“For everyone that lives Star Wars,” announces the new Disneyland Paris commercial revealed today, “this is the place where Star Wars lives.” And like that, this resort finally “owned” the most valuable movie franchise in our galaxy.
When it reopens on 17th June 2016 after an almost four-month refurbishment, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith will present few new marvels to any but the most observant visitor. In a post on its official Disneyland Paris News blog, the resort has revealed the works mostly involve upgrades to the ride’s launch and control systems, along with general maintenance and repainting.
Disneyland Paris has officially announced that the rumoured Disney & Pixar Short Film Festival will indeed open at Discoveryland Theatre on
2nd July 2016, replacing the Ant-Man movie preview which ended its overlong run this week.
Update: Disney & Pixar Short Film Festival will now open earlier, on 18th June 2016!
A relocated X-Wing fighter is the standout feature of the redesigned exterior for Star Tours: The Adventures Continue at Disneyland Paris, in planning documents submitted to the local town hall which also show a vastly expanded merchandise sales space and an all-new Star Wars character meet ‘n’ greet opportunity.
German-owned restaurant chain Vapiano will become the fourteenth dining option at Disney Village when it opens a new location in the Disneyland Paris entertainment district this summer. Specialising in Italian-inspired dishes of pasta and pizza, the “fast casual” concept prides itself on a fresh and informal way of eating.
Looks like you’re going to have to finally buy the “Ant-Man” Blu-ray (available for almost five months). It’s reported that the “preview” of the Marvel Studios movie playing in Discoveryland on and off since June last year will finally be replaced soon, with the Disney & Pixar Short Film Festival, an import from Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, taking its place.
