Plans for a huge new theme park in London, dubbed the 'UK Disneyworld' have reached the public consultation stage, it has been announced.

This means the gigantic theme park is one step closer to becoming a reality, with aims for 'The London Resort' to open in 2024.

Plans for the park look seriously epic. Not only will it be the biggest European theme park to be built since Disneyland Paris, which opened its doors in 1992, but it will also be jam packed with rides, attractions and immersive experiences.

And when we say big, we mean *big*. The park, set to be located on the Swanscombe Peninsula near Dartford, Kent, will be 535 acres - equivalent to Wembley Stadium 136 times over.

After signing a deal with Paramount Studios, the rides are expected to be based on BBC and ITV shows as well as Paramount films (responsible for the likes of Mission Impossible, The Wold of Wall Street, A Quiet Place and Paranormal Activity).

Could we be in for a Killing Eve themed ride, perhaps?!

So, it sounds amazing - but what will it look like?

Well, there'll be seven zones - The Jungle, The Woods, The Kingdom, The Studio, The Isles, Starport and the High Street.

Each zone is themed, with the High Street boasting a grand plaza with a Las Vegas vibe, leading to a water park, restaurants, shops, a convention centre and a Radisson Blu hotel.

In The Studios, visitors will be able to watch and learn about their favourite big-screen Paramount blockbusters and there's even a 2,000 seat theatre.

Meanwhile, in The Woods, guests can expect an enchanted world filled with fairy tale themes and characters from classic bedtime stories.

Head over the The Kingdom for a mystical experience filled with legend and sorcery. There'll be castles, dragons and England will be portrayed as "a dark and ancient land, a place of threatening and imposing castles and mystical Arthurian legends".

Over on The Isles, expect "giant creatures and mythical beasts" while in The Jungle visitors will venture into ancient ruins surrounded by vast, leafy treetops.

Last but not least, Starport is one for the sci-fi fans, with an intergalactic theme, alien creatures and futuristic rides.

Importantly, The London Resort will be committed to green energy, partnering with EDF Energy and aiming to produce the lowest carbon footprint of any theme park in the world.

The initial plan is for the resort to consist of two parks, one opening in 2024 and the next in 2029.

PY Gerbeau, chief executive of London Resort Company Holdings said: "This is a significant step in transforming an amazing and ambitious dream into reality.

"We obviously can't hold a public consultation in the normal way - but we will make sure we reach out to local residents and businesses as well as the wider community and stakeholders.

"We are talking to Government about how we will be using digital technology, websites, video conferences and online Question and Answer Sessions."

We are *so* buzzing for this - just four years to wait guys!
