Let's start the week with a Disneyland Paris update thanks to a pictorial report by Max Fan, D&M contributor and Dlrp Welcome webmaster!
The first Autumn rains have arrived in the north of France but DLP can still expect not too cold temperatures - and why not an indian summer - until the end of October, so it's not too late for you to visit the park if you're planning to do so.
In Main Street U.S.A, at Town Square, the works on the ground are over and the Parade is now back on its normal route...
...But if you look well you'll see on the top of Main Street Transportation Co building a strange net. First, i thought it might be there to avoid pigeons coming on the roof, but it didn't had much sense...
In fact a rehab on the building is scheduled for next quarter and the net is here to make sure that in the meantime parts of the top won't eventually fall on the guests.
On the teepees, the smoke effect appears too white and it looks more like a steam smoke. Oil mixture should make it blacker to fit what the reality was.
Anyway, here we are in Frontierland and the sky was blue again over Big Thunder Mountain Island.
What is a little bit less "blue" however is what is also missing: a large timbered 3 stamp mill on Big Thunder Island at lower mill building is completely missing. On the trains locomotives, Big Thunder Engine's front driving light is missing and although the bracket is still there Big Thunder engines large drive wheels are also missing.
At Phantom Manor, some maintenance is currently happening at the exit of Phantom Manor's ride
Talking about Phantom Manor a good news for DLP fans as DLP merchandise has introduced new products themed on Phantom Manor. They already released some months ago these T-Shirts...
...and now they released these others cool items for sale in the Park or at the Disney Gallery inside Disney Village. Some if not most of them are adapted from Disneyland's Haunted Mansion merchandise products but rethemed on Phantom Manor, like the coasters below.

Nothing special in Adventureland, where the Temple du Péril was working fine...
It's also the time of the year during which Adventureland vegetation is at its best and you will feel being really immersed in a tropical land...
Not much more is happening too at Fantasyland, where Peter Pan's Flight is also surrounded by fences for the refurbishment which is going on...
...and Toad Hall restaurant, one of DLP Fantasyland less known and best themed restaurant, is reopen again!
At Discoveryland's Space Mountain, you may be asked - like it happened for Max - for a bit of help. Space Mountain cast members might give you - if you accept - a badge at the entrance of the queue line that you will give then at a CM before boarding in the train.
This is done to determine the queue waiting time. The CM will "bip" the badge on a terminal and the waiting time will appear automatically at the entrance of the ride.
O-kay, that's all for today's DLP update and we'll be back soon with a new one. In the meantime I remind you that the Disneyland Paris book - in which you have the whole park in 320 pages with 750 photos including 250 WDI renderings - is still available in its collector edition but that unfortunately there is now less than TEN copies of the Disneyland Paris From Sketch to Reality book available in its ENGLISH collector's edition - the FRENCH edition is also available - so if you don't own the book yet, it's really now or never!
And there is a special price right now with a $45 / 40€ discount on the normal price, so order your collector copy while there is still copies available as it's really the last english collector copies. You'll find below a one click Paypal button as well as a video showing the whole book. Also, you can have more infos about this gorgeous 320 pages book HERE.
