Avengers Campus in California to open in 2021
Now, D23 has confirmed that it will open in 2021, although there is no exact opening date yet. Construction on the campus resumed in August 2020.
Avengers Campus will feature WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, the first Disney ride-through attraction featuring Spider-Man. Guests will sling webs and collect Spider-Bots as they put themselves into Spider-Man’s shoes.
At the Pym Test Kitchen, guests will be able to enjoy food from Pym Technologies, who have experimented with growing and shrinking food.
The immersive expansion to Disneyland California Adventure will also feature Marvel characters like Black Widow, Ant-Man, Iron Man and more.
D23 also confirmed that the recently reimagined Snow White’s Enchanted Wish ride is ready to open when Disneyland Resort reopens.
New attractions to open in EPCOT
At Walt Disney World in EPCOT, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will open in 2021 in the French pavilion. This attraction sees guests shrink down to the size of a rat and join Remy in an adventure around Gusteay’s restaurant.
The new nighttime show Harmonious will also start in 2021. The show was originally meant to debut in 2020, however, this was pushed back. It will be Disney’s largest nighttime spectacular, and will feature floating set pieces in the World Showcase lagoon.
There is still no opening date for the new Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind attraction or the TRON Lightcycle at Walt Disney World.
