According to Forbes (https://www.forbes.com/sites/csylt/2018/03/07/exclusive-disney-to-give-magic-touch-to-french-entertainment-complex/#69c561c04bfc), part of that $2.4 billion giant investment announced for the Disneyland Paris resort will include an overhaul of the resort's Disney Village dining / retail complex. While the exact nature of the renonations have yet to be locked in, the article does cover some speculation about some likely candidates.

Disney has now revealed that it is also giving a sprinkle of pixie dust to its 44,000-square-meter Disney Village, the largest entertainment center in greater Paris.
“We have renewed a number of attractions in the parks, so the next step will be to renew the Disney Village,” says Francis Borezée, Euro Disney’s vice president of resort and real estate development.

The huge complex next to the parks was designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry and has an industrial style, which was popular when it opened in the 1990s. It is packed with shops, restaurants and even a rodeo. It could get even bigger.
“We will start with the renovation, but then we have an opportunity to expand where today we have tents which are used for business events,” says Borezée. “If we do that we could develop a new convention center.”
Given that the rodeo has been there since Day 1, it is hard to imagine it staying in a renovation, so one suggestion would be to switch it for a show based on a renowned Disney brand.
