Disneyland Proposes $1.9B of Expansion Plans

Disneyland has committed to spend $1.9 billion over the next decade as part of a long-term planning proposal presented to the city of Anaheim, reported the Orange County Register. The details of the proposed DisneylandForward development agreement between Disney and the city were released on Tuesday during an Anaheim City Council workshop.

The DisneylandForward proposal seeks to update a 1990s Anaheim city plan to allow for a mix of theme park, hotel, retail, dining and entertainment on the eastern and western edges of the Disneyland resort. It entails a commitment of at least $1.9 billion and as much as $2.5 billion.

The long-term planning proposal covering the next four decades cites possible projects based on Black Panther, Coco, Frozen, Zootopia, Tangled, Peter Pan, Toy Story and Tron as the types of lands and attractions Anaheim is missing out on under current city planning and zoning guidelines, the Register reported.

The proposal is scheduled for Anaheim Planning Commission hearings in March, with a vote by the Anaheim City Council in May.
