Back in February of 2018, Disney Chairman and CEO Robert A. Iger announced plans for a two billion euro, multi-year expansion for Disneyland Paris alongside French President Emmanuel Macron at the Palais de l’Elysée in Paris. Now, according to an article by Forbes and Disneyland Paris Bon Plans, it appears that an extensive renovation and expansion plan is also in the works for the Disney Village in Disneyland Paris.
The entire shopping, dining, and entertainment complex will be undergoing a full-on redesign as part of the expansion in hopes of improving on overall guest experience as well as creating new opportunities within the region.
According to Euro Disney S.C.A. Vice President, Real Estate and Tourism Development, Francis Borezée, “We have renewed the number of attractions in the parks, and the next step will be to renew the Disney Village.” A new convention center might also be in the plans.
Planet Hollywood owner Robert Earl stated about the expansion: “There is a plan to renovate the restaurant in Paris, but Disney is evaluating what they are doing first. We are discussing with them about Planet Hollywood there, but corporate in California haven’t yet decided.”
As part of the redesign, however, the legendary rodeo dinner show, “Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show… with Mickey & Friends!” would be taken over by another Disney franchise. (For a full video of this amazing live show, check out this video by our friends over at MouseSteps.) Exactly what franchise will replace the classic show is still unknown.
The timelines for the project have yet to be announced.
