The Disneyland Paris amusement park in Marne-la-Vallée suffered a three-hour partial power outage on Friday, which affected the operation of several attractions, while many Belgians took advantage of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation Day, a public holiday in French-speaking schools, to take time off and visit the park as a family.
Around 10:00 AM, a failure of an external generator caused several attractions to shut down, confirmed Disneyland Paris spokeswoman for Belgium, Sophie Dero told Belga.

As a result of this situation, which was described as “exceptional”, park technical services were mobilized en masse to restore power as quickly as possible, the spokesperson added but pointed out that not all attractions had been affected.
Around 1:00 PM, the attractions that had been affected by the power failure were gradually restarted.
