Released online last week, either officially or unofficially, are two new pictures showing what could be next years theme…Magical Moments Festival
To be honest I’m not that thrilled by this, to me a theme should be celebrating an event such as the 15th anniversary or, for example, Mickey’s birthday. It appears though that DLP feel differently and that each year needs to have a brand new theme.
So what have Disney got planned for us during this Magical Moments Festival? Well nothing official yet, rumoured to be appearing for this ‘special’ theme are;
* The new princess meet and greet which is currently being installed in the old post show are of It’s a Small World will probably form part of this Festival.
* The character express will again be rethemed…I’m not a great fan of this however my boys both love it.
* A new show will come to the central hub, possibly featuring Sorceror Mickey (as given away slightly in the above picture) however it is rumoured that this show will be a once a day only show. Personally I can see some merit to this rumour, I’d imagine that during off-peak season’s the show will only run once a day, however during the peak school holidays, weekends and the summer this show will need to be on more than once.
* Mickey Mouse’s house could be coming to the Fantasyland Festival Stage, this will be housed inside the actual stage building. This rumour, if true, adds extra weight to the Ratatouille Dark Ride rumor for the 20th Anniversary in 2012, as the other main rumour was a Fantasyland expeansion which would have included the demolition of the Stage. This is rumored to be the same version as in Hong Kong Disneyland…I’ve been unable to locate any pictures but for those who are interested here is a link to a YouTube Video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_jos9piFSs It looks from this video that it would actually be a good fit for the Stage area…and it would be a new attraction coming to Disneyland Paris that has no link to Pixar!!!
