  • DLRP formal name??

    Working on a project where I need the formal name of Disneyland Paris and the Studios. I've searched the web, and this is what I've come up with. Does this look right for the formal name and location of Disneyland Paris?

    Disneyland Park at Disneyland Resort Paris
    Marne-la-Vallee, Chessy, France.

    Walt Disney Studios Park at Disneyland Resort Paris
    Marne-la-Vallee, Chessy, France.

    Thank you very much.

    For once, Wikipedia is actually helpful

      Wikipedia was my source. How funny! Thanks for the confirmation. Project is nothing special, i'm just working on a photo collage for each of the parks for a friend, and wanted to be as correct as possible with the Parks' names. Thanks for the help!!!!

        So you're at Disneyland Park, not Disneyland Paris?

          Correct.

            That is confusing since Disneyland Park is also the official name of the original Disneyland. I much prefer they drop the term Park from the name and just stick with Disneyland Paris.

              Then you'd have Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney Studios Paris at the Disneyland Resort Paris. Disneyland Resort Paris quickly becomes "Disneyland Paris" again (as it has in many European campaigns), because adding the "Resort" part sounds inanely bureaucratic, so you're left with "the main park" and "that Studios park".

              I don't like the names either, but it's not like I could come up with a great alternative. "Magic Kingdom/Royaume Magique" would be nice in a way, but that would mean yet another drastic name change for this 16 year old theme park, and I'm not sure they're ready to rearrange the gold leaf letters on the Disneyland Hotel again.

              If you ask me, WDW is the only resort that got the naming system right for Disney's multi-park concept. Tokyo's works as well, but that's too Engrish for the rest of us (gotta love the logic of "Disneyland...DisneySea!").

                While Walt Disney World got the naming right, there was still a lot that was done to establish the Magic Kingdom as "Disney World park". I think the genius of Tokyo, is that they dropped "Disneyland" from the Resort name.

                  It is clever, but it also adds a touch of sterility and bureaucracy (a la Disneyland Resort's early logo). I'm sure it doesn't have that effect on the Japanese, as their language is obviously quite different and any imported American brand must generate as many fuzzy feelings as the next -- but for Americans and (yes, even) Europeans, "California Disney Resort" or "Paris Disney Resort" would not quite hit the same note as the name "Disneyland" does. Let's not forget the trouble they went through to correct a little mistake known as "Euro Disney".

                      I like the Disneyland Resort name, but I think it places too much emphasis on the Disneyland park. The names Walt Disney World and Tokyo Disney Resort accurately represent their respective resorts as being more than just the Magic Kingdom/Disneyland park.

                        I prefer Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney Studios at Disney Paris Resort, or at Disneyland Paris Resort.
