Disneyland Paris ‘literally falling apart’

More than 5,000 people including many Brits, have signed a petition to ‘Save Disneyland Paris’ claiming that the resort has been ‘seriously damaged’ and that it’s ‘literally falling apart’.

The magical kingdom has brought joy to millions since it opened in France in 1992. However, many feel that neglect has allowed the site to fall into disrepair, with many of the rides being broken, the food being awful and many of the stage shows cancelled. The petition claims that it is not living up to the Disney standard.

One of the Brits to sign the petition was Jake Howarth from London. According to the Daily Mail, he said: “I have long been a visitor to Disneyland Paris, and over the last few years have sadly seen a decline in a number of things, all of which have been mentioned in the petition. What strikes me about all of the Disney resorts I have visited is that, no matter where people are from, the one thing that remains the same world over is the Disney magic.”

He added: “Therefore, I feel it is unfair that Disneyland Paris has been allowed to decline so sadly, and its visitors are allowed to experience what I believe is now an inferior experience.The news follows last year’s strike by many characters claiming that pay was too low, and a fine of 150,000 euros for allegedly spying on potential employees.”

The petition has been sent to Bob Iger, chief executive of the Walt Disney Corporation in California who is currently yet to respond. What is clear though, is that it’s a sad state of affairs for what is one of Europe’s biggest tourist attractions.The last thing you want as a family is to shell out for transport, accommodation and travel insurance to go to a Disney park, only to find that it is not what you expected. That’s not quite the magic you would expect from Disney.
