Not very exciting, but very necessary!</p> <p>The "refurb" of our Home area is now complete, green walls are gone!</p> Fri, 26 Oct 2007 00:43:54 GMT dlrpmagic-2007-10-26-00-43-54 NEW: Guidebook contents page http://www.dlrpreview.com/guides/ <img src="http://www.dlrpreview.com/updates/0016.jpg" /> <p>With the launch of our 2007 Halloween guides, a new "Guidebook" concept was introduced for the first time. Now, the project has progressed further. All the menus across the website have now replaced "Guides" (previously "Resort Guides") with "Guidebook", giving a much clearer name and purpose to our most important section. <p>Today, our old Resort Guides homepage (which was originally introduced as a temporary index more than 4 months ago!) is replaced completely with the new <a href="http://www.dlrpreview.com/guides/">Guidebook contents page</a>. The page features a better introduction, clearer, colour-coded contents listing (which will be continued through the new guides) and a feed displaying the latest page additions and revisions. <p>The menu no doubt also gives a few clues for future Guidebook chapters as we aim to build a more "complete" guide to the resort. In the immediate future, however, the Halloween and soon Christmas season guides will now be taking priority. <ul><li><a href="http://www.dlrpreview.com/guides/">Guidebook >></a></li></ul> <p>Any comments or feedback are welcome via the <a href="http://www.dlrpreview.com/contact/">Contact Us</a> page! Thu, 25 Oct 2007 07:33:55 GMT dlrpmagic-2007-10-25-07-33-55 UPDATED: Extra Extra Magic Hours for December 2007! http://www.dlrpreview.com/guides/practical/extramagichours <img src="http://www.dlrpreview.com/guides/practical/extramagichours/4_image_1.jpg" /> <p>December 2007 now has <a href="http://www.dlrpreview.com/guides/practical/extramagichours">Extra Magic Hours</a> scheduled for every single morning at Disneyland Park, from the 1st to 31st! On New Year's Eve, the park will be operating (at least for hotel guests and Dream passholders) non-stop from 8am to 1am, a whole 17 hours! <p>Previously, the first 2 / 3 weeks had no EMH on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, but an update on the official website'guides/practical/extramagichours">Extra Magic Hours guide >></a></li></ul> Tue, 23 Oct 2007 00:34:27 GMT dlrpmagic-2007-10-23-00-34-27 UPDATED: Scheduled Closures 2007/08 http://www.dlrpreview.com/guides/practical/scheduledclosures/ <img src="http://www.dlrpreview.com/guides/practical/scheduledclosures/4_image_1.jpg" /> <p>The latest attraction refurbishments can now be found on our <a href="http://www.dlrpreview.com/guides/practical/scheduledclosures/">Scheduled Closures</a> calendar, adding a few more dates up until March 2008 and correcting the Casey Jr. closure which Disneyland Resort Paris recently modified. <p>More dates might still be to come for those later months, but hopefully this is a helpful rough guide for anyone currently planning a visit. <ul><li><a href="http://www.dlrpreview.com/guides/practical/scheduledclosures/">Scheduled Closures calendar >></a></li></ul> <p>Our thanks to DCP forum legend La Rouquine for these dates - boldly sharing the useful information DLRP apparently doesn't want to!

But wait a second... Come a little closer, turn another page... <p>Welcome to the first chapter in our new, online guidebook - a new concept in testing for the Resort Guides which is officially launched today. After five years, <strong>DLRP Magic!</strong> is being brave, ditching the coloured backgrounds and clunky designs to try something new... <p>The colours are still there, but more discreet. The design is simplied into two columns - like the pages of a guidebook - and a "fold-out" side menu, for far easier navigation through each "chapter". The style of the text has changed slightly to a more plain informative style - see our <em>"Halloween en France?"</em> section for an example - and images are spread throughout the page, rather than confined to one single sidebar. <p>It's a guidebook with quick links to other pages, images which can be expanded full-size and information always up-to-date with the latest events. And it'guides/seasons/halloween/2007/">Disney'guides/seasons/halloween/2007/">So, what'contact/">Contact Us</a> form for this. Mon, 15 Oct 2007 14:59:08 GMT dlrpmagic-2007-10-15-14-59-08 Welcome Home... to our new homepage! http://www.dlrpreview.com/ <img src="http://www.dlrpreview.com/updates/0010.jpg" /> <p><strong>DLRP Magic!</strong> is officially five years old this month! As part of our very own anniversary, you might have noticed the new <a href="">Homepage</a> which recently launched. We hope you like it. It's wider, flashier and a little more useful. After over a week of tweaking the design, it seems about time we introduce the new features and changes... <p><strong>Welcome</strong> - provides a more simplified introduction to the sections of the website. The previous design featured only a single-line "Welcome", so this is something which needed expanding for new visitors. <p><strong>Billboard</strong> - the large image has always been a feature of the homepage, but always static and unchangeable - until now. The new main image cycles through a selection of colourful links to the latest features on the website and at Disneyland, quickly updated for any "newsflashes". <p><strong>Featured Video</strong> - a video is now featured on the homepage, adding some more interest to the page - and word-of-mouth for Tower of Terror, right now. <p><strong>Disneyland Outlook</strong> - for years, we've wanted to be able to present the latest weather forecast seamlessly in the site, and thanks to the BBC's RSS feeds it'weblinks/">Web Links</a> sections all redesigned.

Originally using a free hosting page template with the latest Pin Trading releases, we then launched our very own ".com" in June 2003... et voila, here we are! <em>DLRP Today</em> joined the site in July 2006 and <em>DLRP Magic!</em> is now the most visited english-language Disneyland Resort Paris website in the world, thanks in no small part to its long-running partnership with <em>Photos Magiques</em> and <em>magicforum</em>. <p>Now, after five years of magic online, it's over to <strong>YOU</strong>. <p><strong><em><a href="http://www.dlrpreview.com/">DLRP Review</a></em></strong> is a brand new website from <em>DLRP Magic!</em>, a place where you can rate, review and post tips for <em>everything</em> at Disneyland Resort Paris - attractions, entertainment, restaurants, boutiques and hotels. Share your experiences, help others with tips and give star ratings to <em>your</em> top destinations in this magical kingdom.</p> <p>Designed to compliment our existing Guides which have built up over the past five years, <strong><em><a href="http://www.dlrpreview.com/">DLRP Review</a></em></strong> now puts you in control, to create a user-generated guidebook of the most unmissable pieces of Disneyland Resort Paris. We all know the challenge of time against our Disney dreams, so this is your chance to help others plan their visit and spend their time as wisely as possible. <strong><em>DLRP Magic!</em></strong> presents the magic, its story and its history, <strong><em>DLRP Review</em></strong> let's YOU review it. <p>We're still in a "Beta" phase right now and the entire system and website is far from complete! Bear with us as more resort locations are added for your reviewing pleasure, and more design features and menu pages introduced to bring the entire website together.</p> <p>Please, register now and enjoy the website! The success of this project is entirely in your hands. <p><a href="http://www.dlrpreview.com/">DLRP Review</a> is your land - we hope you enjoy it!</p> <p><em><strong>- Anthony</strong>, dlrpreview.com</em> <ul><li><a href="http://www.dlrpreview.com/">Start voting and reviewing at dlrpReview.com >></a></li></ul> Sun, 09 Sep 2007 18:38:45 GMT dlrpmagic-2007-09-09-18-38-45 NEW: More DLRP Magic!
