At Disney’s recent 2019 D23 Expo, extensive plans and visuals were revealed for the previously announced Marvel-themed lands coming to both Disney California Adventure in Anaheim, California, and Disneyland Paris. And let’s just say that we’re ready to assemble.
At both parks, Avengers Campus will be the hub for the Avengers’ latest recruitment initiatives. Why? Well, they’ve determined that Earth is in desperate need of more heroes, and they need us to help them.
Phase one of the land development will bring the first of two new attractions — a Spider-Man ride that promises to be a family-friendly good time.
Peter Parker is teaming up with other bright young inventors at the Worldwide Engineering Brigade (WEB for short) to develop new technology that gives ordinary people superhero abilities. The attraction lets guests test-drive Parker’s latest invention, a web-slinging vehicle (for those of us who just can’t seem to sling webs like Spidey).
But of course, a little trouble presents itself. Peter is also developing Spider-Bots, which aren’t a problem until they start glitching and multiplying uncontrollably. Now Peter needs riders to help him round them up in the web-slinger.
Saving the world tends to work up an appetite. The Ant-Man-themed Pym Test Kitchen will churn out food and drink for hungry heroes, and it sounds like the chefs will be having some fun shrinking and enlarging the menu items.
Fans can expect to rub shoulders with many of their favorite Marvel characters while wandering the Campus, including Iron Man, Black Widow, Black Panther and the Dora Milaje, Thor and Loki, and the Guardians of the Galaxy. Guests will also get to explore the ruins of a mysterious sanctum and, of course, you can expect to find Dr. Strange lurking nearby.
Phase two of the Avengers Campus build includes a Black Panther ride. While Avengers Headquarters will be one of the land’s impressive focal points, it will also be the place where guests can begin another epic adventure. Board a Quinjet and join the Avengers on a trip to Wakanda that just might involve a serious run-in with a mega-villain. Sign. Us. Up.
Avengers Campus will open on an unspecified date in 2020. In the meantime, visitors can get their Marvel fix at Disney California Adventure by riding Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout!
