After being removed some time ago, the large gold emblems featuring the Disney Parks around the world have returned to their rightful places in Disney Village at Disneyland Paris.
Gold Emblems Back in Disney Village
Located at the heart of Disneyland Paris, Disney Village is the retail, dining, and entertainment complex between the theme parks and Disney hotels.
Walls recently came down near the new security checkpoint, marking the end of the work near the parks and the return of these ground emblems.
These emblems can be found embedded in the ground towards the end of the shopping district, just steps away from Walt Disney Studios and Disneyland Paris.
The six emblems each represent the Disney Resorts around the world.
Each emblem includes the resort’s logo, location, opening date, and distance in kilometers from Disneyland Paris.
Instead of a distance marker, the Disneyland Paris emblem simply includes the second star to the right from “Peter Pan.”
Construction walls came down in this area earlier this month, marking the end of pavement work near the parks.
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.
A new McDonald’s is also coming to the shopping and entertainment district.
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.
