There’s nothing more magical than experiencing all the attractions, entertainment offerings, and much more at Disney Parks.

In the U.S., Disney Park Guests can enjoy two Disney Resorts in Walt Disney World Resort— which includes theme parks Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios– and Disneyland Resort— which includes theme parks Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure– which are absolutely magical.

But, it doesn’t stop there.

Disney also has locations all across the globe in Disneyland Paris, Tokyo Disneyland, Hong Kong Disneyland, and Shanghai Disneyland.

Disney fans were excited when a report from the New Straits Times, indicated that Disney wasn’t done there. Inside the Magic reported on the development, but it has since been proven to be fake news.

The original report, which can be read below, has since been retracted and deleted by the reporter. On social media, the reporter indicated that Disney confirmed that this was not in the plans and that their sources were incorrect, at least for the time being.

“A Disneyland theme park and Disney City will be built on 80.9ha of land in Jasin, here, by the year 2027.

It is set to be the biggest such theme park in Southeast Asia.

State Heritage and Culture Committee chairman Datuk Muhammad Jailani Khamis proudly announced that the development of the theme park will be the first in Asean, coming after the ones in China, Europe and Japan.

“After more than 20 years, we will have our very own new theme park and even though it might not be so large I feel that it will be more than enough to live up to the Disneyland name which is an achievement and feat in itself to be brought to our shores.

“The theme park will improve and further add to our goal to achieve the target of 20 million tourists in a span of just three years and return to the original landmark of 18.7 million tourists that we manage to attract back in 2019.

It has taken almost five years for TRON Lightcycle/RUN to be constructed at Magic Kingdom, and the attraction is still not open to the public just yet. There have been numerous other attractions that have taken time, as well, so it would likely take much longer than less than five years to construct a theme park.

There have been many rumors about Disney opening a fifth gate at Disney World over the last decade, but that has not come to fruition at this point. Many fans have noted they believe a fight gate would cut down on problems of crowding, but Disney has not released any plans for a massive expansion of the sort at this time.
