After conquering the global box office, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has its sights set on the world of theme parks next: The Avengers and other Marvel characters are coming together for a trio of new experiences at Disney Parks across the world.
At Disneyland Resort, the new themed land will be anchored by the popular Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT! at Disney California Adventure park, which has become the highest-rated attraction at Disneyland Resort since its 2017 opening.
A sneak peek video was released on the blog on Tuesday.
At Disney California Adventure, the new Marvel land will open in 2020, building around the already existing Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT, which opened in 2017 to replace the Hollywood Tower of Terror attraction. This new land will be anchored by the popular Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT!, in the adjacent space that is now occupied by "a bug's land". The 3-D film experience "It's Tough to Be a Bug" shuttered on Monday, with the rest of the area expected to follow suit later this summer.
Disney Parks has announced plans to open new Marvel superhero-themed areas at three of its resorts beginning in 2020.
The new land, which was developed in partnership with Marvel Studios and Marvel Themed Entertainment, is slated start recruiting guests in 2020 with the promise of more to follow.
Fanboys and fangirls will get to revel in three new areas at three different parks. The park will also launch a "Summer of Super Heroes" live-action show from June 10 to September 30. Hong Kong Disneyland's Marvel-themed area will allow visitors to team up with Ant-Man and the Wasp, which will join that resort's Iron Man Experience.
About the only park not getting the Marvel makeover is Walt Disney World in Orlando, where a seemingly iron clad deal made with Universal before Disney's acquisition of Marvel locks most of those characters down.
