Disney California Adventure’s New Marvel Land Will Be Called “Avengers Campus”

D23 is kicking off this weekend, which means it’s time for parks announcements! One of the first of the weekend is some more details on the new Marvel themed land coming to Disney California Adventure (and Disneyland Paris). The main announcement so far is that the new land will be called “Avengers Campus”.

The idea behind the land is that the Avengers have set up the location to recruit and train new recruits.  The California Adventure version is replacing Bugs Land, which has been closed for a little while now. Conveniently this is right next to the one current Marvel attraction, Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout. One of the main attractions is going to be a Spiderman themed ride in the former “Tough to be a Bug” theater. The first phase of Avengers Campus is expected to open in 2020.
