We are excited to hear about Disneyland Paris hosting its first food festival inside the parks. Announced on Disneyland Paris’ Facebook page on 26th August:
“From 8th to 24th September, Walt Disney Studios Park will host Le Rendez-vous Gourmand de Disneyland Paris, our new celebration of the finest food and wine from all around France! ??
More details to come soon. (Please drink responsibly).”
The event will be held in the Studio parks outside Ratatouille on the Place de Rémy. It will be a free event to attend so all you need to enter the park will be a normal ticket.
It is said to highlight specialities in food and drink across the six regions of France:
Alsace, Bretagne, Bourgogne/Région Lyonnaise, Bordeaux, Savoie and the Sud de la France
Across the pond, EPCOT at Walt Disney World resort, hosts a range of food and drink festivals throughout the year. They draw in big crowds and it is great to see these kinds of events coming to Disneyland Paris.
We would love to see a more expansive and longer event come to Paris, showcasing tastes across Europe. Bringing more gourmet food to the park would build the gastronomic experience, which the resort is currently lacking.
Disneyland Paris are currently expanding the food showcased at the parks. “A Taste of Oktoberfest” is coming to Disney Village from 15th to 24th September to celebrate Bavaria, Germany.
We wish Disneyland Paris would have made this announcement sooner, last minute trips to Disneyland Paris can be expensive especially for overseas travellers.
