First announced in 2021, the DisneylandForward project intends to expand Disneyland Resort. Disney’s investment would go toward offerings like attractions, dining, retail, and hotels. Though no specifics have been set in stone, this could include projects based on “Tangled,” “Zootopia,” “Black Panther,” “Coco,” “Frozen,” “Peter Pan,” and “Toy Story.” Disney has also proposed purchasing roads in the Disneyland area to aid in their expansion, along with a new parking structure and pedestrian bridges.

The $30 million set aside for affordable housing would be split in half. The first half would be paid within the first year of DisneylandForward, and the second would paid out in the following five years. it would be up to the city of Anaheim to decide how to use the proposed $8 million allocated to parks.
