The Walt Disney Co. unveiled plans Thursday to expand its existing Southern California theme park with the creation of a dining and hotel district, among other proposed upgrades.
In a statement, the company said it plans to seek approval from Anaheim city leaders to allow Disneyland to "be more flexible" in how it uses its current 500-acre property as part of its Disneyland Forward project, Theme Park Insider reported.
The plan calls for new attractions, shop restaurants in undeveloped areas of the park, though no specifics were mentioned. Disney stressed that it will not ask for public funding to support the project.
"With these updated approvals, Disneyland Resort can continue to invest and be an industry leader in bringing first-of-a-kind offerings to Anaheim, which in turn will create thousands of new jobs and help support Anaheim's funding for important services such as fire, police, and public schools," a Disneyland statement said.
