Weekly News: Ratatouille and Imagination Castles

Weekly News banner 12th May

A slow week for Disneyland Paris news, but that doesn’t mean that there is nothing at all to talk about. An important milestone was passed on Saturday as we are now officially two months until the opening of Ratatouille.

Ratatouille s’avance

Can you believe it. We are now under two months away from the grand opening of Disneyland Paris’ newest attraction and along with it, a brand new area themed to the Paris of Disney Pixar’s RatatouilleLa Place de Rémy features a beautifully themed Parisian street showing off the best that imagineering can do. But for many months, it has been asked how the tower of the costuming building will be hidden. In a world where theme is everything, surely Disney wouldn’t leave a major eyesore on the horizon? Fear not Disneyland Paris fans, as this week the tower was covered in a market style covering.

Creation of a vegetable garden at Disney’s Hotel Cheyenne

In preparation for the opening of the Bistrot Chez Rémy in the Walt Disney Studios park, Disneyland Paris have created a vegetable garden located next to the Hotel Cheyenne in order to grow all the ingredients that will be needed to create the traditional French dish ‘Ratatouille’.

Imagination Castle on display at the Jardin des Tuileries

This weekend, just 45 minutes away on the RER A from Disneyland Paris, you would have  found a little piece of Disneyland Paris in Paris. For one weekend only, the imagination castle made it’s appearance in Paris’ iconic gardens leading from the Place de la Concorde to the Louvre art gallery. It follows a lengthy advertising campaign aimed at children to submit fantasy castle ideas in the form of drawings. A judging process took place, and the final castle created and built.

What was perhaps just as striking as the castle was what would have greeted you at the Metro station Concorde. Imagine all the people passing through this station – this is advertising at it’s best for the Parisian resort.
