After all this time, change is coming for Disneyland Paris supporters. Disneyland Paris seems to have confirmed via a tweet that a round of in-depth and intense refurbishment at its two parks is more than just rumor. A massive push has been made by fans of the resort over the past month to chronicle to conditions at the European resort, which famously lags far behind the quality of the American and Asian parks.

According to the tweet, Disneyland Paris had conducted a "What's New? What's Next?" event on 26 September.

In the parks, the facades Main Street, U.S.A. in Paris will be completely rebuilt using "durable" materials, indicating that the entire street will be constructed using real building materials like Disney California Adventure's new Buena Vista Street rather than fiberglass, sculpted material, and wood. The Town Square Photography shop will be removed for a new shop.

At Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril, the temple itself will be leveled and rebuilt in real stone and the roller coaster will be extensively refurbished, including the replacement of the signature loop. Big Thunder Mountain will recieve a "safety upgrade" that will increase the ride's throughput and reliability, while the notoriously painful experience at Space Mountain: MIssion 2 will be improved via "more comfortable seats." (We, of course, hope for the removal of the over-the-shoulder restraints altogether).

At Walt Disney Studios, a new tram will be added to the Studio Tram Tour to increase the ride's throughput, and the Moteurs… Action! Stunt Show Spectacular will be extensively refurbished to return all of its effects and stunts.

The resort also plans to add single rider lines to each of its attractions - at least one per year - beginning with the notoriously low-capacity Crush's Coaster.
