Disneyland Paris Update: "Rendez-Vous Gourmands" at the Walt Disney Studios !



Here is a new Disneyland Paris update thanks to Max, D&M contributor and DLP Welcome webmaster! During two weeks, visitors of the Walt Disney Studios Park had the chance to have a tasting of products and dishes from French regions. This small event lasted until September 24th.

For two weeks, the « Rendez-Vous Gourmand » of Disneyland Paris was set up for its first edition at the Walt Disney Studios Park to offer a new experience at Place of Rémy. Here is the video of the opening with the cut of the ribbon!




In fact, six booths highlighted the specialties and wines of France regions. They were placed along the path and the plaza leading to WDS most delightful ride, Ratatouille!



The booths were a real opportunity for visitors and especially foreigners to discover French specialties including wines, cheeses and delicatessens labeled and certified. So you were able to discover a burgundy beef in its delicious juice for €4.50 , a sauerkraut at €3.50 or a pancake with ham cheese and mushrooms at €5. But if you preferred desserts, the Kouign-Amann was at €3, the blueberry tart at €4 or the 3 mini-Tropéziennes at €9.









As you will have understood, whether it was from the west or the east or he south of France with the plates of charcuterie and Corsican cheese, there was delicious French food available for all tastes.

The Rue de Paris, leading to the Place de Rémy, with its stands offering the best recipes of the French regions with their specialties to the visitors in a pleasant setting of village place giving a new dimension to this neighborhood. And it is the musicians, dancers and dancing at 3 pm, 4 pm and 5 pm that this market square, its stands and the attraction Ratatouille will give you a glimpse of the French provinces.








But besides tasting a multitude of flavors characteristic of these regions, the red, white, rosé wines and even champagne regions were also served to go along with the dozen of typical products that each booths offered to visitors.



Our feeling for this two-week event is that it was a very good idea from Disneyland Paris to organize at this season. The proposed products were of quality with small prices for small portions in order to offer a culinary insight of France.











This choice of « tasting » service also makes possible to stir visitors’ curiosity about French gastronomy and allow them to choose certain foods.

In addition, this offer also give the possibility to change the usual booths with popcorns which are everywhere in the parks and offer little diversity, surprise and envy in the choice of snacks. Finally, don't take this event as an opportunity to have a full meal as restaurants like the « Bistrot chez Remy » is here for that. Anyway, it was nice to see the diversity in choices, products and quality proposed in a theme park. This gourmet season, happened from September 8 to 24 from 10 am to 6 pm during the week and from 10 am to 8 pm on weekends, let's hope it will be back next year!

Let's end with his video of Max showing the whole thing!




One more thing, and it's about the Disneyland Paris book as the publishing company has ended and many of you asked me if there were still copies available. I could saved a few copies in English, perfect condition, but for the french edition there is only a few damaged copies, some with a serious hit on the cover, but the dust jackets will be changed for a new one so it will hide the damages on the cover.

The English edition are in perfect condition and will cost you 75€ + 22€ shipping worldwide, except Belgium or Italy, 29€. The damaged French collector edition copies are at 65€, always + 22€ shipping worldwide, except Belgium or Italy, 29€. Payment is possible by Paypal or credit card and if you wish to order one of these last copies you need to send me an email at: nme4@wanadoo.fr

It's a fantastic book, so if you've missed it, don't let go this last chance to get your own copy!

Finally a French cuisine festival in a Disney park in Paris. Why did it take 25 years to realise such a good idea? Glad it was a success.

News such as this makes me really anticipate the Ratatouille ride coming to Epcot. How interesting would it be to incorporate all of this food and festivities into the Food and Wine Celebration? It would be such an excellent addition! :D
