The Twilight Zone means business, plus a new commercial

ImageThe Twilight Zone means business, and not simply with its faster-than-gravity drop. For Disneyland Resort Paris, the opening of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is their biggest new attraction launch for years, and a great chance for new and bigger business. The aptly-named DLRP Business Solutions are well aware — since last week, already advertising a very special elevator drop…

Rendez-Vous des… Rats?

ImageThe changes reported in late July for Rendez-Vous des Stars Restaurant at Walt Disney Studios Park have indeed taken place, and the park now finally holds a dining option more exclusive than counter service and more glamorous than cafeteria service (or ‘buffeteria’ as they insisted). However, one thing no-one expected was the new head chef of the reworked establishment…

Bougillumination Enchantée and Dreams of Christmas

Luckily for you, we’ve translated it…

Secrets of Hollywood revealed in new concept art

ImageWhen the Imagineers presented Disney Studio 1, they commented that it presents “a Hollywood that only truly exists in our dreams.” The same could have been said for Hollywood Boulevard until recently — a project we’ve watched grow for several months, but never seen a true vision of their plans for.

Elevator doors, drainpipes and fastpass

ImageIt’s a time of fast progress at The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror as the deadline begins to loom more imposing than the 13th floor of this monster.

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.

The daily cavalcade of letters spelling the word “Disneyland” in character-themed costumes officially comes to an end on 30th September 2007.

New buildings behind the walls of Critter Corral

ImageAs word continues to spread about the future of Critter Corral and the Cottonwood Creek Ranch area of Frontierland, maybe we should mark the final few months when this corner of the Western landscape presents “life on the ranch” as you’d expect it in plain reality — painfully quiet. Clues and surprises for the future can be found behind the famous green construction fences themselves…

ImageDon’t worry, DLRP Today isn’t branching out into stock market reports — at Walt Disney Studios Park, there’s both movie magic in the making and movie magic in the process of being ripped apart. The Hollywood Boulevard project, after several weeks of important but less noticable progress on its façades, suddenly enjoyed a landmark week of changes to its new — and old — landmarks.
