Does anyone know when the Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain overlay will finish?

There isn't currently any date but it's thought it'll be around for a while.

They're going to be adding scenes from Ep.8 to Star Tours so I imagine they'll keep it around for that. Wouldn't surprise me if they don't start removing it until this time next year.

So it's officially booked! 5th-8th January! Very excited as it will have been 15 years since my last visit, so I'm looking for any advice on things to do and see, I'm sure plenty has changed since :D

Awesome! (I'm a little jealous :P)

While Disneyland Park itself hasn't had many new rides - the only ones being Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast, an update to Star Tours which is now Star Tours: The Adventure Continues, and the Space Mountain Star Wars HyperSpace Mountain overlay - there are still a lot of new shows like the two new shows on the Royal Castle Stage just next to the castle, both of which have their last performance on the 7th of January 2018. There is also the new 25th anniversary parade, Disney Stars on Parade performed daily as well as Disney Illuminations fireworks, projections and water display.

In Walt Disney Studios, there's are probably quite a few new attractions since your last visit. The ones worth noting are The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Crush's Coaster and Ratatouille: The Adventure. Other new attractions include those in the Toy Story Playland and Cars Quatre Roues Rallye. There is also the show, Mickey and the Magician in the Animagique Theatre, which also ends on the 7th of Jan 2018.

There is also the Christmas event which also concludes on the 7th of Jan 2018, which includes the Christmas parade which is performed daily  in Disneyland Park and also there is the Frozen Sing-a-long (if your in to that sort of thing :)) performed in the Chaparrel Theatre in Frontierland and also Mickey's Christmas Big Band performed on the Videopolis stage (Cafe Hyperion, Discoveryland). On the Royal Castle Stage there is also a new show, A Merry Stichmas! In Walt Disney Studios there is also new shows in the Production Courtyard area called Sing Me a Merry Christmas performed several times daily and a nighttime projection show called Goofy's Incredible Christmas.

I hope this post gives a little insight on what new things you can expect whithout too many spoilers! Each park should have up to date brouchers when you arrive detailing all show times, rides and park maps.


Thank you Robert, that's huge help! Certainly got me excited, although I think I'll pass of the frozen sing along :P

Forbes:
Euro Disney Planning Blockbuster New Attraction For 2024

Interesting. I'm not too sure on how credible this claim is, but certainly interesting to hear. The article seems to suggest that a Tower of Terror retheme to Guardians of the Galaxy is a possibility, but given the facade renovation work due to take place, that change is more likely to happen sooner than 2024 if it's happening at all, I would have thought.

Here's a link to the full article: https://www.forbes.com/sites/csylt/2017/11/22/euro-disney-planning-blockbuster-new-attraction-for-2024/amp/

A six year wait just for a retheme as THE major project for the park would be an incredibly bleak prospect for a park that needs more rides. You'd also have to wonder how much of a draw it would be 4-5 years after GotG Vol.3 too.

The rumours I've seen floating around seem to fit better (and are a more exciting prospect): A Captain America bike coaster using the Tron tech.

I hadn't heard of that rumour. I know that at one point, EuroDisney discussed having a major Marvel Land in WDS, but never head of any ride specifics for it, and I think most people just assumed that Rock 'n' Rollercoaster would get a retheme, along with most other attractions in the backlot.
While the Forbes article does speculate a Guardians of the Galaxy ride experience to replace Tower of Terror, there is nothing really to suggest it is happening as that project really. Considering the renovation works that have been announced for the ride, I'd assume a retheme to the Tower of Terror will happen sooner than 2024 if they decide to retheme it at all.

Hi all. So I'm going to be going to Disneyland Paris on a school trip February 26th-27th, will be the days we spend in the parks. On the 26th we get a half day at Walt Disney Studios, and on the 27th we get a full day at Disneyland Park. I was just wondering, will it be busy when I'm going and what are the best rides to go on, incase there are long queue times, forcing myself to have to choose the best rides. Thanks :D (By the way, we'll be staying in one of the Disney hotels, if that makes a difference.

Hi jwewan! 

I can't really be certain about the crowds, but a little basic logic tells me that if it's colder, then there should be lesser people than there would perhaps be in the summer months, however, this is just me having a bit of a guess.

For your day at the Walt Disney Studios Park, some of the better attractions include Twighlight Zone Tower of Terror, Crush's Coaster and Ratatouille: The Adventure. Some of the other attractions worth taking note of are Rock and Rollercoaster, all the Toy Story Playland attractions and Mickey and the Magician live show in the Animagique Theatre. It's worth nothing that as this is such a small park, lines for even the more tame attractions can get unbelievably long, such as Crush's Coaster. Also, during your visit, Season of the Force will be happening at this park, which depending on how late you stay, concludes each night with a nighttime projection show on the Tower of Terror called "Star Wars: A Galactic Celebration". As well as this, the Season of the Force even also included other limited time entertainment which you should be able to find out more info on the website or on a brochure in park. 

At Disneyland Park, the main attractions include Hyperspace Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, Indiana Jones et le Tempil du Peril and "it's a small world". A tip for getting some extra rides on these more popular attractions would be to sacrifice the time when most people would be viewing the parade as lines for these ride should be much shorted then. During your trip, there are also a number of rides under renovation including Phantom Manor and a number of the Fantasyland rides. Here is a link to see all scheduled renovations at Disneyland Paris: http://holidays.disneylandparis.co.uk/eep.html

And finally about you staying onsite, in the mornings there is Extra Magic Time, which you can find out more on this link: http://www.disneylandparis.co.uk/faq/park-hours-schedules/extra-magic-hours/. The dates that you are visiting the resort, Extra Magic Time runs from 8:30am to 9:30am in both parks.

I hope this post helps a little so that you can experience as much as you can at the resort. Each park will have an up to date brochure available at the park entrance with the all most current info on show and parade times at the parks.
