The two sides of DLP, both current pictures of Frontierland:





You could make a similar post with the east and west wings of Newport Bay Club, but we know that'll all be fixed by September of next year. Will Frontierland?

@InsideDLParis on twitter suggested that the Studios entrance area will be getting a 30s style renovation.

The Halloween season at Disneyland Paris started today. The Mickey's Halloween Celebration Cavalcade has received a new float:

The old Dreams of Power float from the Once Upon A Dream Parade has been dusted of for a Villains Promenade:

Looking forward to when all of MS looks like this.

Space Mountain is now confirmed to be closed for rehab starting January 12th. How long it will last is not known at this time, but it is expected to be the major refurbishment like Indiana Jones had this year.
Oh!!!! :eek: :jawdrop: :inlove:

Now I only need to hear that they will restore it to "De la Terre a la Lune" and I will be booking my next trip to Paris!!! But even just a normal major refurbishment would be the best news in a long time (yes, better than the Rat opening for me).

What was the old version like? I've been on Mission 2 a few times, and it reminds me of RnRC but in Space. Was the old one more similar to WDW and DL?

It was themed after the Jules Verne book De la Terre a la Lune (from the earth to the moon) and you were going to the ceremony at the Baltimore club that sends rockets with the Columbiad cannon to the moon. And that is what you got to experience. I think it is where the supernova is now that there was this huge smiling moon and you passed it by very slowly and returned to Earth. I think it is the best storytelling I have ever experienced in a roller coaster. The music was fantastic, too.

As always, @marni1971 has a great video:

A few things from my trip yesterday.

I went on the Molly Brown, and it (she?) is in substantially better condition than the Mark Twain. That being said, there was something that truly appalled me during the ride: what I can only guess is an animatronic figure in a body bag. I have no idea what that used to be, but it actually made me really sad.


Also, this maintenance area that is clearly visible:



Mr. Moose could use a good cleaning.

One thing that irked me was the English pronunciation of "Maleficent" when they announced the villains cavalcade. I could have sworn they said "Malefficient." Twice. But on the other hand, they do their villains well. Gaston is spectacular as usual, and I love the fact that they have Frollo.

(I was going to add a few more pictures, but my ethernet cord decided to conk out on me, and my neighbors' wifi networks aren't strong enough to upload photos :/ )

Relating to the talk of DLP refurbs and refreshes, was reading my local paper online today and they had an article about some of the ideas being thrown around to fix up the 2 parks. I haven't seen this anywhere else on the forums so I thought I would post. I was surprised to find the article quotes a petition about saving DLP, considering the real reason they are investing is likely just the financial bankruptcy angle.
