    As far as I am aware, in the last earnings call there have not been any mentioning of an opening dates so far for any expansion in the Disney parks.

    There are a few rumours now crossing each other, lets be very careful with this.

    Firstly, Disneyland is rumoured to see how they can make Galaxy's Edge more integrated with hot IP's like Mandalorian. As they currently don't fit in the timeline of the land.

    Second, the French Government and Disney have indeed an agreement for additional Parks being build with the land they purchased in the 80's, This has nothing to do with the extension of Walt Disney Studios Park. This extension is just a fix Disney is doing and not with the agreement to build a third park by 2037.

    The Lion King Rumour has gone around for the last 10-15 years and never made footfall into the Paris resort, Splash Mountain was rumoured as extension for the back of Frontierland. Plans have been prepared for this, drawings are available on the exact position of it but so far Paris has not gone any further.

    Star Wars will come in a form or shape into the parks, with an immersive land as this IP is hot and has been for the last 20/30 years in Disney parks around the globe. So far no permits have been filed for the construction of Star Wars Galaxy's Edge, only for the Frozen expansion, so it will be a waiting game when we can see this coming as the land should open in 2024. Which will give Imagineering enough time to future proof this land with potential new Star Wars IP's integrated.

    On behalf of the Secretary of State for the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government the proposal is accepted. The park will now be moving into the second phase, Pre-Examination.

    This is not an overlay for the new movie, it is part of the inclusion program to make the Disney rides more up-to-date with currently views on life.

    As stated by Chris Beatty at D23.com


    We are constantly evaluating ways to enhance attractions and experiences in our parks. We want to make sure everybody has the best time—that guests from all over the world can connect with the stories we share and that how we bring those to life are respectful of the diverse world we live in. And when they get off the attraction, they know that we have done our homework because these are the details that matter.

    When you look at the Jungle Cruise, as it is today, there are just a couple of scenes that don’t do that and needed a refresh. But I want to make sure people know we are not changing the whole Jungle Cruise. This is not a re-envisioning of the entire attraction. It’s the Jungle Cruise you know and love, with the skippers still leading the way, and at the same time, we’re addressing the negative depictions of “natives.” So that’s one of the scenes we’re going to go in and change.

    I’m excited about the movie, and having Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt be a part of that film. But these adjustments are really focused on enhancing the existing attraction storyline and addressing some areas that needed refreshing along the way. I’m sure the film is fantastic and we’re very excited about it, but integrating the film into our classic Jungle Cruise is not part of this effort. Does that mean that as Imagineers we won’t put Easter eggs in there? We’ll definitely do that. But we are not adding a major storyline or character from that film.

    That is correct, LEGOLAND Windsor is building this as we speak. It just shows how well people are doing their research.

    No problem, my pleasure.

    That project is currently for 2036, according to the contract with the French Government. They have requested the extension of this so they can focus on updating this park before having a second Walt Disney Studios Park. That would really be a disaster.

    As far as we can understand the current timelines for the expansion, 2024 should see the arrival of Star Wars in the park. Which will be a big thing as the Olympic Games will be in Paris that year. I don't see Disney choosing to miss a huge marketing opportunity to miss such an occasion to attract more guests.

    However, this was all before the world got shutdown. With the current decisions of Disney to postpone the Tron and Guardians of the Galaxy expansions in Walt Disney World. Who knows what they have decided with Paris.

    The rumours for Galaxy's Edge are not so much a re-theme, more stepping away from the current storyline to allow for better integration of popular themes like Grogu, Mando, Bobba Fett. Personally, I don't believe that the park will receive a complete new Star Wars world, it will remain Galaxy's Edge, just already prepared for integration of new Star Wars content.

    Currently K Max Cinema, Juman Kart, swimming pool and Mini Golf are active in the region with ticketing provided by Gantner Ltd.

    There is not yet a word on the following phase of construction which should include the Motor Park. I presume that this is either scrapped or at least on hold.

They have not made it clear yet whether they remain operating as a private supported project or that they will request financial support from the UK government.

    BALPPA however has made it very clear that there are worries, as far back as 12th of October 2015, concerning this project for tourism in the UK. As Paul Kelly stated in his letter to the NSIP " cannibalise the existing tourism industry in London, or become a 'white elephant' that does not deliver the proposed benefits". Which is showing that although the group endorse new competitors, it should not be based on false promises. Don't forgot that the LRCH has proposed a 15 million visitors in their theme park annually, which is the same amount of visitors combined in the theme park industry today in the UK.

    After leaving the EU I think the UK government will grab this opportunity with both hands
    According to the latest meeting of NSIP, they are still "on their way" for submitting their plans to the board. However with 2 weeks left in December to make it within their own timescale. Concerning leaving the EU, the UK has better things to do than building a theme park, like sorting out the aftermath of the departure.

    20th Century Fox World will never be built with this theme, Disney will not allow this and the Genting Group is the proof of this. They literally were months away from opening their Fox World inspired park before the merger of Disney and Fox and Disney pulled the plug on their theme license.

    As CarlySX said, this is dead and will not be coming back to the land of the living.

    Personally I see myself as realistic, this park was suppose to open in 2020 with permit filing in 2016. This hasn't happened until now, and according to your post they have again delayed the timeline and moved it to 2021.

    What makes me more worried is that up to now, no details have been shown on what is going to attract people to the park. If you compare this with relevant projects like Universal's Epic Universe, the filing of official documents show detailed masterplans of what each section of the park is going to be. Up to this point London Resort has shown intentions of what's to come except for concepts with generic themes. This is weird as they claim to have ITV, Paramount and BBC behind them for IP's, so where are the IP inspired concepts?

    They are asking people to sign off on the DCO with no knowledge on what the both parks offering into the mix of all hotels, E-Arena and other side offerings within a resort. Basically they are now selling Disney Village with the hotels without telling what the parks are.

    I would love to have a resort 30 minutes from my home, but let's be realistic, this has been going on since 2015 without any construction as of yet.

    As long as the resort doesn't file for the permit request for building, the project is not going ahead. They have only shown preliminary investigations and intentions up to this point. NSIPs mean nothing more than that the government recognizes that the project has an impact on the country if approved and constructed. As long as London Resorts keep faffing about with their permit request, like they have done over the last five years, they will not start constructing anytime soon. The permit request was suppose to happen in Q4 of this year, however I haven't seen this done as off yet. If they don't do the permit soon, the opening of 2024 might be a very difficult deadline to reach.

    There are in total 12 former Six Flags rides being relocated into the current parks, as mentioned in the financial report of Q1 2020. Suppose to open within the next 12 months. The remaining rides have not yet been announced/constructed.

    We aren't we lucky than that EPCOT is receiving or already received the following things in the coming years:
    Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind
    Remy's Ratatouille Adventure
    New show in China, Canada, Land Pavillion and France
    Moana interactive waterplay area
    PLAY! Pavillion

    Route 66 has been postponed until 2021, and it will have the Dinoco Truck in Catastrophe Canyon as it has already the colour scheme for it on the watertower. Studio D has been constructed and will not open in 2020 and is as well postponed until 2021.

    So far Avangers is still on schedule to open in 2021 with Hotel New York: Art of Marvel in Q2 2021. However I don't believe that DLP will open any major new attraction or hotel unless they can have full press coverage for it. As we have seen with Ratatouille in EPCOT, the ride is finished but they are waiting for the right moment to actually open it with the best media coverage for it.

    It is rumoured that the full price tag announced for the expansion also includes an expansion for Disneyland Parc, most likely Mickey and Minnie's run away railway at the former Beauty and the Beast location. But there is no evidence thus far that supports this. Or the rumoured expansion at Indy.
