A Disneyland spokeswoman Wednesday dashed fans’ hopes that the acquisition of property near the Anaheim theme park means new attractions are in the works.
Word of the real estate purchases had sparked much speculation among the park’s fans about potential new attractions related to “Star Wars” and Marvel Superheroes.
“With the resort’s continued growth resulting in additional (employees) and a record number of guests, this property will help to support additional infrastructure needs, including warehouse and office space and parking,” said Suzi Brown, a spokeswoman for Disneyland and the adjacent California Adventure.
Disney officials want to keep any future attractions within the “existing footprint” of the theme park, Brown said.
Disney bought two office buildings, one at 1585 S. Manchester Ave. and another at 1515 S. Manchester. In June, the company filed a permit to use the 1515 S. Manchester building, which will become vacant in September and encompasses 180,000 square feet, for storage and warehouse space.
Disney officials say profit and attendance records were set in the third quarter of this fiscal year, which they attributed to the park’s 60th anniversary celebration.
