Moments ago during the D23 Expo 2019,
Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Bob Chapek revealed more
details about the growing presence of Super Heroes at Disney Parks around the
world. Here’s what was shared:
Campus Coming to California and Paris
As we shared this past Thursday on the Disney
Parks Blog, you can soon suit up alongside your favorite Super Heroes at the
Avengers Campus, beginning in 2020 at Disney California Adventure park and
later at Disneyland Paris. These are campuses set up by the Avengers to recruit
the next generation of Super Heroes.
“In some ways, these new campuses are like the
Avengers themselves: a group of diverse individuals who have teamed up for the
same purpose,” said Scot Drake, Creative Executive, Marvel Global Portfolio,
Walt Disney Imagineering. “This collection of unique addresses—each dedicated
to a different discipline—have been brought together to champion the next
generation of heroes.”
The first key address at the Avengers Campus will be the Worldwide Engineering Brigade – also known as “WEB” – which will house our new Spider-Man experience, the first Disney ride-through attraction to feature this iconic Super Hero.
During an open house at WEB, the aspiring
inventors are excited to invite you for a test drive of their latest invention:
the “Web Slinger” vehicle, which allows you to sling webs just like Spider-Man!
The attraction gives you a taste of what it’s like to have actual super powers
as you help Spider-Man collect Spider-Bots that have run amok.
Avengers Campus 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 will also find heroic encounters
throughout the campus, including Black Widow, Ant-Man and The Wasp, Doctor
Strange, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Super Heroes from Wakanda and Asgard, and
As Super Heroes continue to assemble at both campuses, one of the iconic buildings in the California campus will be the Avengers Headquarters where you may catch a glimpse of the Avengers along its rooftops.
This building, which will open in phase two, will become the future entrance to a brand-new E-Ticket attraction where you will step onboard a Quinjet and fly alongside the Avengers in an epic adventure to Wakanda and beyond! You will team up alongside the Avengers in a battle to save our world against one of the most powerful villains they have ever faced. Imagineers are hard at work conceiving an all-new innovative ride system to put you in the middle of this action.
Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel in 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.
