Walt Disney Studios Park

Walt Disney Studios Park

Disneyland Paris opened its second gate, Walt Disney Studios Park, on March 16, 2002. It remains Disney's least-visited theme park worldwide, though it ranks as the fourth-most visited park in Europe, trailing its older sibling as well as Europa Park and Efteling.

Disney Parks has started a major reconstruction project for Walt Disney Studios Park which will bring two major new themed lands to the park, starting with the Marvel-themed Avengers Campus this summer. For now, the park is dominated by Pixar franchises and a second-generation Twilight Zone Tower of Terror ride.
