Marvel Superheroes will be swinging their way into Disneyland soon, as A Bug’s Land will be closed to make way for a new “Marvel Land” in Disney California Adventure.
While a Marvel expansion has been rumored for quite some time, Disney has officially confirmed it this afternoon on the Disney Parks Blog…
At Disneyland Resort, the new Super Hero-themed land will begin recruiting guests in 2020, with even more new experiences to follow.
The Guardians of the Galaxy will be joined by Spider-Man and the Avengers in what will become a completely immersive Super Hero universe, furthering the evolution of Disney California Adventure park.
This new land will be anchored by the popular Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!, in the adjacent space that is currently occupied by “a bug’s land.”
“It’s Tough to Be a Bug” closed March 19 to make way for this new heroic experience; the rest of the land will close in late summer.
Could it be that the Spider-Man attraction is the rumored “suspended ceiling” ride we talked about last year?
In addition to the additions coming to California Adventure, Disney is also planning on re-theming the Rock ‘N Roller Coaster in Disneyland Paris as an Avengers attraction as well as an Ant-Man attraction in Hong Kong.
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.
There have been rumblings, however, that Disney is currently looking for a way to bring the Black Panther to Walt Disney World, but nothing has been announced yet.
Stay tuned for developments on these projects on The Kingdom Insider.
