After the successful launch of their Star Wars: Galaxy Edge area last month, Disneyland have revealed the next stage of their planned expansion at California Adventure, titled Marvel Land. Their first Marvel-themed thrill ride, Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout, has been the parks highest-rated attraction, consistently drawing lines of over 2 hours, so this announcement comes as no surprise.

Construction on Marvel Land has already begun, with the next attraction scheduled to open in July, 2020. The City of Anaheim, where California Adventure is located, recently approved building permits for the construction of a retail area, microbrewery and a meet and greet area for the expansion. Whilst no official details have been released from Disney representatives regarding what type of attractions will be included, the construction site is currently blocked off by walls that read “Stark Industries“.

Based upon the teaser photos that have been released, it looks like The Avengers, Black Panther and Spider-Man will be involved in some capacity. Park Officials have previously stated that Marvel Land will create an “immersive Super Hero universe…creating a place where guests can team up with their favourite Super Heroes like never before”. Further details are expected to be shared at the annual D23 Expo in Anaheim, running from August 23-25, this year.

Marvel Land California is just the start of Disney’s global theme park expansion based upon the Marvel franchise as an indoor Guardians of the Galaxy rollercoaster is planned to open in Disneyworld Florida in 2021. Along with this an Avengers themed rollercoaster will be hitting Disneyland Paris in 2020, with an Ant-Man and the Wasp ride at Hong Kong Disneyland, opening in 2023.

 

Patiently waiting on more deets (low-key sussing out flights).
