Today, Chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company Robert A. Iger announced plans for a 2 billion euro, multi-year expansion for Disneyland Paris alongside French President Emmanuel Macron at the Palais de l'Elysée in Paris.
The new development will include a transformation of the Walt Disney Studios Park, adding three new areas that are based on Marvel, Frozen, and Star Wars, along with multiple new attractions and live entertainment experiences.
The focal point for entertainment experiences will be a new lake that will connect each of the three new areas. This is one of the most ambitious projects at Disneyland Paris since its opening in 1992. The new areas will be immersed with some of Disney's most beloved stories and characters.
"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."
The multi-year development will roll out in phases beginning in 2021, significantly expanding the Walt Disney Studios Park.
