Disneyland Paris Celebrates Completion of Largest Solar Canopy Plant

We are thrilled to share a new milestone at Disneyland Paris in celebrating Disney’s commitment to our planet: the completion of Europe’s largest solar canopy plant. Focused on working towards the company’s 2030 environmental goals, Disneyland Paris and Disney parks around the world are continuing to innovate and help the habitats we call ourHOME.

A Journey Years in the Making 

In 2020, Disneyland Paris embarked on a three-year construction journey to create a solar canopy plant in its guest parking lot through a collaboration and co-investment with French company Urbasolar Group. As Europe’s premier tourist destination, the resort is continuously finding creative solutions to reduce its environmental footprint. 

Since its full operation began in December 2023, the plant is producing 36 GWh/year – which is equivalent to the energy consumption of a town of over 17,400 people! This contributes to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the Val d’Europe territory by approximately 890 tons of CO2 per year. Made up of over 80,000 panels that cover 11,200 parking spots across 20 hectares (49.4 acres), guests and their vehicles can also enjoy protection from direct sunlight, rain or snow, all while contributing to a greener future. 

It takes so many people to make an achievement like this happen. We extend our gratitude to the numerous teams and cast who have worked to make Disneyland Paris a beacon of Walt’s vision that conservation is a responsibility shared by all. As Walt himself said, “Conservation isn’t just the business of a few people; it’s a matter that concerns all of us.”
