Today at the Disney Shareholder meeting the opening date for a highly anticipated park addition was announced. Starting on July 18, 2020 guests of Disney’s California Adventure will be able to enjoy the first phase of the new Avengers Campus!

The Disneyland Avengers Campus is just one of several Avengers Campuses that will be opening around the world in Disney Parks in Asia and Paris.
Avengers Campus will be the home of several new shows, character meet and greets, and of course rides. The already open Collector’s Fortress (otherwise known as Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!) has been thrilling guests for several years now, but come July guests will also be able to ride the new WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure s 3D ride where guests will help Spider-Man while slinging their own webs thanks to gesture recognition.
The new land will also include two new shows and several meet and greet options. “Avengers Headquarters” action show where guests can watch Captain America, Black Panther, and Black Widow face off against Taskmaster. Guests who have a desire to learn the secrets of the mystic arts can visit the “The Sanctum” and learn about the Orb of Cagliostro from Doctor Strange. Today is was confirmed that guests of the Avengers Campus will have a chance to popular meet many popular Avengers. Starting in July guests should be on the look out for Black Widow; Ant-Man and The Wasp, Captain Marvel; Captain America; the Guardians of the Galaxy; Iron Man; Black Panther; Thor; Loki and Groot.
For those in need of supplies “WEB Suppliers!” will have you covered with all of the “standard” Disney theme park Marvel inspired shirts, hats, toys etc. we have all grown to love and expect. Guests will also be able to take home their own Spider-Bot from Each remote controlled Spider-Bot is customizable with tactical upgrade options that let guests “harness the powers and style of favorite Super Heroes, including Black Panther, Iron Man, Black Widow, and Ant-Man and The Wasp.”
Hungry Campus guests will be able to visit the Pym Test Kitchen where Ant-Man and the Wasp utilize “the revolutionary shrink-and-grow technology of Pym Particles, Ant-Man and The Wasp lead a team of research chefs as they pioneer a menu packed with massive meals, tiny treats and shareable bites that save the day.” The following menu items were announced today for this location
- The Impossible™ Spoonful features plant-based large and micro meatballs, served in a super-sized spoon with a tiny fork.
- The “Pym-ini” is a hero among sandwiches. This panini on toasted focaccia with salami, rosemary ham, provolone, sun-dried tomato mayonnaise, and arugula with marinara dipping sauce, is served as both an individual-sized portion, as well as a long, multi-portion sandwich
- The Not So Little Chicken Sandwich was developed to satisfy guests who are looking for a high-protein, low-carb intake. A crispy breaded chicken breast has grown with the help of Pym Particles, while its accompanying bun seems to have shrunk. The sandwich is dressed with two different sauces—one slightly sweet teriyaki sauce, one slightly spicy chili sauce—and a pickled cabbage slaw.
- Pingo Doce soda will be available, the distinctly green soft drink—which boasts hints of both lime and vanilla—has deep roots within the Avengers universe. Fans may remember Bruce Banner taking a job at the Pingo Doce Bottling Company way back when he was on the run in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Other Avengers Campus dining locations will include The Pym Tasting Lab a lounge with Avengers themed adult beverages, a food cart named the Shawarma Palace, and the Terran Treats food cart which will feature “intergalactic eats and treats as well as a changing variety of colorful Sweet Spiral Rations.”
