  1. @Tioz Thank you so much for supplying all that information, very very interesting! I hope that they can continue to work on DLP and make it an even greater park then it already is. Splash mountain (I love log rides!) would be a very welcome addition in my eyes! Great news about the studio additions too, I look forward to hearing more

    The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast are in the original plans. But they were supposed to be built few years later after the opening (there is actually enough room for the Little Mermaid, even if a placemaking issue would result), but there are no more information. On the other hand, Philippe Gas, Disneyland Paris CEO left some clues on futures attractions, but he may have told that for others attractions, such as Splash Mountain, that fans are more and more demanding (is it grammatically correct? Once again, sorry I'm french). The are some concept arts ( ). But, the concept is already here, there is "just" a problem with money apparently.

    For the Matterhorn, no information, sorry.

    Finally, Rattatouille is under construction, but there are other projects comming for the Studios, they are just kept secret, because the Studios will be developed until 2018

  3. I know that there has been talk over the years of having a Little Mermaid, Matterhorn, Beauty & the Beast and Splash mountain ride in Paris, are any of these true and does anyone know if we could see any of these built in future after Ratatouille has opened?

    Ratatouille dark ride construction

    -Green: intern waiting line
    -Black: fastpass and entry
    -Yellow: restaurant entry
    -White: fake building or shop
    -Red: restaurant room
    -Blue: restaurant facilities (toilets, kitchen, cold room, ...)
    -Brown: maybe a CM room, or restaurant exit

    Everything on the right: the ride itself

    Phantom Manor rehabilitation (upgrade?) is confirmed for Halloween 2013, as well as the new Space Mountain harness for half 2013.
    Pirates of the Caribbean may have it's own rehab the same year.

    I'm happy to be helpfull. I could be more precise, but my english isn't enough good for me to go technical

  8. @Tloz, thank you VERY MUCH, this is the best overview of what's going on at Disneyland Paris I have found anywhere!

    Except if notified, all information, rumors and pictures come from DisneyCentralPlaza, a french board.

    Disneyland Park
    Main Street USA
    Not much to say, except for a few improvements for Dreams, elements may be projected on Main Street Walls.

    - Space Mountain Mission 2: News harness are coming soon. There may be a retheming of some parts of the station in order to fit with the new train model. There might also be a new sound system.

    - Captain Eo and Pizza Planet Restaurant are finally closed.

    - Star Tours 2 will eventually come. When is the question. A strong rumor remains: the creation of a tiny land on ... STAR WARS! It's only a rumor, but there are many clues. Star Tours needs its upgrade. And to promote it, a new land would be awesome. Now that's there is space with the two elements mentioned above, there might be a Tatooine (sorry, I only know the french name of this planet) Cantina on the site of Pizza Planet, and an indoor jedi academy in Captain EO. Philippe Gas recently talk about ST, and he said they needed to do something with it. But there is more. On April 12, the day DLP turned 20, we had a masterclass with Tony Baxter. When we asked the question "If you have the opportunity to expand a land, wich one would it be?", he answered Discoveryland, with a little smile. Later on that day, he had a big yellow file. No one could see what was in there, but I assume he is not working on POTC's rehab, but on more important projects...


    Minor updates are planned (but not yet scheduled) for Big Thunder Mesa, Phantom Manor, and the lake, wich really needs to be cleaned up...

    Pirate of the Carribeans update is planned, mainly because of the sword-fighters animatronics, they seem not to work for more than two days straight...

    Walt Disney Studios
    First of all, we are sure that this park will be developed until 2018.

    Front Lot
    An Imagineer (unknown) mentioned a complete rethematization of Front Lot to get a result close to DCA, beacuse this park needs a whole new placemaking.

    So much rumors about this lot! The strongest one is a rethematization in Marvel (Rock'n'Roller AErosmith would become AC/DC with Iron Man, ...). An Avatar ride may eventually come, but it seems very compromised.
    More on that later...

    Toon Studio
    Well, it's no scoop, but the Ratatouille ride is under construction. There will also be a restaurant (no info on the menu yet) in a little zone called "Rue de Paris". It will look like a typical Parisian street:

    The ride shall include new 3D technology, and we're supposed to bet rat-sized... Opening 2014

    Toy Story Playland
    Toy Story Midway Mania may come. One of the most uncertain rumors...

    Recently on the radio, Philippe Gas talked about a hypothetical third theme park... Well, with a bit of logic, we would assume that might be related to Marvel, due to the fact that Disney bought the rights... But, it would mean that Backlot won't be themed on Marvel, so let's wait and see, since there has been no more information on the third park.

    Also, and this is confirmed, the "Village Nature" are going to be built. This is not a park, but more a holiday destination. Located nearby the Davy Crockett Ranch, this is going to be like the "Center Parcs", a village in the forest, with several zones: a water zone, a sports zone... Opening 2016

    Finally, a water park is also under construction, and it may be one of the biggest in Europe
    Village Nature

    Well, I don't know if all of these were relevant to your interests, but that's the information I have for the futur constructions.

    The Star Wars cantina is still a rumour, but yet we have so many clues (some are provided by Tony Baxter) that allow us to hope for it. Star Tours 2 has to come to France, as it is in the contract made with Georges Lucas. Also, Captain Eo has closed, so maybe we'll have something Star Wars related in it...

    And here are some picture of the upcoming Ratatouille:

    The previous pictures come from Marne-la-valée's town hall, where you can consult the official building licence.

    And this one is from DLRP Welcome:
