Disneyland Paris is one of the most visited attractions that there is in France and is one of the reasons that some families look at Property for sale in France like the ones you can find at http://www.frenchpropertysearch.com either for a permanent move over to the continent or perhaps for a holiday home.
The resort in Paris is Europe’s version of the Disney world that can be found in America and it really is a wonderland for both adults and children alike and it is hard not to get swept along with the magical feeling that the resort seems to create.
If you have never visited the site, here are some interesting facts about the resort in which you can submerge yourself in all things Disney.
Space Mountain is one of the most popular rides and the one located in Paris is actually the fastest of all the other resorts and is the only one that goes upside-down. In order for the cars on the ride to travel they have to reach speeds of around 46 miles per hour and use the same technology that is used to propel jet fighter planes.
The site is very cleverly created using the same design concepts as are used in the filming industry. Main Street is constructed in such a way that the castle looks like it is further away than it actually is. This is all down to the design technique of forced perspective.
The parade by Mickey and his friends is one of the events that attracts lots of visitors and in order for the drivers of the floats to be able to see where they are driving, they use an arrangement of cameras to give them all round visibility of the outside of the float. There are some floats that even give off a beautiful aroma as they drive past the crowds. In order to light up all of the floats in their spectacular designs around 700,000 bulbs are used on the 13 floats.
As a little aside, did you know that there is only ever one Mickey Mouse on site at any given time? This is because Disney really wanted to create the excitement and illusion for children that the character truly exists and spends his time visiting people across the park. There are a total of around 250,000 costumes used at Disneyland Paris, with Mickey’s being one of these.
