Disneyland Paris has announced a transformation plan for Disney Village, its retail, dining and entertainment district, which will feature new dining options and refreshed shopping and entertainment offerings.
Disney Village, which has more than doubled in size since it opened in 1992, will also boast a lakeside park and boardwalk, enhanced pedestrian walkways, new terraces and patios, and lush landscaping.
“Our plan to transform Disney Village is yet another example of how we continue to reimagine Disneyland Paris at the resort level, notably with our major expansion plan in progress at Walt Disney Studios Park,” said Natacha Rafalski, president of Disneyland Paris.
“We’re very excited to bring new iconic and timeless concepts to the district that will appeal to a new generation of guests, whether they visit from our nearby resort hotels or from the local area. We can’t wait for our guests to be surprised and delighted by what we have in store.”

The first step in the transformation plan will be a contemporary French brasserie called Rosalie, which will replace the current Café Mickey restaurant. It is scheduled to open in 2023.
Inspired by Parisian brasseries, Rosalie will have 500 seats and contemporary interiors. In addition to table service, a counter will serve viennoiseries, pastries, sandwiches and salads.
“As we continue to collaborate with exceptional brands that we share strong values with, we are delighted to welcome a new restaurant managed by Groupe Bertrand as a first step in our Disney Village transformation plan,” said Laure Albouy, VP of business strategy and integration at Disneyland Paris.
“We believe this unique, family-friendly restaurant will elevate the guest experience at our resort by offering famous French specialties in a unique setting, and we can’t wait to make this new partnership a reality.”
