While famous philosophers have only imagined ideal place, Disney was able to make it work – in 1955 in Los Angeles. The Disneyland cost 17 million dollars and was much smaller than today.
Anyone who has visited this ‘country’ will say that it really is a fairy tale. But then journalists were not delighted. Moreover, the negative reviews were threatening to thwart Disney in his intent. Even though it had infamous start it had a bright future. Until today three Disneyland were built – in Florida, Tokyo and Paris. In this article we will write about French one.
In order to find Wonderland like Alice, it is best to start with a map in your hands. The first building that the visitor encounters is the famous hotel.

In the same street as the hotel there are houses like those in cartoons. In them you can find souvenir shops, pastry shops, restaurants and cafes.
