    I went with my wife to Disney Paris about two months ago and I would like to share a little bit of our experience there with all the SW stuff related.

    - The Hyperspace Mountain - This attraction was adapted in 2015 (we can see that clearly). Former called Space Mountain: De la Terre a la Lune it was opened in 1995. The ride its crazy and I though I was going to die (I hate roller-coasters , I just went because is SW related). As I said before the attraction was adapted so I didn't feel like a genuine SW stuff.

    - Star Tours - We decide to not go because the line was huge and I went to this ride in Disney LA eight years ago, I imagined that its the same attraction.

    - Legends of the Force: A Celebration of Star Wars. (This was I enjoyed the most).
    + Imperial March with a lot of troopers and an imperial officer marching in the streets of the park;
    + First Order March. Phasma and FO troopers marching in the streets of the park;
    + Star Wars: A Galaxy far far Away. Rey, Chewie, Bb-8, Phasma, Boba fett, Maul, C-3P0 and more characters staging some passages from the movie. Effects acoustic and visuals very cool.
    + Star Wars: A Galatic celebration Show. A passage to various moments of the films. Special effects very impressive. Sound and all the acting was pretty nice. It almost made me cry. I Loved it!
    + Encounter with Chewbacca: My wife stayed in the line to take some pictures with Chewie. Pretty cool, specially for the kinds.

    - The SW store: Everything was very expensive. I didn't buy anything except the photo that I took with my wife and Chewie.

    One thing that I noticed was the lack of prequels materials related. Even in the shows there is only Darth Maul from the prequels, the only PT era character. In the stores I would dare to say that 50% is ST, 40% is CT and maybe 10% of the merchandising is for the PT. Strange because I know that I lot of people from the generation before loves the prequels.

    If you've been to Disney Paris or any other Disney around the world and would like to share your SW experiences there you are welcome.

    Sounds like there's a lot more SW content now than there was when I last visited in September 2015 - Star Tours was open, with the full scale X-Wing outside and there was a short show in the building opposite where kids were Jedi Training and the SW store with the Build Your Own Saber and Droid Factory stalls (both of which were damned pricey for what you could do), but that was it. Space Mountain was actually closed, presumably as it was being re-purposed.

    I just hope the Star Wars Galaxy Edge comes to Disneyland Paris in a near future!
