I am currently writing a university paper on my favourite subject .... Disneyland Resort Paris and I am needing a bit of help...

I remember hearing a while back that the French government placed limits upon the expansion of the Resort when they originally granted planning permission for the Disneyland Resort project to go ahead. I don't know for the life of me where I heard this, but I was hoping that you guys would be able to clarify whether this was true or not and hopefully post a link to an article about it... (Please help ...please... with fairy dust on top?):worship:

I have never heard of this. I think its in Disney's plans to eventually build a 3rd park. They are able to expand the 2 they already have obviously subject to raising funds etc

I think there was a book written all about the building of the park and would imagine it would have that sort of thing in there but I can't remember what it was called, sorry.

ETA: Found it, it's called Once Upon an American Dream: The Story of Euro Disneyland and is on sale here (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Once-Upon-American-Dream-CultureAmerica/dp/070060989X/ref=sr_1_17?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1249418793&sr=8-17) at Amazon but it's rather pricey. :(

Just checked on Alibris (http://www.alibris.co.uk/booksearch) and Abe Books (http://www.abebooks.co.uk/servlet/SearchResults?an=Andrew+Lainsbury&bt.x=27&bt.y=16&sortby=3&sts=t&tn=Once+upon+an+American+Dream) for you but still pretty expensive, especially once you start adding on shipping.

Might be worth searching on Ebay?

Thanks for all your help guys....

I think I may have to invest in a book... I quite like the look of Once Upon an American Dream: The Story of Euro Disneyland on amazon unfortunately there wasn't anything much on ebay.... Thanks again! :thumbsup2

Or try a library, if it's not a massive hurry then even if they don't have it, they can request it from another library in the first instance or order a copy for themselves if the entire library network doesn't have it (unlikely it's not somewhere for an older book).

No cost to you at all.
