Transformative Multi-Year Expansion Announced for WDS Paris

@fradz Do you already know if it's been decided what IP will go in the Adventureland E-ticket? And is that the only DLP ride coming? Or will they also do some new dark rides in fantasyland. I really hoped for a tangled dark ride in fantasyland.

Final question, I know there have been many rumours throughout the years, but is soarin' still a thing for DLP? I was thinking about it and thought it might fit Discoveryland real well.

No no I meant the potential Avengers E-Ticket from HKDL which, you said, was going to potentially be built in Moteurs Action Show. RnRC is also getting an Avengers overlay. So then there will be two Avengers rides next to each other?
RnRC is not getting an Avengers theme but an Iron Man theme. It's different.

Yes; all new rides, including the Adventureland E-Ticket are part of the €2 billion. I believe that additionally, the Disney Village expansion is part of the plan, and some other things.
The rest (new hotels/ hotels renovation /large refurbs) is not part of this budget, AFAIK. I've seen a breakdown before with budget estimates per cost center, but can't find it right now for some reasons...
Thanks. Just to be clear, the €2 billion only covers the plans up to 2025? It does not include second phase additions to the new lands like Avengers E-ticket or Millennium Falcon (if it's absent in initial build)?

https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2018/02/d23j-japan-rock-n-roller-coaster/ Go to this page and you'll see that it says "Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith will be totally reimagined as a high-speed, hyper-kinetic adventure, in which guests will team up with Iron Man and their favorite Avengers".
I think the theory is it will be an Iron Man titled attraction that will feature the Avengers. A bit like how Captain America: Civil War featured many of the Avengers.

I don't know for sure but logic would state this €2 billion wouldn't cover any further expansions or phase 2s. I'm personally surprised about how far they are stretching the money in the first place.

Nothing in Fantasyland for a while, for sure. If something else would be coming along the Adventureland ride (which should be IJA ?); it would be in Frontierland and it would be wet.
I have never ever heard about Soarin rumors to DLP. Only to WDS. Originally between the then-Cinémagique showbuilding and Stitch Live! building, but that's been dropped.
Appears to be back on.
Now showing closed from October 1st and continues through November 5th onwards.
Source? I don't see it in the official calendar

Yeah... Regarding budget, I really don't know who to believe. Just a few days ago I had heard (and thus shared here) that the Adventureland E-ticket was part of the €2 billion. Now, someone else is saying "only the WDS plan" is part of that €2b and that the "DLP plan" was something else. Whatever that means, phase 1 / phase 2 , .... Wait & See

I'm still hoping for a Moana E-ticket in Adventureland. I don't think DLP needs a second Indy ride (not to mention a clone at that), plus Moana would add the Polynesian presence that Adventureland has been missing compared to the other castle parks (as it lacks a Tiki Room).

Did your previous source (marrypoppinsinlove from ED92) say anything about whether DLP expansion is included? The official press release is purposefully vague, only stating that the €2 billion plan includes "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." It's not clear whether those "multiple new attractions" are referring to the new lands or elsewhere in the two parks.

While it would be nice, the Moana ride was rumored to be a water ride. Now what we're hearing is that the water ride would be in Frontierland, if there are 2 rides. I see two scenarios:
- IJA in Adventureland (+maybe Grizzly River Rapids or a logflume close to the Frontierland Station) <--- Most likely scenario, imo.
- Moana in Adventureland (+ maybe something else in Frontierland, but then I really have no clue what)

She is the one who, after more digging, now indicates that there are 2 separate plans, the DLP one being on top of the €2b. Let's see, hopefully we get some kind of announcement by the end of September, because I don't think anything will come out during the summer season.
 
Cinémagique will be back in Studio Theater in November 2018 for the Christmas Season (Confirmed)
I do kinda love how ED92 announced it as a rumour in the morning and by the afternoon it was officially announced via InsideEars.


I'm happy for it's return, sounds like it's a planned on/off season for both shows so the Marvel show will be back in 2019 (assume during the Marvel season). Cinemagique is one of the best Disney shows ever made so glad I get a chance to see it again.
