Dedicated to Disneyland Paris Podcast (travel)

The Disneyland Paris 25th Anniversary ends on September 9th 2018, so just what has the last 18 months offered us and what do we, and all of you think of the way Disneyland Paris 25 years?


At last Steve and Mark are back together on the podcast, and with a whole load of Disneyland Paris news and rumours to discuss. The brand new Disneyland Paris Halloween Festival 2018 press release came out just days before we recorded, for once, with news of the Mickey 90 Mouse Party and lots more. Soon after Halloween we have Christmas, and then in 2019 there's Pirates and Princesses returning and the newly named Star Wars Legends of the Force. Plus a Jungle Book festival for summer 2019? All this and so much more!


It's been a while since this guy was on an episode of the podcast, but he's back to chat all things Disneyland Paris. We had a lot to talk about too, what with the Disneyland Paris Annual Pass Marvel Soiree, Disney Village overhaul, Phantom Manor, the potential for Iron Man Spinner and X-Files Alien Encounter attractions. Oh, and Bart Simpson?


A brand new season in Disneyland Paris and the arrival of Marvel in force leads us to Marvel Summer of Super Heroes, and both I and Geoff from DLP Town Square were there for the launch weekend. So get comfortable and listen to our full review of the season, with spoilers - you have been warned! We chat Marvel Super Heroes United, Stark Expo presents: Energy for Tomorrow!, Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance-Off, all the food, characters and those huge Marvel statues! There's also some startling news about Phantom Manor, International Yoga Day, Disney Loves Jazz and more!


This past weekend was the very first, as the name suggests, Disney FanDaze Inaugural Party in Disneyland Paris. Packed full of super rare characters, special shows, merchandise and much much more. I watched the 6.5 hour live stream but Mark was actually there, so it’s a review from two very different viewpoints.


A massive night for Disneyland Paris, it's fans and guests as the InsidEars Disneyland Paris Social Club was launched over in Disneyland Paris with a convention centre full of invited guests and a whole lot of news to share with everyone. New shows, new attraction updates, new hotel themes, new food, new cavalcades and so much more. It's a whirlwind discussion of everything announced and what it means for Disneyland Paris, and us fans.


Now Mark is back from Disneyland Paris he was present to be quizzed by Steve about the brand new Pirates and Princesses Festival and the Tower of Terror Annual Pass event. Speaking of which there's a Marvel Annual Pass event just been announced and FanDaze ticket only prices that have sent the online community into a tailspin, just for a change. There is buckets of merchandise news and some feedback from you lovely listeners.


The biggest news possibly since Disneyland Paris opened hit this week, as Disney announced a €2 Billion expansion plan for the Walt Disney Studios Park. A Marvel Land, Star Wars Land, Frozen Land and a Lake! In this episode we discuss all of that, as we study the concept art and come up with lots of theories as to what might be, including all your wonderful and enthusiastic feedback. There’s also some FanDaze and Pirates & Princesses music news to kick things off, with actual music!


I'm not sure we have ever discussed a more ridiculous sounding Disneyland Paris rumour than the Lake Show lunacy that main evented this 114th episode. Add in the new Art of Marvel Hotel room visuals, alarming Marvel Summer of Heroes character rumours, Tower of Terror chat, Extra Magic Time news, Cafe Mickey changes and it's fair to say this was an absolutely HUGE episode, full of Disneyland Paris news, rumours and your input.


I'm not sure there has ever been an episode with more official news from Disneyland Paris since this podcast started. Starting with the major announcement at the D23 Expo in Japan from the Walt Disney Company of a new Marvel attraction coming to Walt Disney Park, moving on to Bob Iger stating more popular IPs are on the way to Disneyland Paris, and there were some Annual Pass changes too. Of course what this meant was masses of feedback from all of you, which is the way we like it.

We are back, and when I say we, it's me Steve and Mark, together on the podcast again!
