The Disney themed fun continues outside the parks in Disney Village, one of the largest entertainment districts in the Paris region with 30,000 square metres of themed dining, entertainment and shopping facilities.

With eight restaurants offering everything from sandwiches to steaks and burgers to Bavarian cuisine, there is something to suit every palette in Disney Village.

Restaurants include Planet Hollywood, Rainforest Café, McDonald's, Annette's Diner and King Ludwig's Castle. Café Mickey's character dining is a must for lovers of Mickey, Minnie and other favourite Disney characters.

Legendary Disney entertainment continues outside the theme parks with two bars, a nightclub, a 15 screen Gaumont Multiplex cinema and Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show -- a chance to enjoy a feast fit for a cowboy whilst watching cowboys and Indians perform horseback stunts.

New in Disney Village in 2005 is an IMAX theatre showing movies in 2D and 3D and PanoraMagique, the largest tethered balloon in the world. Located on Lake Disney, PanoraMagique will give adventure seeking visitors the chance to float 100 metres above Disneyland Resort Paris by day or night, for 6 minutes of unparalleled views of the many themed lands and attractions and the surrounding area.

Admission to the Disney Village is free (except for ticketed events) every day from 7:30am to 5:00am. Throughout the year there is a succession of seasonal music festivals, live concerts and street entertainment.
