It’s birthday time for Disneyland Paris, and the French theme park is celebrating with a grand reveal of what’s to come at the resort in 2023. Some of these announcements sound really exciting; let’s take a look at what the park has in store for guests this year!
A Summer Marked by Pixar
Pizzeria Bella Notte is an Italian-themed trattoria with rooms inspired by some of our favorite Disney characters. The restaurant will soon welcome a new room inspired by the Disney and Pixar film Luca. Joining the dining experience announcements, the Mexican-themed restaurant Fuente Del Oro in Disneyland Paris’s Frontierland will go through a transformation of its own, taking on Casa de Coco – Restaurante de Familia, featuring Miguel’s passion for music and love for his family. So cool, right?
A little further across the road, the Disneyland Paris Walt Disney Studios Park will see “Toon Plaza” evolve into a new immersive experience that pays tribute to an array of Pixar films. This whimsical space is the creation of Walt Disney Imagineering in conjunction with Pixar artists to develop a truly special section of the park. The area will include a new raised backdrop featuring Ember and Wade from the upcoming original feature film Disney and Pixar’s Elemental.
But the fun doesn’t stop there as we head over to Walt Disney Studios Park! We’re thrilled to reveal all-new details of the new show Together: a Pixar Musical Adventure coming to the Studio Theater this summer. This 30-minute show blends together both French and English dialogue in an original story. Spectacular scenic effects, innovative choreography, and a live eight-person orchestra will bring audience members through five scenes of fan-favorite worlds such as Toy Story, Monsters Inc. and more — each as creative as the next!Disney Parks Blog
Enhanced Iconic Attractions
The much-anticipated return of the classic attraction “it’s a small world” at Disneyland Paris is coming, and the park has shared that the “happiest cruise that ever sailed” will reopen on May 5! Special care has been taken by Walt Disney Imagineering to refresh and restore more than 300 dolls, animal figurines, and animated accessories. The iconic exterior of the original attraction at the Disneyland Resort in California by the late Imagineering legends Rolly Crump and Mary Blair also received some much-needed TLC.
Commemorating 100 Years of Disney
Disneyland Paris will soon join in the worldwide Disney100 celebration at Disney Parks! We are looking forward to what Disney is calling an “extraordinary day” that awaits on October 16, 2023, Disney’s 100th anniversary. The celebration will include one-of-a-kind festivities, exclusive character encounters, and unique Disney experiences. More details will be coming about this event soon.
