Who Wants To Open a Theme Park? Disneyland Paris Style

Originally posted on the DIS Unplugged: Have you ever wondered what all goes into opening a Disney Theme Park?  Knowing the eyes of the world are upon you, and 10,000 people are ready to descend for dinner?  I was able to sit down and talk with two friends of the DIS Unplugged: Lee Cockerell, former Executive Vice President of Operations for the Walt Disney World Resort, and Pamela Landwirth, President of Give Kids The World.  They were both part of the opening team for Disneyland Paris, at that time EuroDisney, and they agreed to share some of their experiences in the opening of that theme park.  Click here to listen to my complete interview with Lee Cockerell and Pamela Landwirth, or follow along with the transcript for images from Disneyland Paris.
