The Walt Disney Company announced this week that the presence of the popular Marvel franchises will be expanding at the Disneyland Resort in California. On the heels of the success of “The Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission Breakout!” ride last year, the company has decided to forge ahead with an even greater Marvel expansion at Disney’s California Adventure Park. Although details are slim to none as of now, Marvel has already stated that this will be a completely immersive section of the park.
The Marvel area will take over what is currently the family-friendly “Bug’s Land” section of California Adventure. Last week, the “It’s Tough to be a Bug” attraction closed after having been in operation for over a decade. The rest of the area will close by the end of the summer to make way for the Marvel expansion. Disney officials have said the new area will feature popular characters from the Iron Man and Spider-Man franchises to go along with the current Guardians of the Galaxy presence. In addition to attractions and shopping opportunities, the area will feature a new live show debuting in 2020. And as with all Disney parks, there will be sure to be an abundance of character meet and greet opportunities.
Disneyland Resort in Anaheim is not the only Disney resort getting the Marvel treatment. Officials also announced Marvel expansions at Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland, delighting Disney and Marvel fans all over the globe.
