Many of you have come here to collect the precious sesame that will give you access to the Parks for a whole year. Open for 18 years now, the Annual Pass Office has become a must-see for fans. But it’s not just a place to register; it’s also a place steeped in history. While waiting to be received, future holders can admire its architecture and superb decoration inspired by the art deco style, whose elegance and noble materials (bronze, copper and granite) allow for a smooth transition between Fantasyland and Discoveryland. The impressive painting behind the counter depicts Jules Verne and pays homage to his greatest novels, including From the Earth to the Moon and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. It reminds us that at the opening of Euro Disneyland this same rotunda was home to a counter service restaurant, the Café des Visionnaires. It was replaced in 1994 by the Arcade des Visionnaires, where visitors could practice video games, before other modifications finally led to the opening of the current Office.
Disney and me, it's a long love story. I fell into it as a child and never got out. From movies to theme parks, through the history of the Walt Disney Company, to comic books, everything fascinates me.
