Disney Dreams is the new landmark evening event to end each day in the Disneyland Paris bringing to life classic Disney stories with spectacular, immersive, state-of-the-art special effects.
Cast Members at Disneyland Paris have called a 48 hour strike this weekend that will take the shine off the theme park’s 20th anniversary party celebrations.
Unions called the strike for Friday and Saturday in a dispute over a pay rise – they have demanded a 4% increase while the company, Euro Disney, has offered 1.5%.
Disneyland Paris marks its anniversary on April 12 but starts two weeks of celebrations this weekend. Today sees an international press even at the park and VIPs will be out in the parks as part of the 20th Anniversary kick-off event. Therefore, it must be feared that the unions will try hard to be visible inside the park to show their “muscle” and get more widespread coverage of their actions.
Euro Disney president Philippe Gas said the strike was “unjustified” as the company had increased pay by 11% in total over the past three years. However, the CFDT union replied, saying pay had previously gone up as the result of staff going on strike.
