Something big for you today about Disneyland Paris Star Tours 2, and it's thanks to our friends from Disney Central Plaza who had the opportunity to see the blueprints and renderings of the new design of the area at the City Hall ( not the one on Town Square, the one of the city on which DLP is built ) where the French law authorize anyone to look at them.
So here below are the pics posted on DCP by Chafouin and nicoetsab showing how Star Tours entrance will look once finished and the blueprints. As rumored, the X-Wing will be put on the top of the Star Traders shop, and the shop will become a Star Wars characters meet and greet / photo location. The previous Star Tours post-show area will be transformed in a merchandise shop.
Below a close-up on the entrance arch, personally, i am not super fan of its look, but may be the final design will be different...
Next are the blueprints, starting by the ones of the X-Wing fighter on the top of Star Traders.
The next blueprint show the photo areas inside Star Traders where guests will meet Star Wars characters.

Next blueprint picture shows apparently the outdoor queue area before entering isnide the show building.
More blueprints can be seen on DCP Facebook page HERE.
For those of you who find this new design of the entrance a bit odd, here are my thoughts: As we know a Star Wars land is envisioned for DLP in the future. My guess is that they know they don’t have the room to build a similar Star Wars land at Discoveryland like the one currently built at DL and WDW DHS, and that they’re probably going to build it at the WDS where they have plenty of room, not to mention that a Star Wars land will attract guests in the WDS park, something needed desperately. Which means that DLP Star Tours could end to be moved at the WDS once Star Wars land will be built like they probably will do with the Star Tours at Disneyland Tomorrowland when Star Wars land will be finished at Anaheim. And so, they probably don't want to spend a lot of money at DLP if they plan to move Star Tours to the WDS in a near future. It's just my guess and i may be wrong.
