Disney Mars: A New Frontier in Theme Park Experience

New Disney Parks coming to Mars

Disney Parks has always been about expansion. Disneyland opened in 1955 and was the first Disney park ever. Disney World later opened in 1971. Since then, Disney has opened parks in Paris, Tokyo, Shanghai, and Hong Kong. They are now going for their most ambitious project yet. We just received insider information about Disney Mars, a new theme park Disney is planning to open on the red planet Mars.

Life on Mars continues to be top of mind for people. What initially started out as a Sci-fi idea that would never happen, is now within reach. Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX and Twitter, has the goal of getting people on Mars by 2026, with full colonization by 2050. The SpaceX Mars Program is set on the idea of getting people to Mars in the next 10 years. We just learned part of their Mars colonization includes a Disney Theme Park.

This new project by Disney is fittingly named Disney Mars. This is breaking Disney news and we are the first source to have this information, so make sure you read on for all of the details on project Disney Mars!

What is the Disney Mars Project?

We just learned that Disney and SpaceX are actively planning a new Disney theme park for Mars. This theme park will be much like Disney World or Disneyland but will be located on Mars. Much like all Disney parks, there will be rides that are the same as other parks as well as rides that are unique to Disney Mars. This makes the location not only desirable for guests but keeps the Disney Parks fresh and unique.

For now, Disney is only actively planning for one new theme park on Mars. There are conversations about opening more theme parks on Mars, however, they plan to start with one park, as they did on Earth with Disneyland. This will allow Disney to test and understand the market before building multiple parks. This is a great way to mitigate risk for Disney.

When Will This new Disney Park Open?

As one might expect, building a theme park on Mars is no simple task. It requires another level of engineering. Disney Imagineers are experts at building theme parks on Earth, but Mars has different factors in play, with the main one being gravity. The Imagineers must think differently about the attractions being built in terms of speed, velocity, and other mathematical functions. We aren’t expecting Disney to build a roller coaster that jumps the track as they might do on Earth. You can read that story here.

The other issue at stake is no one lives on Mars yet, nor have there been humans on Mars. Disney can’t build a theme park yet on Mars for a few reasons. First off, there’s no one to build it. Second, if it is built, there is no one there to patronize the Disney Mars theme park. Because of these factors, Disney’s opening goal for the Mars theme park is by 2050. This will fluctuate based on how fast Mars colonization actually happens.

Additional Details on Disney Mars

While this new Disney Mars project was just recently leaked to us, we already know some initial details about it. First off, Disney has already claimed land on Mars to build their theme park. Currently, Mars doesn’t have a governing body, so the land is free to claim for now. This is a huge advantage for Disney. Because of this, Disney has already claimed enough land for four theme parks across Mars, but as noted above, they are only actively planning the first theme park.

The Mars theme park will have multiple parks. It will be a complex like Disney World. Disney has staked out enough land to build multiple parks, hotels, a shopping area, and more. They learned their lesson from Disneyland that more land is better. Disney has found the most success with the Disney World model and will follow it for Disney Mars.

We also know a Magic Kingdom-type park will exist on Mars. The official name is TBD, but it will be very similar to Disneyland Park and The Magic Kingdom. Guests will enter Main Street USA. The castle at the hub will be Cinderella Castle. There will also be many lands like Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, Frontierland, Liberty Square, and Adventureland. However, they may be themed more fitting to Mars culture as it develops.

Our internal source also hinted at a few rides coming to Disney Mars. So far we know Splash Mountain will make an appearance as is on Mars. This is because Song of The South isn’t as controversial on Mars. We also know Earth Mountain will be a new ride in Disney Mars. This is a twist on Space Mountain (which the lights remain on after the serious injury we reported here), where you take an adventure through Earth instead of Space since you are already in Space. 

Lastly, Mission to Earth will be located in Tomorrowland. This will be a retheme of the popular Mission to Mars ride, which existed in Disney World in the 1970s. There will be far more attractions at Disney Mars, however, those are the ones that we were given information on from our internal source.
