Hi guys. Disneyland Resort in California gave us a rather surprising reveal today; they’ve revealed that they will be building a third theme park, along with more resort expansions:
Really exciting stuff! I wonder what the 3rd park will be, or what it might entail? There’s not much info at present, but I think more might come within time. In terms of where it’s being built, it’s apparently using old parking space and some of the land that is currently part of Downtown Disney.

On a side note, I believe that this is the first time a new theme park has been added to an existing Disney resort since Walt Disney Studios in 2002, which is interesting!
EDIT: For some reason, the Facebook post isn’t embedding properly; here’s the direct link:

Disney have launched a project website detailing their ambitions for potential expansions.


From the website and this graphic it appears they hope to expand both parks and use the middle of the site for more resort offerings. Not a third park.

Well no, not at all - nothing (no third park, no resort expansion) is being announced or confirmed its just "ideas" that they want to put forward that they might be able to do in future if they are allowed to (local planning/politics/funding etc).

"news" ; notsomuch.
"interesting" - yes, definitely.

One thing I'd like to see - simply because I'm anal like that - is them align all of their bloody park names. :D

I'll let them off having "Walt Disney World" be it's own thing, but why are the Asian parks Hong Kong/Shanghai/Tokyo Disneyland, yet the one in France is Disneyland Paris. In California it's a right mess - just "Disneyland"? Come to think of it, why are the parks in Florida "Walt Disney World - Disney's Hollywood Studios" too. Urgh, burdens.

I propose:
  • Walt Disney World - Animal Kingdom/Epcot/Hollywood Studios/Magic Kingdom
  • Disneyland Paris - Disneyland/Studios
  • Disneyland Hong Kong
  • Disneyland Shanghai
  • Disneyland Tokyo
  • Disneysea Tokyo (I love the name Disneysea, but it does mess the pattern up a bit)
  • Disneyland Los Angeles - Disneyland/California Adventure
That's much better.

It's been a stressful week, okay...
