Avengers And Other Super Heroes To Assemble In New Themed Areas At Disneyland Resort, Disneyland Paris & Hong Kong Disneyland

Highly anticipated new experiences at Disneyland Resort, Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland will soon invite guests to become part of a bigger universe filled with epic heroes and adventures, and today we’re sharing a sneak peek! Developed in partnership with Marvel Studios and Marvel Themed Entertainment, these three new areas will champion the next generation of Super Heroes.

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.

As part of the transformative multi-year expansion announced for 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 Disneyland, 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.

Join your favorite heroes soon for these and more epic adventures at Disney Parks around the world!

Disneyland Offers Peek At Guardians of The Galaxy Attraction

a

Months before its announced summer 2017 opening, Disneyland has released new images of proposed Guardians of the Galaxy attraction, which will replace the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney California Adventure.

Announced in July at Comic-Con International, three months after plans for the makeover first leaked, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout will transform the 1930s-style Hollywood Tower Hotel into The Collector’s fortress from Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy, while keeping its elevator-drop ride elements.

“It really has a lot different design elements that all come together and create what’s really a very striking building,” John Mauro, executive director of Walt Disney Imagineering, said a new video. “It’s going to look like a brand-new attraction.”

The model shown in the new images was designed by Walt Disney Imagineering as a “warehouse, fortress-like power plant” that’s intended to be both intimidating and regal. The completed structure is where The Collector displays his newest acquisitions, the Guardians of the Galaxy, who are trapped inside customized display cases. Visitors, aka the Collector’s VIP guests, will board a gantry lift that launches them into a chaotic adventure with Rocket Raccoon to rescue his teammates.

According to Disney, the attraction will be outfitted with new visual and audio effects, as well as music from the film’s hit soundtrack. The company also promises “a variety of randomizes ride experiences,” meaning guests won’t know which adventure they’ll get.

The planned replacement of the 12-year-old Tower of Terror hasn’t been without controversy. Following the July announcement of the makeover, a petition was launched on Change.org to urge Disney to save the attraction, drawing more than 35,000 supporters. Although the Tower of Terror at Disney California Adventure will close on Jan. 3, versions of the ride will continue to operate at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida, Tokyo DisneySea, and Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris.

Licensing agreements with Universal Orlando predating Disney’s $4 billion purchase of Marvel in 2009 prevent the company’s characters from appearing at Disney World in Florida. Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout will provide Marvel with its first permanent anchor at Disneyland.

Directed and co-written by James Gunn, 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy grossed more than $773 million worldwide. Its sequel arrives May 6, 2017.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan and Kurt Russell.
