Disneyland Paris will celebrate its 22nd Anniversary next Saturday April 12, and thanks to Michael Sandstrom who was a young American journalist and Disney fan at that time D&M is posting an exceptional pictorial report on DLP Grand Opening, 22 years ago. It's a fantastic collection of pictures and we know it is very rare to find photos of DLP opening days.
Starting today April 10 and until next Sunday April 13 you'll see more than 100 pictures and all were shot April 10, 11 and 12, 1992, as Michael was invited as journalist who had a special preview of the park two days before the Grand Opening. Thanks to Michael pictures you'll see everything from pictures of each land as guests discovered them on park opening to the grand party on April 11 with the famous guests who were invited, and of course the Grand Opening celebration on April 12, and it's Michael himself who will comment each picture and tell you his whole story. I will post each day the link of each article once posted on D&M and the one of today include too some pics of the press release that was sent to journalists months before the opening of the park, in 1992, which included this picture of the model of the park on which you'll note that Space Mountain was already there ( but not Autopia! ) even if it would be built only in 1995.

The first article is already on line here: http://disneyandmore.blogspot.com/2014/04/d-exclusive-disneyland-paris-1992-grand.html
