The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Euro Disney SCA, the French company that operates Disneyland Paris, sought and received permission from the French government to expand the resort, including a third theme park and new living accommodations.
According to the Journal, Euro Disney SCA will today amend its founding agreement to increase the amount of owned land from 4,800 acres to 5,508 acres, providing enough room for a new theme park along with new housing developments and a new vacation village called Les Villages Nature de Val d’Europe.
No additional details have been revealed at this time regarding the theme of the possible third gate and Disney has not commented specifically on whether a new theme park is in development for Disneyland Paris.
Euro Disney SCA is 40% owned by The Walt Disney Company.
Update: See the comments below for further clarification on what the founding agreement amendment means for Disneyland Paris (i.e. not necessarily a third theme park).
