It is almost impossible to keep track on all the rehabs that happen during a year. One would need to visit the park almost weekly to keep up. However, at this time Disney is working on the following areas.
In Adventureland the Pirates of the Caribbean is closed for a rehab. Not only the attraction itself is closed and boarded off, but also the Blue Lagoon restaurant has closed its doors. One can’t see anything on what is going on inside the attraction or the restaurant but you can see on one of the picture that they are also working on the Blue Lagoon exterior section. Scaffolding is set up at the entrance of the restaurant, in front of the Blue Lagoon sign. Looks like they’ll give the sign a little clean up before welcoming back their guests. The Pirates is expected to re-open on March 15th.
In Fantasyland we can see the next rehab going on. This time of a far smaller proportion then the one mentioned above. Just behind Dumbo, next to Peter Pan and in front of Mickey’s new meet and greet attraction a small area is fenced off. Guest can walk around it in a circle, just like the pattern that can be found on the floor next to the green fences, but the work on the little planting area is hidden behind them.
The next little rehab can again be found in adventureland. One of the little shop, La Girafe Curieuse, has some work done on the exterior walls. Might be a small thing, but it shows that Disney cares about the look of all of their shop, restaurants and buildings.
One would expect that when working on the Thunder Mesa Riverboat Landing Molly Brown, they would do so at the back of the river in the docks. Not with the Molly Brown. In Thursday she was docked at the front for all to see. While the view of this beautiful boat is always a welcome one, it is weird to see it in parts. No, no, don’t worry. It wasn’t as bad as it sounds. It was only one of the side panels, covering one of the big wheels, which had been taken of.
The Next morning the big paddle wheel was covered again and the boat went around the river at least once for testing. After the test round, it docked at the front again and remained closed for the rest of the day.
Looking for up-to-date info from the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting of Disneyland Paris (EuroDisney S.C.A.) taking place Thursday, February 28th, 2013? Don’t worry – DLP.info got you covered as we tweet live from the event at our official Twitter account Mousekingdom!
The constructions crews at the Walt Disney Studios Paris continue to add layer by layer to the upcoming new dark ride based on the Disney Pixar hit “Ratatouille” – and that is just based on the progress concerning the facades of the building(s).
With the current streak of sub-zero temperatures and repeated days during which the resort is covered by snow progress on the facades is limited – however, the level already constructed so far gives a good impression of the facades that will ring the new plaza in front of the attraction.
It looks gray, cold and totally uninteresting, but once the construction is ready it will turn into something magical; The rumored “Ratatouille Kitchen Calamity!” attraction at the Walt Disney Studios in Paris.
The new ride and restaurant building is starting to show its form, even if it is only a concrete facade at the moment. The cranes have been visible for a while but now that the new walls are starting to go up, more of it becomes visible for the guests by-passing the fence next to the construction site. It looks like it wont be long before the roof will be put up and work on the inside of the building can start.
Opening of the Remy’s new “Kitchen” is expected somewhere in 2014.
Disneyland Paris is inviting all there guests to celebrate the end of the old and the beginning of the new year. To do this they have a full day of fun planned.
On the last day of the year the gates of the Disneyland park will open at 9:30AM (Updated from 10AM. Incorrect on the program) and will not close anymore for that year as the park will close the next day at 1AM. Guest can go into the new year while they celebrate inside the park. The program for the day and evening is filled with lots of cool stuff, including the extra Christmas fun.
There will be the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony, Mary Christmas with Belle, Jack and Sally’s Cemetry, The Jingle Bell Boys; Dreams and a lot more. However the most important celebration for the evening is beginning of the new year with the fireworks. At midnight guest will get to see one of Disney’s magical New Year Fireworks and Show. No news on what to expect for the celebration, but the “show” in the title might be an indication there might be more then just the fireworks.
The Walt Disney Studios is also open until 1AM and also has a special New Year Eve program. This includes a Video Dance Party and a Lucky Dance Party. Again, the most important celebration part of the day will include a firework display. The Studios fireworks will light up in the air on some pop re-mix Disney tunes.

Disneyland Paris welcomes all those that wear a Halloween costume but there are specific rules that need to be followed by every guest of the park. To make sure you are not being turned back from the gates to changes guests should inform themselves on what is and what is not allowed. To help those guests Disney has put out a set of rules that you can find here.
“Complete masks or costume hiding the head or face, forbidden. Costumes or make up that could offend the sensibilities of our family audience are forbidden. Dangerous or cumbersome accessories (fake weapons, sticks,…) are forbidden. Certain accessories (hats, capes) must be removed before riding our attractions. If you wear the costume of your favorite Disney character you commit not to pose or sign autographs.”

While our photos here still show the World of Disney Store behind construction walls the new anchor store of the Disney Village today opened its doors (the official grand opening will take place on July 12). According to our sources at the same time as its doors officially open other doors will close – to be specific: the doors of the main area of the Disney Store in the Disney Village.
During a two week period the store is supposed to be re-invented as a kids store. Instead of the general selection of Disney products and resort merchandise the former Disney Store will then limit itself on kids related products. To enhance the experience the store will be divided into several sections / themed areas: Star Wars, Cars, Candy, Bedtime, Duffy, Boys, and finally Girls.
The smaller extension room of the Disney Store next to the currency exchange office already switched over to Christmas merchandise in the past days. It is supposed to remain open during the transformation of the Disney Store into a kids’s store. No word yet whether it will remain a Christmas shop year round or whether it will be altering between the various seasons / seasonal merchandise as it has in the past years.
The transformation of the former Disney Stores would leave only one store in the Disney Village that stuck to its original concept and themeing since opening day in 1992: Hollywood Pictures. However, as our sources inform us, the remaining days of Hollywood Pictures seem limited as well. It’s replacement isn’t ready to be officially revealed – yet, we have been told that currently the resort is in negotiations with LEGO to transform the space into a LEGO Store. Both at Walt Disney World and at Disneyland Anaheim LEGO operates popular stores in the Downtown Disney areas already, adorned with giant Disney characters recreated out of LEGO that are popular photo spots. However, it should be noted that the negotiations seem to be rather difficult and no dates have been set yet for such addition to the Disney Village.
