“We are particularly happy to launch this one-of-a-kind collection dedicated to Sleeping Beauty Castle –the icon of our destination-which will allow our fans to take home an authentic piece of magic. Besides, this project is for us an opportunity to collaborate with a local French company that shares Disneyland Paris’ environmental and social values”, said Jean-David Marque, Merchandise & Retail Director at Disneyland Paris.
