The Disneyland Resort filed an application with the city of Anaheim on March 25 to begin the process of updating approvals for future development and expansion!
Although the Disneyland Resort currently has the development approvals to build additional theme park attractions, hotel rooms, entertainment, retail, dining, shopping and parking, the existing development approvals severely limit the ways in which Disney can expand and locate offerings. Therefore, the Disneyland Resort has filed the application to update the existing development approvals to allow for future flexibility and the opportunity for more integrated experiences to be built and located throughout Disneyland Resort properties.
Disneyland is launching "DisneylandForward" the multi-year public planning effort with the City of Anaheim to update the approvals to meet the current and future demand, which in turn will create thousands of new jobs and help support the City's funding for important services such as police, fire, and schools.
Disney specifically states that there are no plans to share at this time and the possibilities for the future are endless. Disney also noted that they are not seeking any public funding in this effort and is not seeking to develop any additional square footage or hotel rooms beyond what is already allowed.
