  • Refurbishment for the castle after the 15th?

    Does anyone know if the castle will receive a badly needed refurbishment after the (extended) 15th is over?

    Not me, but that would be great.

      Fingers crossed (along with refurb for the rest of fantasyland)

        How about a refurbishing of the whole park to make it look new and shiny?

          I agree to that. Although a lot of work was done before the 15th started, there is still a lot that needs to be done. Some areas of the park still remain in need of major work.

            I agree with the castle refurbishment. The painting and all needs to be redone again. It's been a long time since the last one

              I was quite dissapointed to see the castle not refurbished before all the 15th Anniversary candles were placed up. I made a point of referencing this when I took part in a guest survey in 2003 and good to see my coments were taken on board.

                Perhaps they're waiting for afterwards :-S

                  I'm not sure that's how it works.

                    In the state the Park actually is, from fences to castles, from Alice Labyrinth to Skull Rock and the soon-to-be-sinking pirate ship, it seems like impossible to refurbish all this in only one fiscal year, would take 5 years to refurbish the park and make it look as new as its California counterpart...
                    Even thouth i'm in love with DLP, everytime I go there, the state of things makes me sick to my stomach... Don't go there only a few weeks after having been to any other Disney's Magic Kingdom.... That turned me crazy...

                      I doubt the castle is high up on the priority refurb list. It's true that virtually the whole park has been left to rack and ruin and the problem that they now have is that they need to do it all in one quick go at this point or else get into a 'Forth Bridge' situation

                        I think they'll also rename the castle after "Beauty and the Beast" as "The Castle of Belle and the Beast".

                            I would hate to plan another trip to DLRP and have the castle under rehab. That has always been on the back of my mind. I remember how disappointed Guests were back in 04 when DL's Castle was under tarps. They were dissapointed.

                              True. As badly as I want them to maintain the park. I would rather see the castle in disrepair than under tarps during my visit.

                                I'm visiting TDR and possibly HKDL in '08. So they better get it done in '08 or push it until '10!

                                  I'm still undecided. While I really want to check out the new Tokyo Disneyland Hotel next year and enjoy the 25th Anniversary Celebrations, I really want to return to Disneyland Paris too. I haven't been there in ages and want to check out all the changes (though some were big mistakes in my opinion).

                                    I loved DLP but the thing for me is that there have not been many changes since I've been, whereas it's been mere months since I've last been to TDR and already so many changes are in store by the time I go next year!

                                      True, and the Tokyo Disney Resort offers more bang for your buck in my opinion. If Disneyland Resort Paris had a more worthy second gate, I might just be inclined to make frequent trips. But still, Disneyland Paris is a fantastic Magic Kingdom (definitely the most beautiful and well themed). I'm going mostly to check out Disneyland Paris, and I'm guessing I'll spend half a day tops at the Walt Disney Studios.

                                        From what I know of you from what you type in your post I would forget going to Paris next year. The Studios doesn't have the highly detail archtecture that you like. And you wouldn't be able to spend hours wondering the park looking at the little details and soaking in the atsmophere. Disneyland park has the details but you will be dissapointed by the upkeep. And you will find any hotel you stay at not to be up to the standard of the Mira Costa.
