Disney is a major company that makes tons of revenue each year. Disney has created shows, movies, concerts, live-action productions, and so forth. With Disney+ currently releasing, it has made billions of dollars. According to Forbes.com, it stated, “This equates to an annual revenue of nearly $3.7 billion when taking into account the average monthly revenue per paid subscriber of $5.63 from its second quarter earnings report. While this is minuscule compared to the company’s total 2019 revenue of $69.5 billion, in a few short years Disney Plus has the potential to be a $30 billion giant.”

While Disney is making billions of dollars off other money incomes, Disney+ has not only become a name in the entertainment industry, but in households across the country.

While Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California plans to expand its property, it requires local government approval to proceed with plans.

According to Themeparkinsider.com, it says, “The proposed DisneylandForward expansion project will not involve Disney acquiring new property in Anaheim. But it will seek approval from the City of Anaheim to allow Disneyland to be more flexible in how it uses its current property. The result could be an expansion of the Disneyland and Disney California Adventure theme parks west of Disneyland Drive onto land currently used as parking lots and the creation of a “Disney town”-style shopping, dining, and hotel district on the site of the current Toy Story parking lot.”

This new, yet to be approved plan, from Disney plans to take place after requirements are met by California’s City Council. 

Disney believes that this current expansion plan will be even easier to access Disneyland Resort in Anaheim to visitors. It will provide more opportunities for parking, and better integration for the park. It will provide thousands of new job opportunities in the local area, and once planning is approved, Disney’s project should take two years to complete.
