“Val d’Europe is a part of the new town known as Marne-la-Vallée. The final area of the district is currently in development. It is located around 35 km to the east of Paris, near Disneyland Paris. Val d’Europe was built in conjunction with The Walt Disney Company, who wished to create a town near the Disney resort.
Euro Disney is the only private company within France that has had such a large say in the development of an urban area of this scale.The architectural style takes inspiration from the “neo-traditional” style of the Baron Haussmann, who supervised the construction of many buildings in Paris in the 19th century.” (Wikipedia)
The only people to be found in Val d’Europe are in the station or shopping centre/outlet. Anywhere else the place feels like a ghost town sprung up in the middle of nowhere.The only sounds are the birds or the odd distant car. This town is home to the people who work at the shopping centre or EuroDisney, but the overwhelming sensation is that nobody really lives here.
