The press release also stated that this long-term partnership has been renewed until 2027. The aim of this initiative is not only to improve the experience of guests at Disneyland Paris, but also to bring the magic of Disney into the everyday lives of Orange clients.

Since 1992, this partnership has helped millions of Disneyland Paris guests connect with each other and share their park experiences.

In just the past few years, Disneyland Paris guests and Orange clients have been able to enjoy new and innovative experiences created through this collaboration. This includes technologies such as virtual reality games, augmented reality applications and unique decor and activations within Orange flagship locations.

The partnership will also bring further improvements to Disneyland Paris’ Wi-Fi and mobile network, not just in the park but across the resort as a whole. In fact, one of the recent improvements that has been implemented in the park is the collaboration between Orange and Walt Disney Imagineering, which has integrated Wi-Fi hotspots within the Marvel Avengers Campus.

Here is what Laure Albouy, Vice President of Business Strategy and Integration for Disneyland Paris, had to say about the future of this collaboration with Orange:

“More than ever, Disneyland Paris is looking to the future. Our partnership with Orange – a global brand dedicated to digital innovation and sustainability – is an excellent embodiment of our ambitions. We are excited to continue the partnership that has benefited our guests and cast members over the past 30 years, with even more opportunities to come.”
