Know Before You Go: Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure

By: Disney Destinations

In just a few days, Guests will be invited to team up with the Avengers and their allies to live out their Super Hero dreams as Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure park opens on June 4.

Avengers Campus is comprised of several heroic locations, each hosted by a different Super Hero or their ally to share their unique powers, technology and knowledge with recruits. However, there’s a lot we still need to go over and we’re here to help you prepare for your mission!

Here is everything you need to know as you plan your visit to Avengers Campus:

Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure Park in Anaheim, California, invites guests of all ages into a new land where they can sling webs on the first Disney ride-through attraction to feature Spider-Man. The immersive land also presents multiple heroic encounters with Avengers and their allies, like Iron Man, Black Panther, Black Widow and more. At Pym Test Kitchen, food scientists will utilize Ant-Man and The Wasp’s shrinking and growing technology to serve up perfectly sized snacks. (Christian Thompson/Disneyland Resort)

Theme Park Reservations and Tickets

First up, all recruits planning to visit Avengers Campus will need both a park reservation and valid ticket for Disney California Adventure park on the same date. Theme park reservations are limited due to capacity limitations and will be subject to availability, so be sure to plan out your mission before they head over.  

Avengers Campus Access

When Avengers Campus opens, Guests will be able to enter at the main entrance located right next to the Worldwide Engineering Brigade (also known as WEB), just past Carthay Circle Restaurant and across from Golden Vine Winery. 

There are two ways to gain access into Avengers Campus: Guests can either use the standby queue, or the virtual queue* option for WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure. Here’s how each option works:

  • Standby queue:When Avengers Campus reaches capacity, a standby queue to enter Avengers Campus will be available to the right of its main entrance by the Worldwide Engineering Brigade (WEB) for those looking to take in the sights and sounds of Avengers Campus.
  • Virtual queue for WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure:In order to experience WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, Guests are required to join the virtual queue, which is accessible via the Disneyland mobile app.** There is no standby line for this attraction. Similar to Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, virtual queue enrollment times will be twice daily, at 7 a.m. (which Guests can do from the comfort of their home or hotel room) and 12 p.m. To learn the details of how the system will work, visit this page for more information. Once a Guest’s boarding group is called, they should head to the left of the land’s main entrance along the parade corridor. Guests may enjoy Avengers Campus after their boarding group has been called and they have entered the land.

Disneyland and Play Disney Parks Apps

Alright recruits, it’s time to get tech savvy! As always, we highly recommend that Guests download the latest version of the Disneyland app on their mobile device prior to their visit.

Guests will be able to use the app to join the virtual queue for WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, place a mobile order for food and beverages, view park maps and more. Guests should be sure to have location services and Bluetooth enabled and turn on notifications to receive their virtual queue call back details and other important information.

Also, the new PhotoPass+ One Day** is a limited-time offer available through the Disneyland app. Guests can capture and share their unforgettable moments at Avengers Campus with unlimited downloads from the day of their visit!

If Guests are fans of the Play Disney Parks app***, they can also enhance their experience with interactive moments throughout Avengers Campus. They can discover new in-app experiences, like Avengers Campus trivia, plus land-based and attraction digital achievements!

Heroic Encounters

Spider-Man takes to the skies high above Avengers Campus, where Guests may also have heroic encounters with the likes of Iron Man, Black Panther, the Dora Milaje, Black Widow, Ant-Man and The Wasp – some of whom are making their first appearances at the park.

At a nearby Ancient Sanctum, Doctor Strange will train recruits in the mystic arts by bringing this ancient sanctum to life with powerful spells. Guests may even witness Spider-Man swinging into action high above Avengers Campus with gravity-defying, acrobatic feats never seen before in a Disney theme park.

Speaking of Spider-Man, Guests can put their web-slinging skills to the test and experience what it’s like to have powers on the new WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, the first Disney ride-through attraction to feature the iconic friendly neighborhood Spider-Man! Also while in Avengers Campus, Guests can help Rocket bust his fellow Guardians of the Galaxy out of the Collector’s Fortress on the fan-favorite Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!

At Pym Test Kitchen in Avengers Campus inside Disney California Adventure Park, even the food and drinks tell a story. Just as Ant-Man and The Wasp used shrinking and growing technology, Pym Test Kitchen applies this science to innovative food. Experiment No. IP42: Quantum Pretzel features a pretzel that has been enlarged by a quantum tunnel and comes with mustard and beer cheese dipping sauce. (David Nguyen/Disneyland Resort)

Super Hero Sustenance

And with all that training, Guests are going to need to fuel up at some point! From a shawarma wrap, to the Choco-Smash CANDY Bar, Pingo Doce and more, there are several super rad dining options throughout the campus.  

We highly recommend that Guests plan ahead, use the mobile order service and pay with the Disneyland app for a contactless ordering experience at locations, including Pym Test Kitchen featuring IMPOSSIBLETM, Pym Tasting Lab and Shawarma Palace. Currently, Guests may only pick up a food and beverage mobile order if they are already inside Avengers Campus. It’s important to know that simply placing a mobile order at a food and beverage location in Avengers Campus does not grant Guests access to the land or the park. 

Mission-critical gear

Don’t forget to gear up for your epic adventure! There are three industrial mercantile shops set to outfit aspiring WEB members with all the latest gadgets, accessories and fashions.

Inside the land, beginning June 4, Guests will find WEB Suppliers and the Avengers Campus Supply Pod. Just outside of Avengers Campus, visit Disneyland Resort Backlot Premiere Shop featuring Avengers Campus (which is now open). One must-have gadget available at all locations is the WEB Tech! As we’ve shared, all Guests visiting WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure will be able to sling webs with Spider-Man in the most epic adventure yet. Those wishing to customize their experience on board the attraction can do so with wearable WEB Tech accessories, which gives them additional web slinging powers. Pretty awesome!

And remember, tucked into the ground floor of the Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! are hundreds of items curated in The Collector’s Warehouse that Guests might be tempted to add to their own collection.

Travel Updates

Lastly, we would be remiss not to mention a very important note on traveling to the Disneyland Resort right now. Guests planning a visit should be aware of the latest health and safety guidelines. Until June 15, only California residents may visit Disneyland Resort theme parks, and party size is limited to no more than three households.

Beginning June 15, 2021, we will once again be able to welcome Guests from outside of California back to our theme parks. As always, our procedures may change as we continue to update our health and safety processes based on guidance from the state of California and local health officials. To help plan and prepare for your next trip to Disneyland Resort, you can use the Disneyland® Resort “Know Before You Go” information by using the updated “Know Before You Go” microsite – We recommend that you check back on the website often, as information continues to be updated.

That’s all for now, recruits! It’s time to get ready for epic action beginning June 4!
