The mobiles will be heavily stylised, so it may be a challenge for park goers to identify each and every character. Each of these pieces has been imagined by the Landscaping and Entertainment teams. Production and manufacturing has been handed over to local craftsmen whose know-how has contributed to Disneyland Paris for many years.
