Hey everybody!

This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at the Disneyland Paris Resort, including Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney Studios Park, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of these park as well as past updates, see TPR's Disneyland Paris Park Index Page and TPR's Walt Disney Studios Park Index Page.

I got an email today from Disneyland Paris with a link to some Information about Space Mountain Mission 2: ... nteuro.htm

The funniest thing was this part:
Crew members on the maiden flight include Jean Reno, David Copperfield and Gérard Depardieu!

Wow, that's one heck of a maiden flight! I wonder who they'll get when Mission 2 opens up April 9th!

I just stumbled across the following concept art from Toon Studios in a presentation Jay Rasulo gave a week ago in the USA on the Walt Disney Investor Conference.

The rather atmospheric drawing is only a snapshot of how this area might look like under ideal conditions, but it shows some neat details.

Wow! That is one awesome trailer! Hopefully, Disneyland can get something nice and exciting like that, even if it's just a random visualization that shows nothing from the actual ride. Gets me exciting just watching it. :)

On the other hand, maybe they'll just use the same trailer and change the words!

Date for the (re)openning has change.



Reasons for this change is ....... Prince Charles :shock: :lol:
This is not a joke. Mariage of Prince Charles and ..(I don't now her name) his future wife will be April 9th.

They don't want medias "forget" this openning because of the mariage .... 8) =>Just a small part in newspapers and TV ...
