Euro Disney has agreed a one billion euro bail-out deal as it struggles to recover following the economic downturn.

The Paris themepark, which is 40% owned by the Walt Disney Company, has seen visitor numbers drop by 700,000 to 14.9 million.

Its parent company is set to inject one billion euros into the business as part of a deal which include eliminating 600 million euros in debt.

Euro Disney opened in 1992 and has since welcomed more than 275 million visitors.
