Bistro de Paris in the France Pavilion at Epcot is currently seeing a refurbishment. The restaurant will be renamed when it reopens December 9th. It’s new name will be Monsieur Paul. As a reminder, the newly updated restaurant will see a new menu, as well as a bit more of a casual appearance, over it’s previous version.
As a part of the NextGen interactive queue initiative, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad will be receiving some upgrades. The attraction will feature a new backstory with Barnabas T. Bullion who is a gold magnate who rules the Big Thunder Mining Company as the president. He considers gold to be his birthright, and the ultimate gold rush is his destiny. He wants gold from Big Thunder Mountain, however, the mountain is protective of the gold it holds. Ever since the mining started, the mountain seems to have been fighting back, being plagued by natural disasters and mysterious forces. It is the Wildest Ride In The Wilderness!
