Disney Village to Receive Overdue Refurbishment

The current state of Disney Village (Disneyland Paris’ version of Downtown Disney/Disney Springs) isn’t up to Disney’s standards. It features a mix-match of designs ranging from the colourful poppy style of the 90s to a cartoonish art-deco. It also falters with its maintenance, which is why a refurbishment is long overdue.

But Disney has finally announced that the area will be given a phased refurbishment which will see a complete transformation of the area with new dining options and refreshed shopping and entertainment offerings.

Disney Village is an integral part of the resort. It serves as the entrance to most Disneyland Paris hotels, and Disney will make it even grander by adding a lakeside park and boardwalk, enhanced walkways, terraces and patios.

The first phase of the refurbishment will be the replacement of the Cafe Mickey restaurant with Rosalie, a contemporary French brasserie. The two-floored restaurant will have 500 seats and will celebrate renowned French “Art de Vivre”.

Also part of the major €2 billion expansion of Disneyland Paris is a new Frozen-themed land at Walt Disney Studios Park, which has just started construction!
