Does the announcement say anything about how long the 25th Anniversary celebrations will go on for? We really really want to go but know that September is the earliest we could get there next year. Will this go on until the end of 2017 at least?

Does anyone also know if they scrap all the seasons once this starts or do they run the seasonal stuff alongside the 25th Anniversary?

Am I the only who feels they cheaped out by making the Star Wars attractions (which are just a refurb and an overlay) as part of the celebations?

Why not include Star Tours and Hyperspace Mountain? To me they're more than just a new lick of paint. And in the end all the refurbishments that are in progress are part of making the park shine for the celebration.

They usually run the celebration for a full year so theoretically March 2018. However for the 20ththey extended it even further so it lasted 2 years.
I am almost certain the seasons will continue through the 25th. Especially Halloween and Christmas.

Sure, but they were being added regardless. What would have impressed me more was an annoucement of the Cantia replacing the Pizza Planet restaurant.

I am, big time. But this is not exclusive to DLP, it seems to be the way to go with Disney Parks lately.

I rode Star Tours 2 in California and I hated it. I don't normally suffer from motion sickness but this ride made me feel weak and ill for hours after riding it.

HyperSpace Mountain.... it'll just use the same projections and sound than the one in California. I reckon it will be more impressive given that DLP's Mountain has larger projection screens- but a let down nonetheless.

I was really hoping for Soarin' over the Horizon to be added to Adventureland (my first wish has always been Indiana Jones Adventure, but that's way over budget). I was hoping for Paint The Night as well (it was a matter of just cloning the existing HK and California parades).

Sadly DLP will go on a rough patch for years to come- the terrorism threat has REALLY taken a toll on tourism to France, and its not going away anytime soon :(.

Slimy yet satisfying

Nothing "new" then, just current things changed / rethemed.

I guess the hype of calling it a surprise announcement was for people that don't follow the rumours of DLP.

Quite a few good points made in this thread. I wonder how many Disney people cringe at what they get told to implement. "We've got to have something from this film", "OK, lets nail it to that ride". "We've got to feature these characters", "Ok, we can put them there, next to the existing ones". I'm surprised this is happening, I thought that now TWDC have effectively taken control of the park, they would have been a bit more "Disney" about refurbing / developing the parks.

I remember being told on a tour of the park that an amusement park is a load of attractions, whilst a theme park uses the attractions to tell a story. DLP is changing from a theme park into an amusement park.

Coming up - ?

I hope Disney Illuminations is a night-time parade and not just fireworks.

-Joyeux Anniversaire Disneyland Paris will be a cavalcade, separate from the main parade

Mickey's DLP Birthday not a show.
