We’re so excited to learn about all the new things coming to the parks and can’t wait to see what Disney has in store for us!
Our appetites, wallets, and excitement have all assembled, and yours are about to also!
Marvel is celebrating 80 years of action this year on August 31st. In honor of the anniversary, Disney California Adventure is celebrating the superheroes all month long in heroic ways with merchandise, food, and entertainment!
Happy weekend! We’ve been hard at work in the parks scoping out all the latest news for you, which is compiled here! First, a few things to remember…

Are you ready to discover the power of the heart-shaped herb?
One of the strongest heroes has arrived in Disney California Adventure. Don’t worry, though — you don’t have to travel all the way to Wakanda to meet him.
