In case you missed it, there’s a lot happening at Disney at the moment. If Star Wars and Toy Story invading The Happiest Place on Earth wasn’t enough, Disney Parks today announced that a Marvel-themed land is coming to Disneyland in 2020.
This. Is. Not. A. Drill.[media_embed]https://youtu.be/WcSpLJzcu1I[/media_embed]
The news – which came at the delight of comic book fans from across the globe – is huge for the parks. Here’s what we know so far.
The super-charged area will comprise experiences themed around The Avengers and everyone’s favourite friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man, in addition to the Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout! ride that replaced the park’s Tower of Terror last year.
Making space for the new land unfortunately means saying goodbye to an old one. So The Avengers attraction will replace A Bug’s Land, based on Pixar’s A Bug’s Life. It will close later this year, so get your final rides in before it disappears!
As part of the multi-year expansion announced currently underway at Disneyland Paris, the new Marvel-themed area at Walt Disney Studios Park will include reimagined attractions where riders team up with Iron Man and their favourite Avengers on a hyper-kinetic adventure.
Your fave heroes will also be taking to the stage for a brand new live-action production featuring cutting-edge special effects and spectacular projections.
Expansions are also underway at Hong Kong Disneyland, including a new area dedicated to Ant-Man and The Wasp. It’s set to accompany the Iron Man Experience, which opened in 2017 and is already the park’s most popular attraction.
Can’t contain your excitement? Us either. See you in 2020, Disneyland.
