Thanks to a virtual event with Josh D’Amaro, chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, and Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, we now know the grand opening date for Avengers Campus, the new immersive themed land coming to the Disneyland Resort.
The land will open to the next generation of Super Heroes on June 4, 2021 at Disney California Adventure. Guests will be able to team up with their favorite Avengers, sling webs with Spider-Man, and become part of a bigger theme park universe.
“We are so excited to soon welcome our guests to Avengers Campus, our first land dedicated to Super Heroes,” said Ken Potrock, president of Disneyland Resort. “Here, our cast members will united to help guests of all ages find their super powers and create special memories.”
The land will open with a brand-new attraction, Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure, which will take guests on an interactive adventure with Peter Parker himself. Guests will also get to “train” with Black Panther and the Dora Milaje, team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy aboard Mission: BREAKOUT!, encounter other Super Heroes and villains, and even try a few unique provisions at Pym Test Kitchen.
While exploring the new land, guests may find themselves running into Iron Man in his new armor, the Mark 80. Ant-Man and The Wasp will also appear for the first time at Disneyland Resort, and Doctor Strange will train recruits in the ways of the mystic arts at an Ancient Sanctum. Black Widow, Black Panther, Thor, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America and Captain Marvel will also be among those seen in the land.
“When we set out to create these extraordinary Super Hero experiences across the globe, we designed a new Spider-Man attraction for Disney California Adventure park in an immersive land with amazing character experiences,” said Scot Drake, portfolio creative executive for Walt Disney Imagineering. “We also crafted an original story that ties all the experiences together in ways that are authentic to these characters. We worked side-by-side with teams that brought the Avengers films and comics to life to create a place that champions the next generation of heroes.”
“Avengers Campus will be a place where fans and guests can finally step into the universe they love, and stand alongside some of their favorite heroes,” said Dave Bushore, vice president of Franchise Creative & Marketing for Marvel Studios. “The optimism inherent in Avengers Campus captures the diversity, power and teamwork these extraordinary characters possess, and now they come together to unite people from all over the world under one guiding principle: We are stronger together.”
Disneyland Resort will reopen its parks to California residents on April 30. You can learn more about that here.
