Wakanda was mentioned by D’Amaro as a possible inclusion for further park expansion
Marvel fans may soon be able to walk in the path of the Black Panther and see the home of one of the largest Vibranium stores on Earth. Disney Parks Chairman Josh D’Amaro recently indicated Wakanda is being considered for inclusion in future park expansion plans.
The Walt Disney Company recently announced plans to “accelerate and expand investment in its Parks, Experiences, and Products segment to nearly double capital expenditures over the course of approximately 10 years to roughly $60 billion, including by investing in expanding and enhancing domestic and international parks and cruise line capacity.”
Further in the same announcement, D’Amaro noted “Frozen, one of the most successful and popular animated franchises of all time, could have a presence at the Disneyland Resort. Wakanda has yet to be brought to life. The world of Coco is just waiting to be explored. There’s a lot of storytelling opportunity.”
The specific mention of Wakanda indicates this is an expansion idea that Disney is considering. Note Wakanda is the only possible expansion mentioned by D’Amaro that has not already been discussed, with Frozen-themed areas already existing in several Disney parks and Coco previously mentioned for inclusion in the refresh of DinoLand U.S.A. at Disney’s Animal Kingdom along with a presence in Disneyland Paris.
