The Galactic Starport
There were a few things different the last time I went to Disneyland Paris, last November, compared to five+ years prior. The most notable to me was the portion of Discoveryland adjacent to Fantasyland, where Star Tours was located. The whole area had been reconfigured to more of a space port aesthetic, with more prominent architecture fronting the entrance into the Star Tours. Most photogenic was the facade of the attraction's souvenir store, Star Port, highlighted by a full sized X-Wing sitting on a landing pad. This was a contrast to the previous time I saw it, perched much closer to ground level (but still looking pretty sleek and majestic). I'm not even sure when this all changed over, but I do dig the new, futuristic aesthetic!
