Weekly News: Rats and Spiders in Disneyland Paris

Weekly News 21st April banner

This week’s news is a short one. Why? Because I was in Disneyland Paris and so didn’t really manage to catch up with much in the way of news. What I can promise you though, is two big pieces of news and a series of articles about my trip are on the way. – In case you didn’t keep up with my constant tweeting, the new spring festivities have been done very well and lead to perhaps my favourite trip ever.

Ratatouille: Opens 10th July

You’ve been waiting years for this news, Ratatouille: L’Aventure totalement toquée de Rémy opens on the 10th July 2014. Yes, that’s right: from July 10th you’ll be able to shrink down to the size of a rat and eat food in a rat sized restaurant. This news came after months of waiting on the part of Disneyland Paris fans with speculation ranging from the day of the French National Holiday (14th July – mark that in your diaries as a day to avoid DLP) to the 7th July. See – as a community we were never that far off! A full report of developments will come in the coming days as I bring you some photo updates from the construction site. For now though, watch and marvel at this fantastic YouTube video released by Disneyland Paris:

From the 19th April – Meet Spider-Man at the Walt Disney Studios Park

Marvel has finally landed at the Walt Disney Studios Park in Disneyland Paris with the limited opening of a new Spider-Man meet and greet. From the 19th April until the 14th July head to Backlot and meet the masked hero himself and get onto the front cover of the Daily Bugle.

Is this a good addition to the Disneyland Paris lineup? Will you be queuing to take a picture with him? Would you like more MARVEL characters in the Studios park?

One last thing….

I’ve got lots of articles to write detailing my trip to Disneyland Paris soon. I hope to have them up as soon as possible. Also, Disneyland Paris e-mailed round restaurant opening hours for the next six months to fansites – As I received the information, I hope to make it available in some form to you all as a useful trip planning tool.

Thank you for following my live tweets – they are all still available to read here on this website.
