Phillipe Gas, the CEO of Euro Disney S.C.A., talked candidly about some of the upcoming projects Disneyland Paris has in the pipeline.
One of the major announcements centered around a multi-year park expansion that’s planned, starting with the opening of a new attraction in 2014. Not much was said about this new attraction, but Gas did say that it would be French themed and a “world first” ride.
Other plans for the theme park include consideration of a Toy Story interactive attraction. The Toy Story Playland area that opened in 2010 met with great success, so a new themed attraction based on the popular Disney/Pixar film franchise would likely do just as well.
Additional plans include replacing the current Star Tours attraction with the updated Star Tours 2: The Adventure Continues. In 2013, Disneyland Paris will be the only theme park that still has the original attraction; all other Disney parks have updated the famous ride. Disneyland Paris will also be adding a new meet-and-greet location dubbed Meet Mickey, as well as the World of Disney store in Disney Village.
Stay tuned for more details on these exciting expansion plans as the months progress!
