Just a thought…

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

Usually we only publish hard fact and news as well as the occasional rumor in this section of DLP.info – therefore I would like to point you to our “other” blog today, the Mousekingdom Blog. Yes, that blog may not be as active as we (and hopefully you) would want it to be but just yesterday we posted about the upcoming sequel to the Disney Channel hit “Disney Teen Beach Movie” – and also included some thoughts on the potential of this franchise for the Walt Disney Studios Park at Disneyland Paris … let us know what you think about it!

P.S.: there is also another new post about Robert Iger’s statements concerning additional investment in the Shanghai Disney Resort … while fans of Disneyland Paris continue to hope for more money from TWDC for “their home resort”.

 

Get ready for Spiderman

Monday, April 14th, 2014

As reported by DEADLINE Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, stars of the upcoming Marvel / Sony feature “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ recently visited Disneyland Paris as part of their international promotion tour for the movie. Deadline goes on showing off a French advertising poster for the latest offering of the resort, the meet’n'greet with Spiderman – you can find it online at http://www-deadline-com.vimg.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/Spiderman-Castle-Background_A3_FR__140414074112.jpg.

Interestingly the poster shows off Spiderman next to Sleeping Beauty Castle – despite the meet’n'greet being located in the Walt Disney Studios park, taking over the former terrace of the Blockbuster Café most recently used as “overflow” Annual Passport office during busy times. According to the latest rumors, Spiderman will start greeting guests in his new “lair” on April 19. Rumors stated that the meet’n'greet is only scheduled till mid-July, however, the French poster used by Deadlinenow identifies July 14 as more specific end-date.

Gusteau has arrived

Sunday, March 23rd, 2014

Gusteaus Sign

Saturday the large light up sign for Gusteau’s restaurant was installed above the buildings of the new Parisian area in the Walt Disney Studios as the exterior work is racing toward the finish line.

Gusteaus-Sign-01While the head of Gusteau’s above the “tunnel” connecting the Parisian street / plaza with Toy Story Playland is still behind a cover (that was installed prior to the grand opening of Toy Story Playland) the huge light up sign visible already from the entrance of Toy Story Playland now gives all guests with a bit of Disney Pixar knowledge a clear hint about the theme of the area and attraction to open later this year.

Remy’s Previews and Soft Openings

Friday, February 28th, 2014

Ratatouille2014

It is almost time for Remy to make Disneyland his new playground. The opening of the Ratatouille attraction is getting closer and everybody is waiting with anticipation (we at DLP.info are).

But before the official opening there will be some special preview dates. Cast Members will be able to ride the attraction on the 23th of June while regular park guest might get the chance to test the new attraction as from Saturday 28 of June.

Start planning your trip to see Remy in Action. Beware though that these are soft opening dates and there is no guarantee that you will be able to ride it on those days.

Paris is Almost Ready

Friday, February 14th, 2014

RatatouilleFeb2014-1Paris is almost completely built. Or should we say a little part of Paris within the Walt Disney Studios. Also known as the new facade to the new Ratatouille attraction. With the progress done so far you can already see how it will turn out. It looks good already but will look fantastic once done. Only until summer before we will see the finished product. Enjoy the pictures, where you can see a team hard at work so it will all be ready in time.

RatatouilleFeb2014-2One thing we do notice is the Costuming building sticking out above the facade. Let’s see if they get this hidden once the area is completed.

The opening dates are still unknown. Even during the Shareholders meeting no dates were given. And if a guest tried to convince Philippe Gas to spill the beans, he would not budge and only say that we need to be patience until summer time.

A Crush for One

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

Crushs-Coaster-02Crush’s Coaster is one of the most popular attractions of the Walt Disney Studios in Disneyland Paris. Lines are always very long. During high season lines can become well over 90 minutes and even hit the dreaded 2 hour waiting time. Up to today there have been no signs for a FastPass system or a line for the single rider. While a FastPass system would not work on this type of coaster, as it would push the regular waiting line well behind the 2 hour queue line, there is some good news for the single riders. In the near future, when the next rehab is planned, the attraction will not only get a new and better regular queue line, but it will also get a special single riders line. With the new queue line no car will be leaving the station anymore unless it is full. From then onwards a party of three will automatically get a fourth rider in their vehicle. Disney is anticipating some extra hourly capacity as vehicles will, from then onwards, always be full.

There is no date know when the rehab will start.

Iron Man vs. High School Musical

Saturday, September 28th, 2013

IronMan1

Since Disney acquired Marvel we have been waiting what would happen in the parks. Some of us are hopping for big things and thrill but sometimes it has to start small. The first marvel character that goes into battle with a well know Disney franchise is Iron Man.

He took it up with the cast from High School Musical at the Blockbuster Cafe in the Walt Disney Studios. We are sure that it is to nobody’s surprise that he won that battle and is replacing the showcases inside the cafe with his own high tech stuff.

Iron Man has made his entry inside the Disney parks at the Disney Blockbuster Café.

What have all these six languages in common? Most DLP fans and collectors will be able to tell you: these are languages in which the official park maps are available. However, in the meantime the wording of this answer requires extra special care – because it is not “these are the languages” but only “these are languages”. Why? Because the resort has just added a seventh language to the mix!

Reacting to the increasing number of high-rolling Russian speaking guests (many of which are staying at the top-of-the-line Disneyland Hotel and are spending top amounts) the resort is now offering the map for both parks in Russian as well. However, while the Russian guests are some of the resort’s big spenders their number is still comparatively low. Therefore, the resort is only producing a limited print run of Russian maps. To avoid running low on these due to collectors / fans picking too many Russian maps up as well as guests by mistake choosing the wrong language they Russian maps can not be found at the regular displays under the Main Street Station / inside the doors of Studio 1. Instead Russian maps are solely available for pick up at the City Hall respectively Guest Service on the Frontlot.
