Disney/Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War will unite an impressive number of superheroes on display for the first time, but even that sizable cast will pale in comparison when thousands of superhero fans descend on a trio of new Marvel-themed parks coming to Disneyland locations. (Apologies to Disneyworld fans but Disney does not have Marvel rights in parks east of the Mississippi River in the U.S.; those belong to Universal and their Orlando-based Islands of Adventure.)
As Marvel reports, highly anticipated new experiences at Disneyland Resort, Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland will soon invite guests to become part of a bigger universe filled with epic heroes and adventures, and today they shared a sneak peek. Developed in partnership with Marvel Studios and Marvel Themed Entertainment, these three new areas will champion the next generation of heroes.
Watch the teaser video below for a look and read below for more info and early artwork:
At Disneyland Resort, the new Super Hero-themed land will begin recruiting guests in 2020, with even more new experiences to follow. The Guardians of the Galaxy will be joined by Spider-Man and the Avengers in what will become a completely immersive Super Hero universe, furthering the evolution of Disney California Adventure park. This new land will be anchored by the popular Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!, in the adjacent space that is currently occupied by “a bug’s land.” “It’s Tough to Be a Bug” closed March 19 to make way for this new heroic experience; the rest of the land will close in late summer.
As part of the transformative multi-year expansion announced for Disneyland Paris, the new Marvel-themed area at Walt Disney Studios Park will include a reimagined attraction where riders will team up with Iron Man and their favorite Avengers on a hyper-kinetic adventure in 2020. This will follow an epic experience launching this summer, when Disneyland Paris hosts Marvel Summer of Super Heroes from June 10 to September 30. Favorite heroes will take the stage for a brand new, live-action super-production featuring cutting-edge special effects and spectacular projections.
Multi-year expansion plans are also underway at Hong Kong Disneyland, including a new themed area that will include an exciting attraction where guests team up with Ant-Man and The Wasp. This new attraction will join the Iron Man Experience, which opened in 2017 and is already the most popular attraction at the resort.
