New queue and seating area enhancements will soon be added to several locations across Disneyland Paris to further shield guests from potentially uncomfortable or hazardous weather. Recently released concept art showcases planned roof structures soon coming to the Casey’s Corner terrace at Disneyland Park Paris and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror attraction’s Rose Garden at Walt Disney Studios Park; though no concept art was shared, queue enhancements are also planned for Peter Pan’s Flight at Disneyland Park Paris.
Queue and Seating Area Enhancements Coming to Disneyland Paris
The concept art and information was posted by @DLPReport on X, formerly known as Twitter.
The first piece of art depicts a roof that’s planned to be built atop Casey’s Corner’s exterior seating area. The structure aesthetically matches the Victorian-style architecture of the Casey’s Corner quick-service restaurant and the general classical elegance of Main Street U.S.A. It looks as though the new roof will be connected to or built directly against the awning that currently protrudes from the restaurant’s facade and covers a portion of its sidewalk.
The roof will match the classic white, yellow, and brown color scheme of Casey’s Corner. The seating area currently contains several tables and chairs, and though red-and-white striped umbrellas are placed intermittently throughout the location, there isn’t any substantial protection from the elements.
A character meet-and-greet kiosk will also be constructed at the current meet-and-greet location across from Casey’s Corner, according to @DLPReport. An image of the current map of Disneyland Park Paris featuring an uncovered Casey’s Corner seating area is pictured below; the nearby meet-and-greet location is represented by the ‘hat’ icon.
A roof structure is also planned for the Rose Garden outside of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror attraction at Walt Disney Studios Park. Though portions of the attraction’s exterior queue are currently covered and a section of its queue is inside the attraction building itself, the Rose Garden is currently uncovered. The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror opened at Walt Disney Studios Park in 2007 and is a near-clone of the former Disney California Adventure version of the attraction, which closed in 2017.
A roof is also planned for the Peter Pan’s Flight queue, though no concept art was revealed. A portion of the attraction’s queue is currently roofed, but long wait times often force guests to wait in open areas with no protection. Peter Pan’s Flight was an opening day attraction at Disneyland Paris and is one of the park’s most popular attractions.
Protection from potentially hazardous weather conditions is particularly important at Disneyland Paris given the occasionally harsh European winters. The average temperature in Chessy, France (the technical location of Disneyland Paris) from December–February is 39°F–40°F (roughly 5°C) and the average daily temperature only usurps 60°F four months out of the year. This, combined with the occasional snowfall, necessitates protective structures throughout the resort.
Walt Disney Studios Park is currently in the midst of a multi-year, multi-billion dollar expansion first announced in 2018. Arendelle: World of Frozen is currently under construction at the park; it figures to be quite similar to the World of Frozen set to open at Hong Kong Disneyland on November 20, 2023.
