The weather in Paris has been painfully cold this year, and it seems to have had an effect on the attendance at Disneyland Paris. The lack of guests at the park during the chilly early morning hours has created an opportunity for some great photos. Alain Littaye of the Disney and more blog shares some of these photos in another of his wonderful Disneyland Paris update. ~~Rick
Hope you all had a great Easter! Here’s a Disneyland Paris update with great pictures shot by Max Fan, D&M contributor and Dlrp Welcome webmaster. All pictures were shot at park opening, that’s why you’ll see almost no guests in the photos. It may also be due to the fact that it’s so bloody cold right now in Paris. At O degrees celsius in the morning, guests probably wait a few hours before rushing in the parks. Max is obviously not afraid to face the harsh cold temperatures and shares these photos taken during the morning “magic hour”. The light is fantastic at that time.
First up, we’ll have a look at the Walt Disney Studios as well as work on the Ratatouille ride – theming has began on the show building facade!
Here we go, starting by the Walt Disney Studios entrance.
On to the Backlot!
There is a small cafe near the Moteurs Action Stunt Show called “Cafe des Cascadeurs” which I like a lot – especially the inside. I’ve rarely posted pictures of it, so I’m glad that Max did and here it is. Unfortunately it’s often closed, specially in low season.
Back to Toon Studio where the Magic Carpet ride is apparently under maintenance.
Here are the latest pictures of the Ratatouille ride site. As you will see, theming has obviously begun on the right side of the show building where WDS Imagineers must create the look of parisian facades.
More photos by the entrance.
Good news, the cup of coffee on the billboard above Main Street Motors is back in place after refurbishment!
Apparently a Tangled tower has been added at Story Book Land…
A few more shots of Adventureland and Frontierland.
