A new McDonald’s location is coming to Disney Village at Disneyland Paris as part of the shopping and dining center’s ongoing reimagining.
Disney Village McDonald’s
Concept art reveals a modern look for the new McDonald’s, featuring greenery and M-shaped foliage, reminiscent of the completely rebuilt McDonald’s at Walt Disney World that opened in 2020.
The McDonald’s currently at Disney Village features the iconic golden arches over the entrance doors. This location will remain open while the new location is under construction.
DLP Works shared an image on X of approximately where the McDonald’s will be, deduced thanks to construction permits that show the demolition of some Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show barns and changes to the convention center entrance.
Construction is scheduled to begin in September 2024 and the new location will open in early 2026.
Disney Village Reimagining
The multi-year update to Disney Village was officially announced in 2022 and includes new stores and restaurants, as well as updates to pre-existing locations.
From early 2024 onwards and for a duration of two years, all the shops and facades from Disney Store to Disney Fashion Jr will be modified. These large-scale renovations will follow the opening of Rosalie, a new French-style brasserie, scheduled to open in December.
Here is more information from a Disneyland Paris press release earlier this year;
A fresh shopping experience
Construction work – that is scheduled to take approximately two years to complete – will be carried out in two phases to minimise the impact on guest experience at Disney Village. The first phase, from early 2024 to the following autumn, will include the transformation of Disney Fashion, Disney Fashion Jr, and The Disney Gallery. These shops, which will benefit from large, transparent windows to make them more visible from the main promenade, will be completely remodelled inside. Once completed, the shops will feature new shopping concepts such as Fashion & Lifestyle, Home Décor, Disney Art & Collectibles, and the major Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars franchises. The shops will include new layouts, fittings and decoration. The work also includes brand new facades to give Disney Village a new, more contemporary and inviting visual identity, with natural tones mixing wood, brick and metal, creating a dynamic and unified impression. Large awnings will also protect guests from inclement weather.
An inviting stroll sprinkled with Disney magic
Finally, in the main outdoor area, extensive work on the grounds, surrounding landscape and lighting will be carried out to prolong the celebration of treasured Disney stories and experiences that guests are able to enjoy throughout the Parks and hotels at the resort. Original graphics created exclusively for Disney Village, including unique contemporary visuals paying tribute to Disney characters and imaginary worlds, will ornate the main strip and the facades, continually surprising and enchanting visitors as only Disney can do.
“We are extremely pleased to be starting works on the north block of Disney Village soon, which will begin its extensive transformation over the next few months. In addition to a more harmonious stroll with touches of Disney magic thanks to brand new facades, a completely reinvented atmosphere and interiors, this project will also improve life behind the scenes and the comfort of our Cast Members and Disney Village Partner employees. We’re experiencing ambitious and exciting times, and I can’t wait to see the new Disney Village come to life for all our guests to enjoy,” said Bruno Chastain, Disney Village Director.
