French Lift

Vintage Images Prior to Renovation

For those who are interested in the French Lift, we present a few photos of the lift and cable mechanism.

The French Lift is extremely smooth, quiet and superbly efficient. Commonly used in higher priced homes in the 1880's and upwards, these lifts are now quite rare.

The story behind this lift is that Walt and Lillian were shopping in the French Quarter of New Orleans and while inside an older hotel, Walt spotted an elevator he immediately had to have. The hotel would not sell the elevator, so Walt had his Disney Imagineers build an exact copy with current safety upgrades. 

First floor lift station, ready to elevate  guests to the most wonderful dining experience the park has to offer.

This is the Lounge Alley French Lift station.

The next three photos are of the cable and weight mechanism.
