Transformative Multi-Year Expansion Announced for WDS Paris

Some news from a source with a good track record, so I trust him but the news are quite shocking:
  • The "multi year" expansion is actually laid out in the 3 following phases:
    • 1st: All 3 lands open at the same time (and the "3" are not including Marvel. What does he mean by that, I'm not sure. Could be the "Lake" land?)
    • 2nd: 1 ride +territory development
    • 3rd: 1 ride
  • Philippe Gas is coming back. Yes, you read that right.
  • Disney village plan is, as I've already said before, finalized. Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show is not going to survive the transformation.
  • The new hotel should be ready by 2024.
  • A new large outdoor show will debut in the Parc Disneyland (no timeline indication though)
  • Philharmagic will be "disgusting" (that can mean 2 radically different things in French, but I don't think it's the good one here. Probably will be just a simple movie projection?)
  • The Halloween and Christmas seasons should be great. (Well hopefully he doesn't mean the castle stage because that's a failure).

I'm double posting because I want to expand a bit on the first part of my previous post, and the reasoning behind it:

This source has, since the very beginning, mentioned that the strategy was similar to when you open a new park. The expansion is so massive that they are basically opening a 2nd WDSP. This means that the pricing will drastically change, as they intend that people finally consider both parks as "at least 1-day per park".
Currently, you would typically spend a third of your stay at the resort in WDSP, and 2 third in Parc Disneyland. Some people would skip WDSP entirely.
They want to make it clear that if park-hopping would still be in your plans, you would pay a hefty price. Thus expect a major change in the ticketing offerings when this "new park" opens.

Could this be Fantasmic? I would have thought a new outdoor show would come to WDSP since the concept art kind of shows seating/viewing areas around the lake.

Are you saying the new lands won’t open with all of their rides? Or are the 2nd and 3rd phases different from the lake expansion?

Are all these phases just related to WDSP, if so maybe these other rides could be the ride behind tower of terror, or alien swirling saucers.

Or it could refer to the ones in DLP..

Really surprised ToT made the cut without a planned re-themed. I'm not surprised that absolutely every ******* land is going to be based on an IP

Omg!! Is it really happening? But I thought it wouldn’t open till after the holiday season? Would be so bumped if it’s only for a meet and greet 😞
It's not a confirmation that this is happening, but it's certainly not pointing in the other direction. It would be an overlay during the holiday season, just not this one.

If that’s hinting at Nightmare before Christmas moving in then they can get stuffed. I’d rather a unique overlay in which the house is done up Christmas but in a creepy fashion of course with new Christmas soundtrack and such so it’s still Phantom Manor but Christmas.. like Small World Holiday.. Haunted Mansion Holiday is too much and is a completely different ride to me.

Philippe Gas is leaving Shanghai? When will that happen?

So, as it turns out, long story short, this was a fake picture sent to ED92 by a random guy...
Good. However ED92 is seemingly in the park every single day, surely they could have gone over and had a look to confirm.

Yeah, and they were in the parks that day, just somewhere else in the resort and they just trusted that person... Shouldn't have!
