Adjoining the ticket-only Disneyland Paris theme park, this public-access hotel and leisure complex, running 2¼ mls from N to S and 1¾ mls E to W, has many attractions in its own right. The principal buildings and accommodation are grouped around the artificial Lake Buena Vista and feeder rivers such as the Rio Grande. Landscaping is well established, thanks to thousands of mature trees having been transplanted. All parts of the complex are linked by broad pedestrian boulevards and promenades illuminated at night by cast-iron Victorian-style street lamps. Loop roads provide access for vehicles which are carefully separated from pedestrians. Architecture is varied and inspired by various American themes, with the exception of the rather glitzy complex of restaurants and entertainments known as Disney Village. Nearly all of the young, international staff speak English, and cafes, bars and restaurants have menus and signs in English. Everything is concocted for the taste of a clientele drawn to Americana and Disney characters.
