Disneyland Paris: Big plans for Walt Disney Studios Park

So, out of the blue, The Walt Disney Company announced on February 27th 2018, that they are going to invest 2 BILLION euro's into Disneyland Paris' 2nd park: The Walt Disney Studios Park.

DLP fans were waiting for this for a LONG time now, but with the parks not making enough money since openingday and the very strict rules of the French laws and who knows what else ..... the park got a bit neglected somehow. Untill june 2017! 
That's when The Walt Disney Company officially took over Disneyland Paris.

When we heard the news, people had lots of different opinions. Some were disappointed they had to sell their shares to TWDC, some were angry or had mixed feelings, but a lot of them were excited. Amongst them: Me! 
I've seen countless WDW and Disneyland Anaheim vlogs. I know what TWDC is capable of! This 'take over' could only be a good thing. I just knew they had a lot for us in store and just yesterday, they proved me right. 

Although I'm not the biggest Marvel fan and I am sick and tired of seeing/hearing all things Frozen since it came out(thanks my lovely daughter :p)....I'm still excited because the plans and especially the concept art show that there is also a lot of potential for things they did not announce......yet. ;-)

As you can see on the concept art, when you enter the park and go through Studio 1(no idea if it'll change name by then), you'll come out facing the Tower of Terror on your left and Art of Disney Animation to the right. When you go left, you'll enter the area that will be completely dedicated to Marvel. Up until now, there isn't much info about the new areas yet but we do now Rock 'n' Roller coaster will be rethemed to an Iron Man coaster.

Back to where you enter after Studio 1: right in front of you, in between ToT and Art of Animation, there will be a large avenue with a giant lake at the end. To the left of the lake you will find the Star Wars area and across the lake you'll see the kingdom of Arendelle. 

These will be the 3 big new areas in Walt Disney Studios Park. But there is more to see. 
As you look closely into Toy Story Playland, you'll see the Aliens swirling Saucer attraction, just as in WDW. It'll be somewhere in between the Toy Soldiers parachute drop and RC Racer. I don't know about you, but I'm pretty excited about this one! Yay aliens! :)

And like I said, eventhough they didn't announce any of the following yet, but...

Look closely at that Frozen area: You see that big mountain in the back? Davey from Disney goofballs saw something 'Expedition Everest'-ish in that and I couldn't agree more! I can totally see a likewise ride but instead of a yeti.....enter Marshmallow! :) It would totally make sense! 
I also see a lot of potential for a new parade or even a nighttime parade like Paint the Night for example. Probably including Marvel and Star Wars too. That large Avenue is perfect for it!
And what about that lake. Do you think what I think? Exactly: Bring on Fantasmic or World of Colour.....or just something new and original to go on there every night.

I can see a big empty space on the right side of the lake, so plenty more opportunities there too!

So, are you excited yet? I sure am. The first parts should open in 2021, so I'm guessing construction walls will turn up soon and work will start. 

What are your thoughts? What ride or attraction would you like to see? Maybe some meet and greets? And what about Disneyland Park itself? Would you like to see some new rides over there or maybe a new land or rethemed land? Personally I would love to see something similar to Cars land come to the Studios and New Fantasyland to Disneyland. 
Only time will tell if our wishes will come the meantime: keep on dreaming and believing!

So about last year....

I can not believe it's already 2018. I can not believe I'll be turning 35 this year. I can not believe how quick 2017 went by. I can not believe what a year it has been....

But I do believe we can make 2018 better! or at least try to. 
The main thing is to stay as positive as possible! Easier said then done, but if at first you don't succeed.... you know what to do ;-) If there is one thing last year taught me, it's to stay positive!

2017 was a pretty crappy year for me personally, but so was 2016. And many years before that. I struggled for over 10 years with symptoms, medical issues, things I had no answer for. Even doctors couldn't figure it out. I was getting pretty depressed, I didn't have any joy in my life anymore. I only had pain and lots of it. And nobody knew where it came from. Bloodtests were always 'okay', despite the fact that there were always inflammatory values in my blood, doctors seem to find this 'normal' .... but I didn't s…

Disneyland Parijs 19-22 april 2016: Shoplog!

Je kan natuurlijk niet naar Disneyland gaan zonder iets te kopen. Al wil ik wel even benadrukken dat wij voor dit reisje meer dan een jaar ruim gespaard hebben. Alle 'rosse' centjes verdwenen meteen in de spaarpot en ook verjaardagscentjes, kermiscentjes, nieuwjaarscentjes, 'zomaar'centjes, .... werden zorgvuldig aan de kant gezet om er een supercalifragilisticexpialidocious vakantie van te maken! :)

Ook Sterre had haar eigen centjes die ze flink bij mekaar gespaard had(met natuurlijk ook wat sponsoring van mama en papa erbij). Ze heeft dus ook zelf een aantal dingetjes mogen kopen. Ik zal met haar aankopen beginnen:

Verder kocht ze ook nog een pop (zoiets als een barbiepop) van Merida en van Elsa. Die laatste kan zingen en geeft ook nog licht. Ze koos ook nog 2 speelsetjes van Anna en van Elsa maar die staan allemaal niet op de foto omdat alles al door mekaar ligt en de helft van de popjes geen kleren meer aanheeft :p 

Dan ga ik nu over tot de orde van de dag: Onze, ja o…
