For the first time, Disneyland Paris is participating in Paris Plages and has an amazing 16-foot sand sculpture of Sleeping Beauty Castle. If you’ve not heard, Paris Plages is a yearly summer event held in the heart of Paris where the Seine riverbanks are transformed into a giant beach. Seven expert sculptors worked for nearly 300 hours to transform 60 tons of natural sand into our famous castle along the Seine River. Take a look at their finished work. Also, for the 10th edition of Paris Plages, Disneyland Paris and the Mairie de Paris social services division are holding a special day for children unable to go on vacation this summer. Paris Plages continues through August 21.
