Five Things You Should Know Before Visiting Disneyland Paris

I am pleased to announce that I am writing for my 4th major Disney-related site: The DIS. This will be fun for me as it will allow for a different style of writing. My posts on The DIS will be largely opinion pieces, with the teensiest of Disney history thrown in. Enjoy!

In December of 1985, Michael Eisner and Frank Wells (Disney’s then-CEO and COO, respectively) signed a letter of intent with then-French Prime Minister Laurent Fabius to build the Euro Disney project in Marne-la-VallĂ©e, France. On March 24, 1987, Eisner and then-Prime Minister Jacques Chirac signed an agreement stipulating that construction move forward. On April 12, 1992, the Euro Disney Resort opened.

Since opening day the resort has undergone several name changes, welcomed a second park, and dealt with some vexatious financial moments. It has persevered, however, and to this day remains one of the top tourist destinations in all of Europe.
