Fluctuating weather from blazing sun to torrential downpours might confuse you as to what time of year it really is, but make no mistake this is the build up to summer — a 20th Anniversary summer at that!

If you’re busy planning an escape to Disneyland Paris over the next few months, our Calendar has all the latest updates to help prepare your trip.

That includes Monthly Park Hours to the end of July 2012 and Extra Magic Hours right up to November 2012. As you might expect, July is a solid 10am–11pm month for Disneyland Park, while Walt Disney Studios Park only stretches to a 7pm close.

It’s Closures & Refurbishments that trip planners really anticipate, though — and you’re in for a pleasant surprise with the latest dates up to August 2012. As with every summer, the parks will be practically free of refurbishments — only Captain EO and River Rogue Keelboats are listed with their perpetual (and in EO’s case, probably now definitive) closure.

Don’t miss our Season Dates page, either — it’s a simple month-by-month list of shows, parades and seasons. You can see that freshly-returned show The Tarzan Encounter runs until 2nd September 2012, while Disney’s Fantillusion starts for the season from 7th July and runs until the same date.
