    In this very special episode of our Disneyland Paris podcast we are joined by Peter Bell, who at one time worked as a Cast Member in Disneyland Paris. Hear about how he got interested in Disneyland Paris, what attractions he worked on, whether he got park envy and lots of stories about his time there. Peter is a walking talking encyclopaedia of Disneyland Paris, so you’ll hear lots about the history of the resort, things that went wrong and a tale about possibly the daftest family to ever visit!

    This episode was always going to feature a lot about Ratatouille, but not before Captain EO, LEGO Store, Halloween, Christmas and Buzz Lightyear’s Pizza Planet in Disneyland Paris were discussed. Things started to get a little interesting as visitors from the future came on with some very exciting breaking news about the very Ratatouille ride Steve & mark has just been talking about!

    We weren't due to record another episode of the podcast until next week, but with the impromptu What's New What's next event happening in Disneyland Paris, and so much news coming out of that, we absolutely had to talk about it while it was fresh on everyone's minds. We talk about the huge refurbishments planned, to cover all the hotels and areas all over Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios. We talk about all the new merchandise and introduce the amazing Disney Art on Demand. There's also news of a certain Disneyland Paris show coming back...

    Thank you so much, Steve! We are traveling to DLP for the first time in just a few weeks. (Can't believe we just booked it last minute after all these years but got a great deal on airfare). Though we live just down the street from WDW I'm over the moon to be visiting a new park for the first time. Your podcast (and youtube and twitter) are so helpful! I hope you'll DM me if you ever need a tour guide for our little parks! ;)

    Thanks for all you do!!!

    Thanks for those kind words - I'll be sure to call upon your services when I'm on your side of the pond :D

    This week the Halloween season launched in Disneyland Paris with a combination of ghosts, pumpkins and a harvest inspired theme. There's lot to discuss, as Steve and Mark bring two schools of thought about this year's festivities, which include the brand new Mickey's Halloween Celebration cavalcade parade. Buzz Lightyear's Laser Blast is the Attraction of the Week, which means all of you get to have your say, as you do when we read out your iTunes reviews too.

    As well as the usual news of escaped Buffalo (!), new Disney Paris website, Halloween in Disney Village and Tarzan, Steve and Mark are joined by Allison and Mel who have just come back from Disneyland Paris. They give us a first-hand report on all the new Halloween decorations and Disney’s Halloween Celebration cavalcade. We learn about the dancing and also the trail of destruction left in Allison’s wake. The Disneyland Paris Attraction of the Week is CineMagique, and you left us feedback by the bucket load!

    Just one week ago Steve was in Disneyland Paris for the launch of the Disney’s Enchanted Christmas 2013. Hear all about Disney Dreams! of Christmas and the new and improved tree lighting ceremony, now called Magical Christmas Wishes. Find out what’s been added to the Christmas Cavalcade and the new Frozen/Tangled float in Disney Magic on Parade. Steve has a Light’Ears epiphany and tests the Hotel New York baths! All this and much more, and all with a festive cheer.

    The bedroom renovations of the Newport Bay Club were all we had for news this week, so we opened it up to all of you, and you gave us your opinions of the Christmas celebrations in Disneyland Paris this year. We also gave you the opportunity to Ask Us Anything, and as always we got a wide variety of interesting questions. Listen as we discuss the good and bad of Disneyland Paris, the best restaurants, Armageddon, a 3rd park and much more.

    In this episode Steve and Mark are joined by Geoff from DLP Town Square as they talk about all the Disneyland Paris of the last two weeks. What has happened to the LEGO Store? When will we find out about the rumoured Spring Festival? When will Ratatouille open? What’s with the rope controlled queues for character meets and what on earth were Zayn from One Direction and Perrie from Little Mix doing in Disneyland Paris? All this and much much more!

    Apologies for the long wait between episodes, but episode 35 will forever be known as the lost episode! We also appear to have one voice in each ear, but Mark is getting the blame for that – it’s his recording this time! We are back, and we have a big review of Swing into Spring in Disneyland Paris, as Mark has just come back from experiencing the newest seasonal celebrations. There’s also a competition to win a very special limited edition pin, so make sure you listen to the very end, and no skipping, we will know!

    The brand new official Disneyland Paris press release about Ratatouille: The Adventure kicks things off, as we discuss what was said, or not, and then cover Bistrot Chez Remy and what food is on offer. There are almost certain rumours about a new Star Wars feature coming to Disneyland Paris after Watchdog sensationally accuses Disneyland Paris of all sorts. Then the temperature rises for a very heated discussion about adding characters to classic Disneyland Paris rides. There’s a whole stack of feedback from all of you in this very packed and emotional episode!

    We are less than a week away from the special press preview weekend for Ratatouille: The Adventure in Disneyland Paris. Mark will be attending and we chat about all the stuff to look forward to, and the recent trailers that have been released, official and fan made. Then it’s on to an extra long question of the week as we discuss all your suggestions as to what you’d like to see added to Disneyland Paris next! Plus there’s big button badge news!
    We will be back in just 1 week, for Mark’s big review of the Ratatouille ride and restaurant!

    Just back from Disneyland Paris, Mark tells us all about the new Ratatouille: The Attraction, Bistrot Chez Rémy & La Place de Rémy which was opened up for the press and a special group of invited fans. Don’t worry if you are avoiding spoilers as in this episode gives an in depth analysis of the ride, without actually giving much away – clever stuff! If you don’t care about spoilers, he also wrote a big article about the new additions to Walt Disney Studios here.

    After what seems like a very long summer break, we are back, and with an episode so packed with news items we had to leave some out! Halloween, Christmas, Dreams!, Anna, Elsa, Merida, Philippe Gas, Tom Wolber, Crush’s Coaster Game and Promenades are just some of the topics we covered in this fast paced episode of Disneyland Paris news and rumours.

    Remember to email your likes, dislikes and changes & additions you’d like to see in Disneyland Paris and we’ll send them all off to Tom Wolber. We will remove your name from what we send if you wish to stay anonymous.
