PHOTO REPORT: Disney California Adventure 6/4/21 (Avengers Campus Opening, Riding WEB SLINGERS A Spider-Man Adventure, Entertainment and Character Meet &Greets, Full Menu Reviews, and More)

Avengers, it’s finally time to assemble. Avengers Campus officially opened at Disney California Adventure on June 4th, 2021. We spent opening day exploring the new land, taking a ride on WEB SLINGERS A Spider-Man Adventure with new WEB Tech add-ons, visiting with characters, watching live entertainment, and of course, trying all the food. Join us on our first trip to Avengers Campus! 

Avengers Campus Opening Day

Since the land has limited capacity with a standby wait to enter, we played it safe and arrived at Disneyland Resort around 5am. We waited at the Harbor Pedestrian Entrance; this is the best option if you want to secure access into Avengers Campus in the morning.

By 7:45am, guests were making their way towards Disney California Adventure.

Once we entered, we picked up our new commemorative map and ticket. Our ticket featured Captain Marvel flying over Avengers Campus.

WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure

WEB Slingers

Worldwide Engineering Brigade (WEB) is now hosting an open house in Avengers Campus, so we can finally join Spider-Man for an amazing adventure. WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure is the brand-new flagship ride for Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure, and its finally our turn.

We were lucky enough to snag group 14 at the 7am boarding group distribution on the Disneyland app. There is a second distribution at noon. A boarding group for this attraction will allow you access into the land without waiting in the standby line.

Watch our POV walkthrough and ride on WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, then keep reading for photos and more details. Our video includes us using the infamous WEB Tech “add-ons” that are sold in Avengers Campus as well.

WEB Slingers

Personally, I thought the preshow room probably carried the most kinetic energy. Spider-Bots running through vents, Tom Holland guiding us on how to save Avengers Campus, and a few good effects. Sadly, I don’t think this energy shifted onto the actual attraction. With basically no practical sets, no Audio-Animatronics, and no unique ride system, it felt mundane. I didn’t get off this ride, wondering when I’ll be able to get back on the next time. I know Disney is capable of making memorable attractions as it was just done at Disneyland last year with Rise of the Resistance. I don’t think this attraction is the highlight of Avengers Campus. Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! is right across the campus, was a walk-on all day, and significantly more entertaining and immersive. 

WEB Slingers

You can use WEB Tech add-ons to try for a higher score and different “blasts” on this interactive attraction. That being said, they are heavy and we didn’t feel like they particularly enhanced the ride.

We slung enough webs for the day, back to the campus.

Character Meet & Greets

Black Panther

 Assembled superheroes are taking time from their busy days to stop and chat with guests. Take a look at all the heroes we ran into here.

Iron Man Avengers Campus

At almost all times, there is a character out somewhere. Black Widow and Loki seemed to be out the most.

Quite the crowd.

Live Entertainment

Black Panther Show Avengers Campus

The elite royal guard of Wakanda is making an appearance in Avengers Campus in a small show. Three of the Dora Milaje, as seen in Black Panther and subsequent Marvel media, march through the land to present their skills and interact with the crowd. Watch the full show here. This was a great entertainment option in Avengers Campus and it was great to see performers interacting with guests again.

Avengers Stunt Show

Next, the Avengers Stunt Show. It is performed on the side of the Avengers headquarters and debuted with Black Widow and Black Panther leading the action.

Guardians of the Galaxy Dance Show

Even the Guardians of the Galaxy made a comeback with Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off! returning.

We spotted Spider-Man swinging around at the WEB building in his new stunt show. Check out the full show here.

Dr Strange Avengers Campus

Night has fallen on the Avengers Campus, and strange things are afoot at the Ancient Sanctum. Dr. Strange, to be precise. The Sorcerer Supreme stars in a show, and we caught photos and a full video to share with you.

Dr Strange Avengers Campus
Dr Strange Avengers Campus

This show is the most popular in the land. Only 13 groups can enter the sanctum per show and they run about once an hour. If this is a priority for you, make sure to check the line frequently. Guests gather by the door to get a peek in while the show is running.

Dining in Avengers Campus

Pym Test Kitchen Avengers Campus

We swung over to main restaurant in Avengers Campus, Pym Test Kitchen. This quick-service restaurant has “size-defying” meals inspired by Ant-Man and The Wasp. We tried both the breakfast and lunch menus from this location.

Mobile ordering times were gone entirely before 10am. I cannot emphasize enough to prioritize mobile ordering in the morning. It is now asked that guests only order in the land, but there’s a possibility they could all be taken by the time you even enter Avengers Campus. If you know trying the new food is important to you, I recommend waiting early in the morning to enter the land and make all your orders immediately after you enter. There are no standby lines for food.

Pym's Test Kitchen

Next door is the Pym Tasting Lab, where you can mobile order alcoholic beverages. A giant smartphone displays the menu.

Pym Test Kitchen Avengers Campus

There is lots of open space inside.

Sadly the belt that carries the pretzels through the restaurant was broken already, so we couldn’t see it in action.

First things first, breakfast.

We tried the Impossible™ Quantum Garden Breakfast, Calculated Breakfast = E x 2 + (B+P)/T, and Ever-expanding Cinna-Pym Toast.

 We’ve worked up a Quantum-sized appetite running around Avengers Campus, so we tried everything from the lunch/dinner menu at Pym Test Kitchen.

The Choco-Smash CANDY Bar is fantastic and one of my favorites.

To refresh ourselves while out in the California sun today at Avengers Campus, we stopped by Pym Tasting Lab to try out a few new drinks. Read our full review here.

We decided to drop by Shawarma Palace for a lunch break.

This entire land is just people waiting around for mobile orders or boarding groups to be called, all while wearing a giant red hand with a soda bottle, and no one leaves because you can’t get back in.

Terrans Treats

After breakfast and drinks, we stopped by Terran Treats to try out the new offerings for us Earthlings. Taneleer Tivan (A.K.A. The Collector), has curated this menu which features two sweet items along with several different standard beverages to choose from.

I think this land comes to life at night, but out of every different themed area at Disneyland Resort, Avengers Campus is missing that magic. Walking into Galaxy’s Edge is an entirely different experience than walking into Avengers Campus; you feel something in Batuu. I’m sure the land will grow to be more charming as it gets settled into Disney California Adventure but opening day left me saying “eh” with no excitement to come back. We are under different circumstances, making the experience a little more challenging such as boarding groups, mobile ordering, and standby lines to enter the land. As time goes on, I hope to see Avengers Campus grow and become a unique experience in Disney California Adventure.

I was at the opening day too! You were very lucky to make it in early, we waited 3.5 hours before they said we can enter with a mobile order (which I did right away). It’s honestly what I expected. Avenger’s Campus looks too modern but I think it has potential to grow. The Web Slinger’s ride was too similar to Midway Mania. The numerous character meet and greets were the highlight for me. Disney really should have done something to ensure everyone got a chance to come into the land instead of them wasting all that time in line.… Read more »
