While Disneyland Paris has been closed due to the pandemic, work continues on inside to enhance the magic. One of the projects that has been worked on is the Orbitron in Discoveryland. This attraction is described by Disneyland Paris as a “journey to the edge of space.” It was inspired by “Leonardo da Vinci’s visionary drawings of the solar system.” It opened with Disneyland Paris in 1992. In January, it began a refurbishment to give the attraction a refresh.
Since January, the Disneyland Paris Facilities Asset Management and Central Shops teams have worked on the attraction along with some local service workers. During this refurbishment, the attraction received renovated floors, was repainted, had the audio system overhauled, and the queue was updated. The queue update included a new gatehouse for the attraction. There will also be updates to the landscaping around the attractions. This includes updates to shrubs, rocks, and craters that are around the attraction.
During the refurbishment, the entire attraction was dismantled and rebuilt. The attraction’s structure was removed, along with all 12 of hits rockets. The rotating planets also were removed. The attraction will be coming back better than ever upon its return Disneyland Paris promises. There will be future updates for this Disneyland Paris attraction as well so stay tuned to DAPS MAGIC to see them.
