Saturday was the official opening ceremony of the Marvel Summer of Super Heroes. This new season runs at Walt Disney Studios Park at Disneyland Paris from June 10 untill September 30. Highlights are three new shows, new characters, new food, and new merchandise. We try to take you through the official opening, so you know what to expect this summer at Disneyland Paris.
Catherine Powell opened the season with a special ceremony. The ‘official’ opening procedure had to be completed with a special device that arrived with a helicopter. After opening the Marvel heroes entered the stage and invited guests to follow them into the park. Disneyland Paris had a livestream (with two very sincerely enthusiastic hosts) that you can watch below.
Marvel: Super Heroes United
One of the main happenings is the new stunt show at the Studio Theater, Marvel: Super Heroes United. Three large statues already appeared last week in front of the Studio Theater. This theater first hosted the show/film Cinemagique, that closed now more than a year ago. The refurbished Studio Theater had a lot of LED screens that help to immerse the guests in the show.
In this show, Thanos manipulates the Avengers to fight each other instead of protecting humanity. Characters like Iron Man, Captain America and Black Widow make their appearance. There is a special role in this stunt show for drones, for example when the heroes make a car fly.
The show will be performed five times a day in the weekends and three times a day on weekdays. If you want to see a preview, you can watch the second livestream of the evening that has the first scene in it.
Stark Expo presents: Energy for Tomorrow
In this short show on the stage in front of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Tony Stark (Iron Man) wants to present a new technological innovation he developed. Loki appears and steals the attention of the audience, but luckily, Black Widow, Spider-Man and Thor can stop him. This show is performed three times a day.
Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Dance-Off
Who thinks of Guardians-films, must think of the great soundtrack full of music from the eighties. Because this musical theme is so strong, Peter Quill (Star-Lord) and Gamora got their own stage for a dance-off. These two characters invite guests to join them during this celebration of music. This show is performed six times a day.

Heroic Encounter: Meet Captain America
During the Marvel Summer of Super Heroes, Captain America will use some spare time (you can not always save the world) to meet fans. Guests can reserve a time on the Lineberty app to meet this hero.
He was also there at the opening event, were he was spotted by @ED92live:

Of course, there will also be snacks like cupcakes, and cookies themed to Groot and the shield of Captain America. There are also some special sippers, like the one of the Infinity Gauntlet, that are already very popular!

Especially after the success of Avengers: Infinity War, this season could become a great hit for Disneyland Paris. What do you think about all the new offerings?
