Disneyland Paris Walt Disney Studios Update : Awaited Ratatouille Merchandise Shop Finally Open !

I've got a new DLP pictorial update for you, always thanks to Max Fan, D&M contributor and DLPWelcome webmaster, and today we'll ahem a look at the long awaited Ratatouille merchandise shop "Chez Marianne, Souvenirs de Paris" which is at last open! But first, make sure to read this article till the end to enjoy the Christmas special offer on the Disneyland Paris book!

Let's start the tour by a walk from Walt Disney Studios entrance through the Studio 1 as Max also shot some pictures of the Christmas lighting inside it.

All-right, let's move now to the Ratatouille land and its new merchandise shop.

The theming inside the shop is very inspired by early last century "art-nouveau" style, and it seems that WDI Imagineers have rediscovered the art-nouveau as they will use it in others new projects, starting apparently by the Shanghaî Disneyland 5 stars hotel opening with the park late 2015, if there is no delay. Anyway, according to Max they did a real good job on this new shop, let's have a look in pictures as well as in video!

And the merchandise itself, you ask? Well, as the shop is called "Souvenirs de Paris" you'll find not only merch items inspired by ratatouille but also some by The Aristocats characters and Paris itself with plenty of Eiffel Tower packaging!

Outside, always at the WDS guests could meet Mickey and Minnie in Christmas costumes...

Let's move to the Disneyland Park next door as renovation works have ended on the Main Street Transportation Co building which now looks as new as it was on opening day!

At Disney Village the "Pause & Play" food cart has been repainted with a green color to promote the new Coca Cola life drink - DLP has a partnership with Coca Cola - a drink supposedly designed with an ecological spirit... well, that's what they say...
