The plans have been unveiled for the United Kingdom's Disneyland resort that is set to open in 2024 and things are looking very exciting!
Just when we thought Disney couldn't get any better...
Disneyland is one of the most magical places on earth.

But where did it all begin?
via: GettyIn 1955, the first-ever Disneyland opened its doors. Nearly half of the United States' citizens gathered around their black-and-white television sets on July 17th as California's Disneyland was finally unveiled to the public.
Disneyland's revelation was fully broadcasted...And people were able to get a first, yet slightly grainy, look into the theme park.
It was a highly anticipated event...After more than 2 decades of planning and a breakneck year of construction, Walt Disney had transformed a 160-acre orange grove in Anaheim, California, into a $17 million theme park. Here, Disneyland was born.
Thousands of people flocked to the park on its opening day.
The lines went on for miles.Everyone was keen to immediately experience Walt's creation so the lines were long. And this wasn't even at the park - cars were backed up for 7 whole miles along the Santa Ana Freeway.
Visitors were not disappointed...
The Disneyworld Florida resort is perhaps one of the most popular...

Guests don't just visit Disney resorts for the magic, however...
The attractions are endless...
Well, it seems that we're about to be introduced to some brand new attractions...
Okay, so construction won't begin until 2022...

There's a reason why construction will take such a long time...
via: TwitterAccording to the plans, The London Resort will include 4 hotels - boasting 3,500 rooms - as well as dozens of rides, attractions, entertainment, eSports, and conference venues, across 2 huge theme parks.
They've even signed a deal with Paramount...
via: TwitterWhich means the resort will feature rides based on the studio's films, as well as TV shows from British broadcasters BBC and ITV.
The resort is set to be huge.
via: TwitterDescribing the plans earlier this year, the developer behind the scheme said: "When complete, it will be 3 times larger than any other park in the UK. 2 theme parks and a resort water park will be set over 535 acres, the equivalent of 136 Wembley Stadiums."
They went on:
via: Twitter"A bespoke entertainment district, including the provision of 3,500 hotel rooms, will be devoted to a full-suite of hospitality experiences. There will be something for every generation and food and drink for every taste."
But it has been stressed that the rides will be the main focus of the resort.
via: Twitter"But it's the rides and the experiences which will take The London Resort to another level. Brands from across literature, television, music, film and entertainment, are being hand-picked to create unique experiences never previously imagined."
People are keen, to say the least...
