Can you believe it’s been almost 80 years since the comics brought Super Heroes such as Captain America, Black Widow and Iron Man into our universe?
Now, 80 years of comics, and 23 interconnected films later, you can encounter the Earth’s Mightiest at Disney Parks around the world. These iconic characters and timeless stories have truly inspired millions, and beginning next year, you’ll be able to experience them like never before!
In case you missed it, we recently announced at D23 Expo details around even more ways you can be recruited and team up with your favorite Super Heroes, including:
Avengers Campus Coming to Both California and Paris
- Both campuses will feature the Worldwide Engineering Brigade – also known as WEB – which will house a new Spider-Man experience, the first Disney ride-through attraction to feature this iconic Super Hero. The attraction gives you a taste of what it’s like to have actual super powers as you sling webs just like Spider-Man and help him collect Spider-Bots that have run amok.
- They will also feature Pym Test Kitchen. Just as Ant-Man and The Wasp use “Pym Particles” to grow and shrink just about anything, Pym Technologies is using the latest innovations to grow and shrink food at this eatery!
- You never know which Super Heroes you may encounter throughout your adventures in Avengers Campus, but Black Widow, Ant-Man and The Wasp, Doctor Strange, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Super Heroes from Wakanda and Asgard, and Iron Man have been known to visit them frequently.
At Disney California Adventure park, you will also be able to assemble with more Avengers than ever before:
- One of the campus’ iconic buildings will be the Avengers Headquarters where you may witness Super Heroes spring into action at a moment’s notice all over the building!
- This attraction, which will open in phase two, will become the future entrance to a brand-new E-Ticket attraction where you will step on board a Quinjet and fly alongside the Avengers in an epic adventure to Wakanda and beyond!
Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel Coming to Disneyland Paris
At Disneyland Paris, you can extend your adventures at Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel, opening next summer. The hotel will celebrate 80 years of Marvel art and artists, with more than 300 curated works of art on display. Rooms will include one-of-a-kind themed suites featuring favorite Super Heroes like Spider-Man, and you can even meet these legends in a dedicated space.
Guardians of the Galaxy coming to Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort
At the World Discovery neighborhood in Epcot, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will feature the first reverse launch into space! This thrilling, family-friendly attraction will feature a never-before-seen storytelling coaster that rotates to focus on the action.
