Long rumored to be happening, this morning it was announced that Disneyland will be indeed getting a larger Marvel heroes themed area. Not only will this change be coming to the California Adventure side at the Anaheim Park, but Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong will also be getting a superhero update.
The Guardians of the Galaxy will be joined by Spider-Man and the Avengers in what will become a completely immersive Superhero universe. This new land will be anchored the popular Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!, with new additions in the adjacent space that is currently occupied by A Bug’s Life land.” “It’s Tough to Be a Bug” closed officially on March 19th (yesterday) to make way for the experience and the rest of the Disney-Pixar themed bug area will close later this year, for good.
Directly from the update via Marvel today:
Disneyland Paris, the new Marvel-themed area at Walt Disney Studios Park will include a reimagined attraction where riders will team up with Iron Man and their favorite Avengers on a hyper-kinetic adventure in 2020. This will follow an epic experience launching this summer, when Disneyland Paris hosts Marvel Summer of Super Heroes from June 10 to September 30. Favorite heroes will take the stage for a brand new, live-action super-production featuring cutting-edge special effects and spectacular projections.
Multi-year expansion plans are also underway at Hong Kong, including a new themed area that will include an exciting attraction where guests team up with Ant-Man and The Wasp. This new attraction will join the Iron Man Experience, which opened in 2017 and is already the most popular attraction at the resort.
We’ll let you know as soon as additional updates for the parks are made available.
