Dreams of Disneyland Paris


Welcome to those of you joining me from The Magical Mouse Pad and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 4th stop on our Magical Blogorail.

If I close my eyes and wish upon a star I can see myself roaming the streets of Paris. In this dream I am eating a croissant and exploring the Louvre. Of course my dream does not end there. My subconscious always plans a stop at Disneyland Paris Resort!

Today the fabulous bloggers of Magical Blogorail Black are discussing what attraction, parade or show we would like to see at the US-based Disney parks. However, I am going to change it up a bit.

In April of 2008 while I was working in the Disney Public Relations office several of my colleagues attended a special event at Disneyland Paris. It was a grand event with live actors and amazing protection technology. What was it? It was the opening ceremony for the Tower of Terror.

Anyone who loyally reads this blog knows how I feel about the Tower of Terror. At Disney's Hollywood Studios the tower is a looming presence. It is a perfectly themed attraction that is all about the infamous Disney show - from the eerie walk down Sunset Boulevard to the attraction exit.

So when Disneyland Paris celebrated the opening of their version of this attraction, it was only fitting that they put on a grand show of their own. Before the technology of The Magic, The Memories and You! there was this:



I obviously know that I cannot "bring the Grand Opening of the Tower of Terror to US based parks." However what I do know is that I'd like to see more of these shows, events and spectaculars. It helps to build the excitement of an attraction and welcome it to the place that we love oh so much. Most of all, it adds to the grand show that is the Disney Parks.

Thank you for joining me today. Your next stop on the Magical Blogorail Loop is My Dreams of Disney.

Oh! I love the angle you took on this topic Rosanne! It's perfect! This opening was unbelievable ... they should make it a nightly show for sure! Or even during the Halloween season! :D x

I would love to see something like this coming to the parks!  They could do so much with Tower of Terror and shows!
