Disneyland is squashing its bugs in favor of Marvel superheroes, as it plans to replace the “a bug’s land” at Disney California Adventure theme park in Anaheim with a new “Land” devoted to Marvel comic characters.
New Marvel Lands will also be developed in Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong.
“At Disneyland Resort, the new themed land will be anchored by the popular Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! at Disney California Adventure park, which has become the highest-rated attraction at Disneyland Resort since its 2017 opening,” according to a Disney press release from Tuesday.
“The Guardians of the Galaxy will be joined by Spider-Man and the Avengers in what will become a completely immersive Super Hero universe. This expanded presence will begin recruiting guests in 2020, furthering the evolution of Disney California Adventure park.”
This latest move continues the ongoing renovations at Disney California Adventure, which is under construction right now turning its former Paradise Pier into a new land called Pixar Pier, including a newly revamped roller coaster, new carousel and renovated Mickey’s Fun Wheel ferris wheel.
The land marked the first major expansion of California Adventure, in response to vocal criticism that the park had too few fun rides when it opened in 2001.
Disney parks officials have been working to figure out how to drive more visitors into the less-crowded Disney California Adventure from the original park of Disneyland, before the projected July 2019 opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land, expected to send attendance into the stratosphere.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
