The deceased, who was discovered by park officials, has been identified as a 45-year-old Disney employee. He was a father from Noisy-le-Grand, and had worked at the park since 2002.

Patrick Maldidier, a Disneyland union representative, told Le Parisien that the man "always had a smile on his face."

His name has not been disclosed at this stage.

The circumstances around the death remain unclear, although reports suggest he suffered a fatal electric shock.

Investigations continue.
