A few of the Disney fan sites have been reporting, that Disney Paris has announced that the renovations
and updating of Phantom Manor are "taking longer than expected." So the intended re-opening in
the Fall, has been pushed to "early 2019." Ah well, these things take time. :smile:

But the photo posted at one of the sites made me smile. It's like they removed the entire Manor and
replaced it with a box, painted with the building on it. Looks bizarre!
Photo found at LaughingPlace.com thanks!

A monstrously crazy Halloween at Disneyland Paris celebratin

Postby filipv » Tue Aug 07, 2018 1:43 am

To celebrate 90 years of Mickey, Disneyland Paris is organising a huge birthday bash with a very special programme. The kick-off whistle for this “Mickey 90 Mouse Party” will be blown on 1st October, with a new Halloween season that will put the spotlight on the most famous mouse in the history of animation.

This year, Halloween promises to be a wickedly wonderful party and will also celebrate Mickey himself. He will steal the show with a brand new float designed especially for him, in the mini Halloween parade. A new attraction called “Mickey and his PhilharMagic Orchestra” will make its appearance at Discoveryland. Lastly, there’s no Halloween without the “Disney Villains”. Get ready to shiver with some unparalleled encounters and a spectacular show… Don’t wait any longer to check out the programme:

Mickey’s Halloween Cavalcade
It is the most eagerly awaited parade of the season. Mickey’s Halloween Cavalcade is finally back with a bespoke addition: a brand new float called “Mickey’s Illusion Manor”. Why this name? Because it will celebrate 90 years of imagination in the most mischievous of ways, with apparitions and disappearances… Yes, Mickey can’t wait to play some tricks on you! What’s more, he’ll have help from some strange zombies and the three pranksters Huey, Dewey, and Louie, Scrooge’s nephews. No reason to panic though, as Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Chip and Dale, the Three Little Pigs, and many others will parade in their own floats, which will all exude cheerfulness and autumn colours.

New attraction: “Mickey and his PhilharMagic Orchestra”*
The “Mickey 90 Mouse Party” will mark the arrival, on 1st October 2018, of a brand new attraction in Europe: “Mickey and his PhilharMagic Orchestra”. Get ready to enjoy a new 4D experience at the Discoveryland Theatre. Once seated, you will find Mickey and Donald on the big screen. They will cast you into the very heart of some of the greatest Disney classics such as Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, and The Lion King, with new misadventures caused by the out-of-control Donald Duck. It will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have fun with Disney’s most popular songs and to celebrate 90 years of Mickey in style.
*The attraction “Mickey and his PhilharMagic Orchestra” will remain open after the Halloween season

Face to face with the Disney Villains
Halloween is also THE season of all possibilities, especially for those who are dying to mingle with the most famous Disney Villains! The terrifying Maleficent will cast a spell to transform the courtyard of Sleeping Beauty Castle into a huge briar bush. The briar bush will take the shape of her ominous dragon… The most daring will be able to come meet her to take a photo together or simply enjoy a diabolical chat.

Many Disney Villains invite you to their show “It’s Good to be Bad with the Disney Villains!” at the Castle Theatre. You will see the Queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Cruella (101 Dalmatians), Captain Hook (Peter Pan), the Queen of Hearts (Alice in Wonderland), Jafar (Aladdin), Gaston (Beauty and the Beast), Frollo (The Hunchback of Notre-Dame), Dr Facilier (The Princess and the Frog), but also Cinderella’s stepsisters and stepmother, Drizella, Anastasia, and Lady Tremaine. An intruder will hide within the show. The intruder in question is Donald, who will dress up like Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty) so that he can party with the Disney Villains.

Good news – the Disney Villains you will see on stage will certainly be dying to meet you. They will come up to you after the finale and will take malicious delight in posing for photos next to you. As you can see, it will be THE event not to miss.

Even more encounters with Halloween stars
While the Disney Villains are preparing to invade Disneyland Park to celebrate their favourite season, they will not be the only ones! Minnie, Stitch, Goofy, José Carioca and Panchito Pistoles (Donald’s partners in crime in the film The Three Caballeros) or even the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland promise new unforgettable encounters. A word of advice: don’t forget to grab the programme and map at the entrance to the Disney Parks to make sure you don’t miss anything.

In terms of decorations, every effort will be made to help you soak in several monstrously crazy and colourful atmospheres! Ghosts and pumpkins will invade Main Street, U.S.A., as well as Frontierland. Colourful, tall sculptures will also have their place at the heart of the festivities. And throughout the season, at the Fuente del Oro restaurant, you will be able to encounter the puppet of Miguel, the star of the Disney/Pixar film Coco.

The Halloween season takes place from 1st October to 4th November 2018. The “Mickey 90 Mouse Party” will be followed by a new Christmas season, full of surprises!

Unlimited FastPass at Disneyland Paris will cost 150 euros

Disneyland Paris introduces several paid FastPass options. With a FastPass it is possible to skip the long queue at an attraction. Normally the service is free, but from October 15th, visitors can also choose different paid variants. One of the options costs a whopping 150 euros per person.

With a Super FastPass, visitors can enjoy quick access for 45 euros (30 euros in low season) to three family attractions (Ratatouille: The Adventure, Peter Pan's Flight and Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast) or three thrill rides (Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster and The Twilight Zone Tower or Terror).

Those who are not satisfied with that, can also opt for an Ultimate FastPass. Skipping the queue once at all nine attractions with a FastPass queue costs 90 euros per person (60 euros in low season). The most expensive variant costs 150 euros (120 euros in the low season). This means that visitors are allowed for unlimited use of all FastPass queues in the parks in one day.

Quality Over Quantity

176 USD? That's absolutely insane. I'm sure some people will pay for it, but for now I'm waiting for the day that all Disney parks get MagicBands. :mickey:

That price sounds totally reasonable to me. Cedar Point charges $150 US on peak days. Taking that into consideration, $176 for a Disney park sounds fine.

It's expensive but the ability to skip all of the lines at a Disney park an infinite number of times should be expensive.

Cool, I'm sure they have some system designed so this doesn't interfere with normal operations and won't cause standby lines to be ridiculous. Plus it's pretty expensive so most people won't get it. I've paid $110 for Platinum Flash Pass and Fast Lane Plus, you're on vacation so budget for it. Going to Disneyland isn't exactly a daily occcurrence.

It looks like Disneyland Paris already offered some sort of unlimited Fastpass for Suites or Castle Club guests. Per the website:

Enjoy unlimited access to the FASTPASS line and skip the queue during your stay. As a Suites or Castle Club Guest, you'll board within a matter of minutes to the attractions that offer the FASTPASS service (only available at Disneyland Hotel, Disney's Hotel New York, Disney's Newport Bay Club and Disney's Sequoia Lodge).

If I were pressed for time, I'd definitely consider this paid option. It sounds like they will still offer the standard Fastpass too so this really is a win for everyone. People can still use the free system if they don't want to splurge and those who want more have the option.

I genuinely would have entertained the possibility of purchasing one of these options a few weeks ago if they had been available when we visited. We strongly considered paying the extra money for one of the higher end resorts to claim this benefit but the cost gap was too significant. The cost they're asking for the unlimited access (even during peak season) is still substantially less than the difference of what we paid for a stay at Disney's Hotel Cheyenne compared to one of the resorts on property that includes this benefit.

I'm so glad they're keeping Pirates & Princesses! I've watched the show several times on Youtube and faved a bunch of pictures on Flickr. I'm just absolutely in love with the new costumes for the princesses and the really catchy music. Hopefully they'll keep it going after next year, 'cause I'd love to go see it in person someday!
