Disneyland Paris $2 Billion Expansion to Include Marvel, Star Wars, and Frozen Lands

Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger has built a name for himself as an acquisitions guy, pulling Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm under the Disney umbrella during his tenure. But he’s also concentrated on expanding the footprint of Disney theme parks outside the United States. Shanghai Disney has been his multi-billion dollar baby from the beginning, and now he’s dropping more than $2 billion into a huge multi-year Disneyland Paris resort expansion that will include Marvel, Star Wars, and Frozen lands.
Iger announced details of the Disneyland Paris expansion earlier today, revealing that the company will spend two billion Euro (nearly 2.5 billion dollars) to transform the current Disney park, adding three major new areas, new attractions, and live entertainment experiences. A new lake is also being added as a central point that connects all three of the new areas (you can see it in the concept art above).
“We’re very excited about the future of Disneyland Paris and continue to invest in its long-term success,” Iger said. “The resort is already the leading tourist destination in Europe, and the transformative expansion we announced today will add even more of our beloved characters and unparalleled storytelling to create new lands, attractions and entertainment that further elevate the guest experience and drive new opportunities for tourism in this dynamic region.”
