In addition to describing in detail a map created in 2003 by Imagineer Peter McGraph to show a direction the Studios could take (including two of Disneyland Park’s recent additions), Bell lays out his own (very possible) beliefs about the future direction of the park…
This rumoured future plan includes the following:
2008: Studio Tram Tour station move, route alteration and new sets. New central plaza on old station spot.
2008/09: Expansion of Toon Studio
2009/10: Soarin’ Over The World
2012: New boulevard leading from plaza, with signature attraction at the end.
Almost all of this expansion relies on next year – 2007 – being a huge success for the resort, and with the importance Disneyland Resort Paris is already placing on its 15th Anniversary celebrations, it seems they know this all too well. Should the year produce sufficiant attendance figures, though, Bell believes this timeline to provide an accurate view of the bright future of our Studios.
