Disney Studios Paris
Construction- Part 4
To the left of Lights, Camera, Hollywood is the Art
Deco designed Production Courtyard area, there are five attractions
· Disney Channel Studios
· Special Effects - Armageddon
· Rock and Roller Coaster
Action - Stunt Show
Disney describes the Cinemagique attraction as, "The
universe of animated films recreated in a pavilion in which the secrets
and magic of Disney's animation are revealed. Guests will be able to
test their talents in this great tradition by Walt Disney and his animators."
The full roof is now in place, details have been applied, and the outside
has been painted.
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 should open before the rest
of the park.
Very little is known about the special effects tour
other from the fact that it will contain a section based on the film
Armageddon. There are no photos available of this building as it is
hidden in the center of the park.
The main thrill attraction at the park is the Rock
'n' Roller Coaster, believed to be a carbon copy of the ride at Disney
/ MGM Studios in Florida. You see a history of its construction in the
following set of shots. Since the building is now complete and sealed
from prying eyes, this is the last view of the track until we get to
ride it in 2002.

The last area in the Production Courtyard is also
the biggest. The stadium for the Motors
Action - Stunt Show is
large, fully seated and covered. The setting for the show is a Mediterranean
village, which you can see is well underway. The stunt show is being
choreographed by the famous French stunt director Rémy Julienne,
who has worked on over 60 international films, including the James Bond
thriller License to Kill.
Come back to MousePlanet every month to see the progress
