One of the best things about visiting a Disney Park is that each individual Disney Resort as a whole has so much more to offer than just theme parks.

If we look at Walt Disney World Resort, we know there are a ton of fun things that Guests are able to do when they are not visiting Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. From mini-golf to dining to shopping and so much more, the opportunities are endless. One of my favorite non-Park things to do, however, is visiting the 25+ Disney Resorts on property. Every Disney Resort is so well-themed and has a lot of detail to explore, so spending a few hours at one is a great way to enjoy a vacation.

At Disneyland Paris Resort, the Disneyland Hotel is one that Guests cannot get enough of. It is the flagship Resort of the Disney Paris Resort, and is currently receiving some upgrades described by Disney as: 

A royal renovation
The Disneyland Hotel will be transformed into a fairy tale kingdom fit for our beloved Disney Princesses and Princes. From classics like Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, to more recent hits like Frozen and Tangled. Expect refined, storytelling décor and magical touches that will surprise and delight the whole family, as only Disneyland Paris can do.

As you can see from the photo pictured above, the new rooms will be stunning. Right now, however, the refurb has caused the lights to go out at the Disneyland Resort!

InsideDlpCastle (@InsideDlpCastle) posted a shot of the facade of the building where we can see all of the lamps are missing, as well as what it looked like with the lamps in place. The English translation of the Tweet is:

The exterior lamps on the various facades of the Disneyland Hotel have been removed.

The lights will likely quickly return in a refurbished and fresh format, but for now, it looks like the hotel’s exterior will be a little darker than usual. Since the hotel is being refurbished, right now, a great option is to stay at Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel or Disney’s Newport Bay Club!

At Disneyland Paris, lots of changes are coming to Walt Disney Studios as well as their Disneyland Park, with the 30th anniversary just months away. Walt Disney Studios is adding a massive addition that will include Star Wars, Marvel, and Frozen, as well as their very own Avengers Campus, which will be the first section to open in the Park. One of the biggest changes that we have seen is on Sleeping Beauty Castle, which was covered by a box facade for months. Recently, Disney began to uncover the castle to reveal a stunning, magical masterpiece.

Soon, we can add the Disneyland Hotel to that list of updated areas of Disneyland Paris Resort!

What else do you think needs a touch-up when it comes to the Disney Parks?
