Oo la la! A look at Disney in France
Disneyland Paris: Unique Journeys - A photo essay by Ian Parkinson

Salon Mickey- Part 1

In May 2001, I had the pleasure of visiting Salon Mickey at Disneyland Paris with a Euro Disney shareholder (Euro Disney being the official company trading name). This small but very beautiful lounge was originally opened as a welcome area for VIPs, but it was recently converted to cater to visiting shareholders.

The lounge is located at the entrance to the park, right next door to the re-entry turnstiles. It is very close to the entrance to the Disneyland Hotel and the Annual Passport office. As you can see in the photograph below, a simple canopy and the words "Salon Mickey" mark the entrance. The lounge opens about an hour before the standard park opening time, with breakfast served until noon.

Once you pass through the pink double doors, you enter a small area where a cast member takes your shareholder card and park entry ticket from you. The walls are decorated in wonderful wallpaper with a very large and detailed border. The furniture, drapes, plants and details are everything you would expect at the Paris park, and more.

Once you are greeted by the cast member, you are welcomed into the main room, which is themed like a Victorian drawing room. In the centre of the room is a black coffee table surrounded by comfy chairs and a sofa. A splendid fireplace takes centre position on the main wall with seating areas on either side.

Along the opposite wall to the fireplace is a small table used to serve a selection of breakfast pastries. As you can see in the photos, the room is filled with photographs and ornaments.

At the back of the room is the entrance to the rest room, a small refrigerator, a hot drinks area, and most importantly for the kids in your party, a TV set showing Disney movies.
