Transformative Multi-Year Expansion Announced for WDS Paris

I hope we don't get Tron for multiple reasons:
1) We already have two launched coasters and I don't think we need a third
2) It would not fit into Discoveryland at all (if necessary it could go where Pizza Planet was but that would mean it is very hidden and its key selling feature is its kinetic element)
3) It is very short and once you wipe away the gloss a bit disappointing

If we have to get it I think it should go as a mini land in WDSP however I don't foresee that happening.
Yup, it would go right here.

I agree, soarin' makes sense in discovery land. Mickey and Minnie's will be coming and I think they should ship, carpets of Aladdin over from WDS to Disneyland. Makes more sense and is a cheap addition there.

Disneyland park do need new attractions.
- splash mountain
- Aladdin’s ride relocated to adventure land. I think that’s where it is in wee if I remember
- tron would be good but unsure of the space
- fantasyland could do with some more
- Adventureland is pretty bare as most of it is taken up by the adventure isle bit which is good but would be cool to have more rides and attractions
- Frontierland is a bit dead around he area where the train station is could do with something there

Make it based on "Around the World in 80 Days", and I think I could accept that.

Seems like a great way to keep the Discoveryland theme and avoid similarities with other similar attractions in Europe. Because while I think that Soarin would be a great addition, it's not really a priority for me since other parks and cities have it here (these attractions are on a different level but I'm not sure how the average guest would see the differences like we do). Jules Verne etc might be the perfect solution if we're ever going to see it in DLP. That's without Tron and the Star Wars overlay for Space Mountain for me though. Going to be interesting to see what we can expect for Disneyland park: MMRR, adventureland expansions...

Is there anyone with more insight in how planning of expansions works for DLP, Paris and France? I get that there are several required steps in the proces and that it can take a while. But with the expansion for WDS being announced, the public inquiry in september... for expansions opening in 2024-2025, is it unrealistic to expect major changes in Disneyland park around that time without any big announcements now?

I believe that the WDSP expansion process takes a little longer because some of the land has yet to be acquired by Disney, and is still part of the "convention" that I have mentioned throughout the thread.

I would like to say it is realistic to expect new things for Disneyland Park, but that is what I have said in the past; and the announcements I've been expecting for a while are yet to ... well.. be announced... So I'm not really sure anymore what that means in terms of timelines. Still hoping to get real news at D23, I guess.

Just throwing this speculation in here... what if the Jungle Book attraction (using the Shanghai pirates tech) that was rumored to be proposed for an EPCOT India pavilion were added to DLP’s Adventureland?

I mean, I’d love Moana Splash Mountain, but this would also be something I could get behind.

Yeah we can't really call it a leak, since it will be part of the official (French) process. It starts on June 17 at 9am, CET time (until July 17th).

Anyone willing to go to the city hall of Chessy will get to see these details, so by noon it will have spread everywhere (I will make sure to report about it here, if Remy doesn't do so first :) )

They announced a Star Wars expansion, not another Galaxy's Edge. While I do hope that DHS gets the additions it deserves, this does not seem that different from what we already knew to me. Or am I missing something? There are also some major differences between the visitors in the US and the European/French visitors. For example the droid depot and the lightsaber building are key elements in the GE experience. Sure, that would also work in Paris to some extent. But would it be as interesting for them to invest in that kind of features here in Europe when merchandise is less important for the visitors here? I'm not only talking about the difference in scale here, but mainly about the features the crowd might be looking for.

Once again Disneyland Paris remains a discount park, without ambition in its development.
I miss Tom Staggs.
Tom Staggs was no different and was key to crafting Disney’s current strategy back when Strategic Planning still existed.

Just to play devil's advocate here, both Start Tours and Hyperspace Mountain were walk-ons for me last week. Obviously, I'm from the US and can't speak to the cultural significance of Star Wars in Europe, but both Star Wars rides had no wait. Still, you can't deny that both of the parks need significant investment for both maintenance and additions. That Studios park is pretty sad!
