just when you thought the mouse house couldn’t possibly top the stellar decade they had in the 2010’s, BAM, WAM!, BOOM! they announce the NEW Avengers Campus!
Beginning summer 2020, yes that’s THIS SUMMER!, Disney’s California Adventure theme park will give its guest the opportunity to interact with their favorite MARVEL super heroes!
A lifelong disney fan, I read rumors of this potential add-on to Disney’s California Adventure theme park on various Disney blogs and web sources for the past few years. However the sheer scope and size of the potential planned expansion was never disclosed in much detail until now. Thanks to a recent detailed post on the official Disney Parks blog, we now have high-res renderings of this new lands coming attractions and themed areas and they look nothing less than amazing!
Pictured above is the planned Avengers “Shield Headquarters” experience which will transport park guests into the world of Tony Stark, Spiderman, Thor, Captain America and Captain Marvel in an all new immersive experience. As you can clearly tell from the visuals above, below, and the recent Star Wars Galaxy’s edge expansion at both Disneyland & Walt Disney World, Disney plans to spare no expense in the development and construction of the new Avengers Campus. So far only one themed ride has been announced and Spiderman fans will be thrilled to know this web slinging experience is aimed right at them.
An all new experience currently in development by Walt Disney Imagineering will house “W.E.B.” The Worldwide Engineering Brigade. This new themed attraction will see guests fight crime alongside Spider-Man in Disney’s first ever ride & attraction featuring their newly signed Marvel Superhero. Park Guests will enter the W.E.B. headquarters and be invited to participate in a W.E.B. open house for inspiring inventors. During this open house experience guests will be asked to test drive a newly developed “Web-Slinger Vehicle”, which Disney states will “allow you to sling webs just like Spider-Man! and give you a taste of what it’s like to have actual superpowers as you help Spider-Man collect Spider-Bots that have run amok”. Simply Brilliant, I can’t wait!

The overall experience around the entire Avengers Campus themed land will be based upon the themed experience of recruiting new shield recruits. Judging from the newly released concept art and renderings its clear the brilliant minds in the Imagineering department at Disney have already envisioned some pretty cool new ways of getting new shield recruits onboard. According to the official Disney Parks Blog Park goers will also be able to experience encounters with Doctor Strange, Ant-Man, Black Panther, Thor and IronMan throughout this entirely new Marvel themed land opening summer 2020 at Disney’s California Adventure Park! – Thanks Walt!
