While the Happiest Place On Earth still isn’t fully reopened for guests yet, it sounds like Disneyland is planning a third theme park!
According to the OC Register, Disney announced a DisneylandForward plan today during a press conference.
Walt Disney Imagineering Jeanette Lomboy said:
“Because of the current rigid district structure, we just need more flexibility. We’re excited about the possibilities and ready to dream. Believe me, we have no shortage of ideas, content or stories to tell or build.
What we do know today is that guests need and want more. In order to give guests what they want, we need more flexibility here in Anaheim. Guests are demanding immersive integrated experiences that are not singular in their uses. We no longer think of uses as separate. Retail, dining, entertainment, theme parks and hotels are all part of the same experiences in the same place. And we need the space in our lands to create story-rich environments.”
The Immersive Theme Park westside expansion envisions a theme park on the Downtown Disney and Lilo and Stitch parking lots woven amid the Disneyland Hotel and Paradise Pier Hotel.
Before Disney can break ground on any expansions though, the City of Anaheim has to sign off on it.
