Alright Disney, I literally cannot be in two places at the same time. With Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Guardians of the Galaxy-Mission: Breakout! at Disney California Adventure both opening on May 27th, I’ll need some super-hero powers to be on both coasts at the same time. I knew I should have invested in cloning technology.
The opening at DCA will kick-off a Summer of Heroes promotion that will run through September 10. The inaugural event includes an ever-expanding universe of Super Hero stories at Disney California Adventure that will become even bigger over time. Guests in Hollywood Land will join some favorite Super Heroes for all-new, epic experiences for a limited time.
“It’s going to be a thrilling summer at the Disneyland Resort,” said David Duffy, Director, Creative Entertainment. “You can celebrate the arrival of Guardians of the Galaxy–Mission BREAKOUT! and join forces with legendary Super Heroes. You can choose an awesome encounter with Star-Lord, Black Widow, Spider-Man, Hawkeye or Captain America, step up to meet Groot for the first time, and find out if you have what it takes to join the Avengers. It’s all part of the adventure with Summer of Heroes.”
Summer of Heroes will launch new, year-round experiences:
- Guardians of the Galaxy–Mission: BREAKOUT! – This new adventure blasts guests straight into the “Guardians of the Galaxy” story for the first time, alongside characters from the blockbuster films and comics. As guests join Rocket in his attempt to bust his pals out of the Collector’s Fortress, they’ll experience randomized ride experiences complete with all-new visual and audio effects and music inspired by the popular film soundtracks.
- Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off! – Star-Lord will fire up his old-school boom box to get a party started. Everyone is bound to get in the groove and show off their moves during this awesome rock ‘n’ roll bash!
- Super Hero Encounters – For the first time, citizens of Earth will come face-to-face with tree-of-few-words Groot, one of the Guardians of the Galaxy! They may also encounter the First Avenger, Captain America, and everyone’s favorite web-slinger, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
For a limited time, guests also will discover more new adventures, exclusive to Summer of Heroes:
- Avengers Training Initiative – Black Widow and Hawkeye assemble young recruits for a series of tests to see if they have what it takes to join the ranks of the Avengers.
- Heroic Encounter: Black Widow – Black Widow will arrive on the scene several times throughout the day in an armored Avengers vehicle for her heroic encounter with park guests.
- Grab a Piece (or Bite) of the Action – Special themed merchandise and food will be available throughout Hollywood Land.
