It's probably done before but I made a very very quick overlay of the map with some aerials of SW:GE in DL. Orange = the big building planned for SW in Paris, blue = RotR in DL, red = very messy overview of GE in DL. Like I said, this was done quickly. I used Google Maps, some aerials, the image you posted for Paris and the measurement tools in Google Maps so it's not really accurate but the overall image should be correct.

I really don't get why they would open up the space directly beneath the yellow border to build all those non-Disney buildings inside 'the circle'. What is the plan for this piece of land anyway? Residential or commercial? It's so close to the park's border and if they ever would want to expand the Studios park even further, those new buildings are in the way.

Interesting to see that after all this expansion, the park will really just be in a position to better accommodate more expansion.

A part of what's pictured is already there or under construction as far as I know. It's around Val d'Europe (shopping center). I think they don't really need that space for future expansions of the studios since there cleary are some big gaps around the lake. Especially with the possibility of a third gate, space in the studios doesn't seem like one of the biggest problems to me.
