We had a case of wanderlust this week, and instead of getting out the passport and packing, we just hopped over to spend the day in Epcot. Our journey started with some time spent in Future World, followed by a trip around the World Showcase. And boy, did we find a lot new eats and buys for you on this “trip”!
Are you ready to become part of a BIGGER UNIVERSE? Because Disney — together with Marvel Studios and Marvel Themed Entertainment — is developing three news areas that “will champion the next generation of Super Heroes.” New heroic experiences are on the way to Disneyland Paris, Hong Kong Disneyland, and DISNEYLAND RESORT in California!
Disney California Adventure
Disneyland Resort will debut an entirely new Super Hero-themed land in 2020, with further anticipated experiences beyond that.
As part of the evolution of Disney California Adventure park, the transformation will result in a “completely immersive Super Hero universe,” bringing together The Guardians of the Galaxy, Spider-Man, and the Avengers. The new land will be anchored by the Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: BREAKOUT! attraction, in the current “a bug’s land” area.
Note that “a bug’s land” will close entirely in late summer to make way for this new land. See ya later Chew-Chew Train!
More Marvel in More Disney Destinations
The D23 Expo Japan is currently taking place, so you know what that means… we’ve got NEWS to share!!!
Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek presented details regarding projects underway in Walt Disney World, Disneyland, and Disney Destinations around the world. Let’s start with what’s in store for Disney World!
Walt Disney World
Star Wars Hotel
One of the major pieces of news from last summer’s D23 event was the announcement of a Star Wars-inspired resort on the way to Disney World! More than a themed resort, the experience will be completely immersive for guests who will enter into the galaxy and story of Star Wars!
Today’s updates relayed that the immersive resort will be “seamlessly connected” to the upcoming Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Hollywood Studios.
The Summer of Heroes at Disney California Adventure is ON!!! The celebration began on May 27th when the Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: BREAKOUT attraction opened its doors — and its drops! — to guests for the very first time. And the party keeps going until September 10th. That means there’s plenty of time to try the specialty Summer of Heroes snacks and sips!
Thank gooooodness Heather Sievers, our @DiningInDisney bestie, is on the scene to scope it all out for us (because there is a LOT to take in)! Can we get a Groot-hoo?!
So, let’s say you’re in Disney California Adventure for the Summer of Heroes celebration (running now through September 10th), and you need some fueling up STAT.
Well, you’ve only got about a bajillion options (and we’ll be taking a look at lots and LOTS of them soon!). You could choose a Spider Bite Doughnut at Schmoozies or pop over to Award Wieners for a variety of Funnel Cake Fries.
But there’s something you simply have to see before you decide.
It’s Groot Bread. Otherwise known as I AM BREAD.
And it’s completely stinking PERFECT.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opened last weekend and the cutest member of the Guardians has to be Baby Groot! We just love the little guy, so we were super excited when we spotted a couple of Baby Groot items at Disney’s Hollywood Studios today!
How cute is this Baby Groot Sipper? You’ll find the cup at the popcorn carts at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. He can be yours – filled with your favorite fountain beverage – for just $12.75.
