Yesterday Disney announced that new Marvel-themed areas will be coming to Disneyland Resort, Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland in the near future.
The new Super Hero-themed land at the Disneyland Resort will begin recruiting guests in 2020. Spider-Man and the Avengers will be joining Guardians of the Galaxy in a completely immersive Super Hero universe in Disney California Adventure. The new land will be anchored by the immensely popular Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!, in the area that is currently occupied by “a bug’s land.” “It’s Tough to Be a Bug” already closed on March 19 and the rest of the land is scheduled to close later this summer.
Disney also announced that 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 Rock ‘n Roller Coaster where riders will team up with Iron Man and their favorite Avengers on a hyper-kinetic adventure in 2020.
Also announced were multi-year expansion plans 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.
It was great to finally get some details about the Marvel-themed land at Disney California Adventure. This area has been hinted at by Disney for a while now, so it was nice to finally get some official “vague details” to hype-up the fanbase.
I for one am very excited about this new area. While there is a portion of the Disney fan community that are upset that in getting this new land means the extermination of “a bugs land,” I am not one of those. The movie “A Bug’s Life” that the area was based on has never been one of my favorite Pixar movies and I’ve not been all that fond of the attractions is this land either. In other words, I’m not all that broken up to see the bugs go away.
If Walt Disney Imagineering can replicate the great work that they were able to do on Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! the area could be amazing. Personally, the year 2020 cannot come soon enough….I am really excited and am already planning on a possible trip for when it opens.
Disney Marvel fans….ASSEMBLE!!!
