Disney Parks Blog Weekly Recap

posted on July 13th, 2014 by Thomas Smith, Editorial Content Director, Disney Parks

This week, La Place de Rémy, our first themed area based on the Academy Award-winning film “Ratatouille,” opened to guests at Disneyland Paris.


Tom Staggs, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, authored a story on opening day and showed the area’s anchor, L’Aventure Totalement Toquée de Rémy, an attraction that shrinks you down to the size of a rat and whisks you away on an adventure over the rooftops of Paris and through Gusteau’s.

Check Tom’s original story for more details about La Place de Rémy.


And did you see our larger-than-life Olaf made out of sand? The first week of “Frozen Summer Fun LIVE! at Disney’s Hollywood Studios” featured expert sand sculptors building the summer-loving snowman in front of the theme park. Here’s how they did it.

If you’d like more “Frozen” fun this weekend, also check out our video of how to draw Anna at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

I have stopped receiving the Disney Blog daily email. Have they stopped sending these out? I enjoyed reading these everyday first thing in the morning when I get to work!

I also stopped receiving the daily emails recently. Can’t figure out how to get them back. I looked forward to those also.
