Did you know this week’s Tiggerific Tuesday #DisneyTrivia about Disneyland Resort Paris’ location?
Disneyland Resort Paris is located in Marne-la-Vallee, a suburb of Paris located approximately 20 miles to the east. Four locations were considered for the Resort’s placement, two in Spain and two in France. While Spain’s climate would have been more appealing, The Walt Disney Company and its partners felt France had more international draw. The alternative French location was in the southern portion of the country near Marseille and also offered a milder climate. However, the Paris location won out because the city was already an international tourist hotspot, it offered excellent road and rail links with major European cities, and had a large international airport within a 45-minute drive.
