2014 marked Magical DLP’s first full year in operation after Andrew (my boss!) opened the show in November 2013. Half way through 2014 I came onto the scene to help deliver news and opinion – little did I know that I’d also be finding myself co-hosting a Podcast! At Disneyland Paris 2014 has been another year packed full of excitement, with the cherry on the top of course being the opening of the major new attraction, Ratatouille: The Adventure, alongside the usual rumour and speculation of what else might be coming soon. So as the year draws to a close, I’m rounding up my favourite Magical DLP stories to help us look back and appreciate what a magical year we’ve had.
Episode 4 is all about Pirates of the Caribbean! We discuss the past, present and future of the attraction. We also read out a selection of listener opinions and feedback.
It’s always best to get the bad news out of the way first – and the bad news this month is that there really isn’t much action at all regarding Disneyland Paris rumours. Sure things have happened, the upgrade for Star Tours to Star Tours: The Adventures Continue has been confirmed for 2017 and a tiger has been seen roaming around the area near Disneyland Paris. (Actually on that story, I never heard the end of it. Did they catch it? Did it eat anybody? Was it just a Cast Member who forgot to remove his Tigger costume?) These things aren’t really rumours though; there’s been an ominous lack of speculation and debate even on Twitter this month. The good news is that this gives me free-reign to go a little more left-field and tackle some less current rumours and embellish my own thoughts a little bit. OK, well that’s good news for me at least!
Episode 3 is all about Phantom Manor! We discuss the past, present and future of the attraction, which sends you to the underworld of the mining town Thunder Mesa.
