Hello all. Here the last news from Disneyland Paris! Not a lot of text today, but lot of great pictures. However, we will begin by the Walt Disney studios where the hollywood hills - with the famous “hollywood” letters - appear last week!
At the end of the - very small - “hollywood blvrd “ which is part of the new production courtyard placemakin, two backdrop were expected, and here they are, now. Both are showing hollywood hills and it seems that the imagineers had the good idea to choose giant photo of the real “hills” rather to have a false painted one. We have to wait until the end of the works to judge if it was really a good idea or not , but my first feeling is that they’re right.
The guests will have to go through a kind of tunnel under the first backdrop to access on the other side where is located the tram tour station.
Painting is going on on the other buildings, but some signs were adeed at this one below, which is supposed to be a hotel decor.....in fact totally - or almost - flat , as i said last time. All the works have to be finished for november 15th, and, once again the Tower of terror will open to all december 22.
Meanwhile , in the first - and gorgeous park - the Halloween season is almost everywhere, specially in Main Street and Frontierland.
The Halloween sign under Main street station is not the same than last year.
As well as many “pumpkin men” along main street - and little ghosts. Here is a best-of of some of them.
As always, Frontierland got the biggest part of the Halloween decor. I show you last time some of them, here is more decor, right from the entrance of the fort...
...to Phantom Manor
One of the new idea this year is these giant walking witches, everybody was impressed!
Some other witch of a more regular size was entertaining the guests in front of Frontierland stores.
Talking about witches, the former “cartoonish” withches of last year have been removed in the back of Frontierland - in the Cowboy cookout barbecue area, in what is called now the “Witches Academy” .
A stage where dancers and orchestra performs several times a day is there, too.
Other pumpkin men can be seen all around the way towards Frontierland station.
