At Disneyland Paris, Main Street, U.S.A., an iconic promenade encapsulates the charm of early 20th-century American small towns. Serving as the inaugural “themed land” upon entry to numerous Disney theme parks globally, it offers visitors a picturesque setting for leisurely shopping and strolling.

An alarming discovery has been made that could have been far worse had Disney Park not been noticed sooner.

Part of the Main Street Station underpass has been roped off after an issue with a set element.
DLP Report on X reported on April 20 that a portion of Disneyland Paris’s Main Street, U.S.A., had been roped off following what they, at the time, were calling an “issue with a set element.” After about an hour, it was discovered that the “issue” was a structural problem found in the foundation of the upper portion of the area, which you can see in the photo below:
