“This much-anticipated day is the result of an incredible team effort, from our cast members who are at the heart of the magic of our resort, to our public partners who have continued to provide us with invaluable support,” said Natacha Rafalski.

“Today marks the beginning of a new chapter at Disneyland Paris, where giving our guests the opportunity to share happy moments with family and friends has never been more meaningful.”

“The reopening of Disneyland Paris is also a chance to continue the resort’s ongoing commitment to support its local communities.”
