Disneyland Resort (DL, DLR, DCA) Discussion Thread

P. 388: Avengers Campus opening June 4th!

Recommended Posts

This ride would make much more sense if it was the Avengers tower. The tower and ToT already look similar as is!

The Guardians of the Galaxy are not part of the Avengers (yet)

Cool, I'll fire it up and not open it for the first 4 hours of the day for realism purposes...

I'm just happy for all the terrible Disney anti-fan boys who will have something to complain about once the park reopens!

Maybe that "Recall Newsome" attempt will pass, and then you could get a Governor that doesn't hate business who will trash his "tier" system where every tier means that things stay closed.  Hell, even

Sort of. That's a landing pad for the Avengers jet, which is a VTOL model (Vertical Takeoff and Landing). The US army was experimenting with those around the time Stan Lee was writing the Avengers.

 

On a side note, the real VTOL project was scrapped due to significant cost overruns. Basically, it's possible, but there are just so many moving parts that it's difficult and expensive to keep one of those running. Plus, there just aren't that many uses for VTOL jets where they'd have any significant advantage over normal helicopters. They're supersonic, and that can help tactically, but we just found Black Hawks much more useful in the end. So the Avengers jet is a cool little piece of history.

 

The Avengers tower would have worked for theme, yes, but the Collector's museum makes for a myriad of theming possibilities. Marvel fans like me will go nuts over the movie memorabilia in the queue. I think Disney is on the right track with this attraction.

^ And after that, put an indoor coaster "and then a step to the ri-ri-right" of it.

 

A Marvel one I heard, based on Rock 'n' Roller?

I can Blue Sky dream.

I haven't heard anything about a roller coaster in the Marvel land. It could be in the plans and I'm just not aware of it. In any case, it would be a good idea. With just 2 coasters in DCA, they could certainly add another if a coaster is what is needed to tell the story they want to tell. They don't "need" a coaster, but it could certainly be on the table for that area.

^ This photo with the projected overlay of MARVEL, was posted on MiceChat.com (Thank you!) ~ I held onto it just to remind myself what area is possibly being considered for any kind or type of "Marvel Land." etc. But I can see how easily a rock'n'roller clone could fit into this space, if used.

 

That said...who knows?

A Marvel indoor coaster might fit in nicely, south of the Guardians ToT. But why take out the kids' Bumper Cars?

^ Yes, where that striped umbrella top is. It covers the Tumble Bugs' Bumper cars (Not real name, I forget.)

 

Looking at the actual "shadow's" dimensions there, that part conveniently fits an indoor coaster's "station/queue".

 

Or vice versa, and that's the ride/show building's space itself, hmmm? What I see.

Hmm. The focus has been so much on the ToT overlay that not much has been said about the rest of the land. It'll be interesting to see what they do with it. I for one would absolutely welcome another coaster in DCA. I hear good things about the Rock n' Roller Coaster if it does end up being a version of that ride. I'm new to all this, as you know, but I got hit by the Disney Parks bug badly on my WCB trip. They really blew me away with the level of quality all across the board--and that was with many attractions down for construction. I will need to go back here once the SW and Marvel lands are done, for sure. It'll give me a good excuse to do another WCB if there are any more.

I have no info about marvel land; however, the available land over there is not as big as that image suggests. That very large road is used for the resort to move traffic around. And will likely be in use until the new Parking Structure is build. As well, that road is also the Right of Way for the power lines, and Disney may not be able to actually build on that land. Even if they buried the lines, they wont own the land.

 

As well, the Red Car Trolley Barn is directly to the left of TOT, so that land is not usable either.

 

Finally, the whole area to the right of the tower is a power sub station, and again, will likely not be moving.

LOL!

 

Actually, that's not a bad thought. Considering the Tower and the edge of cars land, AND the Power Lines, there's going to be a of of weird/tall barriers. If they just made the whole area indoors, that would solve all the sight line issues and the land would be fully impressive. Just like the Little Mermaid Land in Tokyo Disney SEA.

So what you're saying is Disney will build the entirety of Marvel Land underground...

 

Sort of related: I have always thought that would be a MUCH better use of the submarine lagoon show building. Plop a new building/facade on top of the giant hole/show building that is already there.

Still brings us back to the point that Disney can't use Marvel in the name of anything, nor use characters in there American parks, until they buy out Universal Orlando's rights to use the characters. And Universal ain't giving that up anytime soon.. A Marvel land will never happen in Disneyland or Disneyworld

That only applies East of the Mississippi River (And I believe Japan, too. I could be wrong about that, though). Disneyland can do whatever they please.
