      Looks like fun, though I still can't shake the comparisons to Ninjago here in Legoland or even Midway Mania just around the corner from this attraction. The tech sounds like it will be more advanced than either but drawing comparisons will still be hard for me to shake. I'm more excited about the Wakanda E-ticket they're building. I'll reserve judgement for Spidey when it opens but right now I can't say I'm too thrilled. I'd put money on Islands of Adventure's Spidey attraction being better in the end but I would love to be proven wrong.

      Lots of characters and a stunt show, that's good. Hopefully the stunt show can hang in there a while. I'm not worried about losing the Marvel characters since they're easier and they've been doing them for a long time now over in Hollywoodland.

      I love the "gag factory" type vibe I'm getting from the pretzel machine in the Pym kitchen, that's great.

      In the end, if I lived out of state or farther away; I wouldn't say what I'm seeing seems like a reason for me to book a trip down to DCA specifically to see this, yet. But like I said; I'd love to be proven wrong and I'm sure there will be plenty of folks who enjoy it.

        It's cool something new is coming to the park. it is just sad it seems very underwhelming for something with a Marvel attachment. They should already be building the marquee attraction for the area. Of course with the COVID-19 going around I can understand that they wouldn't start on it now.
        These are some of my favorite TRs I have posted

        DL 55th BDAY trip report
        My company had a special night at the park
        WdW trip report with WWoHP
        NYE 2011 trip report
        Mice Chat 7th anniversary
        Leap year 24 hour report
        New DCA trip report
        NYE 2012
        HKDL trip report

          You mean the Wakanda E-ticket they've announced plans to build?

          I'll believe it's actually happening when I see a ground-breaking ceremony publicity photo of Chapek in an Iron Man hard hat holding a shovel that looks like Thor's hammer (or whatever). Especially given the rumors that MMRR construction is on hold in Toontown, my gut is that it could be a LONG time before that Marvel E-ticket breaks ground, much less opens.

            You've got me there, I should have phrased that better. Hopefully it happens, my gut feeling is that it will.

            I don't have much info regarding MMRR here in Toontown.. do we have confirmation that Disney has completely halted work on it and other things? I'm not questioning Westsiders credibility (I have spoken to him through private messages and those exchanges prove to me that he definitely has contacts on the inside) but I do think that information tends to get diluted when it's passed down the grape vine once or twice. He's generally accurate but still painting with broad brush strokes, I feel. Information discrepancies will happen from time to time. So we've got an insider here who claims that virtually everything has stopped, meanwhile we have a CM reporting refurbishments are still moving forward and members on other sites are linking Disneyland vlogger videos that apparently show that construction work on the MMRR site has not halted (yet). I would watch these videos for myself to confirm but I don't care for the vloggers in question, haha.

              We just got back from Legoland and we went on the Ninjago ride twice. I absolutely HATED the gesture based firing set-up, it totally sucks. It’s a shame that Disney is going with that for this new Spider-man attraction.

                I've been vocal about my opinions on the Spiderman ride in other threads, so I won't add to the pile-on here. However, the stunt show is interesting.

                I am absolutely terrified that COVID-19 will soon infect the U.S. parks' bottom lines and lead to cuts all over, starting with the stunt show. Galaxy's Edge was so obviously built for a stunt show, with proper fall protections, firework mounts, and even a booth from which to operate the effects. And yet here we are, only seeing it once. Seeing something like this every day/night would be great. Personally I think it would be better use of resources than Mickey and the Magical Map, which should be replaced by ride (RIP Videopolis).

                With that said, the food I've seen out of the Pym test kitchen looks great. I'm glad I got an AP when I did so I can enjoy this land for a few months before ignoring DCA for another couple years.

                I say this as someone who absolutely hates that we're getting a screen-based Spiderman ride: hopefully Imagineering has improved on Ninjago enough that it is workable. Maybe instead of sliding your hand back and forth it can just always be outstretched while they scan to see if your hand is making the web-shooting gesture? If that's not the case and it's a lot of back and forth movement this ride will be a skip for me after the first couple times. TSMM is already a "sometimes" because it is just so physically exhausting and I am the competitive type. But oh do I wish they would just get rid of the screens.

                  A Disney YouTuber that also follows construction (mostly Marvel) has video confirming MMRR construction activity continues.

                      With innovative technology designed to interact with guest movements, the new experience debuts at Disney California Adventure Park July 18, 2020


                      ANAHEIM, Calif. (March 11, 2020) – Super Hero fans and their pals will soon discover what it’s like to sling a web and have super powers at WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, an interactive, high-tech attraction in the new land of Avengers Campus, opening July 18, 2020, at the Disneyland Resort, inside Disney California Adventure Park.

                      Avengers Campus is an entirely new land dedicated to discovering, recruiting and training the next generation of heroes. Families and friends are empowered to take an active role alongside some of their favorite heroes to live out Super Hero dreams in a fully immersive land that mixes innovative technology with fun for all ages.

                      Avengers Campus will bring together Earth’s Mightiest Heroes for the common good, and they are calling all fans to join the action: Team up with the Avengers and their allies throughout the land, and sling webs like Spider-Man on the all-new attraction, WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure.

                      The doors to Avengers Campus welcome all Avengers, their allies, and new recruits. The site, formerly a Stark Industries complex, was offered up by Tony Stark as a place to train the next generation of Super Heroes. The once restricted and secret complex has been rebuilt and is comprised of several distinct and diverse heroic spaces.

                      One of the Campus addresses is home to WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure. Thrown into the action, guests are invited to put their web-slinging skills to the test. The mission: team up with Spidey and help capture the out-of-control Spider-Bots before they wreak havoc on the Campus. In this mission, guests will sling webs like Spider-Man and experience what it’s like to have super powers, a feat accomplished with innovative technology created specifically for this attraction.

                      A blend of physical, fully dimensional sets and virtual environments will take recruits on this interactive escapade, which includes animation, moving props and special effects. There is no height requirement for this attraction, allowing young aspiring heroes to join the action.

                      “We’re going to give you super powers,” said Brent Strong, executive creative director at Walt Disney Imagineering. “There’s not a kid who has read a comic or watched a TV show or a movie who hasn’t walked away wishing they could sling webs, and we’re going to make that happen for every single guest. The new technology can render a virtual web coming directly out of your wrist and into that world without touching an interface. It’s as close to being Spider-Man as you can get.”

                      Innovative technology interacts with guest movements

                      The adventure begins at Avengers Campus’ Worldwide Engineering Brigade – or WEB as the kids call it – a workshop of young engineers who specialize in developing innovative technologies to equip and empower a new generation of Super Heroes. This workshop showcases the inventions of Peter Parker and the rest of the WEB Tech team, including their adorable Spider-Bots which are designed to be robotic sidekicks capable of building anything a Super Hero might need. When Peter’s demonstration goes awry, the Spider-Bots are stuck in a replication loop, creating even more Spider-Bots. Mayhem ensues and guests become brave recruits. Donning 3D glasses, guests test-drive the aspiring inventor’s latest invention, the WEB Slinger vehicle, and discover their web-slinging super powers.

                      Through specially designed, innovative technology that recognizes body movements and gestures, guests will reach out their hands and sling webs from their wrists, just like Spider-Man. As the WEB Slinger vehicles progress, guests will virtually pass through several other Campus addresses including Pym Test Kitchen, Avengers Headquarters and the Collector’s Fortress, also known as Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! As the mission continues, Spider-Bots will become harder and harder to beat as they continue to multiply.

                      After helping Spider-Man wrangle the rogue Spider-Bots, guests will be able to see how many Spider-Bots they caught as a team in their vehicles.

                      Elsewhere around the Worldwide Engineering Brigade, guests may see Spider-Man as he takes to the skies high above Avengers Campus with gravity-defying, acrobatic feats never seen before in a Disney park. Following those stunning moves, Spider-Man will swing down off the building to ground level to meet up and say hello to “new recruits.”
                      We need another Walt...and fast!

                        Guests at Disney California Adventure Park will join the action at Avengers Campus, where Spider-Man flies across the sky for the first time and ‘recruits’ find their powers on the new, family-friendly attraction, WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure featuring actor Tom Holland

                        Avengers are seeking ‘recruits’ of all ages to team up with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes; Iron Man debuts a new suit of armor, Doctor Strange brings the mystic arts to an ancient Sanctum, and Ant-Man and The Wasp plus the villain Taskmaster appear for the first time at the Disneyland Resort


                        ANAHEIM, Calif. (March 11, 2020) – Avengers Campus, an entirely new land dedicated to discovering, recruiting and training the next generation of heroes, will open July 18, 2020 at the Disneyland Resort, inside Disney California Adventure Park. Guests who are lifelong fans of Super Heroes and those discovering them for the first time are invited to team up with the Avengers and their allies to live out their Super Hero dreams in this fully immersive land that mixes innovative technology and fun for all ages.

                        Avengers Campus brings together Earth’s Mightiest Heroes for the common good, and they’re calling all recruits to join the action: Team up with the Avengers and their allies; sling webs with Spider-Man, taste-test inventive food and drinks and become part of a bigger universe. Kids and guests of all ages will find their powers as they unite with family and friends to take an active role alongside some of their favorite heroes, with a chance to live out their own heroic story.

                        Guests will have the chance to witness Spider-Man swinging into action high above Avengers Campus with gravity-defying, acrobatic feats never seen before in a Disney park. That may inspire them to experience the new attraction, WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, which takes guests on an interactive escapade. And that’s just the beginning of the fun. Families and friends will train with Black Panther and Wakanda’s elite guards, the Dora Milaje; team up to save The Guardians of the Galaxy from The Collector’s Fortress; encounter heroes (and villains), and experience the thrills as Avengers hold off their foes and save the day. Those seeking provisions for their next mission will find them at Pym Test Kitchen.

                        While exploring Avengers Campus, recruits may encounter Iron Man in his new armor, the Mark 80, revealed for the first time at a Disney park. Ant-Man and The Wasp appear for the first time at the Disneyland Resort and Doctor Strange will train recruits in the ways of the mystic arts at an ancient Sanctum. The villain Taskmaster also debuts at Avengers Campus, and Black Widow, Black Panther, Thor, The Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America and Captain Marvel are among those joining the action.

                        “When we set out to create these extraordinary Super Hero experiences across the globe, we designed a new Spider-Man attraction for Disney California Adventure park in an immersive land with amazing character experiences,” said Scot Drake, portfolio creative executive for Walt Disney Imagineering. “We also crafted an original story that ties all the experiences together in ways that are authentic to these characters. We worked side-by-side with teams that brought the Avengers films and comics to life to create a place that champions the next generation of heroes.”

                        “Avengers Campus will be a place where fans and guests can finally step into the universe they love, and stand alongside some of their favorite heroes,” said Dave Bushore, vice president of Franchise Creative & Marketing for Marvel Studios. “The optimism inherent in Avengers Campus captures the diversity, power and teamwork these extraordinary characters possess, and now they come together to unite people from all over the world under one guiding principle: We are stronger together.”

                        Step into a new place in the universe

                        The doors to Avengers Campus welcome all Avengers, their allies, and new recruits. Tony Stark offered up the site, formerly one of his father’s Stark Industries complexes, as a place to train the next generation of Super Heroes.

                        The story of the land unfolds with authentic detail as Avengers Campus is comprised of several heroic locations, each hosted by a different Avenger or their ally to share their unique powers, technology and knowledge with recruits. Optimistic and forward-looking, these represent galactic spaces, mystic places, modern architecture and sleek technology.

                        The first key address is the Worldwide Engineering Brigade – also known as WEB. It brings together bright innovators like Peter Parker who have been assembled by Tony Stark to invent new technologies and equip everyday people to become heroes. WEB is home to the new WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, the first Disney ride-through attraction to feature this iconic Super Hero.

                        Avengers Headquarters is the heart of the land, an iconic building where guests may catch a glimpse of the Avengers springing into action ready to save the day.

                        Sling webs with Spider-Man and unite with the Guardians of the Galaxy

                        Tom Holland will reprise his role as Spider-Man in the land’s new attraction, WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure. This new, action-packed adventure invites guests to put their web-slinging skills to the test, a feat accomplished with innovative technology adapted specifically for this attraction. The mission: team up with Spidey and help capture the out-of-control Spider-Bots before they wreak havoc on the Campus. During an open house at WEB, Peter Parker and the aspiring inventors ask guests to wear 3D glasses and test drive their latest invention, the WEB Slinger vehicle, which allows them to sling webs like Spider-Man and experience what it’s like to have super powers.

                        This family-friendly attraction blends physical sets and virtual environments to take new recruits on an interactive escapade. There is no height requirement for this attraction, allowing aspiring young heroes to join the fun.

                        Looming high above the land is the towering citadel of Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!, a fan-favorite that opened in Disney California Adventure in 2017. Guests are the protagonists of this rockin’ adventure as they help rescue a cosmic gang of misfits. Taneleer Tivan, a.k.a. the Collector, has brought his unique collection of fantastical fauna, relics and species from across the cosmos to Earth. To their misfortune, Star-Lord, Gamora, Rocket, Drax and Groot were recently made a part of Tivan’s “collection” and are being held captive within his Fortress. It takes some raucous mayhem, music inspired by the soundtracks from the movies and thrilling free-fall drop sequences for this adventure to break out the Guardians.

                        For the first time: Taskmaster, Ant-Man and The Wasp join a land full of heroes

                        Throughout Avengers Campus, Super Heroes come to life in ways that are more exciting than ever.

                        At Avengers Headquarters, guests have a chance to witness epic action as Captain America, Black Panther or Black Widow face their villainous foes. Or, they may see Spider-Man defying gravity as he flips 60 to 65 feet in the air above the rooftop of the WEB building. Following those stunning moves, Spider-Man will swing down off the building to ground level to meet up and say hello to new recruits.

                        New recruits at Avengers Campus may have heroic encounters with Iron Man in his new armor, Captain Marvel, Ant-Man and The Wasp, Doctor Strange, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther and Thor, some of whom are making their first appearances at the park. Loki gets into mischief, and Groot continues to roam near the Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!

                        The villainous Taskmaster, who will have a role in the upcoming film “Black Widow,” is seen for the first time at a Disney park at Avengers Campus. Taskmaster’s abilities include photographic reflexes. Taskmaster can replicate Super Hero moves, making this new villain a balanced foe for the Campus heroes.

                        Recruits can train with Black Panther’s loyal bodyguards, the Dora Milaje, to learn wisdom from Wakanda and what it’s like to be a member of this elite royal guard. Okoye, the leader of the Dora Milaje, also debuts for the first time in a Disney park as she leads this training encounter.

                        Exploring the overgrown ruins of an ancient Sanctum, guests can learn mysterious secrets from Doctor Strange and discover ancient, magical artifacts. Doctor Strange will train recruits in the ways of the mystic arts by bringing this ancient Sanctum to life with powerful spells. At night, the Sanctum glows even more vividly with majestic colors and lights, pulsating with mystic energy.

                        Pym Particles produce tiny treats and big bites

                        When it is time to take a break from the heroics, three new dining spots will offer sustenance.

                        Pym Test Kitchen: Just as Ant-Man and The Wasp usedPym Particles” to grow and shrink just about anything, the Pym Test Kitchen applies this innovative science to the food creation. This unbound potential allows Pym Test Kitchen to showcase normal foods at unusual scales, including shareable bites, inventive-sized entrees and tiny treats. As guests watch the Pym food scientists at work in the kitchen lab, they will see a conveyor belt transport a regular-sized pretzel into a quantum tunnel – and it comes out big!

                        Guests will be able to taste-test foods like the Impossible™ plant-based large and micro meatballs with pasta served in a super-sized spoon with a tiny fork. Another choice is the “Pym-ini,” a panini on toasted focaccia with meats, cheese and marinara dipping sauce, which can be served by the slice or as a long, multi-portion sandwich. Those will go well with a glass of Pingo Doce, the distinctly green beverage from Avenger lore that will be available at Avengers Campus.

                        Gigantic soda cans and condiment bottles will be mounted in the vestibules so diners can tap into their accompaniments. Outdoor seating is a great place to watch for Super Heroes as they may be nearby taking on a challenge from Taskmaster.

                        Pym Tasting Lab: Adjacent to the Pym Test Kitchen, an oversized beer can overhead signals that grown-up beverages are available at Pym Tasting Lab. Guests may order a craft beer, ranging from a blood orange hefeweizen to an amber lager. These are poured from a reverse draft system where, thanks to the food scientists, the glass fills from the bottom up. Those thirsting for a beer cocktail will have four to choose from, along with bite-sized snacks.

                        Shawarma Palace: Fans may recall that after the Battle of New York, the exhausted Avengers took Tony Stark up on his offer to try the food at the “shawarma joint” about two blocks from the battle zone. There at Shawarma Palace, the Avengers discovered their new favorite food. The Avengers loved the food so much that when it came time to build Avengers Campus, they invited the Shawarma Palace crew to open a second location at Avengers Campus. Now, guests and heroes on the go can enjoy their favorite shawarma-inspired snacks at this food cart, which is decked out with memorabilia for Avenger fans. This cart offers hand-held savory wraps with fragrant chicken shawarma and garlic sauce. Or, guests may choose the Impossible™ plant-based falafel wrap.

                        Terran Treats: Taneleer Tivan did not limit his collection to lovable misfits; he is also curating a weird and wonderful menu of intergalactic eats at this food cart near Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! Churro spirals with unique flavors, and a cosmic orb with an outer shell revealing a decadent creamy filling, are just a few takes on what concoctions he has conceived to lure guests to his Fortress.

                        The latest in Spider-Bot prototypes

                        At the WEB Suppliers store, guests may find just what aspiring WEB members need, including swag to show off some WEB pride, items to tinker with at home and something every hero needs – a friendly sidekick. Interactive Spider-Bots, much like the ones seen throughout Avengers Campus, are powered by a remote control with eight articulated legs that move forward and backward. Guests may customize their Spider-Bot with tactical upgrades to harness the powers and style of some of their favorite Super Heroes including Black Panther, Iron Man and Black Widow, as well as Ant-Man and The Wasp. Guests may also connect with their friends’ Spider-Bots for epic showdowns.

                        Other must-have items at WEB Suppliers include a specially-designed backpack to carry and show Spider-Bots when they are not in action, stylish Spider-Man goggles that light up and interact with their surroundings, a Spider-Man action figure that interacts with mini Spider-Bots, Web-shooters that come to life with lights and sounds, a take-home spider web kit and Funko Pop! vinyl figurines of Spider-Man and Iron Man.

                        The Campus Supply Pod is the place to power up with official Avengers Campus gear including performance fleece hoodies and tees, headwear, drinkware and other Super Hero supplies.
