Cowboy Mickey advertising Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show

July 29th, 2009 by Dirk

In a follow up to the post earlier today covering the various marketing measures and a special discount promotion for Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show it now seems that the (in the meantime taken down) big poster on the facade of the entrance to the show arena in the Disney Village was just a temporary place holder. In the meantime a huge 3-dimensional figure of Mickey Mouse dressed up as cowboy (complete with cowboy hat but with his regular yellow boots) has been attached to the wall. The figure has been designed to give the impression that Mickey climbed down on a rope from the roof top and (with his feet against the wall) pushes himself away to wink at the guests.

Did you hear about Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show?

Buffalo Bill Spot at Cinema MickeyDid you? It is now featuring Mickey and Friends! If you visited the Disneyland Resort Paris sometime since this spring you should have noticed as the resort is pushing the dinner show with posters, flyers and announcements (e.g. on the resort tv as well as the screens in the lobby of the hotels) heavily. In addition the huge screens of Cinema Mickey in the Videopolis are now also used to show an extensive ad for the dinner show once per hour, shortly before a new cycle of the classic Mickey shorts starts (which is always on the hour). …[more] »

Pirates and Higschool Kids

July 28th, 2009 by Dirk

… are supposed to be right at home at the Disney Blockbuster Café in the Walt Disney Studios Park once the transformation of the former “Backlot Express Restaurant” is finished. In another visible progress the “Café” signage part of the restaurant’s name was added to the facade above the main entrance in the past days. As in the past, while “Disney Blockbuster” is painted directly on the wall, the “Café” element is actually a 3D-element that (supposedly) should be illuminated at night. But what about the interior? …[more] »

New Color Scheme?

July 27th, 2009 by Dirk

Just a little heads up from the ongoing rehab of the Disney Channel Studio building in the Walt Disney Studios Park. As reported the whole building, housing “Stitch Live!”, the new “Playhouse Disney” stage show as well the actual offices of the Disney Channel France, is covered in scaffolding on the sides facing the theme park. First glimpses of the work going on on the top levels indicate that not only is the facade going to be repainted but with a different color scheme! Originally the yellowish color was combined with green and blue accents but the latter seem to be (at least partially) replaced with a red color. Also the small kiosk under construction in front of the building is already showcasing this new, warmer color scheme.

Small Improvements

July 27th, 2009 by Dirk

Big Thunder Mountain Fastpass Waiting QueueOne of the most congested areas in all of Disneyland Paris on most days is the walkway right in front of the entrance to Big Thunder Mountain in Frontierland. With the addition of the FastPass machines next to it this congestion in the past years became even worse, as guests debatting whether to enter the regular stand-by line for the attraction were joined by the crowds forming around the entrance to the FastPass machines to obtain their FastPass tickets to bypass the long lines for the ride on run-away-mine-train. But a small change realized at the beginning of this year’s summer season has allevated the situation considerably. With a rope the entrance to the FastPass distributing machines has been re-routed, resulting in the queue for the machines not to extent toward the attractions regular entrance but into the opposite direction. …[more] »

Is it Christmas already?

July 26th, 2009 by Dirk

Xmas Articles 2009 (1)That is the question some guests may ask themselves when browsing through the Disney Gallery in the Disney Village, where right next to the items of the current sale the first displays of new merchandise for the Christmas Season 2009 have been added. However, then most guests will only visit the resort and its shops only once in a couple of years so offering the popular christmas merchandise year round has always been a concept – even so usually the christmas merchandise used to be limited to the year round christmas shop inside Sleeping Beauty Castle until shortly before the actual Christmas Season begins in early November. …[more] »

Yellow no more & more new merchandise

July 25th, 2009 by Dirk

Rain Ponchos 2009For decades Disney parks around the world were swarmed by guests in bright yellow ponchos on rainy days looking from the air as if swarms of giant bees were bussing around the park in the rain. But in the recent years the US-resorts replaced the bright yellow plastic ponchos with clear (see through) plastic ponchos. And now the Disneyland Resort Paris is following this trend.

While for 2007 and 2008 the resort ordered yellow ponchos with large 15th anniversary logos (that are still on sale in some shops in the resort) now the first deliveries of new clear (see through) plastic ponchos have arrived and are on sale e.g. in some shops on the Main Street, U.S.A., on rainy days. The new ponchos also feature a new logo featuring only the name “Disneyland Paris” with the “A” in the two words being formed by a drawing of the Eiffel Tower. …[more] »

Disney Blockbuster Café

July 24th, 2009 by Dirk

As covered in the past weeks the Backlot Express Restaurant in the Walt Disney Studios is undergoing a major re-themeing / re-decorating indoors. Part of the re-launch of the dining location located in the park’s Backlot area (right next to Restaurant des Stars) is also a name change. In the past weeks the original name was taken off the facade (even so still presented on the new menues featuring pricing partially adjusted to the VAT reduction in France) and first the word “BLOCKBUSTER” appeared in big, capital letters to be followd shortly afterwards with a much smaller “DISNEY” located slight to the top left of the first letter of “Blockbuster”. Now the new name has been officially confirmed by the resort as “Disney Blockbuster Café” … …[more] »
