spring festival: the springtime celebration we’ve all been unsure of for months has been confirmed in a press release from DLP, presumably sent out to bloggers and fansites. still no word on the official dates, though, and still no mention of the event on the resort’s facebook or twitter pages, or on the official site.
with less than a month to go until the supposed start of the festival, i’m actually really surprised that more of a big deal hasn’t been made of this? when i saw that the celebration had been confirmed i felt quite excited and was hoping for some new information, but the copy from the press release (“swing into a disney spring blooming with magic at disneyland ® paris. colour and music blossom throughout disneyland ® park. and with the smell of flowers and fun in the air, it’s safe to be magnifiSCENT”) really doesn’t give much more away at all. i’m glad that the festival has been confirmed, but most fans were 90% sure this was the case anyway, as DLP-affiliated twitter and fan pages have been discussing the theme for months. let’s keep our fingers crossed for some new and exciting information over the next few weeks!
june refurbs + opening times - do we smell a rat?: i myself was overjoyed to see the june closures finally announced, as i am next visiting DLP in june and i have had a recurring nightmare for several months now that all of my favourite rides will be closed when i get there. luckily that isn’t the case, but when my excitement had subsided a bit i noticed that DLRP today has published a very interesting blog post that focuses on the june opening and closing times.
have a read:
“first, there’s a very unusual 6pm closing time at walt disney studios park on saturday 21st june. this is the first and only saturday in 2014 where the park will close at 6pm, not 7pm. this can often hint at an after-hours private event…a special preview, or even a press event, perhaps? something must be planned for that date.
then, it’s interesting to notice the park’s weekday schedule changes from a 6pm closing to 7pm from monday, 23rd june. this could just be park switching into busier summer mode, but it also just happens to match the 23rd/28th june dates rumoured by some sources for a “soft opening” of the new attraction…”
what do you guys think? like the post says, it could be nothing more than the beginning of the summer season, but it’s definitely interesting that it ties in with rumoured soft opening dates. watch this space!
Anonymous asked: Where are those concept pictures of all the lands coming from? I would like to see the whole picture, and maybe get it printed and framed!
hi! i found them on a statigram page, but i believe they are from an original park map of euro disney, which might be available online if you scout around a little :) i have a feeling it was taken from a book, but i’m not 100% sure. they’re lovely pictures aren’t they, i was considering doing the same thing!
poptartsandsprinkles asked: Hi there. :) I've recently started collecting Disney pins. Is there any good websites where I can buy specific ones? Where I can choose which characters I want?
hey! you can buy disney pins from your local disney store site or alternatively, a lot of people sell them on ebay. i have also noticed a newer trend of people posting photos of their pins on instagram and taking bids that way, so that might be worth looking into, too :)
