While the domestic Disney Parks are certainly some of the best places in the world to enjoy the Disney experience, they are by no means the only places one can do so. Another wonderful place to immerse yourself in the world of Disney is Disneyland Paris. Disneyland Paris is situated about 20 miles east of Paris, France; it was originally called Euro Disney Resort when it opened in 1992 but was later renamed Disneyland Paris in 1995.

The Disney Resort is home to Parc Disneyland and Walt Disney Studios Park, as well as a shopping, dining, and entertainment complex called Disney Village. Disneyland Park is home to five themed lands, each with its own attractions and entertainment: Main Street, U.S.A., Adventureland, Fantasyland, Frontierland, and Discoveryland. Walt Disney Studios Park focuses on the world of movies and television and includes areas such as Production Courtyard, Toon Studio, and Backlot.
