Transformative Multi-Year Expansion Announced for WDS Paris

Actually I think Paris would be a good place for a boutique third park. An expanded galaxy’s edge/ hotel boutique experience would be an interesting concept and Paris would probably be the best resort to try something like this IMO.

Isn't WDS already a boutique park? lol

You want another half day park there?

So a toy story ride seems in the mix + 1 Star Wars + 1 Frozen. And maybe Soarin behind ToT? A weak line up if you ask me, plus that Tram Tour retheme is so sad.
You know, I felt that way too after all the hype and the big 2B€ figure smashed into our faces. Then I thought about it, and the fact that the park will be so much bigger, with real places that you can actually sit down, relax, enjoy the scenery / lake / etc. It's not that bad, I know I'll be thrilled to really spend more than my routine "2hours to ride Crush, Ratatouille, ToT, RnRC, take some pictures and then off to the main one for the rest of my stay"...

Phase 2 needs to address the removal of the stunt show and the tram tour.
It should. But DLP and phases 2 don't go along so well.

That being said...

If you go back to my very first post on this forum, I had originally heard that HKDL Avengers E-Ticket would *eventually* go instead of the stunt show. And some sort of Cars Land where Tram Tour is. Although we are talking about things so far in the future, I have no doubts these plans will change...

Completely agree.

I think we have to look at this as the beginning of the second half of DLPs era following the 25th and leading up to the 50th. I know that is a long time and depressing when you think how old you will be in 25 years time but some people have been following DLP since day one and unfortunately they didn't see the expansion they were expecting up until now.

We all know money doesn't go far with WDI so whilst what we appear to be getting may seem disappointing I think a significant sum will be going into the physical land prep, expanding WDSP into the lake area, relocating admin facilities, legalities etc. which only needs to be done once so further expansions pads are ready to go.

I also think once (hopefully) an attraction or two is announced for Disneyland Park people will be more optimistic.

Disneyland park needs more. Here’s what I think. They really need to relocate alladin to the main park as it fits in better there. Splash mountain or similar water ride. Would love to see a mine train ride but don’t think that’ll be happening. Tron would be cool. But I think the main focus should be Frontierland and adventure land as these lands seem to be spaces out with not much in between

I would love to see Aladdin moved into the main park, maybe on the site of Cafe De La Brousse. A flat ride more in keeping could take it's place, maybe something similar to the Inside Out attraction at California Adventure (Beens as Disney seems to want to imitate the same attractions across each resort).

Also agree, Frontierland/Adventure Land is crying out for a big attraction. Splash would be the obvious choice, but I would not say no to large scale rapids attraction either. That could be more feasible if people are concerned about the weather/water situation.

In other news: the Frozen 2 trailer makes me even more excited for the Frozen section of WDS.

In reaction to some people being "disappointed" in how little the new plans offer:
A lake with 3 themed lands, option for a 4th , 2 extra e tickets, extra dining, parade, evening show in addition to already some nice parts of WDS is exactly what is needed to improve the park.
It's an expansion in proportion with the DLP parks. Comparing this to the SW:GE in America for example wouldnt do neither expansions justice.

Edit: To sum up the new WDS; it would make around 7 e ticets in the park ( SW, Frozen, RnRc, ToT, Crush, Ratatouile, Toy Story), around 5 themed areas (SW, Frozen, Marvel, 'France/Ratatouile', Toy Story), with both the tower and the lake available for shows, several great and important avenues for parades and several other stand alone rides, dining options and gift shops apart from the themed areas.
Sounds like a complete and balanced park to me.

It's a blessing they are doing several things for the Disneyland Park aswell otherwise WDS would outshine the "main" park.

Also, do not forget that both WDS and DLP are practically intertwinted with not only each other but also the hotel area and off course the to be upgrades Disney Village aswell.

DLP would greatly benefit with a log flume ride.

It just doesn't feel right to not have Splash Mountain at all.
