Remedies All Round

Following on from yesterday's post, looking at the walls of the Deli, we can see some interesting adverts on one of the walls near Huntington's on Main Street U.S.A.

Not only can we find Shaker Apple Sauce, and some delicious Washington Crisps here, but we can also find some Humphrey's Remedies. Remedies for ailments such as whooping cough, coughs, la grippe and teething. It looks like Humphrey's Witch Hazel Ointment will help almost anyone!

Around the Walls

The Market House Deli, located on Main Street U.S.A. in Paris, is one of the most interesting counter service locations in Parc Disneyland. We're going to have a look at it in our 'Quick Bite' series in a few weeks, but for now, I thought it would be nice to continue our appreciate of the Parisian park by having a look at some of the sights of this Deli...

As we should all know by now, the walls can be some of the most interesting areas of the Disney Theme Parks! Take, for example, one of the walls in the Market House.

Full of period specific posters, adverts and goods, the decoration in this restaurant is next to none. I don't know about you, but that poster really makes me wish I had one of those Home Washing Machine and Wringer items!

And here, we can have a look at some of the goods the Deli can sell to guests.

What a relief! I was wondering where I could buy eggs!

Enjoying a Moment...In China

Wishing everyone a belated Happy Chinese New Year, today's moment will take us to the beautiful China pavilion in Epcot.

Fill Up!

With the opening of Cars Land in Disney's California Adventure approaching ever closer, it's nice to wander around the Radiator Springs of Walt Disney Studios, Paris, thinking about how it may look in Anaheim.

We can pause at Cars Quatre Roues Rallye and enjoy the spectacular lighting.

But have a closer look, and at night time the attraction clearly takes on the form of Flo's V8 Cafe!

Let's stop by for a fill up.

How To Slink

When you pick up your Slinky ZigZag Spin, you might need to figure out how to assemble the game.

No need to worry - it comes complete with instructions!

Make sure to follow the figures and steps, otherwise it might not turn out exactly as expected.

Buy Your Tyres

Heading through Radiatorville you may find that you are in need of some new tyres.

Look no further than Luigi's Casa Della Tires!

It looks like they are having a Lightyear Tire Sale at the moment, too. It must be part of the post-Christmas January Blues!

And luckily it looks like they might be open after hours as well. Thank goodness!

Through to the Other Side

After yesterday's look at the barrel of fun to be found in Toy Story Playland, we step through the barrel to see what is on the other side...

Just another example of how Disney Imagineers change the theming as you step out of one land and into another.

Perhaps this is some preparation for an area themed around the Disney Pixar movie Ratatouille?

Only time will tell.

Barrel of Fun

You can't have too much fun when you visit Walt Disney Studios in Paris. In fact, you can have a barrel of fun!

One of the main entrances to Toy Story Playland in Paris is through a tub of Barrel of Monkeys.

And watch out for some of the Barrel of Monkeys playing around overhead!

Back From the Bathroom

After a New Year's break, DF'82 is back with avengance! And for the next few days, we're going to go back to where it all began at this blog... Disneyland Paris! Perhaps some of the most overlooked of the Disney Parks, Parc Disneyland and Walt Disney Studios have so much to offer the regular tourist and the Disney Uber-fan.

Let's test your memory. Can you think where you might find these toilets, or maybe a little bit more polite, bathrooms?

If you think about where you can also meet Prince Charming and Cinderella, you are much closer to the answer.

Of course, at Auberge de Cendrillon!

Pause For Thought

DF'82 is going to be quiet for the next few days, readying our brain for some fantastic Disney Details and Hidden Treasures from the Disney Parks around the world!

We will be back later in January, roaring and ready to go with some Magic well into 2012!

Mele Kalikimaka!

As the title suggests, DF'82 wants to wish you a (belated) Merry Christmas from Hawaii!

Or more specifically, Disney's Polynesian Resort.
