Never Seen Before 1997 Imagineering Video : Disneyland Paris Show-Producers Talks About Designing Each Lands of the Park

I have for you today a special treat: a never seen before Imagineering video about the creation of Disneyland Paris. In this video filmed more than 20 years ago in 1997, after the opening of Space Mountain, each DLP show-producers are talking about the land they have designed. It goes into detail about their philosophy and thematic efforts in building each land of the park.


This Imagineering video had six segments, one for each of the five lands of the park, plus one "Imagineering Overview" segment with the five lands show-producers, and Disney Legend and Imagineer Tony Baxter who was leading the creative team. This is the first video below. The video quality here is low definition because it's coming from a VHS tape - so avoid to watch them full screen mode - but these extremely rare interviews of Disneyland Paris show-producers are priceless!



In the next video, Imagineer Eddie Sotto tells you all about the lavish design of DLP Main Street.



Next is Imagineer Jeff Burke, talking about designing the American West for DLP Frontierland.



In the next video below Imagineer Chris Tietz talks about designing DLP beloved Adventureland that you can see below in another aerial picture showing on the bottom the piece of land still available on the left of the Temple du Péril, that Imagineers kept long ago for an Indiana Jones Adventure ride.





Next is Imagineer Tom Morris talking about the fairy-tale design of DLP Fantasyland.



In this last video Imagineer Tim Delaney talks about the unique design of DLP Discoveryland.
