An analysis of some apparently credible leaks from Disney Central Plaza.

Big things to note: Each land looks initially to only contain a single ride with two big e-tickets (Frozen and Star Wars battle escape) alongside some flat rides and what's hopefully a better retheme than the Incredicoaster for the Rock n Rollercoaster. Looks like there's a large amount of expansion space and they've drawn up a bunch of potential plans for adding rides to the new lands or expanding them based on popularity.

It's good to know that this expansion looks to be a long term deal and not the "build and forget" approach that caused the park to get into the mess of a ~2 years ago.

New Chaparral Theatre Plans Released

Image

Plans for a new theatre which will be built on the location of the former Chaparral Theatre in the Frontierland area of the park have been released. The new theatre will be more enclosed than it's predecessor, and the new plans give a glimpse of what the new exterior of the theatre will look like once completed. The theatre should be completed for the summer of 2019 when it will host a production of The Lion King.

Disneyland Paris have released a new concept image for the upcoming Marvel area due to be constructed within the Disney Studios Park. The image and accompanying press release confirms a number of new details about the new area, including a new Spiderman attraction which will replace the Armegeddon attraction. Also confirmed to feature in the new area are Dr Strange, and Pym Technologies - which Marvel fans will recognise as being from Ant Man and The Wasp. These will join the already announced 're-imagining' of Rock 'n' roller Coaster to Iron Man.

The Marvel area will be the first part of a 2 billion Euro expansion plan which will also see Frozen and Star Wars areas added to the Studios park.

Weird how vague they are for everything except for the Rock and Rollercoaster. That does extremely similar to the Spiderman ride being built in California Adventure with the Spiderman Symbol being oddly disguised, not sure why they're seemingly avoiding announcing rides. Trying to trickle out a stream of news or will the Marvel Land be multiple phases?

Guessing Ant Man and Doctor Strange are going to be two separate shows, one in the stunt show theatre and the other where the previous Marvel show is (hopefully they put a bit more work than with that one). Neither of those properties seem to lend themselves to an outdoor stunt show so it'll be interesting to see what they are.

Planning documents have been found for the Spider-man ride.

As the rumours suggested it's a shooter ride, disappointingly it's a basic Midway Mania clone spent entirely in front of screens. You can't help be disappointed that a major new ride at  both Disney Studios and California Adventure using one of the best Marvel IPs doesn't appear to be having a huge amount of effort being put into it.

Whilst I love Midway Mania and Phantasialand's Maus Au Chocolat, it's a bit of a shame that's what they're doing with it.

I think it'll be good for Disneyland Paris, but I suspect it won't be a patch on Universal's Spiderman ride.

I think, in the case of Walt Disney Studios Paris, it is a filler attraction replacing another filler attraction. So it does make sense. I suspect one of the issues could have been lack of space for anything more elaborate. Over at California Adventure though, if this does turn out to be the same ride as in Paris, that means you have essentially two of the same (or very similar) ride experiences in the same park, which is a bit strange. But we all know what Disney’s attitude to new additions at DCA has been like in recent years so perhaps it’s not that surprising.

Yeah, in California Adventure it's literally around the corner from Midway Mania, could easily be a The Fast and the Furious level flop there.

DLP doesn't have Midway Mania so it's not as bad there. It's just a shame when you see stuff like Popcorns Revenge done at parks with a fraction of the budget but done so much more creatively.

I hadn't fully appreciated the exact same ride was also going into California Adventure. :O

The only thing I can think is that with Midway Mania being very popular at California Adventure, but without the space to expand it like in Hollywood Studios, they've essentially done the expansion by putting it elsewhere in the park with a different theme. Still not particularly great use of the space at that park though. It's possible the interaction system may be different to Midway Mania as it's only saving grace, perhaps more like that of Ninjago.

Maybe this should have just been a Paris exclusive...

The press releases about the ride hint you're testing webslingers so it could definitely have some unique shooting motion/mechanism. Probably won't revolve around the classic webshooting gesture as that's likely too tricky to perform for guests and hard to detect.
