Disneyland Paris has officially become a park to watch in the theme park world! FACT.
Seriously, I squealed in the office at work today when I saw the announcement from Disneyland Paris. We kinda knew it was going to happen at some point but my god, it is going to be amazing. I can’t wait to start keeping tabs on construction and keeping up to date with it all!
WHAT WE KNOW SO FAR:
- Bob Iger announced a €2 billion multi-year expansion for Disneyland Paris – YES for investment at DLP!
- 3 New Areas for Walt Disney Studios – Marvel, Star Wars & Frozen
- Multi-year development begins from 2021 – it feels like far away but it will be here before we know it!
- Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster reimagined as a ‘high-speed, hyper-kinetic adventure with Iron Man’

As much as there some great rides at Walt Disney Studios including Ratatouille & Tower of Terror, it is in dire need of sprucing up. It is like that bit on the side that you know is there but you just kinda want to ignore at times. Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy visiting Walt Disney Studios when I visit (which is way less than I should as a Disney geek) but Disneyland Parc has a lot more to do, even if WDS is great for thrillseekers.
I’m very much hoping the likes of ‘Armageddon – Les Effets Speciaux‘ is going to be rejigged to fit the Marvel theme area. Honestly, I find the whole attraction boring and annoying. However, I am already preparing myself for the ‘removal’ of ‘Moteurs… Action! Stunt Show Spectacular‘. Yes, more than likely it will be reimagined to fit in with the Marvel area theme but I loved that show! Yes, I know it’s a simple car stunt show and probably won’t be missed by many but come on, it’s thrilling to watch and you gotta love a good show at a theme park, right?
Now all that’s left for us Disney/Theme Park geeks is to start speculating about what else awaits us for this major development. I am probably most looking forward to the Frozen area – that castle, OH MY GOD! If you want to read some speculation already, check out Jordan at Cupcakes and Coasters blog post, sharing her thoughts on what she thinks could be coming to each area –> Cupcakes and Coasters.
If that is not enough to get you feeling excited then seriously, read through the announcement again! Now, where do I find a money tree so I can get myself back to DLP?
That’s all for now!
