Disneyland land purchase

In June, we told you that The Walt Disney Company was considering a $1 billion-plus expansion of the Disneyland Resort, which would bring unknown new attractions, a new parking structure with at least 5,000 parking spots and other improvements to the Southern California-based theme parks.

The Disney Company asked the city of Anaheim for an extension on their deal to forgo a tax on theme park admission tickets for another 30 years, which was approved last month by a 3 to 2 vote by the Anaheim City Council. Following the no-tax extension, it has been revealed that Disney has purchased two large pieces of land near the Disneyland park, but what does this mean? Find out if this new Disneyland land purchase could mean new Marvel and Star Wars attractions are being planned for the resort.

Inside The Mind Of Jimmy Fallon

Despite the recent additions of Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley, a lot of the earlier attractions and experiences at Universal Studios Orlando feel dated. And it seems like the Universal Orlando mandate is to replace a lot of the older attractions with new experiences (I hope they decide to refurbish and update E.T. Adventure rather than replace it entirely). The latest rumor is that the Twister…Ride it Out attraction will be replaced with a ride that will take us inside the mind of Jimmy Fallon. So essentially they would be replacing an old attraction based on a 1990’s movie with an experience ride based on a 2015 late night television series. More details, after the jump.

In March, we told you that Japanese video game company Nintendo announced plans to team with Universal Studios to bring their video game properties to life at Universal Parks & Resorts. At the time we joked about the possibility of a real life Nintendo-Land with a side scrolling Mario experience, a Mario Kart racing ride, and more. Well it looks like a Nintendo-Land might not be out of the question as a new rumor suggests that Universal is developing a third park for their Universal Studios Orlando Resort which would have a heavy video game focus, including rides based on Nintendo and Blizzard properties. Find out the details on the Universal video game theme park rumor, after the jump.
