Beginning May 27th at California Adventure is when the summer celebration ‘Summer of Heroes’ takes off and will provide guests some ‘out-of-this-galaxy’ superhero encounters.

Speaking of the galaxy, Star Lord, Gamora, and the one and only Groot will be making their debut at Disneyland Resort!

You can meet them in the “Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off!” where you can show the Guardians your dance moves from earth! Groot will only make his appearances towards the end of the dance off. Also, the Groot coming to DCA will be a full ‘adult’ Groot, unlike the baby Groot meet and greet at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Here’s your first look at the gang:

Summer of Heroes will also bring more excitement across Hollywood Land, including the Avengers Training Initiative featuring Black Widow and Hawkeye and heroic encounters with Black Widow, Captain America and your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. This includes the opening of the Guardian’s of Galaxy Mission: Breakout ride and the Guardians Dance off which all debuts May 27th at Disney’s California Adventure.

That’s not fair. Gamora doesn’t look THAT bad.

Gamora’s makeup is really disappointing. :-(

This Starlord version looks better than the DHS version (more like Chris Pratt, I mean).
