Review of The Forest of Enchantment in Disneyland Paris

When I first visited Disneyland Paris in 2002 The Tarzan Encounter was showing in The Chaparral Theater, a show I saw countless times that also spawned a love for the film that inspired it. In the winter it would be replaced by Mickey’s Winter Wonderland for the Christmas season, but...

Disneyland Paris Spring 2016 decorations – the best ever?

I talked a couple of days ago about how Spring has sprung early in Disneyland Paris, and it seems even more has arrived overnight, dispatching of winter a month before we expected and turning Disneyland Park into mass of colour and fun. Thanks to @InsideDLParis, @DisneylandBerry and @ED92live we can...

Review of Royal Christmas Wishes 2015 in Disneyland Paris

I never saw the Royal Welcome last year, which consisted of Anna and Elsa sitting in a horse drawn carriage as it cantered past guests with the Arendelle sisters waving. It wasn’t something I actively avoided, but also not something I had as a high priority, especially after meeting them...

Review of Mickey’s Magical Christmas Lights 2015 in Disneyland Paris

Nothing can really compare to being in Disneyland Paris to experience the magic in person, but as that didn’t happen for me this Christmas season (you can read why here), I’m left with watching videos and forming my opinion from those. Luckily DLPGuide.com was there, and it is those videos...

Review of Star Wars Jedi Training Academy in Disneyland Paris

This is an article that seemed to be doomed from the start, but I’m finally here, unlike the notes I took whilst watching the video, which seem lost forever. It was over a year ago in May 2014 that rumours of the Star Wars Jedi Training Academy began to surface,...

Relais Spa Chessy Val d’Europe Aparthotel (Near Disneyland Paris) – Premium Double Room Review

On my recent trip to Disneyland Paris I was booked into Hotel New York on the Saturday night for the Frozen Summer Fun press weekend, but wanted to be there first thing in the morning so as not to miss anything. This meant a night in Val d’Europe and a...

Disneyland Paris Frozen Summer Fun Season Review, Photos and Tips

Frozen Summer Fun has officially started at Disneyland Paris and after all the press left it was time for the public to experience the new attractions. At rope drop on opening day the new Frozen Fun area was very quiet and quaint, but with not a lot going on early...

Back from his Frozen Summer Fun press preview weekend, Steve goes it solo on this latest show, to give you the lowdown on all the Frozen Summer Fun festivities in Disneyland Paris. Hear about the Frozen Sing-along, Frozen Marketplace, Frozen in Dreams! and the possibility of Frozen characters returning this...

Disneyland Paris Frozen Summer Fun Review: Frozen Marketplace

The area in Frontierland that used to house Woody’s Roundup and at Christmas is home to Santa’s Village, is for the summer season rethemed as the Frozen marketplace, straight out of Arendelle. Before you get to the Marketplace there is a big sign for Frozen Fun – not Frozen Summer...

Disneyland Paris Star Wars Jedi Training Academy Press Preview

The Star Wars Jedi Academy is due to open in Disneyland Paris on July 11th, but this past Sunday there were previews for the press. The final attraction will be located in Videopolis, but this preview took place in the Star Tours after show area. I turned up early for...

Disneyland Paris Frozen Summer Fun Review: Frozen Sing-along Show

Like many of you, I was really disappointed when both Tarzan and Mickey’s Winter Wonderland disappeared from The Chaparral Theater, especially after the Fantasy Festival Stage changed to Meet Mickey Mouse and with The Lion King already long gone from Videopolis. Times have been hard for fans of stage shows...

Review of Swing into Spring 2015 in Disneyland Paris

I’ve been off the Disneyland Paris radar for 6 weeks, so I didn’t know anything about the Swing into Spring celebrations in Disneyland Paris before writing this article, and searching for the associated videos for each part. So far removed from the Disneyland Paris community have I been, that I...
