Walt Disney Studios (Paris): Contractually Obligated

My last stop in Europe!  Time is running out, as I have only 30 minutes to get from one park to the next, ride on a rat, and race through security to catch my next flight!  Will I make it with my sanity intact?  Also a quick history of the theme park Disney didn’t want to build, but was legally required to. Plus, a not-so-random appearance by Paul Pressler.

    Great work again! Pressler could be Disney’s worst hire ever. Marty Sklar rips him to pieces in Marty’s book. We were at the Shanghai and Hong Kong parks last month, completing our world Disney tour in about 10 years. We were in the Paris park on the 20th anniversary day. Sat next to Tony Baxter at lunch. Tony told his story about as a 12-year-old he dreamed about a dragon — hence the Dragon’s Lair. If you don’t have it, you might try to track down Didier Ghez’s co-authored and expensive “Disneyland Paris from Sketch to Reality.” Beautiful book.
