Big things are happening around the Disneyverse this week with coast to coast excitement. Walt Disney World has Pandora going on, which looks cool, but come on… can it really compare to Disneyland’s summer offering? Disney California Adventure brings you something out of this world: the Disneyland Summer of Heroes media preview starts Thursday and Friday, with the grand opening of Guardians of the Galaxy–Mission: BREAKOUT!
Did y’all hear me squeal from here? You know how I feel about my Super Heroes!
This summer is going to be one to remember at Disneyland. In addition to Guardians of the Galaxy–Mission: BREAKOUT! opening on May 27th, we will also have the return of the Disneyland Railroad and Rivers of America attractions, including the “Fantasmic!” nighttime spectacular. Those will return later this summer.
But first: let’s talk about this Summer of Heroes, shall we? This is scheduled to run from May 27 through Sept. 10.
Summer of Heroes will launch new, year-round experiences:
• Guardians of the Galaxy–Mission: BREAKOUT! – This new adventure blasts guests straight into the “Guardians of the Galaxy” story for the first time, alongside characters from the blockbuster films and comics. As guests join Rocket in his attempt to bust his pals out of the Collector’s Fortress, they’ll experience randomized ride experiences complete with all-new visual and audio effects and music inspired by the popular film soundtracks.
• Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off! Star-Lord will fire up his old-school boom box to get a party started. Everyone is bound to get in the groove and show off their moves during this awesome rock ‘n’ roll bash!
• Super Hero Encounters – For the first time, citizens of Earth will come face-to-face with tree-of-few-words Groot, one of the Guardians of the Galaxy! They may also encounter the First Avenger, Captain America, and everyone’s favorite web-slinger, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
GROOT. Guys, we get to meet GROOT!
For a limited time, guests also will discover more new adventures, exclusive to Summer of Heroes:
• 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.
• Heroic Encounter: Black Widow – Black Widow will arrive on the scene several times throughout the day in an armored Avengers vehicle for her heroic encounter with park guests.
• Grab a Piece (or Bite) of the Action – Special themed merchandise and food will be available throughout Hollywood Land.
I’ve got my Annual Pass ready to go- how about you? Who’s ready to #HeroUp this summer at the Disneyland Resort?
