Today was one of the best days since long for many Disneyland Paris fans. The new announcement came both as a total surprise, and also was to be expected. As the Walt Disney Studios park was in desperate need of some attention.


The expansion plan is one of the most ambitious development plans since the opening of Disneyland Paris back in 1992. The new development will be much more of a transformation than it will be an addition. The plan includes three new areas that are based on Marvel, Frozen and Star Wars, along with multiple new attractions and live entertainment experiences.

“We’re very excited about the future of Disneyland Paris and continue to invest in its long-term success. The resort is already the leading tourist destination in Europe, and the transformative expansion we announced today will add even more of our beloved characters and unparalleled storytelling to create new lands, attractions and entertainment that further elevate the guest experience and drive new opportunities for tourism in this dynamic region.”


Said Robert A. Iger, chairman and chief executive officer of The Walt Disney Company. He announced the plans alongside French President Emmanuel Macron at the Palais de l’Elysée in Paris.

The multi-year development will roll out in phases beginning in 2021, significantly expanding the Walt Disney Studios Park. In addition to the three new areas, the creative vision includes a new lake, which will be the focal point for entertainment experiences and will also connect each of the new park areas.
