I am hoping its the Disney Paris equivalent of D23, which is open to anyone that pays to become a member and includes some things that arent for adults only.

May also have some sort of expo or conference to announce new things for the Park.

As I said in the other thread, it sounds more like a park based event (such as Carnival or Season of the Force). Sure they may offer some sort of hard-ticket D23 style event, but I doubt we're getting the Expo.

Happy to be proven wrong come Oct. 1st though.

Anybody know what was leaked today online regarding dlrp? A few top accounts including ed92 on twitter are talking about the leak but not saying what it was.

I think they are referring to a picture of a piece of paper about Disney FanDaze, stating there will be Meet & Greets on June 1st, 2nd and 3rd 2018.
Apparently the paper was spotted in plain view in the parks somewhere.

My first reaction to the thread title was "oh no Buzz Laser Blast is leaking again?"

I suspect they were asked to remove that by DLP hence why the original image is no where to be found.

Careless on the part of the cast member in question.

So the details came out yesterday:

June 2018
Big party ticketed event in the Studios.
Characters, Ducktales parade, Max led concert, exclusive merchandise and food, LOTS of characters.

Seems to me like they've taken the ticketed events they've been doing in the last year or so and have decided to make an actual Disney event rather than Disney just being the host.

I've written a summary of what we know so far here.

Have to say, I'm not too impressed :-X! Studios is seriously lacking anyway, so not sure why something like this should be a premium ticketed event. A lot of the 'perks', I'm honestly bewildered why they should be considered 'premium' and not part of the standard package (ie, rare character meets - they have these costumes backstage, for example!).

Whilst I appreciate the park being open, 'exclusively for Fandaze ticket holders', queues will probably be LONGER than usual, as the park will probably be at capacity!

Oh well! of course, I'll be trying to get tickets, though... :P (after all, I need the undoubtedly unannounced exclusive pins!!).

Most of their ticketed events are in the Studios, presumably because they're easier to host there with the large spaces for stages and because it leaves the main park available for everyone so those buying normal tickets don't feel hard done by.

I understand why some people aren't impressed but I think it totally depends on your personal preferences - if you love character meet and greets something like this is great. An evening like this requires lots of performers so it's not like something they could do every day. If you're not into character meets then it's not really for you.

But this should be the first event of many so others will hopefully come along that will suit everyone.

I was really excited by this but it being the first wwekend in june means that it falls within a uk school holiday which of course means that to book a dianey hotel costs far more than it would coat far more than term time. Anyone got any suggestiona of how to gwt around this whilw ataying on site? And i agree about the queuez- when we did the star wars party a few years back in discoveryland the queues were massive!

Book through a different country's website - yes, you'll get stung by the exchange rate (but I figure that's going to be addressed in any new sterling prices for next year anyway), but there's no half term increase in price in the euro pricing.  That's what we did this year - we booked through the Irish site and saved about £1000 compared to the UK site (we were staying at DLH, so a high priced package anyway!).

My concern is that the event is being billed as not being a ticketted event, but that "packages" will be available to buy - if these include accommodation, we're stuffed as we already have a hotel booked (planning to buy annual passes!).

I noticed such a nice comradery between British people returning on the train from Disneyland, so this could really be an opportunity for future friendships if the super fans are as friendly as everyday guests.
