Our British friends have always been anxious to travel to Florida, especially to visit Disney World and other area theme parks. But in a recent article by the Disney Dining Newsletter, it was mentioned that construction of a brand-new theme park resort is underway in the United Kingdom with similar themes of Disney World although the project is not the work of the Walt Disney Company.
This new theme park complex will be called “The London Resort.” It will be built on a 535-acre tract of land located on the Swanscombe Peninsula in North Kent. It will be constructed as a two-park resort, the first park to open in 2024 and the second to open in 2029. Once completed, it will be three times larger than any other United Kingdom theme park. It is being hailed as “the most ambitious attraction in Europe since Disneyland Paris.”
This huge project will also feature three resort hotels, a water park and even a shopping district. After multiple delays and setbacks, the theme park is moving forward with three different British firms and contracts are in place.
Similar to Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, The London Resort will be divided into six different lands. “The Studios” will be a modern-day warehouse district, with action movie features; next enter “The Woods” which features an enchanted area and attractions tied to fairy tales. Beside this The Woods will be “The Kingdom” a world of dragons, King Arthur’s legends, swords, sorcery and more. At “The Isles” visitors will encounter giant creatures and high-tech rides; “The Jungle” will navigate visitors through ancient ruins. The sixth land is still unnamed but will encompass a futuristic twist from the 23rd century, with a zone full of aliens and science fiction themed rides.
Hopefully, we will still have lots of visitors from the UK but this will help those who cannot financially plan those expensive trips to Florida and Disney.
