Disney character encounters will return to six Disneyland Paris hotels soon, reversing a change which has seen Mickey and friends removed from all on-site accommodation since November 2014.
After a non-stop week of Disneyland Paris 25th Anniversary news and reaction, excitement for next year’s celebrations has stepped up another gear with the release of the resort’s 2017 brochure. Hidden inside the online version, the very first video trailer for the year, with new animated graphics offering a look at what’s to come.
Beyond the main features of the 25th Anniversary, Disneyland Paris also announced two new events to be discussed: Mickey presents “Happy Anniversary Disneyland Paris” and The Starlit Princess Waltz. What can we expect from these, and other park entertainment throughout the next year?
Failing to “flesh out” all the selling points of the new, genuinely “Star Wars” features of Star Tours – The Adventures Continue seems even more of a missed opportunity when we learn that, for real and for definite, our Jules Verne-inspired Space Mountain is basically going to be turned into one big Star Wars selling point itself.
As the lead “new attraction” in the announcement, Paris continues to place all its bets on the Star Wars bandwagon. Newbies may be fooled into thinking this “new attraction”, which “will take Guests on an all-new, action-packed intergalactic voyage”, is indeed totally new.
For others, it laid bare the weakness to chime in that, “actually”, there’s no completely new attraction in this anniversary line-up at all.
How many people have a “ten year plan” that seems to go astray? Chalk Disneyland Paris up for one.
The phenomenally successful Disney Dreams! nighttime spectacular, which launched for the 20th Anniversary and has arguably carried the entire resort on its shoulders for the past five years, will very soon be no more.
