Most of the Backlot area is closed except for Restaurant Des Stars, which will eventually become an Ant-Man themed eatery. Behind the walls, we can see work continuing on the Spider-Man attraction. The Armageddon attraction was completely leveled for this new addition.
This is the very same Spider-Man ride that is also being build at Disney California Adventure, but it is set to open next year there.
Guests heading to this side of the park are greeted by construction walls and directional signage. We saw many, many guests go down this way thinking they were going to ride Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster, only to realize it was gone when they walked into a dead end.
You are practically in an active construction zone when you walk down here. Pieces of concrete were being lifted into place just feet away from us while we waited to be seated at the restaurant.
Restaurant des Stars remains open, even though the canopy was ripped off.
I wanted to film a time-lapse of guests going up to these walls and turning around, but I was short on time. You get the idea from this picture of confused guests though.
