Disneyland Paris is sharing a behind-the-scenes look as Sleeping Beauty Castle (Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant) receives its first major refurbishment since 1992. Nine French companies are working with Disneyland Paris, including Le Bras Frères. They are working on the castle roof/turrets, with painting, spires, gold leaf, etc. and are treating Sleeping Beauty Castle as they would a historic French castle or monument. Below the video is information from Disneyland Paris and some screen captures from the video.
Sleeping Beauty Castle is undergoing its first major refurbishment since 1992, making this iconic symbol of Disneyland Paris more sparkling than ever for guests to enjoy.
Disneyland Paris has a long-standing history of collaborating with French and European craftsmen to create all those beautifully detailed locations at our Parks. And To carry out this large-scale project with respect for the craftsmanship and level of detail that our resort is known for, Walt Disney Imagineering and Construction teams are calling on French specialists in the field of historical monument renovations.
Nine companies – all French – have been mobilized to carry out the work, including carpentry, roofing, painting and metalworking.
One such French company is Le Bras Frères, renowned for its incredible work on the greatest French monuments and now providing its unique know-how for the refurbishment on the framework and roof of our Castle.
It is wonderful to see Sleeping Beauty Castle receiving such a wonderful refurbishment. The parks are still currently closed due to the pandemic but a lot is going on to ready them for guests to return.
