New Marvel-themed land coming to Disneyland Resort in 2020!
Marvel at the Disneyland Resort has been full of rumors since 2009 when Disney bought Marvel Entertainment for $4 billion. Here we will discuss the latest on confirmed Marvel happenings at the Disneyland Resort as well as rumors and updates for all things Marvel inside the parks.
Marvel Land at the Disneyland Resort?
YES! Disney confirmed a super hero-themed land coming to Disneyland Resort in 2020 on March 20, 2018. I am over the moon!
The Disneyland Resort has struggled with ways to incorporate the newly acquired heroes into their parks since 2009. Captain America and other Marvel characters have had short-term homes in Disneyland’s Tomorrowland both at outdoor meet and greets and inside the short-lived Super Hero HQ in the Tomorrowland Expo Center.
As of July 2016, Marvel meet and greets like Spider Man can be found at California Adventure’s Hollywood Land. You can always check the official Disneyland app during your visit to find the most current location of character meet and greets.

Marvel at the Disneyland Resort “Summer of Heroes”
This event ended in 2017.
May 27 through September 10, 2017 “Summer of Heroes” will run at California Adventure. Here’s what to expect during “Summer of Heroes”:
- May 27th Grand Opening of Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: Breakout. Grab a FASTPASS first thing in the morning; we expect FASTPASSES to run out during the first few weeks (or months) of the new attraction’s opening.
- Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off! – it’s a boom-box style rock ‘n roll party in the often underused area of Hollywood Land that once hosted the popular Mad T. Party dance party.
- Marvel character encounters including Star-Lord, Black Widow, Spider-Man, Hawkeye or Captain America.
- Avengers Training Initiative – Black Widow and Hawkeye assemble young recruits for a series of tests to see if they have what it takes to join the ranks of the Avengers. We expect this to be similar to Jedi Training with an Avengers twist.
- Special Avengers merchandise and dining options
Marvel at the Disneyland Resort Must-Haves
In the past, it’s the girly Disney Princesses that have all the fun, but with Marvel joining the Disney team, we’ve seen just how SUPER everyone can be at the Disneyland Resort.
Here’s a few of my favorite Marvel merch to wear to Disneyland or have around the house.
These capes and make any kid into an instant super hero. Plus, this comes in a 4 pack set for tons of creative play and posing with different Marvel characters at Disneyland.
These Marvel t-shirts for Mom and Dad make a great themed outfit for the family at the Disneyland Resort.
