The Marvel-inspired Avengers Campus in Disney California Adventure is Disneyland Resort’s newest land which officially opened on June 4, 2021!
Avengers Campus is EXPANDING! Find out about the NEW attraction coming to the land HERE!
That’s right! The Avengers have set up a campus “to recruit the next generation of Super Heroes.” (And that means YOU!)
This new land features a brand new attraction (joining Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: BREAKOUT!), a new restaurant and lounge and food carts, new merchandise locations, heroic character interactions, and MUCH more!
So, let’s ASSEMBLE…
… and EXPLORE!

Avengers Campus Attractions
WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure
Avengers Campus has delivered the debut of WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, the first ride-through Disney attraction to feature Spider-Man.
WEB SLINGERS is housed in the Worldwide Engineering Brigade (WEB, of course!) where Tony Stark has gathered innovators such as Peter Parker himself to invent new technologies which will equip everyday people to become Super Heroes!
During the attraction, guests are invited by inspiring inventors like Peter Parker to go for a test drive of the “Web-Slinger” vehicle.
However, riders must put their superhero skills to the test…
How? By slinging virtual webs to catch the Spider-Bots that have started to wreak panic!
Height requirement: None
Access: Standby Line and Disney Genie+ option
Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!
WEB SLINGERS joined the previously open Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! attraction in Disney California Adventure.
It’s up to YOU to help Rocket rescue his fellow Guardians of the Galaxy (Star-Lord, Gamora, Rocket, Drax and Groot) as they have been capture by Taneleer Tivan, the Collector! This thrill ride features free-fall drop sequences and six different storylines. Oh, and an AWESOME soundtrack, of course!
Height requirement: 40 inches
Ages: Teens, Adults
Access: Standby Line and Disney Genie+ option
A NEW ATTRACTION TO COME!
In September 2022, it was announced that a NEW attraction will be part of an upcoming expansion of Avengers Campus!
Though the name of the new ride has not yet been announced, we know that guests will battle villains — including the new King Thanos — from everywhere (and “everywhen“) alongside the Avengers and their allies.
Get ready to go deeper into the MULTIVERSE…
Avengers Campus Dining
Fuel your inner Super Hero with eats, treats, and drinks on Avengers Campus!
Pym Test Kitchen serves up eats that have been “enlarged or shrunk with Pym Particles,” for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner with cooks under the instruction of Ant-Man and The Wasp.
Check out the “massive meals, tiny treats and shareable bites” on the menu at this quick service restaurant!
And if you’d like to see what the Kitchen is serving for breakfast, just click here!
At the Pym Tasting Lab, of-age guests may order from a selection of craft beers or enjoy “one of the Pym Research Staff’s Pym Particle-infused cocktail experiments.”
And, by invitation of The Avengers, the Shawarma Palace has opened a “second location” on the Campus (with the first, of course, being their favorite shawarma joint back in NYC). The cart, decorated with Avengers memorabilia, serves shawarma-inspired snacks.
And guess what? If the Shawarma Palace is busy during your visit, there is also a Shawarma Palace Too where you can grab similar eats!
Another food cart, Terran Treats, serves intergalactic sweets…
…like Sweet Spiral Rations (rolled churros!) and a Cosmic Cream Orb!
You do NOT want to miss any of your heroes IN ACTION! You can find the showtimes for your visit on the Entertainment Schedule on the Disneyland website and the Disneyland app.

The shows aren’t the only place to find your favorite heroes (and villains), though…
Avengers Campus Character Encounters
Guests visiting Avengers Campus can anticipate the possibility of “heroic encounters” with characters such as Iron Man, Captain America, Captain Marvel, Black Widow, Doctor Strange, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther, the Dora Milaje, and Thor.
You’ll want to be on the lookout for Loki, too!
Ant-Man and The Wasp make appearances on Avengers Campus!
And Iron Man dons his new Mark 80 armor.
And the Taskmaster (from Black Widow), whose abilities include “photographic reflexes” which “reflect Super Hero moves” is also seen for the first time here.
You’ll want to keep an eye out for Shang-Chi, too. But, be careful!
In Avengers Campus you might also spot Death Dealer, Shang-Chi’s former mentor and a high-ranking master of the martial arts in the Ten Rings organization.
Essentially, you never know exactly who you’ll see from the Marvel Universe, and that’s definitely part of the fun! As more Marvel characters make their way to the big screen, like the Eternals…
… and the Universe further explores the stories of characters like Hawkeye, you can expect to see more and more characters on Avengers Campus!
Depending on film and series releases, some characters may be seen just for a limited time. For instance, the Scarlet Witch and America Chavez appeared in tandem with the release of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Moon Knight and the mild-mannered Mr. Knight have made recent appearances. And Ms. Marvel has joined the Avengers Campus team! For a limited time, the Mighty Thor (Jane Foster) from Thor: Love and Thunder made appearances, as well. And the Incredible Hulk appeared in Avengers Campus in his Quantum Suit for a limited time! And M’Baku from Wakanda Forever has made appearaces at Avengers Campus!
Avengers Campus Merchandise and Shopping
WEB Suppliers sells Spider-Bots, action figures, and more. The Spider-Bots are similar to those you’ll see in the new WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure attraction. These bots can be customized (much like droids at Droid Depot in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge).
You can even snag tactical upgrades that will change your bots’ appearance and battle capabilities. These include Black Panther, Iron Man, Black Widow, Ant-Man, and The Wasp.
You may want to check out the customizable WEB Tech accessories! Everyone will be able to sling webs aboard the new WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure attraction, but these accessories allow you to use your OWN powers to experience a different ride.
Onboard the ride, your WEB Power Band will feature an “attraction mode” that lets you personalize the game experience with “multi-fire.” That base costs $34.99.
The WEB Power Band add-ons include powers inspired by Spider-Man, Ghost Spider, Iron Man, or Rescue, and cost $29.99 apiece.
Stop by the Campus Supply Pod to gear up in Avengers Campus goods like hoodies, shirts, hats, drinkware, and more featuring the Campus logo. And The Collector’s Warehouse is where you can find toys, more apparel, and even comics!
Avengers Campus was originally scheduled to open on July 18, 2020. However, due to the unprecedented closure of the park, the opening of the land was delayed. In April 2021, a NEW opening date was announced, and Avengers Campus officially opened on June 4, 2021!
The Future of Avengers Campus in Disney California Adventure
Disney previously shared that Avengers Campus would ultimately also include a brand new E-ticket attraction with an innovative ride system that puts YOU in the middle of the Avengers action. It was meant to open in a second Phase for the Campus.
Here guests would “step onboard a Quinjet and fly alongside the Avengers in an epic adventure to Wakanda and beyond! You will team up alongside the Avengers in a battle to save our world against one of the most powerful villains they have ever faced.”
However, in March 2022, Disney announced that this attraction has officially been put on hold.
Global Avengers Initiative
The presence of the Avengers expands to Disney parks beyond Disney California Adventure with the global Avengers Initiative, with new experiences and “interconnected stories” in Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland!
Disney has shared that “the Avengers are setting up new Headquarters and technology sharing exchanges around the globe to empower and inspire all potential recruits willing to step up and become heroes.”
Avengers Experiences – Hong Kong Disneyland
In Hong Kong Disneyland, guests can already take part in two attractions: the Iron Man Experience and Ant-Man and The Wasp: Nano Battle.
Avengers Campus — Disneyland Paris
Walt Disney Studios Park in Disneyland Paris opened an Avengers Campus, as well, on June 20, 2022! The land is similar to the Avengers Campus already in Disney’s California Adventure, but it features TWO attractions — Spider-Man W.E.B. Adventure and Avengers Assemble: Flight Force. (A multi-year expansion for the park will also include themed areas for Star Wars and Frozen.)
Avengers Assemble: Flight Force is a high-speed coaster where recruits are briefed by Iron Man, and then join him as well as Captain Marvel on a mission through space in a Stark vehicle! The vehicle is equipped with a homing device to help you lure a threat away from planet Earth. (Note that there is a height requirement of 47 inches for this coaster.)
And on June 21, 2021, a new hotel experience opened in Paris with Disney’s Hotel New York — The Art of Marvel in Paris!
The hotel’s design was created by more than 110 artists who showcase Marvel artwork throughout the lobby, rooms, and beyond. Designers drew direct inspiration from Tony Stark’s Wall of Armor with collector figurines, art books, exclusive editions of Marvel Comics, and more items to add to the overall architecture of the boutique building.
In November 2020, Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Josh D’Amaro shared that that the hotel is built with the idea of “celebrating 80 years of Marvel storytelling in a typical New York setting with a contemporary art deco style, which will include one of the largest publicly viewable collections or marvel artwork in the world.”
The four-star Hotel New York has 561 rooms with references to all kinds of Marvel stories, like Spider-Man’s webs on the ceiling of the Spider-Man Suite or the realm of Asgard from Thor on the Avengers Suites’ headboards.
There’s even the Art of Marvel Presidential Suites with two floors, contemporary and sleek furniture, exclusive Marvel artwork in every room, and additional amenities.
