Disney announced earlier this year that Avengers Campus in Disney California Adventure will be opening sometime this year. With Disneyland hoping to open by the end of April, we thought that would include the new Avengers Campus. We now know that is not the case.
California has changed its reopening guidelines for theme parks and Disneyland can open as early as April 1, 2021. The parks will only be allowed to reopen at 15% capacity and exclusively to California residents. Disney announced they are hopeful the parks will be ready and able to open by the end of April but did not give exact dates.
During yesterday’s shareholder meeting, CEO Bob Chapek confirmed that Avengers Campus will open “later this year” indicating the Marvel-themed land will not open when the theme parks reopen. “At Disneyland Resort, the highly anticipated new Marvel-themed land Avengers Campus is currently scheduled to open later this year at Disney California Adventure,” Chapek said during the Shareholder’s meeting. “Guests will be able to sling webs like Spider-Man and see him soar through the air right before their eyes.”
Once Avengers Campus does open to the public later this year it will start with the first phase of Avengers Campus with a Spider-Man attraction called WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, a Doctor Strange section of the land called Sanctum, an Ant-Man and the Wasp restaurant called Pym Test Kitchen, and a Marvel character stunt show.
As for the second phase of the Marvel-themed land, it will open at a later date — currently an unannounced date — along with an Avengers E-ticket attraction.
We are so excited for the new Marvel-themed land to finally open in Disney California Adventure! Stay tuned for more information.
