Park News - (1/10/2024) Disneyland Paris has launched an incredible new nighttime spectacular called “Disney Symphony of Colours” that starts off with the Disney Electrical Sky Parade. The Sky Parade uses an army of aerial drones with lights to create an amazing display over the park. Follow the link for more details or watch the video preview of the show below.
(12/21/2023) Dronisos, an expert in the development of drone sky shows, will team with Disneyland Paris to unveil an all new night show starting on Jan. 8th, 2024 called “Disney Electrical Sky Parade”. The new 500-drone show is inspired by the former Main Street Electrcial Parade and seeking to create a sort of refreshed concept of the classic, but high in the night sky over the park.
This is the third drone show Dronisos has done with Disneyland Paris, following the previous “Disney D-Light” and “Avengers: Power the Night” productions.
(12/10/2023) Disneyland Paris has created a new poster for the planned reopening of the renovated Autopia attraction, set to take place on December 18th.
(11/27/2023) Disneyland Paris revealed some new information about the park’s new Symphony of Colors night spectacular that will mix lights, projections, music, pyro and a fleet of aerial drone lights.
(10/1/2023) Disneyland Paris has confirmed that their Disneyland Hotel will reopen to guests on January 25, 2024. They’ve posted a new page regarding the new features from the re-imagined premier hotel of the Disneyland Paris resort.
Spring 2024 - Star Tours - New Adventures - (9/9/2023) We’ve been waiting on an update about the expanded experiences that were previously announced to be coming to the Star Tours attraction at Disneyland, Walt Disney World and Disneyland Paris. According to an update from DestinationD23, these new adventures will be coming in Spring 2024, and will include the addition of the Ahsoka character.
(4/12/2023) Disney has confirmed that new adventures will be coming to Star Tours in 2024 at Walt Disney World, Disneyland and Disneyland Paris. No solid details were given as to what locations will be added to the randomizing adventure machine, but ever since the second generation Star Tours attraction opened, new adventures in all new locations have been added on a regular basis. Past additions were timed to go along with adventures and locations from the new films as they were released, so if I had to guess I wouldn’t be surprised if we encounter some of the new people, places and ships from the various Disney+ series in one form or another. This could mean appearances by Mando and Grogu, Ahsoka Tano, Admiral Thrawn, Andor and more, so stay tuned!
???? through 2024 - Major New Attractions - Planned - (1/31/19) Screamscape sources tell us that Disneyland Paris may have been allocated some new funds to create two major new attractions at the park between 2022 and 2024. While one of the rides is still unknown (maybe the Indiana Jones rumor below?), the other attraction said to be coming would be a clone of the “Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway” attraction opening later this year at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida. I can only imagine that Disney execs may be rather high on the new ride concept at this point as unconfirmed rumors of yet another clone of this same ride indicated it would also go to Disneyland in California.
There is lots of time between now and when these projects would get started through… enough time for the plans change entirely, but for now this seems to be the park’s short-term 5-year plan of expansion.
(11/23/17) According to Forbes, Disney is now planning on adding some kind of “major new attraction” to Disneyland Paris in 2024 as part of a massive new investment into the property now that they have full control over the property. Other new additions and capital expenditure projects planned over the next decade include upgrades to several hotel properties as well as adding Marvel themed attractions to the Walt Disney Studios Paris theme park.
2024 through 2026 - Disney Village Update - (6/21/2023) Disneyland Paris has announced the next step in the evolution of the Disney Village area at the resort. Over a two-year period, starting in 2024, “all the shops and facades from Disney Store to Disney Fashion Jr will be progressively modified. These large-scale renovations will follow the opening of Rosalie, a new French-inspired brasserie, scheduled for opening at the end of the year.“
Construction work will be done in two phases to minimize the impact to resort guests. Phase one, starting in early 2024 will include the updates to Disney Fashion, Disney Fashion Jr and The Disney Gallery.
???? - Future 3rd Park Plans - (2/17/20) According to the local news an agreement was made between the local government and The Walt Disney company that will see a deadline to commit to building a third theme park for the Disneyland Paris Resort extended by an extra ten years. The new date now lists 2036 as the deadline in which to make the decision to build a third park in the Marne-la-Vallee location, however there is also a requirement now set in place that attendance at the theme park resort will also have to rise to 22 million guests a year as well by 2036.
With attendance currently around 15 million guests a year, it would seem that this may likely be a reason behind the massive plans announced to extend the Walt Disney Studios theme park by adding several new themed lands and attractions, such as the Avengers Campus, a Frozen land, and even a Star Wars themed land as well as a lagoon for a night show. Should Disney not be able to meet the attendance level by 2036, there are measures in place to vote on another timeline extension, otherwise it gives the government the rights to sell off the land being held for Disney to other projects.
