Disneyland Paris probably offers the biggest disparity between two Disney parks since the company poured more than a billion dollars into upgrading Disney California Adventure six years ago. But the DCA investment proved worthwhile, as California Adventure's attendance has rallied and attractions such as Cars Land and Guardians of the Galaxy have become must-see global destinations for theme park fans.
Can Disney repeat the feat in Paris? It's going to try.
Since taking full control of the company that owns the Disneyland Paris Resort, Disney has announced another multi-billion dollar park refurbishment plan, this time for Walt Disney Studios Park. The resort's second gate, which opened in 2002, will get new Marvel, Frozen and Star Wars-themed lands, starting in 2021. But it's not like the Studios park hasn't gotten some much-needed love in recent years. Its Ratatouille-themed land opened to positive reviews in 2014. (That ride is coming to Epcot's France pavilion in the next few years.) And last year's Mickey and the Magician won our Theme Park Insider Award for the Best New Show of the year.

Are the recent changes enough to make Walt Disney Studios Park a true rival for Europe's most-visited theme park, Disneyland Paris? It's time to vote.Tweet
