Oo la la! A look at Disney in France
Disney Studios Paris - Construction report by Ian Parkinson
ONE | TWO | THREE | FOUR

Photographs further in are a little more difficult to get. Below are more shots of other areas of the new park.

In the two shots below you can see the new costuming building used for both the new park (when it opens) and the existing park. This building is now in use and costumes are being transferred in stages from the existing storage. The rear of the building will form part of the Backstage Tour and leads to Catastrophe Canyon.

In the distance in the photos below you can see the steelwork that forms the cover for the audience in the Car Stunt Show. The building in the foreground is called Animagique, it is now believe that this building will contain a duplicate of the Animation attraction found at Disney's California Adventure. You can also see in the photos a large cone shape, this will become Sorcerer Mickey's hat.

In the distance in the photo below you can see the steelwork that will form the cover for the audience in the Car Stunt Show. The building in the foreground is called Animagique; again little is know about its contents at the moment.

In the very far distance of the above shot you can see a large completed building, this is Val d'Europe a joint venture between Disney and a French construction company. Val d'Europe is a large shopping; food and entertainment center and will include the largest 'Sealife Centre' indoor theme park in Europe. The first phase of Val d'Europe just opened in October, with more than 100,000 visitors on the first day.

Another new addition to the park is the loading area for the Backstage Tram Tour, you can see the beige steelwork in the centre of the photo below.

One of the first operational parts of the park to open will be the European Studios for the Disney Channel. Construction is well underway (as you can see below) and it is believed it will open a full year ahead of the rest of the park, around May 2001.
