Disneyland Paris is situated about 30 kilometres east of the French capital and is the most visited theme park in Europe, with some 10 million visitors in 2014, according to that year's Global Attractions Attendance Report.

France is on high alert after a devastating terror attack in November saw Islamic State group gunmen and suicide bombers target Paris cafes, a concert hall and the Stade de France national stadium, leaving 130 dead and hundreds injured.
