Here is everything you need to know about this exciting virtual celebration!
A Disneyland Paris Ambassador took to social media to share about the virtual 29th Anniversary:
Join me on April 12 for an exclusive, virtual celebration as we look back together on 29 years of @DisneylandParis and talk about the exciting future that lies ahead! 🎉🎊
Some highlights will be a Walk the Park to discover the history of our Resort with Yves Benyeta from @WaltDisneyImagineering and Catherine Chevreux, Manager Consumer Insight who both joined us before the opening in ‘92! We’ll also look at the future with Imagineer Beth Clapperton and David Duffy, Vice President of Entertainment. Other exciting topics include the ongoing commitment of our Disney VoluntEARS and some great new Merchandise teasers. But that’s not all! We’ll also welcome one of our former Presidents, Philippe Bourguignon, for some President Talks with @NatachaRafalski! Who’s excited?! ✨
One of the more exciting events will be a Walk the Park where he will take viewers on a virtual tour of the Park, which will give those who can’t travel to Paris a chance to see their iconic Sleeping Beauty Castle and the spooky Phantom Manor, which is Disneyland Paris’s spin on The Haunted Mansion ride.
The virtual celebration will continue with a conversation with Yves Benyeta, a Creative Director at Walt Disney Imagineering who has worked on several Disney Parks. Prevete will also talk with Catherine Chevreux, Manager of Consumer Insight. Both Benyeta and Chevreux worked with Disney before Disneyland Paris opened in 1992. The Park was originally called EuroDisney, but changed its name in 2002.
The virtual celebration will also cover a variety of other topics, including Disney Paris’ commitment to their volunteer program, VoluntEARS, and a sneak peek at some exciting new merchandise coming to the Disneyland Paris Resort.
There will also be a conversation between former Disneyland Paris President, Philippe Bourguignon and the current President of Disneyland Paris, Natacha Rafalski.
Disneyland Paris has been closed since March 15, 2020, due to the spread of Covid-19 throughout the country and the world. The park did open for limited attendance in July, but then closed again in October when a new wave of Covid cases swept through France. Disneyland Paris was scheduled to open on April 2 but had to push the opening back to new lockdowns announced to help fight another spread of Covid.
