  Walt Disney Studios prepare to open in Paris
Updated 14 March 2002, 21.35
Mickey Mouse at Walt Disney Studios
The Disneyland Paris resort is preparing to open its new theme park, the Walt Disney Studios, on Saturday, to celebrate its 10th birthday.

A ride at Walt Disney Studios
The resort is already known for its rides.

But they hope the new park - which has taken three years to build - will add another day of attractions for visitors.

Star-studded

The studios are aimed at eight to 15 year olds and give visitors a peek behind the scenes of flicks, cartoons and special effects.

A ride at Walt Disney Studios
But there are rides too. Disney's "imagineers" have come up with the fastest rollercoaster they've ever made, speeding from 0 to 100 km per hour in 2.8 seconds.

Bosses expect about 17 million visitors in the studio's first year.

And the opening's set to be a star-studded event.

Come back on Saturday to see what our Press Packer, Stephanie, thought was hot and not in the second of her reports from Paris.
