The Marvel-inspired Avengers Campus in Disney California Adventure is Disneyland Resort’s newest land which officially opened on June 4, 2021!
That’s right! The Avengers have set up a campus “to recruit the next generation of Super Heroes.” (And that means YOU!)
The Opening Ceremony of Avengers Campus took place ahead of the land’s opening on June 2, 2021, and you can see all the details and watch a replay of the exciting event here!
The Land and Avengers Campus Access
There are three entrances to the new 6-acre land in Disney California Adventure, and you can see the layout with the complete map of the land!
You can also see where Avengers Campus fits in with the rest of the park here.
Guests are able to enter at the main entrance next to the Worldwide Engineering Brigade.
Disney has specified that there are TWO ways you can gain access to Avengers Campus: the standby queue for the land itself or the virtual queue option for WEB SLINGERS.
Essentially, when Avengers Campus reaches capacity, a standby queue to enter the land will become available. You’ll find it to the right of the main entrance to the Campus (by the Worldwide Engineering Brigade).
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 as they sling virtual webs to catch the Spider-Bots that have started to cause panic…
WEB SLINGERS joins the previously open Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! attraction in Disney California Adventure.
Disney has previously shared that Avengers Campus will ultimately also include a brand new E-ticket attraction with an innovative ride system that puts YOU in the middle of the Avengers action!
Here you will “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.”
New dining locations are available to help you fuel your inner Super Hero 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!
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 villains like Loki, too!)
Ant-Man and The Wasp make their first appearances on Avengers Campus!
And Iron Man dons his new Mark 80 armor.
Doctor Strange will give lessons in the mystic arts in an ancient sanctum, which will glow with color and light in the evening…
And the Taskmaster (from the upcoming “Black Widow” movie), whose abilities include “photographic reflexes” which “reflect Super Hero moves” will be seen for the first time.
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’ll also want to be on the lookout for 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!
Avengers Campus Merchandise
Outside of the land itself, we spotted Avengers Campus merchandise at the Emporium in Disneyland!

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 will open an Avengers Campus as well (originally slated for a 2021 opening). A multi-year expansion for the park will also include themed areas for Star Wars and Frozen.
And on June 21, 2021, a new hotel experience is opening in Paris with Disney’s Hotel New York — The Art of Marvel in Paris!
“The hotel will celebrate 80 years of Marvel art and artists, with more than 300 curated works of art on display. Rooms will include one-of-a-kind themed suites featuring favorite Super Heroes like Spider-Man, and you can even meet these legends in a dedicated space.”
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.” His presentation included a glimpse at the lobby area in progress, which looks just like the original concept art.
Disney announced that Disney’s Hotel New York — The Art of Marvel will open to guests on June 21, 2021 with bookings available starting May 18th, AND an exclusive launch offer, which you can learn about here!
