Hi All,

Found this marketing image in the Christmas thread over on DCP which I thought you'd enjoy!.

I'm wondering the image provides an insight into new decorations for Main Street, or whether you can read just a little too much from the image.   For example, take a look at the garlands stretching across Main Street.

Original image appears to have been provided by the DLRP Express blog.


That is highly unusual! It looks like something Tokyo Disneyland might put out. So traditional. One would expect Princess Tiana as the Ice Queen in some glittery purple wonderland, or something in that vein.

Those garlands are a bit like the ones you'd find hanging over any European high street, but I'd take them over those chandeliers, personally. Although it's probably just the artist's imagination. (Wouldn't they interfere with the Once Upon a Dream Parade in any case?)

On a side note, it's funny how they can never get the castle's perspective quite right. Here it looks like it's being swallowed by the earth.

Festival Disney

I thought that there was a visual here that actually had the layout of the park correct... for about 2 seconds...

They have what kinda looks like the entrance to WDS on the left of Town Square, then Fantasyland behind that...

Oribitron in Frontierland

Disneyland Hotel the far side of Frontierland

And Town Square that looks more like a plaza at the bottom of a sky skraper with... a oversized towering xmas tree :lol:

At least they haven't flipped the castle :D

On another note, If they actually did the two small trees either side of the start of main street and the garlands, it would look sooo nice! :P
Past trips:
Nov 1997 - SF - 3 days
May 2003 - WDW
Aug 2009 - Off site - 4 days
Jul 2010 -  Disneyland Park - 1 day
Dec 2010, Jul 2011  - Ibis Val d'Europe - 6 days, 4 days
Apr 2012 - HNY - 4 days
Dec 2013  - NPBC - 4 days
Jul 2013 - SL - 5 day


As stated above: the whole picture is wrong, although I love the design. Main Street is not the one we see at the park. Look at City Hall, very strange. Indeed Town Square is much different then the real park. I never liked those garlands (the ones in the Studios Park are SO ugly), so I hope we still have the very cool blue Princess poles.
In the picture we have a sailing ship in the Rivers of the Far West? Well, although it's complete wrong if you compare this to the blueprint of the actual park, it looks very nice and Christmassy. But for god sake, loose Buzz! The should be focussing on the classic characters again. Why not Tinkerbell? It would look so much better in my opinion. Overall very nice!

As Tuvok said: Loose Buzz!
Fair enough if we have a few other NG characters, but here we have all the Classic Characters, Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Pluto, etc etc... and BUZZ?! Whhaat? He looks so out of place here.

Funny wee Mickey-shaped grassed area in Town Square...


What's also slightly unclear is why Buzz Lightyear is spreading pixie dust.

I don't mind the geographical inaccuracy... Its only purpose is to be atmospheric, after all.


still no press relaese?


Finally DLP has issued the Christmas Season Press Release!.

This is a copy, translate and paste job using Google, so may not be word perfect.

Have a look at viewtopic.php?f=1&t=9658



wow! i'm so so so so excited :D it sounds amazing. Let me put my tree up now :D put me in the mood :D


When I read that "Rapunzel" come to Disneyland Paris this Christmas, I had a great Idea for the Showtime Spectacular.

When the last show of the day comes to an end with Tiana and her prince with their musical number, they could bring Rapunzel on the stage! With her magical hair and a little bit of pixie dust she could illuminate the castle. Even more better, she could stay on the balcony from the castle, let her hair down and with thinkerbell they could illuminate the castle.

It is so easy to bring a little more magic into this and this wouldn`t coast a lot of money I guess. And the appereance of Rapunzel on the Showtime Spectacular should be only during the christmas time every evening on the last show, so that it makes more special :)

So, what do you tink? :D
