The Walt Disney Studios expansion is coming up… As works for the Avengers Campus are almost done, with the opening scheduled for the summer of 2022, Disneyland Paris announced in a release the upcoming works for the expansion, with the start of the Frozen land construction, and especially the upcoming transitory area between the existing and new zones, including a two-hectare lake.
The lake area finally giving good news with a new 250-seat restaurant all along, and a first concept art telling a lot about the spirit of the place. An “Art Nouveau design” providing panoramic and unobstructed views on the lake. And one thing is sure: it will be highly coveted for the nighttime shows planned on this water body. Nighttime shows detailed in a prefectorial decree aiming at allowing the achievement of this project, unveiled several years ago and “planned in association with the new object universes of the park’s expansion”, including “pyrotechnic shows, light sets and water entertainments”.
The release also reads that to access this “buffer” zone, visitors can “walk along a promenade surrounded by lush landscapes; a combination of themed gardens and green walkways”. An “outdoor family attraction” is also planned around the lake, without Disneyland Paris giving details on the ride system or theme. Please also note the restaurant is also a place enabling Disney characters meet and greet.
A new zone expected to be built very soon, after a building permit was filed. One thing seems sure: this new area is to be inaugurated at the same time as the Frozen zone, as Disneyland Paris president Natacha Rafalski explains in an Instagram post: “As our ambitious transformation of Walt Disney Studios Park continues, we just revealed a sneak peek of another area that will enchant guests after the highly-anticipated opening of Avengers Campus this summer!”, she explains.

Same call for Walt Disney Imagineering portfolio executive David Wilson for Disneyland Paris: “following the highly-anticipated opening of Avengers Campus this summer, this project [The Frozen area] and the development of a picturesque lake promenade compose the next chapter of Walt Disney Studios Park’s historic expansion”, he says.
While waiting to discover this new zone, we are looking forward to discovering Avengers Campus!
