After conquering the global box office, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has its sights set on the world of theme parks next: The Avengers and other Marvel characters are coming together for a trio of new experiences at Disney Parks across the world.
According to the Disney Parks Blog, the attractions will "invite guests to become part of a bigger universe filled with epic heroes and adventures," and feature Marvel-themed lands with rides, stage shows, and experiences where fans can interact directly with their favorite characters from the MCU. The three parks that will be gaining new attractions are Disneyland Resort, Disneyland Paris, and Hong Kong Disneyland.
At Disneyland Resort, a separate Super Hero-themed land is in the works, featuring attractions centered around the Guardians of the Galaxy, the rebooted Spider-Man, as well as the OG Avengers. The Disney Parks Blog touts this development as "a completely immersive Super Hero universe," which will be built around the existing popular ride Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! at the California Adventure park. It's slated to open in 2020.
Disneyland Paris, meanwhile, will get "a reimagined attraction where riders will team up with Iron Man and their favorite Avengers on a hyper-kinetic adventure" opening in 2020, as well as a summer-long celebration of Marvel heroes this year. At Hong Kong Disneyland, a new themed area will highlight Ant-Man and the Wasp.
Of course, none of this would be possible without the MCU, and its latest offering is hitting theaters soon: "Avengers: Infinity War" is set for global release on April 27.
