Les Parapluies de Cherbourg

Get your camera's ready for a special rainy photo opportunity, even during hot summer days...

Straight out of a scene from the French movie "Les Parapluies de Cherbourg" ("The Umbrellas of Cherbourg"), with the same name, comes this fun photo opportunity on the corner of the backlot's Disney' Blockbuster Café. When you walk towards the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster, leaving the Armageddon attraction on your left and walking to the end of the Blockbuster Café, you'll find this small fun spot. One umbrella, add some water and let the fun begin. A perfect spot for a picture, but also very popular with kids who love to run through the water, especially during hot summer days, when this scene is an extra opportunity to cool down.


There is no button on the umbrella but the rain is started by a movement sensor in the lower section of the lamp post.

Do you want to make sure to have a picture without to many other guests sharing it with you? Visit it early or close to closing time to have it to yourself for that perfect picture.

During cold weather and winter time the water feature might be turned off.
