Disneyland Paris Update: Forest of Enchantment Show Relaunched, Newport Bay Club Dutch Garden Inauguration, and more


Just two days before the relaunch at Disneyland Paris of the acclaimed show "The Forest of Enchantment: A Disney musical adventure" at Frontierland Chaparral Theater, and DLP send us some official pictures of the last dress rehearsal.!





For this second season, the show benefits from a new choreography by Martin Ysebaert, under the artistic direction of Christophe Leclercq and Aurélien Berda. New scenic and visual elements have also been added for a more immersive experience, thanks in particular to the giant video screen that dresses the whole stage and allows new effects, as well as new accessories.





Musically, fans will find all the magic of the original show, with songs always sung live.



The Entertainment teams and the artists are looking forward to seeing their audience, on the stage of the Chaparral Theater, from July 1st!



Always at DLP, Disneyland Paris' Dutch Garden was officially inaugurated yesterday 28th June 2017 in presence of Mickey and Minnie, Disneyland Paris Nature and Environment team, Dutch partners and some children.



Located in front of the Disney's Newport Bay Club hotel This garden is a true symphony of colours and also an attraction in its own right, to start or end a truly unforgettable day at our Theme Parks in our 25th Anniversary year. The Dutch Garden has a size of 2,180 m2 with 115 varieties of flowering plants including 16 different varieties of dahlias, the real star of this garden, and it will prolong the delights of summer until 30 September 2017.

WDW Disney's Hollywood Studios: New Entrance Road, Possible Star Wars Hotel Location, and more


Always thanks to D&M reader Cleve North we have new pics showing where will be the new road and entry point for WDW Disney's Hollywood Studios. We've seen yesterday that they're clearing the land for parking expansion and you my already know that they're rerouting the entire entry road from World Drive, so the new road will completely avoid the expansion area now. On the picture below you can see where will be the new entry road and the new entry point to the car park.




The next picture with "A, B, C and D" is not coming from Cleve and they got the land clearing wrong - but it does also show the new road going in from a new location.



Finally, Cleeve did new indications on a picture posted by Blog Mickey showing better where could be built a Star Wars Resort, which would be located in front of the upcoming DHS Star Wars Land which will open in 2019. Please note that nothing official has been announced yet for this Star Wars hotel, so we're just betting that it might be built there.



Thanks again to Cleve to have take the time to do these pics!

Now Official: Trump Audio-Animatronic Will Speak in WDW Hall of Presidents With a New Show and Complete Theater Upgrade


The Disney Parks Blog just posted this below about what's real happening with WDW Hall of Presidents, so it's now official:

"Latest on Enhancement to The Hall of Presidents at Magic Kingdom Park:
Since the Magic Kingdom Park opened in 1971, The Hall of Presidents has brought together a one-of-a-kind look at the office of the President of the United States through film and the magic of Disney’s Audio-Animatronics technology. Despite some media reports to the contrary, President Trump will have a speaking role in The Hall of Presidents, like every president since 1993. We have been working closely with the current White House — just as we have with previous administrations — and the president’s recording session has been scheduled. The attraction will re-open in late 2017.

Whenever we refurbish one of our attractions, we take the opportunity to consider a broad range of enhancements. In this case, The Hall of Presidents is getting a new show, and a complete theater upgrade including a new sound system, lighting and high-definition projection system. The multi-screen viewing experience you may have seen in prior versions of the attraction is returning with an even wider vantage point of our country’s history."

Possible Location For The Rumored Star Wars Resort at WDW



Some months ago, concept-arts for a future Star Wars Resort were leaked, and since no official announcement came from Disney ( but it might be the case at D23 Expo in two weeks ) and no more news about it. Chances are that such a Star Wars resort would be build at WDW and D&M reader Cleve North is wondering if part of the new land to be used officially for the expansion of WDW DHS current parking lot might be used for this rumored Star Wars Hotel. Cleve used one of Blog Mickey's aerial picture from an excellent new update that you can read HERE to indicate where he thinks this Star Wars hotel might be build, right in front of the upcoming Star Wars land. He bets that it's what will happen and ...he may be right!  Note that Disney could eventually prep the entire area but use it at first for parking lot only and build the hotel years later as it's very cheap to rip up an asphalt parking lot.

For those of you who would have missed the previous post months ago showing the leaked Star Wars hotel renderings, i also repost them below. Three renderings were leaked, one showing the Star Wars hotel lobby...

...another one is showing the "guests cabins"


 ...and a third one showing another of the hotel areas.

First Concept-Arts for Universal Studios Japan Super Nintendo World Attractions !


We have to wait until 2020 for the grand opening at Universal Studios Japan of the awaited Super Nintendo World which will give Nintendo die-hards a live-action taste of the places inhabited by Mario, Link, Zelda, Kirby and more… but fans got their first glimpse of what Super Nintendo World might look like, courtesy of several concept art images released on Twitter with permission by Gary Snyder, an adviser on Western media and culture.

So, let's have a look at these would we, as the same attractions will most probably be part of Super Nintendo World when it will come after the opening in Japan to Universal Studios Hollywood and Orlando.

Let's start by the Nintendo "king", Super Mario, with the rendering below showing the Mario Kart ride, as well as two others renderings, including one showing the whole inside of the ride! Some say that the guests will wear during the ride augmented reality glasses, but so far nothing has been confirmed, so take this for now as a rumor.





The next rendering shows the Donkey Kong ride, the coaster and a playground.



Super Nintendo World will include two castles related to famous Nintendo games, and here is two digital renderings for these.



A last rendering seems to be related to a theatre attraction with a female character, i'm not a specialist about Nintendo games to be honest but it seems to be Zelda?



Finally, last week a map of Super Nintendo World was leaked but keep in mind that there might be some changes since it was done if it is an early concept map, and in fact this is the map for the Orlando version of Super Nintendo World, and by what we can see on it Super Nintendo World will be constructed between Simpsons land and E.T. Adventure, taking over most of Woody Woodpecker’s Kid’s Zone including Curious George Play Area, Woody Woodpecker’s Nuthouse Coaster, Fievel’s Playland, Animal Actors Studio and the A Day in the Park with Barney show.



We'll probably learn more about the rides soon and D&M will let you know. In the meantime, i repost below the Super Nintendo World "trailer" released for the groundbreaking event.

Shanghaî Disneyland Celebrates Its First Anniversary !



Shanghaî Disneyland celebrates its first anniversary today with more than 11 million guests since its opening!









Bob Iger who was there with Bob Chapek and Philippe Gas was pleased to participate to selfie pictures with SDL guests like he did on the park opening day!


You've seen yesterday the video interview of Bob Iger talking about the success and the future of SDL, and today i have some stunning aerial view of the park, "wallpaper size" shot recently by a drone. Here we go, and don't forget to click on each to get them in big size.






Shanghaî Disneyland next addition will be the toy Story mini-land and here are the latest pictures of its construction.


Let's have a closer look: The green building are rest rooms, on the left of it with the orange umbrellas you have the Toy Box Cafe ( both are already open ) and below the green building you have on the left Slinky Dog Spin, on the right of it Rex's Racer and, under Slinky Dog Spin, Woody's Roundup.


There is more awesome views of Shanghaî Disneyland available and you can literally "walk" in the park - by moving in it the same way than you do in Google Street view as well as others views at 360° at the link right HERE.
