The Olympic Game are the event the most followed in the world – even more than the Football / Soccer World Cup, and, for the first time in history, the next three Olympic Games will happen in cities which are also Disney Parks destinations!
The next Olympic Games, in 2020, will happen in Tokyo and last night Los Angeles announced they have an agreement with the Olympic Games committee to organize the Olympic Games in 2028 in L.A. Which mean that Paris will organize them in 2024 – L.A and Paris being the only two cities which remained on the list for 2024 and 2028. Although it’s not “official” yet for Paris – it will be this September after the big meeting of Olympic committees in Lima, Peru – chances that Paris will host the Games in 2024 are so high that we can count on it.
Now, for the first time in history the next three Olympic Games will happen in cities which are also Disney Parks destinations. As we know, Tokyo, Paris and Los Angeles have Disney theme parks and, as we also know, Olympic Games bring a LOT of visitors from others countries who don’t go only to the Olympic Games but also visit the cities, and the main touristic places. It’s of course a fantastic opportunity for Disneyland Resort, Tokyo Disney Resort and Disneyland Paris to welcome more visitors and no doubt that the parks will be official partners of the Olympic Games.
Disneyland Paris is now owned by the Walt Disney Company and, although it was not announced at the last D23 Expo, will most probably go through important placemaking in the next years and DLP parks better be ready for 2024 as it is a once in a lifetime chance for the resort!
