Walt Disney Co. has begun moving forward after being closed for a year with plans to upgrade and renovate their resort in Anaheim with new rides, shops, and restaurants within its existing 490-acre property.

The plan, title “Disneyland Forward” announced Thursday, March 25 and according to Disney officials, it’s too early to disclose costs of construction but by 2023, the detailed plans for approval will be presented to Anaheim City Council. 

“Guests need and want more,” said Jeanette Lomboy, Disney portfolio executive at Walt Disney Imagineering. “In order to give guests what they want, we need more flexibility in Anaheim.”
