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

Anyone know if a new pass program will debut with the re-opening? I can't wait to go back but it just doesn't make sense for me to buy a day ticket since I hit Disney pretty frequently. 

That is the million dollar question right now!  I assume we'll see info released next week.  They won't want to release anything tomorrow due to April Fools Day, and then it's the weekend, so hopefully ticketing/pass info the week of the 5th.

I don't mind myself, but the alcohol is creeping further into Disneyland.   I always wanted to try a Meyers Rum/Dole Pineapple Whip, so maybe someday!

"Disneyland adding a second place to buy alcohol in the park

The Blue Bayou will serve beer, sparkling wine and Hurricane cocktails when the New Orleans Square restaurant returns after Disneyland reopens on April 30."

Not sure if this is news or not but I passed by the park today on a run and California Screamin' was running test runs using what seemed like all trains. I've been passing for weeks now and it's the first time I have seen it go.

More magical by the hour!  :mickey:

 

Actually ....... we think it's great, that a lot of the stuff that is at Disney Parks around the world, might show up in some form or fashion at The Original Park, after all these years! And me and David, are only a nice overnight train ride away from all this, is truly awesome for future visits! It's going to be interesting to see what they actually install in the areas they intend to "Theme and Connect" with the 2 parks. However it works out.

And Mickey & Minnie's RR is about ready (nearly) to open, Woo Hoo!

Thank you Blitzen and MiceCHAT.com for the photo.

No word on a new pass program yet.

Avengers Campus at Disneyland Resort Set to Open and Recruit Super Heroes June 4

https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2021/04/avengers-campus-at-disneyland-resort-set-to-open-and-recruit-super-heroes-june-4/

Super Heroes Assemble! As we’ve all been anticipating, I’m pleased to share that Avengers Campus – an entirely new land dedicated to discovering, recruiting and training the next generation of Super Heroes – will open June 4, 2021 at the Disneyland Resort!

At this fully immersive land inside Disney California Adventure park, you will be invited to team up with the Avengers and their allies and live out your Super Hero dreams. Avengers Campus is comprised of several heroic locations, each hosted by a different Avenger to share their unique powers, technology and knowledge with recruits. Today, I’m also excited to unveil a first look inside Avengers Campus!

Sling webs with Spider-Man and unite with the Guardians of the Galaxy

The first key area is the Worldwide Engineering Brigade – also known as WEB. It brings together bright innovators like Peter Parker who have been assembled by Tony Stark to invent new technologies and equip everyday people to become Super Heroes like the Avengers. WEB will house the new WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, the first Disney ride-through attraction to feature the iconic friendly neighborhood Spider-Man!

We previously shared that Tom Holland will reprise his role as Spider-Man in the new family-friendly attraction, which invites you to put your web-slinging skills to the test and experience what it’s like to have powers alongside Spider-Man – a feat accomplished with innovative technology adapted specifically for this attraction, perfect for up-and-coming recruits of all ages.

The second anchor attraction looms high above the land, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!, a fan-favorite that opened in 2017. This rockin’ adventure blasts you straight into the “Guardians of the Galaxy” story, alongside characters from the blockbuster films and comics. As you help Rocket bust his fellow Guardians of the Galaxy out of the Collector’s Fortress, you will experience raucous mayhem, music inspired by the soundtracks from the movies, thrilling free-fall drop sequences and six different story lines!

Power up with tiny treats and massive meals

When it is time to take a break from the heroics, several new dining spots at Avengers Campus will offer dishes that are rich in both flavor and storytelling. Pym Test Kitchen is a food innovation science lab where the food and drinks tell a story. Just as Ant-Man and The Wasp use “Pym Particles” to grow and shrink just about anything, Pym Technologies applies this science to the creation of shareable bites, inventive entrees and sweet treats. You will be able to savor such items as the Impossible™ plant-based large and micro meatballs with pasta, or the “Pym-ini,” a panini served by the slice or as a long, multi-portion sandwich.

Adjacent to the Pym Test Kitchen, an oversized beer can overhead signals that grown-up beverage tastings are available at Pym Tasting Lab. You can order a craft beer, ranging from a blood orange hefeweizen to an amber lager, or try one of the Pym Research Staff’s Pym Particle-infused cocktail experiments. Both locations will offer mobile ordering via the Disneyland App.*

Visit one of The Avengers favorite food joints, Shawarma Palace. Enjoy a shawarma wrap at this food cart, which is decked out with memorabilia for Avenger fans. Lastly, Taneleer Tivan did not limit his collection to lovable misfits; he is also curating a weird and wonderful menu of intergalactic eats at the Terran Treats food cart near Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!

Team up with the Avengers and their allies like never before 

Throughout Avengers Campus, Super Heroes will come to life in more exciting ways than ever. You may have heroic encounters with Iron Man, Captain Marvel, Black Panther, the Dora Milaje, Black Widow, Ant-Man and The Wasp, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor and even villains like Loki, some of whom are making their first appearances at the park. You may even have the chance to witness Spider-Man swinging into action high above Avengers Campus with gravity-defying, acrobatic feats never seen before in a Disney theme park. At a nearby ancient sanctum, Doctor Strange will train recruits in the mystic arts by bringing this ancient sanctum to life with powerful spells. At night, the area glows even more vividly with majestic colors and lights, pulsating with mystic energy.

Suit up with the latest Super Hero gear

The WEB Suppliers store will offer the latest inventions, including interactive Spider-Bots much like the ones you will see in the new attraction, WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure. Each Spider-Bot has a remote control, and all eight articulated legs move forward and backward. You may customize your Spider-Bot with tactical upgrades to harness the powers and style of favorite Super Heroes, including Black Panther, Iron Man and Black Widow, as well as Ant-Man and The Wasp. Other must-have items at WEB Suppliers include a specially-designed backpack to carry Spider-Bots when they are not in action, Spider-Man light goggles, a take-home spider web kit and Funko Pop! vinyl figurines of Spider-Man and Iron Man. The Campus Supply Pod is the place to power up with official Avengers Campus gear, including performance fleece hoodies and tees, headwear, drinkware and other Super Hero supplies.

 

We are counting down the days till we can team up with the Avengers and their allies, sling webs with Spider-Man, taste-test inventive food and drinks and become part of a bigger universe alongside some of our favorite Super Heroes.

That's some interesting word use for yet another shooting gallery ride.  I'm curious if they actually have something worthwhile going on with it.

Well is it a Palace or a cart?!  Come on, Disney, I would have thought you guys knew the difference what with all the fairy tales.

I hadn't been following this project at all as I'm not super into Marvel, but now that KT is somewhat obsessed it looks pretty cool!  So this took over the bugs life area right?  Hope non-Californians are allowed in at some point before the summer is over.

^^^ All the same, it seems to me that a number of Disney's (and other parks) attractions are those where you have to "work" at it, while you're riding it.

i.e. a shooting gallery ride. Whether you are using a handheld device or just hand gestures now, it's still the same practice. Now imagine that the entire Haunted Mansion ride was a "seek and find" shooting ride? Would that be fun, or just overkill? I'm not sure.

I also have the feeling that the new Avengers Phase 2 attraction will not only involve a new kind of transport system, but once again, you'll probably be firing at something(s) for either points... or just plain satisfaction, heh. Just noting, here.

^ And yes, it is quite rare to see that food regularly at most parks. Except maybe during a Food Festival, etc. Shawarma Rawks!

 

EDIT TO ADD: Now that I've thought more on it ...... whatever. I'd ride it, once I visited there.

I just hope I don't exhaust myself on it! 😋 (All those hand gestures, y'know?)

Yep, this took over A Bug's Land, and the Flic's Fliers balloon race ride was rethemed and relocated to Pixar Pier where Maliboomer used to be.

Is the E-Ticket Avengers ride still planned for this expansion in the future? If so that's going to be a really awesome lineup eventually with the Guardians Tower, the Spiderman ride, and the Avengers attraction. I don't really have any expectations for the Spiderman ride other than I hope it's a lot of fun, then again never Disney really doesn't miss so this should be fine.

I'm really interested to see how the Spiderman ride turns out.  People will definitely compare it to the Spiderman ride at IOA, which is still one of the best dark rides in the world, so the stakes are pretty big here.  I like the retheming of the area though and it makes a lot more sense with the Guardians ride now.  Bug's Life was never a great IP and I don't think anyone will miss it.

I wonder if it will almost be more like the Avengers ride at IMG in Dubai.  I really liked their little Marvel area!

 

Here's a video we shot on it:

I'm curious to see if that outdoor Spider-man animatronic will be swinging around the area. 

We're hoping to take my Mom to Disneyland in late fall this year (a trip we had to delay thanks to COVID). She's a DCA fan but hasn't been there since they changed the place. The Marvel stuff doesn't interest her because they don't have Superman. But she is happy that they still have Soarin'.  😆 I'm looking forward to seeing the Avengers Campus, though (hoping that non-California residents will be able to visit by then).

The internet rumors (emphasize on rumor) are that was delayed or canceled as a result of the pandemic.

Assuming that to be the case, business will quickly recover once all restrictions are lifted, so I can’t imagine it will be shelved for too long.   Probably on the back half of the decade.
