During our recent visit to Disneyland Paris, we managed to snap some photos of the ongoing Discoveryland construction, with large refurbishment work going on at Space Mountain: Mission 2, Videopolis and Les Mystères du Nautilus.

It’s great to see Disneyland Paris investing some heavy work in one of the most beautiful areas of the Park, and it is widely expected that the work going on at Videopolis will lead to the incorporation of a Jedi Academy stage show within the building’s theatre.

You can check out our photo update of the work, and Discoveryland in general, below:

Discoveryland Disneyland Paris

It was a rainy day at Disneyland Paris, and much of Discoveryland is closed off for the refurbishment works.

Scaffolding is up around Space Mountain Mission 2’s launch tube.

Let’s hope they can get all of the cool effects working again.

It’s nice to see so much work being put into this classic attraction.

A rainy track over at Autopia.

Discoveryland Construction

Much of Space Mountain Mission 2’s ground level exterior facade is under tarps.

The lagoon at the front of the attraction has also been drained as work continues here too.

Plenty of signs up informing guests about the work being carried out.

It really is a beautiful building.

Videopolis Disneyland Paris

Tons of scaffolding up around the Cafe Hyperion entrance over at Videopolis.

Lots of covered scaffolding here too. It’s nice to see a block colour at Disneyland Paris that doesn’t have moss growing/watermarks running down it, even if it is only temporary!

We love Videopolis, so let’s hope they do it justice!

Classic Star Tours! Oh, and Captain EO, if you’re into that kind of thing…

Walls completely surround the huge Videopolis building.

With all of the walls and construction, you’d miss the entrance to Discoveryland Station if you blinked.

Whilst there was tons of scaffolding up, we couldn’t see much work going on.

Videopolis Construction

Plenty of construction materials outside the building.

The only downside to all the work is that the shortcut pathway between Discoveryland and Fantasyland is closed, cutting off Discoveryland from the rest of the Park (aside from its entrance from Central Plaza).

Captain EO Disneyland Paris

It’s about time Captain EO went away. There, we said it. Terrible.

Discoveryland Construction

Even more of Discoveryland closed off.

Whilst walls are up, it’s fairly easy to see what is going on behind them.

Workers hard at, erm… work, we guess?

Some old remnants of the fantastic ‘Honey, I Shrunk the Audience‘ are still alive and kicking over at Captain EO.

Star Tours Disneyland Paris

Classic Star Tours! Whilst it desperately needs and update, it was great to see the classic ride film here (considering it is the only iteration left).

We wonder how long this sign will be here for before ‘II’ gets slapped onto it.

So, plenty of Discoveryland construction going on at the moment, with refurbishments all over! Can’t say as we mind. Are you looking forward to seeing it all finished? Let us know in the comments!
