The DLP Guide Calendar now has the latest Disneyland Paris park opening hours and attraction closures for October 2014, in its usual easy-to-use format.
Amongst the information, the revelation that Captain EO will return (again!) from its “seasonal” closure for an opening on most days during the Halloween month. Only the first Wednesday (1st) and the following two Mondays-to-Wednesdays (6th to 8th, 13th to 15th) are excluded, so if you want “one last chance” the experience the classic sci-fi Michael Jackson 3-D theatre show, this is it (again!).
The attraction had been thought by most to have seen its last days in Paris, with all rumours pointing to the Discoveryland space being used for a Star Tours/Wars expansion in future years. This seasonal re-opening at least provides Disneyland Park with one more covered attraction for the colder and wetter time of year.
Other October closures are largely as normal for the month, while park hours are practically identical to those of last year.

Twenty new 2014 updates are now available on the DLP Guide Disneyland Paris Restaurant Menus pages, the most comprehensive guide to dining at the resort anywhere, and here they are in full:

Can you believe it? Walt Disney Studios Park has a new restaurant. Not just any dining location, either, but a fully-themed, immersive Table Service restaurant with views through to the unload area of Ratatouille: L’Aventure Totalement Toquée de Rémy.
But a restaurant is only as good as its menu, and that’s where we can help. Bistrot Chez Rémy is the first update in an epic refresh of our Disneyland Paris Restaurant Menus, bringing every page up to date for 2014.
It might also be here where Bistrot Chez Rémy divides opinion. While everyone can think of many superlatives to describe the restaurant itself, the limited and rather expensive set menu based mainly around steak and fries — a concept similar to the small but esteemed French chain Relais de Venise – L’Entrecote — seems to be leading to some disappointment from visitors eager to dine within the world of Ratatouille.
What are your thoughts? Will you be booking a table from 10th July?

Our trip to the Ratatouille: The Adventure Grand Opening previews at Disneyland Paris probably saw more time spent looking at phone and camera screens than directly at the spectacular new attraction and its beautiful Place de Rémy area development — so here are the results!
DLP Guide is proud to present five brand new, original videos featuring Ratatouille: L’Aventure Totalement Toquée de Rémy, including a full on-ride “POV” ridethrough of the attraction itself. However, if you’ve yet to ride, it’s definitely advisable not to watch this video yet — try our “non-spoiler” walkthrough tour instead: it gives you a taste of how the attraction looks and works without spoiling any of the main scenes (which with their myriad of effects, including 3D, are impossible to capture on camera anyway).
An extra-special bonus is a full, original video of the Grand Opening Ceremony itself, featuring Disney CEO Bob Iger himself in a rare public appearance at Disneyland Paris.
For a look at the making of the new attraction, we’ve also got three extra official press video clips, including a great HD timelapse video:
