A 17,000-page report by the city of Anaheim analyzes the proposed expansion.

The proposed expansion, which is known as Disneyland Forward, has been meticulously analyzed in a 17,000 page report from the city of Anaheim. While the report analyzes the expansion’s impact on energy, greenhouse gasses, and noise pollution, it also offers insights into the effort’s water conservation and waste reduction plans. Disney would have to abide by some restrictions placed both during construction and after the expansion is complete, including constructing temporary sound barriers during construction, as well as 12 foot tall noise barriers that would permanents surround the site’s property lines.

The report also gives a peek into Disney’s plans, including installing large pedestrian bridges that would allow visitors to access new areas of the resort, as well as possibly installing new “alternative ride systems” such as Disney Skyliner and the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover to help the flow of pedestrian traffic. The media giant has proposed zoning changes for the areas it already owns around the resort, so it could utilize these areas for additions to its theme park, resort, and dining options. Disney reportedly looks to have their expansion plans approved by the Anaheim City Council by the end of next year.
