Walt Disney Studios Park is the second theme park of Disneyland Paris. At Walt Disney Studios Park guests can take a look behind the screens of Hollywood and European productions.
Disneyland Paris’ second gate was originally scheduled to open in 1996 but due to the disappointing visitor numbers, the plans were put into hold. After finally making a profit, plans for Disney-MGM Studios Europe were dusted off and redesigned to the current Walt Disney Studios Park. However the size of the park was significantly scaled back, as well as the level of theming and number of attractions. When the park finally opened in 2002, the park failed to bring in guests. Those who did were disappointed by the lack of theming and classic Disney attractions.
After 5 years of struggling to bring in guests, the park’s Animation Courtyard zone was transformed into Toon Studio with more theming and 2 new attractions: Cars Race Rally and Crush’s Coaster. Not long after that The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror along with the Hollywood Boulevard opened. Smaller additions were added like Stitch Live! and Disney Junior Live on Stage and an entire new zone opened in Toon Studio along with 3 new attractions: Toy Story Playland.
In 2014 the expansion of Walt Disney Studios Park continued with the brand new and unique attraction Ratatouille: L’Aventure Totalement Toquée de Rémy and its beautiful La Place de Rémy and restaurant Bistrot Chez Rémy. Currently there are only 17 attractions in Walt Disney Studios Park compared to 49 at Disneyland Park.
