Swing into Spring: It’s Official!

Today, our friends over at DLRP Express revealed the logo for the upcoming Swing into Spring festival that begins next month – and with it the final confirmation that the event will actually be happening. The press release reads as follows:

Swing into a Disney Spring, blooming with magic at Disneyland® Paris. Color and music blossom throughout Disneyland® Park. And with the smell of flowers and fun in the air, it’s sure to be magnifiScent.

This confirms that flowers and music will be making up the big parts of this new festival – on top of that, new logos were revealed giving the fans their first glimpse of what kind of look and feel we can be expecting from the event. – Let’s remember that none of this, so far, comes from Disney directly.

It’s only a start, but this bodes very well for the spring festival; these are beautiful visuals that should tie us over for a few days and give us promise for the future. It was just yesterday that people were doubting that this information would even come. But now we need more, what does this event consist of, what can we expect? But what a wonderful starting point, a new season full of promise. It can only get better from here. I, for one, cannot wait to see this season evolve; spring is a beautiful time of year – done right, this season could be one of the jewels in the Disneyland Paris crowns.

More as soon as we get it!

Ratatouille: More details begin to emerge.

La Place de Remy Bollard

Details on the new Ratatouille ride seem to appear as fast as the average Anglophone can say ‘Ratatouille: L’aventure totatelement Toquée de Rémy’ correctly. But let’s not let that stop us.

Well, yesterday (5th March 2014) a press release appeared hidden away in a dark corner of the internet. It, effectively summarised the AGM news from a few weeks ago with a few minor details added. Ready for them?

  • The ride will take place in Gusteau’s restaurant.
  • The ride will take us from the rooftops of Paris, to the kitchen via the cold storage room and the dining room.
  • The restaurant depicted in the ride will be watched over by Chef Skinner (as expected from the concept art).
  • Confirmation that the restaurant will serve Ratatouille.

So, whilst not a lot of new information – this does come as confirmation from Disneyland Paris. Little by little more information is being revealed about this ride, and it’s becoming very exciting.

In other Ratatouille news, scaffolding is being taken down across the Place de Rémy revealing stunning realistic Parisian street. If this is the direction that Walt Disney Studios want to take in all the future projects, we can be satisfied.

One of the best things about this project is the level of detail going into the build of the area – it really does look like we’re going to be immersed in Rémy’s world, it’s going to be very interesting to follow this project further and further down the line. Which, of course, you can do on our Ratatouille Tracker – which is now linked from the top of every page on the website – and coming soon (next month) our Ratatouille mini-site, which will allow you to discover the attraction in even more beautiful detail!

Ratatouille: L’Aventure Totalement Toquée de Rémy opens this Summer in the Walt Disney Studios Park along with the Bistrot Chez Rémy boutique. The Souvenirs chez Marianne will open later in the year and will offer a breath of fresh air to all Disneyland Paris fans as we stroll down the Parisian street saying ‘This is what a Disney park should look like’.
