Hello everyone, I’m happy to bring you the first of two big updates from the Disneyland Paris Resort. This report will wrap up the holiday season as the park transitions to its regular look. But that’s not all that’s in transition, two beloved attractions will also transition with some pretty radical changes. Don’t forget to check back tomorrow for something really amazing.

After more than 13 months of renovation Frontierland looks stunning. It looks even better at night. The atmosphere is striking and mesmerizing. The Thunder Mesa Riverboat Landing is really the best spot to admire the Land! The geysers are fully restored, a real show, and their reflections in the water is sublime.
