The expansion of Pizzeria Bella Notte Restaurant at Disneyland Paris will see the addition of the Disney+ film, ‘Luca.’
Disneyland Paris’ Fantasyland has been a vibrant homage to European fairy tales. Where the magic of animation meets the architectural styles and cultures of the countries they are inspired from. Pizzeria Bella Notte is not exception. Its romantic and peaceful atmosphere pays tribute to various regions of Italy.
The iconic restaurant boasts nods to classic Disney stories like ‘Lady and the Tramp’ and ‘Fantasia.’ Soon, with the completion of an expansion, ‘Luca’ will be added to the restaurants theming.
’Luca’ is a beautiful coming-of-age tale that reminds us of the beauty of acceptance, of one another but also from within. Discovering who we are can be a daunting challenge, but friendships can help us on that journey. I’m really happy that we are able to bring elements from the story of ‘Luca’ here to Fantasyland.Tracy Eck, Art Director at Walt Disney Imagineering Paris – Design & Show Quality
‘Luca’ takes place in the Italian Riviera and tells the story of a young boy experiencing an unforgettable summer filled with gelato, pasta and endless scooter rides. Luca shares these adventures with his newfound best friend, but all the fun is threatened by a deeply held secret: they are sea monsters from another world just below the water’s surface.
This new themed area will bring a seaside atmosphere with lots of details and objects evoking the local fishing culture and cuisine that you can find in Luca’s hometown of Portorosso, in addition to providing further space for guests to enjoy Italian specialties. When the opportunity to expand the restaurant arose, Imagineers naturally thought about the fan-favorite sea monster to add to the variety of characters represented in the park.
