Disneyland Paris 20th Anniversary Update!

Gosh SO MUCH has happened since my last update

First up - the Disneyland Paris 20th Anniversay website is now live! This largely flash based website is very impressive indeed! Featuring information on Disney Dreams, Disney Magic on Parade, Meet Mickey Mouse and Extended Opening Hours, along with a page featuring links to the Disneyland Paris YouTube Channel and Facebook page. Check it out - there's some amazing flash animation!

Next ... something really cute has made it's way onto Central Plaza ... the Disney Dreams Control Booth! You can see lots of photo from the wonderful Photos Magiques!

Doesn't it look great?! It fit's in with the rest of Main Street perfectly! :)

Next up, more news on the fountains! There's a whole bunch of new photos to be found over at Disney Gazette! It looks like even more fountain pieces have been added over the last couple of weeks!

Next is probably the most exciting news I've come across in the last week ... a video from the Annual Shareholders Meeting of the new parade song AND the characters new sorcerer costumes!
Check it out below!

Isn't this Magical!?! I'm LOVING seeing Flora, Fauna, Merryweather, The Blue Fairy, Cinderella's Fairy Godmother AND Merlin all together! It gives me the Disney giggles! And the Sorcerer costumes for Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Chip, Dale and Goofy are awesome! Poor Pluto could have done with a bit more of a costume ... but I suppose it's not usual to see him dressed in much anyway! :P

DLRPToday also reported some news that came from live tweets at the meeting - that there will be five key 'acts' in the Disney Dreams show! The opening act is said to be called "The Magic of the Second Star" - sure to include the Second Star to the right igniting at the top of Sleeping Beauty Castle! The second act "The Shadow at Play" is rumoured to have Peter chasing his shadow through different Disney classics, meeting some familiar faces along the way! The third act is called "Free to Dream" - I can only imagine what goose-bump inducing scenes this section will play out!

The fourth act "Shadow Battle", may be a battle of sorts between Peter and his shadow ... or could this be where some Villains turn up for a showdown!? If so, this section may include some of those talked about fire effects! The final act "Dreams Can Take Us Anywhere" may include an epic firework filled finale! Or at least I hope it does! DLRPToday also reported that Ratatouille, The Hunchback of Notre Dame and The Jungle Book have all been confirmed as part of the show! I can't wait to see how they incorporate Ratatouille and The Hunchback of Notre Dame - both were set in Paris after all! :D

Also, the wonderful InsideDLParis has been posting photos a plenty of some new gold bunting appearing all over Main Street! Here's a couple of snaps!

I'm loving it! It's simple and tasteful - you can see it but it's not in your face like some past Main Street decorations! :P Please be sure to check out InsideDLParis for loads more awesome photos from inside Disneyland Paris!

Finally, this video has appeared on the Disneyland Paris YouTube Channel! "A generation full of emotions: relive the Disneyland Paris saga in 4 minutes only, and more than 1000 shots. 20 years of dreams and magic in (many) pictures!" How cool is this!?

It really lets you see at a glance just how much Disneyland Paris has accomplished in 20 years! :) I CAN'T WAIT for these celebrations, I really can't!! :D
