Disneyland Park (Paris)
Disneyland Park, originally Euro Disneyland (French: Parc Disneyland), is the first of two theme parks built at Disneyland Paris in Marne-la-Vallée, France, opened on 12 April 1992. Designed and built by Walt Disney Imagineering, its layout and attractions are similar to Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California and Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World in Bay Lake, Florida. Spanning 56.656 ha (140 acres) (the largest Disney park based on the original,) it is dedicated to fairy tales and Disney characters. In 2011, the park hosted approximately 10,990,000 visitors, making it the most-visited theme park in Europe, and the fifth-most visited theme park in the world.
The park is represented by Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant, a replica of the fairy tale castle seen in Sleeping Beauty.
