Category Archives: Fun Outside of Disney World
Hey everyone! I know its been forever since I wrote but the good news is that I am almost done with school and I will be a much better Disney fan, LOL!
I know this is a little late but I hope every one had a great Halloween. In early October I got to attend Mickeys Not So Scary. This was the first time I have ever attended this event and it was AMAZING! I absolutely loved the theming and all the little Halloween related details that are not normally at the park.
When I returned from my Disney World trick I started to plan some cool activities for the actual day itself with some family. I saw on youtube some great ideas and decided to try them out for myself.
I created my very own Grim Grinning Ghosts Singing Busts.
I created this effect with a projector, singing heads video, (available on youtube) and styrofoam heads from Hobby Lobby. In all this made an amazing effect and will definitely do this again.

Like most Disney fans I love Hidden Mickeys! I love to spend as much time as I can on rides looking for them and I love to stumble upon them outside of the rides in the scenery.
Everybody loves a good Disney movie. You have the classics such as Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Beauty and the Beast. Then you have your action movies such as Pirates of the Caribbean and Tron. However I love all the Disney’s Pixar movies. These computer generated movies have received some of the highest rewards any movie can receive. Pixar movies are no longer strangers to the cinema, providing more and more wonderful movies throughout the years.
In these movies, Pixar hides certain things throughout. Pixar calls them “Easter Eggs”, but you might know them as a form of a Hidden Mickey. Some of the famous “Easter Eggs”, include the infamous Star Ball, the Pizza Planet truck, and an inside joke to the workers of Pixar of the symbol “A113”. Pizza Planet truck as seen in “UP”.
There are tons of other things to find inside Pixar movies beside these Easter Eggs. For example Pixar loves to hide future Pixar movie characters within their movies. For example…Buzz Lightyear in “Finding Nemo”.
Mickey Mouse in “Toy Story”. These are just a few. There are so much more to find, what will you find? Happy hunting!
In today’s episode we shall be looking at what’s going on in the Disney Studios!
For the last ten years gate no.2 at Disneyland Paris has suffered quite a poor start. On its opening day the park would have enough attractions for about half a day, you could possibly make it last a bit longer if you did things more than once.
Since then attractions like: Tower of Terror, Crush’s Coaster, the new Toystory Playland, the Cars Ride have materialised – all very good attractions.
So things are looking up, but what is still to come? Well it’s to be expected that Disney still want to keep this park growing, and there certainly is a bit more room to be squeezed into, so lets see what’s going on!
Walt Disney Studios
What we KNOW is happening:
Ratatouille Dark Ride
This ones been hinted at and suggested so many times now that if it didn’t actually happen I would be incredibly shocked! Basically its going to be a dark ride that makes use of a new trackless technology in which you go about Gasteu’s restaurant. Something else thats interesting about this one is that obviously the film is centred around a restaurant, a world class one as well. The one thing that this parc is lacking is such a restaurant, it struggles to stay open late because theres no real need for it, no restaurants open to feed people. It is therefore very possible for the ride to have a similar way as Blue Lagoon does in Pirates of the Caribbean. Thus incorporating the two into one. If you didn’t know there is a Parisian street that runs around the new Toy Story Playland which has benches with little Remy on the side. It seems clear that this street will eventually lead to the new ride and possibly the restaurant too!
What we THINK could happen:
Do you remember those plans we were talking about in part 1? They featured the new Disney Village designs and showed 2 new hotels, the new World of Disney Store and the new Train Station RER entrance. This is relevant still because the plans showed a very small part of Disney Studios, and they had a very nice surprise on them:
Yes, Soarin’ the ride first from Anaheim which was sent to Orlando. It was on the plans, and considering how reliable they’ve been so far it is therefore quite possible that it will be coming to us in Paris! There is further evidence to back this up too. The CA and FL versions are due to be re-done to a new version which takes people all around the globe and then returns them to their specific park. It is therefore possible that Paris will get this new version too and have it on a final flight to DLP.
If there’s one thing this park really lacks, its a reason to actually stay in it late. The park hours don’t allow people to stay incredibly late as it is, however they are improving. One thing that has become apparent, is that a night-time show would give it this reason to stay up past its bedtime. In Anaheim the Californian Adventure park has now had its World of Colour show reach its first birthday, its also become one of the most popular shows ever! Disneyland Paris have made plans to build a lake in the studios park, suggesting some kind of water show is in the works. Water could mean a World of Colour, or it could be Fantasmic, or perhaps even something completely unique. It would be an expensive expansion, but World of Colour isn’t exactly the most expensive attraction to run, so I can’t see it being impossible.
Thank y’all for reading the 3 part posts these few days, its incredible what DLRP have got planned for us, and what ‘could’ be in store. I’m going to embed a few videos taken from Disneyland Paris at Christmas.
