General Park News - (11/24/14) Tons of new rumors added below about possible future attractions coming to the park. Scroll down and enjoy!
(4/22/14) Spiderman has arrived at the Walt Disney Studios Paris this week, and you can see pictures of him at Disney & More, along with the 80 minute wait just for the privilege. Scroll down a bit more and you can also see more construction pictures from the Ratatouille area as more of the final themeing and details are added into place.
(4/15/14) The latest update to Disney & More shows off an incredible vision designed by “Sam Wilson”, who seems to have a really great idea of just how the Walt Disney Studios Paris park can be expanded and built out, adding dozens of new attractions and lands themed to various film brands like Marvel, Pixar, Tim Burton films, Lucasfilm and Studio Ghibli. While this is only a fan creation, it looks quite professional and would effectively triple the size of this small park and turn it into a true full day destination.
(4/14/14) Walt Disney Studios Paris has announced that Spider-man will soon be appearing to meet guests in the park. An interesting sign of things to come, as I believe this may be the first Marvel character to enter into the Disneyland Paris Resort.
2015 - Nothing is known at this time...
2016 - New Studio 3 Show - Rumor - (1/28/15) Disney & More reports that a new show will go into Studio 3 to replace the park's long running Animagique show sometime in 2016.
2017 - Revised Studio Tram Tour - Rumor - (1/28/15) Disney & More reports that the Studio Tram Tour could be rebuilt with a new station further back to allow for more park expansion, as well as add new additional scenes to the tour, all coming as early as 2017 if approved. If it happens, look for the current tour to close in late August 2016.
Aprox. 2018 - Toy Story Midway Mania / Pixar Studios - Planning – (1/28/15) Disney & More reports that we can look for Toy Story Mania to open at the Walt Disney Studios Paris park by late 2017 or early 2018.
(11/24/14) A long term plan is said to be in the works to expand the Toy Story Playland area with a few new attractions, add a version of the Toy Story Midway Mania interactive dark ride, and transform have a Pixar Studios themed area take over the Animation Courtyard area.
Through 2022 - Marvel Super Heroes - Planning – (11/24/14) Another long term plan for the Studios park is to bring the world of Marvel Comics to life, taking over the park’s current Backlot area. We’ve already seen them bring a Spiderman meet & greet area into the park, and the next phase may be a highly themed dedicated Marvel character Meet & Greet area that could take over the building where the Armageddon attraction currently is. Beyond that, look for Rock ‘n Roller Coaster to possibly be rethemed to tie into to the Marvel Universe somehow and the entire area around this end of the park slowly transformed into an entire Marvel land by approximately 2022 along with a second rumored roller coaster style ride of some kind. Currently it doesn’t seem like there is any plan to bring a copy of the Iron Man ride going into Hong Kong to Paris however as it is deemed too similar to Star Tours 2. (Of course, many people said Universal would never bring Transformers to Orlando with Spiderman next door because they used the same ride system, but they did and both attractions are extremely popular with park guests, so never say never…)
???? - Pandora: The World of Avatar - Rumor - (11/24/14) Rumor has it that if the Avatar themed land going into Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park in Florida works out, Imagineering is looking to possibly add a small version of it to Walt Disney Studios sometime in the future. At this rate however, I wouldn’t look for anything like this to happen until well after the Orlando version has opened and had time to work out any kinks.
