March 16, 2002 – The Restaurant Backlot Express Opens in Walt Disney Studios Paris
“Dine amongst Disney blockbusters in this industrial props warehouse serving up a range of hot and cold dishes.”
On March 16, 2002, the quick-service restaurant Backlot Express opened in the Walt Disney Studios Paris park of Disneyland Paris. Similar to the original restaurant that opened in Walt Disney World’s Disney-MGM Studios park, it served fast versions of American dishes, including sandwiches and pizza. The restaurant was revised in June 2009, when it became the Backlot Express Restaurant, and was themed to be a props storage room.
