  • What is going on with Phantom Manor?

    What is going on with Phantom Manor and why is it taking so long to complete the refurb? Does anyone have an estimated time of completion??? Because, as of right now, it is going into the beginning of May! I thought it was to completed by Jan! What is going on?

    I posted about this some time ago. The original refurbishment and plussing should have been ready for October 2018 ( and was almost complete as some teasers showed last summer). My theory is that they found some severe structura damage in the process (i.e. heavy structural rotting) that lead to an indefinite closure (which, with the years of neglect in DLP maintenance, is possible). Hopefully it will re-open by your visit! Theyve been pretty vague about a re opening date!

          Again, please post updates on this:

          According to an Instagram post by insta_disneydust, Phantom Manor will be reopening on May 11, 2019.
          The post reportedly shows a list of 2019 refurbishment dates and we can see Phantom Manor listed at the bottom of the page.

            I'll be making my first trip to Disneyland Paris in July, so May 11 sounds just fine!

            No matter where you go, there you are.

              (Sorry, the link didn't work. I was sharing a story similar to the one above--this one from WDW News Today that shared a "rumor" it'll open on May 10--a day earlier than was predicted above.)

              This site below states that it'll be closed till the end of June & that Pirates will also be closed for much of June. WEAK!

              The Disneyland Paris website looked exactly like Disneyland's but it was a bit buggy & inconsistent. In one section it stated that Phantom Manor will be open in June, but in another it stated that it will be closed. If you contrast the attractions that are closed during the summer at Disneyland Paris with Disneyland in Anaheim, Disneyland Paris is not operated nearly as well.

                (Not done ranting!) I've been telling my young teen about Phantom Manor for over a decade, but according to one location on Disneyland Paris' web page, Phantom Manor, Pirates & the Alice maze will all be closed when we're there in June. Elsewhere on another (unnecessary) list of closures it states that Phantom Manor will end its long, long closure at the end of May. Bad communication. Also the page is "buggy" at times when I tried to click on the closure/refurbishment calendar.

                Disney's American resorts make more of an effort to have more of its best attractions open during its busy summer months.
                Very disappointed in those running Disneyland Paris.

                    Thanks, Oliver!
                    I just saw this good news on two other outlets as well including "Laughing Place."
