By By David Bienenstock Comcast, The Walt Disney Company, and Disney Parks & Resorts have opened the doors of Walt Disney World to more than 10 million guests.
The Walt Disney Parks, Resort and the Hollywood Studios are now available to guests who qualify, while the theme parks in Anaheim, Hollywood, and Epcot are opening later this year.
The Walt Hollywood Studios is also set to open in 2021.
In 2019, Comcast will be able to offer two of the theme park properties.
The first is the Disneyland Resort, which will open in 2020.
The second is the Epcot Land of Adventure.
The Comcast deal is a significant milestone in Comcast’s ambitious plan to create a new Disney-branded network of theme parks, hotels, restaurants and other attractions across America.
The company’s plan is to build on the success of Disney’s Disneyland Resort and Epitome in Anaheim and Hollywood.
Disney has been making significant inroads in the theme-park business with a series of themed-land expansions in recent years.
It announced in September 2019 that it will build an all-new ride-park and resort complex in the Hollywood Hills, along with a new Star Wars attraction.
Disney also announced plans for a new Walt Disney Studios theme park in 2019.
The new deal between Comcast and Disney is a major milestone in the company’s plans to expand its theme-parks, hotels and other entertainment properties across the United States.
The deal was first reported by The Wall Street Journal.
“Comcast has always valued its customers, and we believe that this agreement will ensure that the theme experience at our Disneyland Resort continues to be top-notch,” Disney CEO Bob Iger said in a statement.
“Comcast’s partnership with Disney will give us the flexibility to expand our theme park experience and bring the same quality of entertainment to guests at Disney’s other properties across America.”
