This article analyses alterity construction in Ile De France through the example of Val d’Europe. It explains that it implied the French state, the Walt Disney Company and local and regional governments, as well as by present and future residents, within the constraints of a contract based on French laws. It demonstrates that the Company’s investment benefited the region but did not lead to Disneyfication of the Briard landscape of agricultural lands in the Eastern Paris basin. It concludes that the French state did not abdicate its authority in favor of commoditization of Paris as a global metropolis
