Disneyland Resort Expansion Plans Show Marvel Black Panther Theme Park Land

The other day, it was announced that Disneyland has unveiled plans for a theme park expansion project along with possible new retail stores, hotels, and parking. In those plans, the often fan-requested theme park recreation of Wakanda from Marvel’s Black Panther seems to be present.

Of course, this is just concept art labeled “for illustrative purposes only” and a lot can change between now and when/if Anaheim provides approval for the expansion. But this would be very cool if it happens, and the possibility certainly exists.. The thing that gets me is Disney saying that this isn’t a third gate — so would any attractions be separately ticketed (ie. will they be bringing back A-E tickets for these attractions, or just charge a fee to ride)?
