The Walt Disney Co. has purchased three parcels of land near its Anaheim resort, sparking speculation that the property would free up land for a future park expansion involving Disney’s Star Wars or Marvel’s superhero characters.

“People have put two and two together and they know that something cool could be coming down the line,” said Robert Niles, a Disney expert and founder of Themeparkinsider.com.
