Now that Disney has just recently acquired Fox, maybe they can build a French clone of Universal's Simpsons Ride at this park somewhere down the line.
And the ‘Alien Encounter’ as originally intended ;) :D

Funnily enough, we mentioned that exact concept a dozen pages ago or so (the New York façades similar to the American Waterfront of TDS). French fans were talking about this a lot in the past, now that I think about one particular one being very insistant of this "dream view", surely a few of them had seen that concept :hilarious:


Moving forward, Disneyland Paris will have a pannel at IAAPA expo Europe, held in Paris


This will be mid September, which is also when the "public inquiry" (part of the required process to build something in French law) occurs, from what I understand. We will learn more about the projects then, one way or another. Also curious what D23 holds for DLP now that it's fully owned by TWDC

today’s news :

* the goal is to increase visitation to 17.5 million visitors in 2025.

* building surface :
Frozen = 7000 m².
Restaurants (lake) = 2200 m².
Star Wars = 10200 m².

* the lake will have a depth of 3 m.

* The maximum height of the buildings will be 40m. (I think for the frozen mountain)

How about the backstage area for lake shows, I mean like when they have to use barges to move around the area and is the one next to Frozen gonna be the backstage, If so what is going to be the hieght of the bridge or is it going to be similar to EPCOT when they raises the bridge.

Just over 2 and a half acres for Galaxy's Edge? That's disappointing.
In fairness, I don’t think any Disney documentation has ever referred to the forthcoming Star Wars area at WDS as ‘Galaxy’s Edge’. We fans have just speculated that it’ll be that, as that’s the Star Wars expansion being built at DHS and DL. I wouldn’t be surprised if this was something else, as you’re right to note the considerable size difference. This is something smaller, with only one attraction, and may go down a whole different route.

Who knows?

We’re yet to understand the creative direction of the new-look park. If it remains a ‘studios’ park I’d expect these lands to be less immersive than the likes of SW:GE, Pandora and TSL at DHS - it would certainly give them more scope to expand without megabucks.

The weird thing is, The overhead plans that have been released show a building that pretty much matches Rise of the Resistance, but the concept art shows a village. But rise the resistance takes place in caves away from the village, so it will be interesting to see if there are changes to the story or what they’re going to do.
