John Lasseter meets the Disneyland Paris Ambassadors – “I’m only here for the Castle!”

Friday, 22nd July 2011 at 19:45

Yeah sure, John. During his European publicity tour for Cars 2, which included hosting a special showing of the film for fans in Paris, John Lasseter also dropped into Disneyland Park on Wednesday. Stopping for this photo at around 2pm with the 2011-12 Disneyland Paris Ambassadors Régis Alart and Osvaldo del Mistero, Pixar’s creative chief had the pleasure of seeing Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant nearing the end of its lengthy restoration, complete with newly-returned golden spires.

We also completely missed, in yesterday’s excitement, that this would have been John Lasseter’s first ever visit to Toy Story Playland, a land he had much creative input in. Better to see it here, and when the leaves are on the trees, than as a sore thumb at Hong Kong Disneyland

    Did Lasseter say “I’m only here for the castle” ?

  • @Mathieu – No, just a joke regarding his visit to the Ratatouille site!

    Ha Ha Ha Eurodisney’s poor attempt at hiding his real reason to visit the resort but who comes to a Theme Park just for the Castle (noone)or is this only thing that top dogs at TWDC are concerned about one aspect of the Park experience.

    yeah, not a fan of the golden spires, too many refurbishments going on just now, and what’s going on with the robinson family treehouse, I keep heading there by mistake only to realise that it’s still closed, of course every time having to re-route through le ventre de le terre. First visit to toy story playland, huh? I bet he got surprised when he tried out the RC racer, I sure did :)
