PHOTOS: Giant Cars Land Tarp Hides Avengers Campus Construction, Portions of Spider-Man Facade Revealed at Disney California Adventure

We are mere months away from the first phase of the MARVEL Avengers Campus land opening to guests at Disney California Adventure, and work has taken on a feverish pace. Efforts are also now underway to fix the sight-line devastation in Cars Land. Let’s take a look…

The left side of Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree is currently closed for refurbishment, but the right side is running.

From here, we can see the WEB Industries building, home to the Spider-Man ride.

With the added walls at Mater’s, the main thoroughfare of California Adventure is pretty uninviting right now.

This is what you’ll walk through exiting Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree.

Posts are going up along the fences at Mater’s Junkyard, leading us to believe that something is being erected to block views of the Avengers Campus. I hope it is something sensible, because a taller fence isn’t going to look any better. Behind the posts in the above pics is WEB Suppliers.

They posts stretch all the way down the perimeter of the ride.

From the exit, we can see that the work on the WEB Industries facade is nearing completion. The strange mechanical crane on the roof seems to be complete.

Over at Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters, the exposed steel structure that might be part of the Avengers E-Ticket attraction has been masked temporarily by a giant tarp with Cars Land facades. It’s all off-scale, stretched out, and repeats facade from the Main Street of the town, but I guess it’s better than the metal framework. It is also (likely) temporary.

From Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout, we see progress on the Pym Test Kitchen.

  1. The crane has to be the pull mechanism for the flying Spider-Man we have seen tested by Disney Imagineering R&D.

  2. Tom (or anyone else who has some ideas) – Given the Avenger’s land buildings aren’t going anywhere at this point, what would your best case scenario be for hiding them from sight in Cars Land? Cars Land Themed Billboards? Paint (hopefully not). Just wondering if you have anything in mind…

  3. Did you guys actually think that they were not going to do something about the backstage building being erected behind Luigi’s Or that they would not add a themed wall and greenery against the mater attraction?

    Mater already had walls around portion of ti and has props themed to the junkyard, they will just a bit taller and will have added landscape on both sides and will work just as the walls behind Luigi’s kept the backstage from view
