wdsmarvel

Disneyland Paris revealed today plans to re-theme their Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starting Aerosmith at the Walt Disney Studios Park to a Marvel-themed attraction.  Their plan is to bring Marvel Super Heroes to life in an epic way with a Marvel-themed attraction.

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster  will close in May 2018 for the transformation to begin.

The news comes from Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek during the D23 Expo Japan, where more than 2000 fans were the first to hear about the latest projects in development for Disney guests all over the world, including those for Disneyland Paris.

The new development builds on the momentum of the resort’s 25th Anniversary celebration and follows the recent news that Walt Disney Parks and Resorts is preparing to incorporate more popular stories and characters into Europe’s top tourist destination, giving Disneyland Paris guests even more entertainment experiences and attractions.

New Marvel-Themed Attraction
Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith will be completely reimagined into a new Marvel-themed attraction where riders will team up with Iron Man and their favourite Avengers on a high-speed, hyper-kinetic adventure.

The addition of the new attraction provides a permanent presence of Marvel making this Park even more of a must-do for guests.

Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel
Additionally Disney’s Hotel New York® will soon be re-imagined to become Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel, becoming the first Disney Hotel to showcase the thrilling world of the Avengers. With exclusive artwork and a new design, it will be a residence fit for Tony Stark himself.

 

More Marvel Now!
And for guests who can’t wait to experience Marvel at Disneyland Paris, The Avengers will assemble this June during Marvel Summer of Super Heroes, which will bring guests face-to-face with Captain America, Spider-Man, Star-Lord and Black Widow. These heroes will also take the stage in a live-action super-production featuring cutting-edge special effects, spectacular projections, and lots of other surprises.

“These ambitious Marvel developments across Disneyland Paris will create brand new immersive Super Hero experiences for our guests, and will enhance the overall appeal of our resort,” said Catherine Powell, Présidente of Euro Disney S.A.S.

Conferences

If you’re a fan of Disney Imagineers and want to hear some of their best kept secrets, then these are the add-ons for you. Once you’ve booked your package, just add one of these amazing extras and you’ll enjoy an exclusive conference with Disney Imagineers in Animagique Theatre.

• “Insights with Disney Imagineering” : £22***
Tom Fitzgerald, Portfolio Creative Executive Walt Disney Imagineering

• “A Duffy & Friends panel with…” £22***

***To access conferences at Animagique Theatre, Guests need a valid Disney FanDaze Inaugural Party ticket.

 


What does Duffy think….

Duffy’s opinion is going to be controversial, but he does not believe that Disneyland Paris should be  organising these Disney FanDaze character parties.  The mentioned  fifty Disney characters appearing at the event should be making Meet ‘n’ Greet, appearances in the parks on a daily basis for all Disney fans and resort guests to meet.  Like they are at other Disney resorts around the world.

Euro Disney are once again targeting their existing fan base and regular customers and not trying to attract the new returning guests that the resorts desperately requires to ensure a secure financial future for the resort.

tron

Duffy would rather Disneyland Paris invests in a new E-Ticket attraction in the Disneyland Park to attract more visitors to the resort.  The construction of the rumoured  TRON Lightcycle Power Run roller coaster would be a wonderful addition to Discoveryland in the Disneyland Park, which has not seen a new attraction built since 1995 when Space Mountain: De la Terre à la Lune opened.

Could Duffy’s dream become a reality, well since the ride  opened at Shanghai Disneyland in 2016, it has proved very popular with guests and a second TRON coaster is set to open at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom in 2021.

The package prices for the Fan Daze event are just too expensive for the average Disney fan to afford.  The cost of this one night event is the equivalent to a four night trip, and with no concessions or discounts  for Annual Pass holders this is going to cause a lot of controversy within the Disneyland Paris fan community.

Hopefully when standalone tickets are released in the Spring they will be at a reasonable price, compatible to the Halloween Soirée and with an Annual Pass discount.

But one thing is for certain with Marilyn Magness and Emmanuel Lenormand involved in the organisation of the Disney FanDaze event, the Inaugural Party being held during the weekend of 1 – 3 June 2018, at the Walt Disney Studios Park is sure to be an amazing event for all Disney character fans to enjoy – if they can afford to attend.

The Enchanted Advent Calendar arrives at Disneyland Paris

New this year from December 1st to the 25th, at the foot of the Sleeping Beauty Castle, at Disneyland Paris is the Enchanted Advent Calendar which is highlighting the festive and original creations from Les Délices de Minnie and products from the resort’s  boutiques. 

The Advent Calendar is the result of a  collaborative effort from the resorts Food & Beverage, Merchandise, and Entertainment teams.

Every day when the Disneyland Park opens, the mayor of Main Street, U.S.A. and his assistant will pick a lucky child to open one of the calendar’s windows using a crank handle. 

Behind each window is a Golden Ticket which the child can swap for an enchanted surprise – mouthwatering Christmas sweets, or a gift from our boutiques in the spirit of the season! 

These carefully-selected products will also be available in some of the resort’s retail or restauration points, sometimes for a limited time. All the ingredients for an unforgettable Christmas!

The Advent calendar can be found on Central Plaza, is 2.04 metres wide and 4m10 high.
