekly Disney tv program that had segments about the coming Disneyland. Then there are the big Disney magazines in a lot of countries that had comics and reporting about it. The opening week there was a European wide cover of the Disney magazines. Like this: I.N.D.U.C.K.S. (At the bottom of the page you can see all covers). In some European countries these magazines are amongst the most widely read. Also there were the stand alone comic books about Euro Disney. There was even a board game!
The hype was slightly overshadowed by the news segments about angry farmers and stuff like that though.
