    I am excited to hear more about WDS. I hope they put toy story mania, and a ride with some audio animatronics and maybe stark expo. I hope my dreams come true and WDS will be a full day park ASAP.

    I'm glad to hear that Dreams is successfull and keeps the guests inside the parks.

    As for WDSP, Disney should start as soon as possible to add rides.

    Did I read that right? They are considering a complete theme change or was that just a little jumbled in translation?

    Not sure I like the sound of the Ratatouille restaurant. Surely they'll have to offer more than just steak and chips with a side salad.

    Still, can't grumble, at least they are finally building things and moving forward.

    Why would they announce a 5 year expansion 2 years in advance? Wouldn't that technically make it a 7 year expansion?

    That's why I'm not entirely convinced about the expansion. A few years ago Disney talked about Hollywood makeover for WDSP and it didn't happen until today.

    This isn't an expansion of the park but only new things or theming. New rides, shops and restaurants are going to come at the Walt Disney Studios from 2014 to 2018 but Disneyland Paris must have the banks' agreement for each attraction, shop or restaurant which is planned, step by step. Banks are supposed to give their agreement because Disneyland Paris has "safety" money from TWDC. Nevertheless one can expect something great but not as huge as in DCA. It's more like what they're doing at Hong Kong Disneyland.

    Toy Story Mania is just a rumor for the moment and Philippe Gas didn't talk about it during the shareholders' meeting, he talked about the Ratatouille area and a possible new 5-star hotel.

    Hong Kong Disneyland is getting a HUGE expansion. 3 lands with more than 5 new attractions incl two new E-tickets a new show and many new places to eat...
    Is that in the line of what you are saying WDS will get? Sorry, but I doubt that.

    Re: Walt Disney Studios Placemaking is now official

    I'd like a Soarin' or a 3D 360 Circlevision tour of France or of Europe.
    It can fit the studio theme because it would be showcasing a creative use of FILM.

    And much must be done to
    beautify this depressingly ugly park. It's the only Disney park I don't like (in fact I hate it) and I've been to all of them except for HK Disneyland & Tokyo Disney Sea.

    @ TimmyTimmyTimmy

    Toy Story Playland (2010, Walt Disney Studios Park) = Toy Story Land (2011, Hong Kong Disneyland)
    Ratatouille area (2014, Walt Disney Studios Park) = +/- Mystic Point (2013, Hong Kong Disneyland)
    Toy Story Mania (2015 ?, Walt Disney Studios Park) = +/- Big Grizzly Mountain (2012, Hong Kong Disneyland). This ride is going to come but no idea of the opening date in France.

    Moreover, Walt Disney Studios park is rumored to receive Marvel Studios (including an Avengers ride) which is a rethemed Backlot, Soarin' and a renewed Studio Tram Tour.

    Do you understand now ?

    The attraction "Studio Tram Tour" was closed today in order to check what to improve in this ride.

    Fultimate, I really, really hope you are right, because WDSP needs all the help it can get. But you have to understand all the scepticism, because DLRP talks for years now to improve WDSP and except for TSPL none of the placemaking projects happened. For me it's also strange to announce such plans now when they are starting to develope other projects after Ratatouille happened. There can't be a financial reason, because I highly doubt ED SCA will make money in the next years. I still think it needs a few more years to leave the red numbers. As long as there is no construction, I have my doubts. I hope you are right and that you will say in a year: "I told you so!!!"

    Most of that is far off in the future and might not happen at all. Looking at DLP´s track record one might think it will never happen.
    Toy Story Land opened last year, this year Grizzly Gulch will open and next year Mystic Point. After that the new Star Wars attraction will open in Hong Kong. The difference between HKDL and WDS in this matter is that HKDL´s expansion will soon be over and a second phase will begin. WDS is just starting to wake up and not much has happend on the construction side. HKDL´s expansion is huge and it is reality. WDS expansion/change is just a plan.

    I personally hope that WDS gets the biggest change that Disney has ever made. But I doubt it... just like I had doubts about Dreams being nothing more than a fountain show with fireworks.

    Disney Dreams is a huge success and is already paid for itself. So will be the Ratatouille ride. And with this money returning back, they'll continue to invest in, let's hope, only great and innovative E-tickets (because 1 E-ticket is better than 10 A-tickets, because E-tickets bring more people to the resort while A-tickets don't).
