Marvel is back at The Walt Disney Studios Park at Disneyland Paris but this time it’s taken the spring slot instead of summer. The season brings back much of what was offer last year including the Marvel: Super Hero’s United stage stage in the Studio Theatre and the Stark Expo on the outdoor stage in Production Courtyard as well as meet and greets with Marvel characters and the return of the marvel character statues but Disneyland Paris seem to have listen to the criticism from last year and improved everything about the season.
Marvel: Super Hero’s United returns in the Studio Theatre and whilst the show follows the same plot as last year with Thanos manipulating the avengers to fight against each other many of the special effects that were the cause of so many issues last year have been improved or simplified to improve reliability. Lighting thought-out the theatre has been generally improved and now in the final battle scene each avenger has their own segment of fighting giving them a chance in the spot light.
Star Expo: Make Way For A Better Tomorrow has had the most radical change with almost a whole new plot involving Red Skull and Hydra with Loki attempting to steal the Arc Reactor from Black Widow, Spiderman and Thor and almost succeeding until Captain Marvel shows up.
Guardians of The Galaxy: Awesome Dance-Off! returns this year with pretty much everything the same as last year with with Peter Quill needing the help of guest to dance their way out of a bind to classic pop/funk/soul music. This year however a special care package has been sent to help in the form of Groot.
Meet & Greets
Captain America and Spiderman are back to meet guests but Spiderman now has a new location outside of Blockbuster cafe in a new photo location with the original WDS taxi as well as the taxi from the former Hotel New York. New for this season however, making her debut in Disneyland Paris, is Captain Marvel who is meeting guest in the former Spiderman meet and greet area.
The meet & greets have dropped the need for the Lineberty reservation system which is good news for regular parks guest as the system was very confusing for casual visitors resulting in many disappointed guests not being able to meet their hero’s but now expect long waits to meet these characters.
Food & Snacks
The Marvel themed food and snack offerings around the park has vastly been improved this year with a new selection Groot Cookies, Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Tape chocolate cake, Captain Marvel Waffle, Chilli & Veggie falafel dishes and a spicy Doritos burger available at En Coulisse.
The Season as a Whole
Disneyland Paris has done a fantastic job in improving the season, the upgrades to the shows are all very welcome and the additional meet and greets defiantly help especially when the Walt Disney Studios in currently starting its major transformation which means lots of attractions and shows are currently closed or closing very soon. Hopefully Marvel: Super Heroes United won’t have as many technical problems as it did last year and the season will help keep the Marvel hype going before Marvel lands comes to Walt Disney Studios Park.
