I mean, the Telegraph talked to Disney, for pete's sake. Surely they were shown something, anything with the resort's name on it. Surely they've printed a myriad of articles on Disneyland Paris since 1994.
I'm certain that's the case, since I've actually had contact with this writer through DLRP Today and he knows Disneyland Paris very well, having covered the resort's ups and downs for years in countless newspapers.
In fact, he actually sent over the full 3.5-page transcript of his talk with David Minichiello a couple of weeks ago and has allowed me to write it up as an article for the site (unfortunately a bit delayed because of last week's downtime). He doesn't go into any more detail about Pirates but it is a fascinating look at how things "happen" at DLP these days, exactly what we've been saying in other topics we don't hear/see enough of.
And even outside of this source, Pirates has been discussed for 2011. It might go some way to explain why the pirate ship is in such a state, if they're planning a full refresh of the pirates area of the land to fill in the gap before the 20th (at least I hope so). It gets my vote, especially with Pirates 4 coming next year.
