At Disneyland Paris, Guests are gearing up for quite the year. On March 6, 2022, the 30th anniversary celebrations will begin at Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park, and Disneyland Paris has been prepping for this moment for a long time.

Both Parks have experienced massive refurbishments and construction, as additions and expansions are still underway at the moment. When Walt Disney World Resort announced the 50th anniversary, many were wondering what special additions we would see at the Parks. Of course, there was a ton of merchandise available, multiple new firework shows debuted, and at Magic Kingdom, Guests are treated to a 50th inspired cavalcade multiple times a day, and reminded that “The Magic Is Calling.”

Now, Disneyland Paris has been teasing a big surprise. We have been patiently awaiting what the Tower of Terror reveal would be, as Disney created promotional material hinting at a Tower of Terror surprise. Many were wondering and speculating as to what this could be, with some guessing it would be a new firework show by the attraction, and others fearing that it would be a Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout retheme for Avengers Campus as we saw at Disney California Adventure. Now the secret is out, and it’s a little less spectacular than the promotional material may have made it out to be.

RhinoSheild and Disneyland Paris are now official partners, bringing the “drop-resistant” phone cases to the Parks. The quote of “drop-resistant” was the only tie to the Tower of Terror, so it seems that many Guests may have been up in arms and flooded with curiosity about the fate of the attraction for no reason.

Dedicated to DLP (@DedicatedToDLP) Tweeted:

The Tower of Terror can be marked “Safe from Re-theming”.
The special surprise is…phone cases.

The sarcastic and comical tone in the Tweet reads loud and clear, and it is that Guests are not so impressed.

DisneylandParisGuest (@DLPGuestEN) Tweeted:

They did announce the theme of the 30th anniversary: dissappontment.

The big build-up for the seemingly lackluster announcement has left many other fans waiting for more to come for the 30th celebrations.
