After the D23 expo back in August and a few announcements direct from the parks itself since, it seems that Disneyland Paris has cemented even more plans for its future.
More news on Marvel
We’ve known a Marvel expansion is happening at Disneyland Paris for some time now, especially with the new Art of Marvel hotel due to open its doors next year. But now we finally have more details of what the actual land will involve.
Avengers Campus will take over the Walt Disney Studios Park, hopefully in 2021 – but we all know Disneyland Paris has trouble sticking to its deadlines! The land will include a new Spider-Man attraction, which should open with the first phase of the park, and will give riders “superpowers” so that they can sling webs alongside Peter Parker himself. It’s an immersive simulation experience, and we’ll get a sneak peek of the ride as it opens with the land next year in Disneyland California.
Let it go…
We’ve heard rumours that the next stages of Disneyland Paris’ expansion will involve a Frozen land, but much before that we’ll see a Frozen Celebration take place in the park from January 2020.
This latest season – running from 11th January to 3rd May 2020 – will include a new daily show based on Frozen 2 (coming out in November 2019), a new parade float, themed food, drink and merchandise, as well as a new Frozen nighttime show – but this is only taking place on 27th, 29th and 31st January.
To coincide with the film’s sequel, a new attraction will open up a little ahead of the new season to get guests in the festive mood from 17th November. Art of Frozen – or Frozen: A Musical Invitation – has replaced the Art of Animation in the Walt Disney Studios Park. Visitors will step into this interactive attraction to meet characters from the movie and play along with them across its various stages.
Run with the princesses
You might be aware of the runDisney events – races which are held within Disney parks across the world – and Disneyland Paris has announced a brand new one for 2020.
Between 8th to 10th May, guests of all ages can sign up for the Princess Run and take part in races of various lengths and stamina, all taking place throughout the parks. You’ll also get the chance to meet some Disney characters along the way and, we’re guessing from the name of this one, plenty of princesses!
‘Tis the season
Disneyland Paris have also confirmed a huge run of seasons to take place over this coming calendar year. Aside from the usual suspects – Disney’s Enchanted Christmas and New Year’s Eve Party – and the new Frozen Celebration, the park will host Electroland in summer next year and has confirmed that Legends of the Force: A Star Wars Celebration (11th January – 15th March 2020) and the Lion King & Jungle Festival (summer 2020) will both return.
