Soarin’ into the future

Tuesday, 18th July 2006 at 17:18

The rumours about the popular Soarin' attraction from the US resorts making its way to paris grow ever stronger... The final article in Peter Bell's three-park series about the past and also probable future of Walt Disney Studios Park is now available at MiceAge.com.,

In addition to describing in detail a map created in 2003 by Imagineer Peter McGraph to show a direction the Studios could take (including two of Disneyland Park’s recent additions), Bell lays out his own (very possible) beliefs about the future direction of the park…

This rumoured future plan includes the following:
2008: Studio Tram Tour station move, route alteration and new sets. New central plaza on old station spot.
2008/09: Expansion of Toon Studio
2009/10: Soarin’ Over The World
2012: New boulevard leading from plaza, with signature attraction at the end.

Almost all of this expansion relies on next year – 2007 – being a huge success for the resort, and with the importance Disneyland Resort Paris is already placing on its 15th Anniversary celebrations, it seems they know this all too well. Should the year produce sufficiant attendance figures, though, Bell believes this timeline to provide an accurate view of the bright future of our Studios.

    Where would they put it? I think that it would be god if they could expand Disneyland Paris and build a 3rd park

  • If they ever decide to build a Soarin’ ride at DLP that would be fabulous. It is my favourite ride in WDW. Another park with Epcot type rides would be brilliant. There is plenty of land available to build on. However, I still think the Studios could do with a ride for everyone, like the Great Movie Ride.
