I'm not I swear, I know Duckburg bears no resemblance to Toon Town, it's the concept of a mini-land based on a specific set of characters stuck on the end of the park (as you say, it's all in the Duckburg discussion).

This sounds like a fun idea but, exactly what is the point/theme of it? Also, is this a hard ticket event or regular hours happening?
'Bling Bling'? 'Four-to-the-floor'? Oh dear. I haven't seen such desperate 'coolness' from the House of Mouse since the Totally Minnie days of the late '80s.
So basically it's the (re-branded) character express, some streetmosphere and extra characters plus Stars and Cars. A rehash of a two year 15th Anniversary celebration that insults the fact that everyone's favourite mouse will turn 80 in December.
But I agree, this celebration sounds awful. Nothing good has ever come out of a Disneyland Paris press report involving the phrase "party hardy" (or an equivalent). Let's just pray they don't hire a DJ again… We all remember the last time.
So when does this celebration begin? I am assuming it will be in April once the current one limps to a close in March although won't they need loads of time to facilitate the major changes that they will make to the Character Express between times?*
*See sentence one.
But yes, it sounds like they'll need lots of time to make the parks look "mousterrific!"
Despite all of the negative comments that I am throwing at this event, I must admit to being pleased that DLP are doing a celebration specifically based around Mickey (and presumably friends). Yes Mickey is a big presence in the parks and merchandising, but to have a 'party' for/about him is a nice gesture. After all, it did all start with a mouse. Shame its missing his birthday by several months though. I really hope that they are starting to plan his 100th now.
