DisneylandForward: A Smart Planning Approach Designed to Enable Investment for Decades to Come

DisneylandForward is a blueprint to guide development and growth over the next 40 years. As Disney invests, key improvements will be required to address the Resort's growth and minimize impacts. 

Design to Minimize Potential Project Impacts

  • Locate majority of new development on existing surface parking lots.

  • Create setbacks and landscape buffers from adjacent neighbors.

  • Enhance architectural design program to ensure all visible theme park attractions and buildings are designed with 360-degree architecture.

  • Plan the Eastern Parking Structure and Multimodal Transportation Center to be built on Disney’s east side surface parking lots, balancing future traffic flows between the west and east sides of the Resort and allowing for a new east side hub for Anaheim Regional Transportation (ART) buses, hotel shuttles, guest parking shuttles, cast member parking shuttles, bicycle parking and amenities, rideshare apps drop-off and pick-up, and future transit connectors.

  • Invest in pedestrian bridges to improve traffic flow and pedestrian safety.

  • Promote bicycle travel through the installation of dedicated bike paths and bicycle amenities throughout the Resort.

Employ Latest Technologies and Measures to Reduce and/or Avoid Impacts

  • Implement measures to reduce air emissions and waste, as well as minimize water and energy usage.

  • Continue and enhance Disney’s robust Transportation Demand Management Program to reduce the vehicle trips of our cast members, guests, and contractors.

  • Employ best-in-class measures to reduce, sort and recycle solid waste generated at the Resort with consistent diversion of 30 million pounds of material from landfills annually.

Build Upon Decades of Smart Planning, Infrastructure Investments and Regulations to Create an Improved Anaheim Resort Area

  • Build upon the City’s 1990s transportation plan for the Resort through decades of continued investment in transportation, parking, and roadway infrastructure improvements.

  • Commit to more enhanced, detailed, and stringent design and development standards.

  • Comply with comprehensive regulations regarding height, setbacks, screening, noise management and monitoring to protect our adjacent neighbors.
