An expansion to Worlds of Pixar at Walt Disney Studios Park in Disneyland Paris will replace the current Mickey’s Toontown “Toon Plaza” photo area.
The Pixar corner will still be for photo ops, and concept art suggests there will be character meet and greets. The area is to include references to Pixar films old and new, like the upcoming “Elemental.”
Disneyland Paris also announced today that Fuente del Oro would become Casa de Coco, a “Coco”-inspired restaurant.
Walt Disney Studios Park
Construction has been ongoing for years on a major expansion of the small park, including updates to Production Courtyard and Toon Studio, pre-existing lands at the park’s entrance. They will be refurbished from November 2023 to May 2025, including the update to Studio 1, with a theater zone theme.
The Lake Promenade expansion to Walt Disney Studios Park will be home to the “Tangled Round Ride,” a spinner based on the 2010 animated film about Rapunzel, and will lead guests to the new Arendelle – World of “Frozen” land. There will also be an updated Toy Story Playland entrance, a new English Gardens area, a floor rosette, and a food truck. The multi-functional East Pavilion will be near the “Tangled” ride and across from a new table-service restaurant.
