Euro Disney S.C.A. is the wholly owned subsidiary of the The Walt Disney Company that owns and operates Disneyland Paris in Marne-la-Vallée, France. 39.78% of shares were held by The Walt Disney Company, 10% by the Saudi Prince Alwaleed and 50.22% by other shareholders. The stock is traded on the Euronext Paris exchange.

Disneyland Paris comprises Disneyland Park, Walt Disney Studios Park, Disney Village, six on-site Disney Hotels and two self-catering resorts. Val d'Europe is a residential and shopping development. Another seven hotels/residences have been built not far from the two Disney theme parks on land held under Euro Disney SCA's lease, including properties from companies such as Holiday Inn, Kyriad, MyTravel and Radisson Hotels.

The Resort was a result of an agreement signed on 24 March 1987 between The Walt Disney Company and the French Authorities for the development of a new tourist destination, and construction began within a year. Since opening on 12 April 1992, the Resort has created more than 30,000 jobs (both directly and indirectly) in the region to the east of Paris. Today it is the number one tourist destination in Europe, with 14.5 million visits recorded for Financial Year 2007.

However, as of June 2017, the Walt Disney Company acquired Euro Disney S.C.A, thus becoming the sole owner of the Disneyland Paris property, and allowing them to engage in a full refinancing plan.
