We'll start the week with a huge Disneyland Paris update as usual thanks to Max, D&M contributor and DLPWelcome webmaster. Also, i realized recently thatthe stock of the Disneyland Paris book is running low, so it's the right time to place your order for a copy of this gorgeous book before it'll be out of stock! Make sure to check the offer at the end of the article!
Here we go, and we'll start with Kat de Blois, Creative Director of Disneyland Paris who did a presentation of « What’s New, What’s Next » at DLP in 2016.
From March 5 to May 29, 2016 the Spring season will include these three shows:
« Goofy’s Garden Party » on Central Plaza starring Goofy gardener, topiaries and dancers for 4 performances per day.
« Welcome to Spring » at the Castle Stage.
« Minnie’s Little Spring Train » will be this year themed of the Chester cat from « Alice in Wonderland » and the caracter will be added in a new wagon. One wagon will be devoted to « Finding Nemo ». This year’s several dancers will be around the train.
Below, Goofy’s Garden Party dancers costumes.
The arrival of old and new decorations one month before the beginning of the season was justified for a better synergy with the launch of the « The Forest of Enchantment: a Disney Musical Adventure » new show at Chaparral Theatre.
Dès le 2 juillet, « Mickey et le Magicien » prendra ses quartiers au « Animagique theater » pour 5 représentations de 28 minutes par jour, toute l’année. Cela dit, le spectacle ne durera pas aussi longtemps que son prédécesseur Animagique qui existait depuis l’inauguration du parc en 2002.
Le spectacle sera sur le thème des grandes illusions. Mickey sera appelé a nettoyer en une nuit l’atelier d’un grand magicien. Mais nous connaissons Mickey et sa curiosité légendaire, en découvrant tous les objets il ne pourra pas résister à la tentation de toucher un chandelier qui se transforme en Lumière (La Belle et la Bête), une lampe magique qui fera apparaître le génie ou encore l’arrivée de Marraine la bonne fée ! Tout dans cet atelier peut prendre vie et cette aventure s’offrira à nous toute une nuit.
Il est à noter que le spectacle regroupera des performances Live aussi bien chantées que de claquettes.
On July 2 « Mickey and the Magician » will start at WDS Animagique theater for 5 performances per day and lasting approximately 28 minutes each, each day of the year. That said, the length of the show will not be as long as its predecessor Animagique which existed since the inauguration of the Park in 2002. The show will be on the theme of grand magic acts. Mickey will have to hurry to clean in one night the workshop of a great magician. But we know Mickey and his legendary curiosity, and while he'll be discovering all the magician items he won't resist to the temptation to touch a candlestick which turns into Lumière (beauty and the beast), a magic lamp from which will appear Aladdin Genie or even the arrival of Cinderella fairy godmother! Everything in this workshop can take life throughout a night. It is worth noting that the show will bring together Live performed songs and tap dance.
Disneyland Paris half marathon, runDisney will be from September 23 to 25, and will allow for the first time in Europe to link races for children and adults. The weekend will be organized by runDisney which organize since 20 years the events at the Disney parks in the United States. More detail here :Disneyland® Paris Half-Marathon
Let's have a closer look now at the park. Good news,the sun was in that day but not a lot of guests in the park.
At Main Street station fences were installed between the track and the construction zone to hide at visitors the scaffoldings before the trains will be back on track within less than a month.
The giant heart of Spring has been installed.
Victoria’s restaurant exterior has been completely repainted.
Countdown for the last days of Star Tours original version, Last departure to the Moon of Endor on March 13 !
As for the building, the blue and orange colors of the version 2 of the attraction are already in place since some months, visible from the level of the railroad station .
New door to separate the parc and the backstage of Videopolis in the passage between Fantasyland and Discoveryland. This new door is less wide and hide less the view to backstage, guests can see easily the other side which is a bit a pity.
Although Fantasyland water area was repainted, the latter has not been rehabilited, the concrete cover is totally exposed and you can see it...
What about a little visit of the Toad Hall restaurant?
Nearby, Peter Pan's Flight is always in renovation...
At Adventureland, scaffoldings continue to spread on Skull Rock and climb on Swiss Robinson's Tree.
The problem of works in progress is for the basins that have not been emptied. Result, the vase invaded the lagon of the land, water is green and black. When weather will turn hot again, the smells will follow.
At Frontierland, we can see on those pictures the progression of scaffoldings, the withdrawal of trees with the land turned over on small islands and the continuation of the cleaning of the canyon before being repaint.
Big Thunder Mountain station is now covered by scaffoldings.
Near the Pocahontas playground for now closed, work happen currently for the installation of an equipment allowing the use of smoke for the new Big thunder Mountain final scene which will be the same as in Disneyland California.
Currently Frontierland is truly empty with only a single attraction in operation. With the new show, the access is not really beautiful because of the corridors of fences despite their theming here and there.
And to finish this article, here are some pictures of the new show « The forest of Enchantment », best original creation of the park since more than ten years, as well as some merchandise at the exit.
