BREAKING: MARVEL Avengers Campus Opening Delayed at Disney California Adventure

While Disney had previously announced that Avengers Campus in Disney California Adventure would open on July 18th, 2020, it seems extended park closures and construction halts have hindered the new land’s progress. All official verbiage now says “Coming Soon” as opposed to the previously-announced opening date.

The landing page for Avengers Campus now simply shows “Coming Soon.” The big opening date announcement was made just days before Disneyland Resort had to close due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

As we’ve previously shared, this campus is set up by the Avengers to recruit the next generation of Super Heroes. Do note that this now-delayed opening only applies to Phase One of the MARVEL-themed land. Phase Two, which is to include the confirmed Avengers E-ticket attraction that was announced during this year’s D23 Expo, is still a few years away, if not also delayed.

Avengers Campus is home to the Worldwide Engineering Brigade – also known as “WEB” – which will house a new Spider-Man experience, the first Disney ride-through attraction to feature this iconic Super Hero.

During an open house at WEB, the aspiring inventors are excited to invite you for a test drive of their latest invention: the “Web Slinger” vehicle, which allows you to sling webs just like Spider-Man! The attraction gives you a taste of what it’s like to have actual super powers as you help Spider-Man collect Spider-Bots that have run amok.

Avengers Campus will also feature Pym Test Kitchen. Just as Ant-Man and The Wasp use “Pym Particles” to grow and shrink just about anything, Pym Technologies is using the latest innovations to grow and shrink food at this eatery.

You will also find heroic encounters throughout the campus, including Black Widow, Ant-Man and The Wasp, Doctor Strange, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Super Heroes from Wakanda and Asgard, and Iron Man.

As Super Heroes continue to assemble at the campus, one of its iconic buildings will be the Avengers Headquarters where you should be on the lookout for Avengers in action.
