It’s great to see Disneyland Paris getting some new attractions for the 25th show, the current nightshow Dreams is amazing, but that was brought in for the 20th Anniversary. I’m also glad Discoveryland is getting some more Star Wars attractions, slowly turning that area into a smaller version of Star Wars Land. Now I just need to start saving for a few days away to celebrate.
