Disneyland Paris Chief Operating Officer Daniel Delcourt set the tone for the event by recalling the pillars that have been the very essence of the resort destination for more than 27 years: “Meeting our guests’ expectations is not enough; our goal is to exceed them. This is what drives us to reinvent ourselves constantly and to be bold, with a desire for innovation and creativity that are at the heart of the Disney DNA.”
At Disneyland Paris, guests are about to “become part of a bigger universe.” From a new Hotel transformation celebrating iconic Marvel art to being immersed in the action in the Parks, guests are invited to step into the Marvel Universe to live out their Super Hero stories like never before.
Guests will soon be able to experience Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel, celebrating 80 years of Marvel storytelling in a typical New York setting, with a contemporary Art Deco style. The Hotel is inspired by a New York art gallery, paying tribute to the city that is home to many iconic Marvel Super Heroes and the artists who created them.
When the Hotel reopens next summer, it will be the very first Hotel dedicated entirely to the celebration of Marvel art, inviting guests to discover the iconic stories and characters of this epic universe with one of the largest publicly viewable collection of Marvel artwork in the world.
Disneyland Paris is collaborating with more 50 artists from Marvel Comics and Marvel Studios to bring together more than 300 pieces of artwork showcasing the wealth of the Marvel Universe – comic book covers, posters, illustrations from films, storyboards, original sketches and more – including never-before-seen and exclusive pieces.
This unprecedented renovation will include entirely redesigned rooms with a modern feel, featuring Marvel artwork in each room and a subtle nod to the legendary Iron Man in all Empire State Club rooms. Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel will also have suites that go above and beyond for fans, including suites themed to Avengers and Spider-Man. The walls will display spectacular works by Marvel artists and even the furniture will include subtle references to these iconic Super Heroes.
Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel will also be the very first Disney Hotel to host Marvel Super Heroes. Guests can have heroic encounters with iconic Marvel Super Heroes in a special location called Super Hero Station. In addition to encountering their favourite heroes every morning, guests can become part of the Marvel action with unique photo locations such as, joining the Collector’s Collection from the Guardians of the Galaxy or wielding Thor’s hammer and more.
Walt Disney Studios Park will be home to a new Marvel-themed area called Avengers Campus, part of a multi-year expansion for the park that will also include a Frozen and Star Wars area, opening in phases starting in 2021. Avengers Campus will immerse guests in action-packed adventures with incredible attractions, heroic encounters and new restaurants.
One of the popular Disney stories that comes to life at Disneyland Paris is Frozen, whose characters have been featured in many shows and parades since the first film was released in 2013. And soon, guests will be able to experience even more adventures with Anna, Elsa, Olaf and their friends at Disneyland Paris.
Disneyland Paris will introduce an enchanting new family journey with a brand-new event: Frozen Celebration.
The festivities will include a dazzling new show four times a day on the parade route starring Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven with incredible dancers and acrobats. An enchanting new float will also bring the magic to life before guests’ eyes.
Also in the coming years, guests will have even more Frozen experiences with a new themed area dedicated to the story, which is part of the multi-year expansion of the Walt Disney Studios Park. As part of the fully immersive land, guests will see in the distance the snow-capped mountain of Arendelle opposite a magnificent lake, with an attraction that will take them to the center of the Kingdom. The area will also include character encounters, a new restaurant and a shop, which will secure a permanent presence of this beloved franchise at Disneyland Paris.
