Disney Dreams at Disneyland Paris

The low-key Villages Nature looks intriguing. Scheduled to open in mid-2015, the hotel and water-park complex at the Disneyland Paris resort has been designed by Imagineer Joe Rohde, who shepherded the Animal Kingdom theme park at Walt Disney World and Aulani hotel in Hawaii.

And then there's the persistent talk of adding Toy Story Midway Mania at the Studios, updating Star Tours in Discoveryland and finding a place for a Soarin' Over the World at either park. But only time will tell if any of those projects move off the drawing board. Until then, let's see how the rat does first. Disney has found success in the past with rodents.
