The second theme park to open at the Disneyland Resort Paris, Walt Disney Studios features attractions inspired by the movie, television and music industries. Its attraction line-up is heavy on live and pre-recorded shows, although it does host a major roller coaster (Iron Man Adventure, previously Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster) and a version of the popular Twilight Zone Tower of Terror thrill ride. Despite its name, the park does not include a working film studio, but it is divided into several "lots". These are the Front Lot (which is located at the park’s entrance), Toon Studio, Production Courtyard and the new Marvel Land. The new (2022) Avengers Campus themed land breathes some much-needed life into Walt Disney Studios, Paris and follows that which can already be found at Disney California Adventure, and next year, Hong Kong Disneyland. At Disneyland Paris, the campus is located at the Backlot area, where the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith once lived, but now has a Marvel makeover featuring Iron Man. Disneyland Paris' Avengers Campus also has its very own version of Disney California Adventure's Spider-Man-themed Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure.
A second, studio-themed park was originally planned to open at the Disneyland Paris Resort in 1996. However, the resort's financial problems ended that plan and it was only revived in a scaled-down form in time for Walt Disney Studios to open in 2002. Since then, Disney has continued to expand the park - adding the Toon Studio area in summer 2007, the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror later the same year, Toy Story Playland in 2010 and Ratatouille: L'Aventure Totalement Toquée de Rémy in 2014.
