Walt's – An American Restaurant is a dinner place located on Main Street, U.S.A. at Disneyland Paris, themed to Walt Disney, the creator of the Walt Disney Company. It is known as one of the main restaurants of the resort, and specialises in table services.

Concept

When designing Euro Disneyland, Imagineers wanted to create a place which would act as a tribute to Walt Disney, since European guests were not as acquainted to his life as American guests were. Imagineer Eddie Sotto wanted this place to be designed as a Club 33 for the average guests.

The Restaurant

Ground Floor

  • Lobby: The restaurant's lobby features many items referring to Walt and his achievements. His bust stands in the center of the room, along with devices from the early pre-animation era, such as a Zoetrope. A staircase and an elevator lead guests to the upper floor. As they ascend to it, they can see photos of Walt's reach for his fame, from the creation of Mickey Mouse and the release of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to the opening of Disneyland in Anaheim.

(Note: The following rooms were removed in 1999)

  • Walt Disney's Room: The room paid tribute to Walt Disney's life. Here items referred to his early youth in Marceline, Missouri.
  • Lillian Disney's Room: This room paid tribute to Lillian Disney, Walt's wife. Some photographs showed the couple in their journeys around Europe. The room featured an elegant fireplace (still visible today) and many china items which Lillian was fond of.
  • Main Street Room: This dining room was ornamented with Imagineer Herbert Ryman's artworks for Main Street, U.S.A., and a model of the Main Street Transportation Building. The purpose of this room was to underline the link between Main Street and Marceline, Missouri.

Flower Street featured an outside seating area along the restaurant's facade.

Upper Floor

The upper floor features six themed rooms:

Trivia

  • The restaurant is located on 1401, Flower Street, which is also the location of Walt Disney Imagineering in Glendale, California.
  • The three dining rooms located on the ground floor were removed in 1999 to make way for Lilly's Boutique, a shop themed to Lillian Disney, and designed to sell home items. Most of the props from Lillian Disney's room were reused to decorate the shop, and the fireplace still stands in this place.
  • The piano and violin soundtrack of the restaurant features a wide selection of popular Disney tunes, from the beginning of the Company (Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?) to Disneyland Paris opening (Under the Sea). This soundtrack still plays in Lilly's Boutique.
