Disneyland: photos, description (Disneyland)

Disneyland Paris is one of the most popular attractions not only in France but throughout Europe. People often prefer this theme Park the Louvre or the Eiffel tower.

But the Park could be in another country. After the huge success of the Japanese Disneyland "Walt Disney" has decided that this experience should be repeated in Europe. The consideration was offered about 1200 seats for construction, all in different countries. Finally left four: two in Spain and two in France. The Spaniards and the French fought desperately for the right to provide the land for Disneyland and to help its economy; the Spaniards, almost won the fight already boasted that Mickey mouse is wearing a sombrero and not take.

However, the French still won. Not the last role in this victory played location: the town of Marne-La-vallée, where doneebze, located near Paris, almost in the center of Europe, it is convenient to bring visitors from other countries.

While officials fought for Disneyland, French intellectuals opposed it. Called it a cultural Chernobyl, threatening to ruin the French way of life and replace it with the us, and dreamed that "the rebels set fire to Disneyland.

No, the rebels did not fire, the Park was opened in 1992. He is 19 square kilometers, there are two areas, seven hotels, shops, restaurants and even a Golf course. Among the most popular attractions - a terrible roller-coaster "Space mountain: mission 2", "Big Thunder", "Indiana Jones" journey through the pirate world, "pirates of the Caribbean" and absolutely not scary, peaceful trip on a boat to the song "It's a small world". 60 rides designed for different ages. The kids are delighted, meeting actors in the costumes of Peter pan, Cinderella, Aladdin, Donald duck and other disney characters.

The French still wrinkle my nose and say something like, ugh, Disneyland, who needs it! Despite many financial difficulties (calculations of absolute success did not materialize, and accidents (rare, but they happen) the Park needed a huge amount of visitors - about 12 million a year. There is always a crowd in line for the ride you can stand an hour, or even two, but many come here on time - even adults. And if a tourist arrived in Paris with a child, he is unlikely to avoid visiting the famous Park.

Disneey use the term "magic of Disney". In these two words the whole policy of the Park: it's not just the dizzying rides screaming visitors get a dose of adrenaline. The magic of Disney includes the always smiling staff, the music, colorful parades, cartoon characters, and even the rule that all the backstage work that needs to be hidden from visitors. When a tourist goes to main street Park leading to the castle of Sleeping Beauty, it doesn't matter how old he is, still he is waiting for pleasure.
