One of Disney’s theme parks is getting a name change.

Disney Experiences this morning announced that its Walt Disney Studios Park at Disneyland Paris will be renamed Disney Adventure World when its World of Frozen land opens. The announcement comes on the 32nd anniversary of the opening of the original Disneyland Paris theme park, which debuted April 12, 1992.”Today, we are changing the story of Walt Disney Studios Park, evolving from ‘how it’s done’ soundstages to celebratory theaters and adventures that come to life in immersive worlds,” Imagineer Tom Fitzgerald, WDI’s Chief Storytelling Executive and Senior Creative Executive for Disneyland Paris, said. “These fully realized adventure worlds will become the focus of the park’s new identity and appear as realms that guests discover as they navigate deeper within the park and are invited to participate in adventures inspired by our most beloved stories.”

The new World of Frozen, whose opening date has not been announced, will sit next to Adventure Bay, a 56.75-acre-foot body of water that will be equipped as a future home for entertainment spectaculars in the park, with fountains, music, lights and special effects capabilities.

In addition to World of Frozen, Disney is working on another immersive themed land for the park, but Disney still is not revealing that theme just yet. But the next addition to what for the moment remains Walt Disney Studios Park will debut in just a little over one month. The new Alice & the Queen of Hearts: Back to Wonderland musical stage show will open May 25. Disney is calling the production “an ultra-colorful, pop-rock face-off,” in which two teams – representing Alice and the Queen of Hearts – “go head-to-head in a high-energy showdown, with high-flying acrobats pushing their limits, and two alternative endings decided by the audience.”Later this year, the park’s Avengers Campus will host a new “nighttime activation” on the Worldwide Engineering Brigade. The new projection show will offer a new storyline that features a variety of Marvel characters, including some new to Disneyland Paris.For discounted admission to the parks, please visit our partner’s Disneyland Paris theme park tickets page.And to keep up to date with more theme park news, please sign up for Theme Park Insider’s weekly newsletter.
