Bougillumination Enchantée and Dreams of Christmas

Luckily for you, we’ve translated it…

Halloween festival launches to the power of 15

ImageThe official website and advertising materials have now officially launched for the 2007 Halloween season at Disneyland Resort Paris, with the tagline “Halloween to the power of 15″ and a style which suggests the festival may return more to its Frontierland roots following several slightly confused years. The launch also includes the new festival logo and some photos to advertise the Disney Villains’ Halloween Showtime

High School Musical On (an extended) Tour

ImageIt came out of nowhere in January 2006, but just last month its sequal scored the title of the most watched basic-cable television broadcast in US history with 17.2 million viewers. To call “High School Musical” a phenomenon wouldn’t even come close. And, for Walt Disney Studios Park, the success has provided a blockbuster summer and an extended run for High School Musical On Tour.

Alpha Bet You Are going to miss us, aren’t you?

Image“Following the letters, the letters, the letters…” goes the music of Alpha Bet You Are, the 25th Anniversary’s most unique piece of streetmosphere. But don’t follow them for too long, because before you know it you’ll be outside the park, in storage. The daily cavalcade of letters spelling the word “Disneyland” in character-themed costumes officially comes to an end on 30th September 2007.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios and what it means to Paris

ImageIf you haven’t already heard, Disney-MGM Studios is now officially no more. For only the third time in their history (following EPCOT Center and Euro Disneyland) Disney are renaming an entire park. Ending years of speculation, Walt Disney World have announced the new name — Disney’s Hollywood Studios — and a package of new additions to relaunch the renamed park. But what does this mean for Paris?

Ratatouille infests cinemas, nibbles on tasty tie-ins

ImageSo we’re pretty much agreed that people don’t go to Disneyland to look at advertising. But we shouldn’t give movie tie-ins a bad name — some of them can turn out pretty tasty. Pixar’s latest triumph Ratatouille is right now infesting cinemas in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain and Austria, leaving a trail of advertising for Disneyland Resort Paris and a couple of special free screenings for Shareholders and AP Dream holders.

‘Spooktacular’ Halloween for the 25th Anniversary

ImageA new press release has just been published confirming the main events for the 2007 Disney’s Halloween Festival. As expected, it’s a Halloween with a twist - the Pumpkinmen, Pink Witches, Stitch and the Disney Villains all return, but they’re going to be vying for attention against the regular 15th events, apparently continuing as normal. So no Maleficent dancing to “Tous en train!” then, sorry.

Toon Train brings “Lights, Camera, Musique!” to Front Lot

ImageIn pictures and video. If you’re a regular reader of our partner websites WDSfans.com or magicforum, you’ll have known all about the “Toon Train” - a new piece of streetmosphere for the Studios. But not Toon Studio, mind. This new Summer event might be more Toon-y than Toon Town itself, but infact it’s Front Lot which receives the extra “lights”, “camera” and “musique” from Chip, Dale and their female friend…

Bastille Day goes with a bang, without blunder

ImageIn pictures and video. If there’s one thing Disneyland can do well (when they’ve permission, at least), it’s big fireworks. Unfortunately, guests at the Bastille Day events of 2006 might not have been too sure, watching in confusion as none of the large shells burst into the sky as they should have done. For this 25th Anniversary year, though, luck hasn’t strayed from the side of the resort for one moment…
