News Around Disneyland Paris

For those of you interested in the current happenings at Disneyland Paris, there has been quite a lot of news recently on possible expansions of the resort.

Earlier this week, Euro Disney S.C.A., in which the Walt Disney Company owns a 40% stake, signed a new agreement with the French Government pushing back the deadline on expansion of the resort from 2017 to 2030. The original deal, signed in March 1987, was given on the condition that Disneyland Paris (then Euro Disney) would buy pockets of land in stages and develop this land by 2017. This new extension to the contract will give the resort a longer period to build a possible third park - and it will also give an increase to the property available to develop from 1,943 hectares to 2,230 hectares.

The article over at The Telegraph gives a little more detail to this agreement. It also mentions the rumour of a new project which could be built. Entitled Les Villages Nature de Val d'Europe, it would be the first foray into residential property for Euro Disney, with sustainable development and possible holiday homes.

Interesting, nonetheless. What do you think? Do you think it would be a good idea to introduce holiday homes, or should Disneyland Paris wait and create a third unique theme park?

On a side note, Princess Fee will be in Walt Disney World for the Wine and Dine Half Marathon! If you will be around please let me know (princessfee82[at]gmail[dot]com).
