  • Westcot in Paris ?!

    Hello everyone
    It's my first post on these boards, so I hope i'm gonna be interesting ^^

    I found out recently evidence that, at one point during the conception of Euro Disney Resort, back in the end of the 80's, WESTCOT was to be the third park for the French property ! (Remember the project for a third park is actually in the convention signed between the French government and Disney)

    I knew Disney, at this time, was waaay over confident about its newest resort but it always stuns me to think about all these amazing expansion plans (it was to open, at the earliest, in 1999 !). Several masterplans show also the creation of a monorail line (Westcot could have opened pretty far from the present theme parks)...

    You can check the article I wrote about Westcot on my website here : http://webcot.free.fr/articles/westcot.htm ; it's mostly about the original project for Anaheim, but I dedicated the last part about the Paris' version, with a concept art (more a sketch than a concept art, to be honest) as well as a plan.

    Did you know about that project ?

    PS : I'm sorry but the article is in French

    Bonne lecture

    Well, welcome to MC, this is in fact my 100th post.

    Very interesting, I would love for a third park, but I would prefer the studios and DL park be worked on first.

      Wow, I can hardly wait to get home and Babel Fish the article so that I can read it.

      By the way, you have a great site! I've been visiting it for a couple of years now.

        The monorail thing is interesting, it would allow for much greater expansion and sounds very DLRP-esque.

          What a shame that they didn't build Westcot first instead of the Studios.

              If the construction of the Disney-MGM Studios Europe had followed the original masterplan, you perhaps wouldn't say the same thing , this second gate was to be muuuuch better and bigger and nicer and whatever you want, than the actual WDSP

              But I understand your point, this version of Westcot (a "deluxe" Westcot as I read somewhere) was incredibly exciting, but nobody knows what "version" was planned for Euro Disney...

              And I guess we'll just never know, from my understanding, this idea was indeed just and idea, a proposition amid others, not something fully developped.
              But I might be wrong
