The Disneyland Resort is looking forward to the future! The resort is planning an expansion for the Downtown Disney District and even the possibility of a third theme park!
The Disneyland Forward website states the following:
“We want to bring more Disney investment to Anaheim. However, this simply isn’t possible under current inflexible planning restrictions unless we remove and replace treasured rides and attractions in our Parks today. Without updates, new Disney experiences and placemaking, created from our beloved stories, will likely never find their way to the Disneyland Resort as they have to other parks throughout the world. With DisneylandForward and more flexibility within our existing properties, new lands and adventures like those underway at Tokyo DisneySea and Shanghai Disneyland could inspire new experiences here.”
The Downtown Disney District could become a new kind of Disney entertainment destination with experiences similar to those in Disney Springs at Walt Disney World.
Disney would also invest in transportation, parking, transit and pedestrian safety measures to improve mobility throughout The Anaheim Resort. In the future Disney would like to build a parking destination on the east side of the resort with a pedestrian bridge.
DisneylandForward is a multiyear public planning effort with the City of Anaheim to update existing development approvals that will allow Disney to meaningfully invest in Anaheim for years to come and meet the future demands in entertainment.
There are no officials plans or dates for these new ideas but we are excited about Disney’s plans for the future of Disneyland! You can see more info here.
