I always wonderd why they did not built Beaty and the Beasts castle in Disneyland Paris. Seeing as Beaty and the Beast is set in France. But I still love the current castle... As you see on the Little Mermaid dvd they did plan a Mermaid attraction but it never developed.
But now a Fresh new update!
Disney Village Exstension!
As I mentioned before, Disney Village is getting a new extension! *gasp*
Yes the very cold, unfriendly Disney Village is getting a well deserved update, with new shops, bars and more. The current Disney Village is nothing compared to the mega, friendly and cozy Downtown Disney in California or Florida. Works have already started, but are going in full gear at the start of 2008! Current new installments like the Imax theatre are already in place, and more are to follow.
A proposed short scale plan for the extensions can be found below.
As you can see the new areas are next to the Gaumont Cinema and behind the Mcdo. There will be a Wonderful World of Disney shop, an ESPN sports bar, A new Disco and a new train station. There will be more new shops and such that I can not comment on yet at this stage.
Although I can reveal a long term extension plan for Disney Village which looks very promising!
This shows a plan of the proposed development, with some already finished, and some still to be built. It was just in the news last week that the construction on Place Toscane has finished. But that is part of Val' Europe Shopping Centre, and not Disney village, so lets look back on the map.
It shows that the area around MCdo has been changed, and a new street has appeared behind the "Hotel touriste". Also has the extension at the Imax theatre extended even further to connect to this street behind the "Hotel Touriste". And there is a rumor that there are negotiations to built a big Virgin Megastore! To give you an idea of how the Virgin Mergastore looks in Downtown Disney Florida...
I think we can see where those $ 230.000.000, given by Walt Disney Co, is being spend on!
Enjoy this new exciting information!
