Disneyland Paris Update !

Let's end the week with a new Disneyland Paris pictorial update, with great pictures thanks to Max Fan, D&M contributor and DLPWelcome webmaster.  We"ll move in a few seconds to the Disneyland Park but first let's have a look to the works on the WDS Earfell Tower, known here as the "chateau d'oreilles". Works should end in September or October and they are supposed to paint at the top new visuals with eventually new colors.

The new entrance arches are finished for the ones on the side of the main parking lot and train station...

...and still in the works for the ones on the side of the Parking Vinci.

In the Fantasia Gardens renovation of the ground continue.

Also in the Fantasia Garden in front of the Disneyland Hotel, two kiosks on four came out of refurbishment ( the two closest to the park entrance ) with surrounding vegetation re-cut for a better showcase.

Nothing special on Town Square where refurbishment is also going on on the Main Street Transportation Co. and Boardwalk Candy Palace.

While we are in Main Street let's stop a few seconds as Max have some news for us about DLP Projects in the next months!

During Christmas season, a Christmas cavalcade should replace the day parade. How this will be achieved? The decision to put cavalcades at the heart of the seasons is DLP's desire to accentuate the festive aspect of the theme that visitors are looking for when coming at the park during these seasonal events. The cavalcade of Christmas which will be enlarged (in other words it will be more a parade, than a cavalcade ) will follow the same logic and will happen several times per day.

Also, during Disney Halloween Party on Friday, October 31, 2014, following numerous complaints from 2013 session on the non-visibility of the shows, performances will happen on Vidéopolis and Castle stages and not at Captain Hook Galion. It took them time to realize that shows stages exist in the park!

About the cast of characters in Disneyland Park during Extra Magic Hours + ( starting normally November 13,  five meeting points were chosen to allow hotels guests to approach their heroes on Main Street USA.

The meeting points are:
- The bandstand in Town Square
- The main entrance of the Emporium shop,
- The gas pump of Main Street Motors
- The Coca Cola vehicle
- The center of Central Plaza with Mickey and Minnie.

Let's end these news by one about the winter season - but this must be confirmed - as apparently you can expect to see many, many more of Frozen characters" whether for meet and greet or  a new segment in the Disney Dreams! night show. In addition, a new version of the show "Welcome to Beautiful season" should be made ​​for the Christmas season.

Let's move now to Fantasyland!

In front of Sir Mickey, the Beanstalk and the mini garden came out of refurbishment. The result is stunning!

The Enchanted Tree near the themed little food house with the same name is back after its renovation. Let's hope it does not deteriorate too quickly. But now it's time they take care of the house to have some repaint because of its paint is peeling.

A Fantasyland near the restaurant Bella Note and Fantasia Gelati a painting refresh of the little wall was conducted, the colors are now more vibrant.

At Frontierland, it's the turn to the Silver Spur Steakhouse facade to have a refurbishment. However, during the works the restaurant is still open for the guests.

At Disney Village in the World of Disney store new plushs animals are totally "kawaii", arriving straight from Disney Store Japan. Named "TSUM TSUM" these little round balls in the Manga spirit intend to be all stacked in a pyramid and have them hold together...

Thanks for the pictures.

The Resort entrance arches look ugly! If this is what greets guests "welcome to our 70 euro a day parks", than it's bad. It really looks temporary, they could have done something with real wrought iron or something else, that looked nice. Too bad, this is a missed opportunity!
