Similarly, are Avengers at Disneyland?
Avengers Campus is a featured land inside Disney California Adventure at the Disneyland Resort. Avengers Campus stands on the lot that was formerly “a bug’s land”. This thrilling new land connects to the previously operating Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!
Similarly one may ask, can you meet Iron Man at Disneyland?
Avengers Campus officially opened at Disney California Adventure in Disneyland Resort on June 4, 2021.
Does Avengers Campus cost extra?
No separate ticket is necessary to gain access to Avengers Campus, but getting into Avengers Campus does require some planning and perhaps a superhero power or two. First, you need to purchase a theme park ticket for Disneyland.
On August 28, 2009, The Walt Disney Company (Universal’s largest rival in the theme park market) agreed to purchase Marvel Entertainment for $4 billion. The deal was finalized on December 31, 2009 in which Disney acquired full ownership on the company.
To control the amount of people inside of the area, Disney currently has two ways to get into the campus: 1) Getting a boarding group for WEB-SLINGERS or 2) Waiting in a standby line adjacent to the entrance of the land. Heroes assemble!
In late December 2020, Disney announced that Avengers Campus was scheduled to open in 2021. Due to a 1994 contract with Universal Parks & Resorts, Disney cannot use the “Marvel” name in the park’s branding or attractions. In April 2021, Disney announced that the area would open on June 4, 2021.
However, eagle-eyed viewers will have spotted that the slick Avengers headquarters is in fact The Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts which is located in the grounds of UEA.
Universal Studios obtained the theme park rights for Marvel in 1994 when the comic book company was in dire financial issues. When Disney acquired Marvel in 2009, CEO Bob Iger acknowledged these rights and stated that the deal still stands as long as Universal continues paying royalty checks to Marvel.
