Rumors: A talk with a CM- Future plans at DLR after DCA expansion.
So I managed to talk to a CM who was a friend of a friend, that gave me insider news about the future of DLR, although I do not know if I can give further detail about it, I could provide some key points as the CM did not tell me this was suppose to be top-secret. However if this is suppose to be kept secret please delete and close this thread.
First, there is going to be an expansion in Fantasyland (Which is pretty obvious if you consider what is happening to Princess Fantasy Faire). As for detail, this is going to be a smaller scale expansion to its Disney World counterpart that will mostly feature meet & greets with various princesses.
The biggest news the CM told me was the construction of a third theme park to be built for DLR that will ultimately combat WWOHP that will be opening at Universal Studios Hollywood in the future. This third theme park will be very different amoung the other two as it will represent a completely different franchise that is Disney-owned. It will also feature a unique transportation access to travel amoung the DLR (and also not intefere with any street roads) and it will be based off a certain city. The construction of the new gate will involve tearing down certain hotels that Disney bought.
There is no known date as to when this third gate will be opening but it could be a few years later after WWOHP opens at Universal. As for the announcement, it could be sooner or later as the CM told me these were the plans after the expansion at DCA. Nevertheless, this is pretty exciting news to hear!
I wish I could have asked more about what other plans they will do at DCA besides CL and BVS, but I can only imagine the expansion of HL with the left over parking lot that is not used up next to CL.
