    If DLP has those costumes then why are they not used more? Why does it take a royal request to get Huey and Dewey (but bizarrely not Louie!) out of mothballs?!

    I'm not sure, but I think the reason is that for each character used ED SCA has to pay a fee to TWDC. The more characters they use, the more they have to pay.

    That would certainly explain the over-use of such characters as Friar Tuck, Tigger and Wendell the Country Bear.

    But I am not happy that DLP have Huey, Dewey and Louie costumes and never uses them! Particularly considering the massive popularity of the Disney Ducks in most European countries.

    Bad guess.
    Lots of CMs from "disneycentralplaza" confirmed that the prince was not the prince "Al-Walid".
    And for information, he's a shareholder like me. 10 % of ED SCA !!!

    Louie was also part of the show and can be seen here in this video.



    I was under the impression that the show part was being scraped for Cars and Cars and it was just going to become just a cavalcade though the Studios. I like that several of the Characters are wearing more detailed and designed costumes to what they would usually wear for this particular entertainment.

    Anyway I think its poor to see this kind of effort go into this production because a VIP Prince has decided to visit the Resort. Euro Disney should be trying to look after its Guests more instead of trying to please some Prince.

    I think every other Disney resort would do the same if someone comes and is willing to pay for it. If I'm not mistaken, Disneyland in Anaheim stayed open for VIPs after the park closed.

    I believe the very rich are able to hire out the parks. But from what I am gathering from the information being provided this was a request that Management granted for the Prince. And its not the first time we have seen Disneyland Paris put on a show on a larger scale when its wanting to impress someone. The lavish shows put on for the media each year are in another league compared to the crap put on for the paying Guests each day.

    Even the recent media ceremony's put on at Disneyland in California for Mermaid and Star Tours were much more low key compared to the Magical Moments Festival Media launch event that Paris put on earlier this year.

    I know what you mean, but I think I read somewhere, maybe it was even here or on one of the French boards, that he paid a million Euros. Of course that may not be true, because that's a lot of money for adding more characters to the parade.

    If thats true than thats an incredible and ridiculous amount of money for a bunch of Characters. No wonder Goofy, Chip N Dale and so many others are all dressed in new costumes. I hope the money made will be put to good use if true.

    But the thing is all of these special characters are not from dlrp but from Tokyo! The prince paid about one million euro for his visit. Thats why there more performers and characters in the shows/parades. It was not every day, its just one thing each day that they do for the prince...
