Disneyland ® Paris is dedicated to offering guests exceptional experiences of the highest quality by investing in innovative new experiences while refurbishing existing assets. In 2015, Disneyland Paris entered an ambitious three-year renovation program of 10 of its iconic attractions and shows. The objective is to reinvent the magic and create new innovating experiences for guests. In line with this program, the attraction Space Mountain: Mission 2 was entirely renovated that same year. The attraction, as well as the Vidéopolis® Theatre and the happiest cruise on earth "it's a small world" all renewed with their former splendor. In 2014 the resort added a new ingredient to its recipe for a magical experience with the exclusive opening of the immersive and enchanting ride Ratatouille : L'Aventure Totalement Toquée de Remy. The attraction and its chic Parisian-inspired setting offer families an exciting experience based on the hugely successful Disney • Pixar movie Ratatouille. 2015 was also the year of live shows with two new exceptional shows that enchanted guests. Throughout the summer, Elsa, Anna and all the characters from the world of Arendelle stole the show in the musical Frozen Sing-Along, presented daily at The Chaparral Theater in the Disneyland ® Park. Star Wars™ amateurs lived a unique experience at Discoveryland, with the interactive Jedi Training Academy show, presented at Videopolis. Young Padawans between the ages of 7 and 12 learned during each of the sessions to handle the lightsaber next to a Jedi Master before facing the terrible Darth Vader.
Disneyland Paris is dedicated to acting in an ethical manner, championing the well-being of children and inspiring lasting and positive change in its community. That community support is possibly most visible through the Disney VoluntEARS program, a company-sponsored initiative supporting employee volunteerism. In 2015, the 1,158 Disney VoluntEARS from Disneyland Paris donated 15,769 hours to their community. They were involved in close to 1,000 different activities including the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the Secours populaire français association, a partner of Disneyland Paris for over 20 years. For this special anniversary, 7,000 children from the association and their families were invited during the days of solidarity in the Parks, to experience the Disney magic. The Disney VoluntEARS are also involved in major solidarity events designed to raise awareness and funds for important local and national causes.
Disneyland Paris has always sought to have a positive social and economic impact on its community. In 2012 the French government published a socio-economic contribution study (1989-2011) that highlighted significant ways in which the destination has created employment, tax revenues and other contributions to the nation and the local area. The resort has created more than 55,000 direct, indirect and induced jobs. Furthermore, between 1992 and 2011, the destination generated €50 billion for the French economy in added value and €5.3 billion in state revenues. Disneyland Paris represents a positive economic investment as each euro invested by the state generated €10 in private investment.
Disneyland Paris is committed to striking a sustainable balance between protecting the environment and growing its business. Its long-term goal is to set the standard in sustainability for companies in the European leisure and tourism industry.
The resort has set ambitious goals to manage its impact and inspire its guests to help preserve the planet’s resources. The cornerstones of this approach are conserving water, energy, and ecosystems; reducing waste and greenhouse gas emissions, and inspiring others to take action for the environment.
That commitment is visible in the resort’s new wastewater treatment and recycling plant – the first to be installed by a European theme park operator. In the 2 years it has been up and running, the station has saved over 130 million US gallons of drinking water – equivalent to the average consumption of 3,335 French households.
