Discover your identity in serene style
You’ve just spent days at Champs-Élysées, the Louvre and Disneyland® with the kids. And while the great adventure made their dreams come true, you long for some pampering and to fulfil some fantasies of your own. At La Vallée Village, only minutes from The Magic Kingdom, you can make them come true and you won’t need to wave a wand to make the magic happen.
Are you tired of wishing that every style you liked on Instagram would automatically appear in your closet? You’ve come to the right place to make those wishes come true. Feel like a storybook princess in fashions only found in paradise when you accept La Vallée Village’s special invitation to live shopping differently, which begins with the enchanted setting, featuring fasçade and store interiors that reflect each unique brand. It’s a lot like going on a wild ride at Disney––only better, because you can stay on your favourite one as long as you want.
The fantastic feeling of serenity begins at the carpark with a valet service that sees to it that serious pampering begins upon arrival. When you set foot in the gloriously calm setting of the couture village you discover winding, tree-lined walkways will whisk you away to more than 110 prestigious brands where adventuring from house to house takes you on the ride of your life––discovering the brand that reflects your inner beauty to the world. Enjoy the feeling of amusement in an à la française way where your new accessory is simplicity and pass the time admiring all the wondrous details that transcend fashion and turn it into fine art.
As the sunlight streams over the harmonious village, enjoy dipping your toe into the intriguing looks you’ve never dared to try before. Go ahead and indulge, you know you deserve it. And besides, we’re nicer when we love our outfit, right? Whether you’ve come for a quick fix or to luxuriate in a day of couture, you’ll find looks for every season…and whim, for that matter. From casual chic, to fresh off the runway, barefoot elegance and urban trendy to the timeless, you’ll love dabbling and experimenting.
Your carriage awaits! Five-star services include the Shopping Express shuttle with two daily departures to the centre of Paris, and a variety of shuttles serving all the Disneyland Hotels too. A multilingual staff will see to all your needs including personal and hands-free shopping because frazzled is never a good look. And when you need to get rid of the high-heeled tension of the day the VIP lounge is a great place to charge up that mobile, upload your favourite Insta photos, over a glass of champagne. You know how to do style this summer.

You don’t have to go far to liven up your summer. Just enjoy the Village’s street performers and artists, something the whole family can enjoy. With giant sculptures and artists at work in the Village, you will make discoveries among celebrated artists from the contemporary scene that include world-famous street artist Jonone, who will install one of his extra-large works of graffiti and artist and photographer Sylvie Barco, who will cover a 4.5-metre-high wall with collages of Parisian life.
Adventure and excitement are only a carriage ride away. From Parisian Fashion icons to internationally acclaimed brands, delight in deals you don’t have to spend all day hunting for, as prices in the village are reduced a minimum of 33% at every boutique. You’ll probably need a bigger suitcase to bring your booty home.

There’s something for everyone here from Menu Palais’s Parisian bistro, serving seasonal delicacies on scenic terraces, or simply enjoy afternoon tea. And when you crave something sweet, drop in Ladurée, the iconic French bakery, for their famous delicate macaroons in dozens of different colours and flavours for you to take home to friends. So when you get home you can savour a lavender marshmallow in your morning coffee, close your eyes and remember a shopping experience that will find you wishing upon the next falling star for another journey back to your magic kingdom, La Vallée Village.
