History[ edit ] Seeking a location for a European resort[ edit ] Following the success of Disneyland in California and Walt Disney World in Florida, plans to build a similar theme park in Europe emerged In Under the leadership of E. Cardon WalkerTokyo Disneyland opened in in Japan with instant success, forming a catalyst for international expansion.
In late the heads of Disney's theme park division, Dick Nunis and Jim Cora, presented a list of approximately 1, possible European locations for the park. Britain, France, Italy and Spain were all considered. However, Britain and Italy were dropped from the list due to both lacking a suitable expanse of flat land.
By Marchthe number of possible locations for the park had been reduced to four; two in France and two in Spain. Both nations saw the potential economic advantages of a Disney theme park and offered competing financing deals to Disney.
Both Spanish sites were located near the Mediterranean and offered a subtropical climate similar to Disney's parks in California and Florida. Disney had asked each site to provide average temperatures for every month for the previous 40 years, which proved a complicated endeavour as none of the records were computerised and were registered on paper.
The pleasing landscape of that region, as well as its climate, made the location a top competitor for what would be called Euro Disneyland. However, shallow bedrock was encountered beneath the site, which would have rendered construction too difficult.
Michael EisnerDisney's CEO at the time, signed the first letter of agreement with the French government for the square-kilometre 4,acre site on 18 Decemberand the first financial contracts were drawn up during the following spring.
The final contract was signed by the leaders of the Walt Disney Company and the French government and territorial collectivities on 24 March Construction began in Augustand in Decemberan information centre named "Espace Euro Disney" was opened to show the public what was being constructed.
Through the hotel is the entrance ticket hall to the Park. In order to provide lodging to patrons, it was decided that 5, Disney-owned hotel rooms would be built within the complex.
SternStanley Tigermanand Robert Venturi decided on an exclusively American theme in which each hotel would depict a region of the United States.
At the time of the opening in Aprilseven hotels collectively housing 5,  rooms had been built. With its towers of oxidised silver and bronze-coloured stainless steel under a canopy of lights, it opened as Festival Disney.
In order to accomplish this, 29 restaurants were built inside the park with a further 11 restaurants built at the Euro Disney resort hotels and five at Festival Disney.
Menus and prices were varied with an American flavour predominant and Disney's precedent of serving alcoholic beverages was continued in the park.
In test kitchens at Walt Disney World, recipes were adapted for European tastes. Walter Meyer, executive chef for menu development at Euro Disney and executive chef of food projects development at Walt Disney World noted, "A few things we did need to change, but most of the time people kept telling us, 'Do your own thing.
Casting centres were set up in ParisLondonand Amsterdam.
However, it was understood by the French government and Disney that "a concentrated effort would be made to tap into the local French labour market". Following precedent, Euro Disney set up its own Disney University to train workers. Critics, who included prominent French intellectuals, denounced what they considered to be the cultural imperialism of Euro Disney and felt it would encourage an unhealthy American type of consumerism in France.
It is we who adore it, who adopt its fashions and above all, its words. We are who we are. French labour unions mounted protests against the appearance code, which they saw as "an attack on individual liberty".Top Rated Plus.
