The Anaheim City Council unanimously approved Disneyland’s multibillion-dollar expansion plan early Wednesday, the Los Angeles Times reported. The 7-0 vote enables the theme park to build new attractions, shops and restaurants within its current properties while allocating millions for local projects. 

Known as DisneylandForward, the plan will give Disney the flexibility to redesign the resort, including Disneyland, California Adventure Park and the Downtown Disney business district into what Disney global development VP Rachel Alde called a more “immersive” experience. 

The council’s action will lead to a series of amendments to zoning rules that will allow the entertainment giant to add new attractions alongside hotels on the west side of Disneyland Drive and rides and new shopping, dining and entertainment to the southeast on the Toy Story Parking Area at Katella Avenue and Harbor Boulevard. The park will not expand outside its current 100-acre footprint in Anaheim, according to the plan.
