Disneyland Expansion Rumors - Star Wars and Marvel Attractions Coming?

Disneyland is getting ready to make a big move and amp up their game. The company has purchased more land and filed for permits, causing Disney fans to go into overdrive with curiosity. The power of deduction and reasoning would point to a Disneyland expansion. A billion dollar expansion.

Over the past few years, Disney has been making changes and big-ticket purchases. The company attempted to nab rights to Harry Potter, but J.K. Rowling wisely gave the project to Universal who has done an outstanding job of creating a Wizarding World true to Rowling’s work. The failure to cash in on Potter led to Disney acquiring rights for Star Wars and Marvel. Disney has also purchased three parcels of land in Anaheim, California. Do the two go to together in park expansion that will encompass some Star Wars world or Marvel superhero area to rival that of Universal’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter?

Suzi Brown, a spokesperson for Disneyland dashed that question with a statement to Yahoo claiming, “With the resort’s continued growth resulting in additional cast members and a record number of guests, this property will help to support additional infrastructure needs, including warehouse and office space and parking.

Don’t give up on a Star Wars area just yet. The new parcels may be used for office space and parking, but that could mean it frees up areas currently being used for the behind-the-magic operation. Moving the office space will also free up useable space within the park…which could be used for anything…like new attractions and rides.

Thanks to the Anaheim City Council, construction of of the inevitable, but not yet officially confirmed, Disneyland expansion must begin not later than 2017. The project must then be finished within 7 years.

    My nephew is a Star Wars buff so he is going to flip when he finds out about this. I’m going to have to suggest a trip out there with all the kids.

    I don’t know – I’ve been there and it’s pretty tight quarters. I don’t know where they would fit it.

    Never been to Disneyland so I actaully am really surprised they don’t already have a marvel and star wars attraction there. I would have thought they already did! Learn something new everyday

    I have never actually been to Disneyland! I think it would be cool if they did something with Marvel.

    I haven’t been to Disney before either but the lucky people who get to experience marvel are going to have a great time. My husband is a comic book geek

    Sounds really cool! I am surprised that Disney doesn’t already have those

    Good for Disneyland. I know they have to compete with Disney World for visitors and I think they always get the short end of the stick. Hopefully this will help them draw more visitors.

    That would be fun if it’s true. We are great fans of Star Wars and we will definitely look forward to this.

  13. Ann Bacciaglia says

    We are huge Star Wars fans. I am excited to see what Disney is going to do for rides. I am excited for the next movie to come out.

  14. Paula Schuck says

    This expansion is going to be great. I am excited to see hoe they make the rides for Star Wars. I will definitely go and check it out when they are done.

  15. Lesley says

    They are taking out Autotopia and putting in a whole Star Wars land. Should be cool, but its sad we’ll lose Autotopia because that’s been around forever. I love that Disneyland is always evolving the park though.

  16. Melissa Vera says

    I can see how Star Wars and Marvel would fit easily into the Disney landscape. Plus it would be a great draw for Star Wars and Marvel fans.

  17. Lisa Rios says

    Disneyland is full of fun & as a family we have always loved every part of it. The expansion rumor sounds wonderful as we could witness more adventures & fun all around. Fans of Star Wars are going to be thrilled for sure.
