According to many online reports guests were handing flowers to cast members in the pavilion throughout the day Saturday. These flowers were taken backstage to a makeshift memorial so cast members could reflect and grieve privately.

Saturday night the pavilion's replica of the Eiffel Tower was illuminated in French colors.

In light of the attacks Disneyland Paris was closed on Saturday, November 14 and will remain closed until at least Tuesday, November 17.

The official statement from Disneyland Paris read: "Considering the gravity of the events that occurred in France and by solidarity for the French government and the victims of these hideous attacks, Disneyland Paris has decided to not open on November 14. Our prayers go out to all those who were hurt by these horrific events."

Epcot's French Pavilion is the favorite place for my brother and I when we visit DW. The lovely music of the French composers brings us back over and over again. We also come from French ancestors as well. Our hearts go out to you all working there, knowing where your love and hearts and prayers are at this time. God bless you all...
