General Park News - (11/6/21) Disney California Adventure has officially retired the mandatory use of the virtual queue system for the WEB Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure attraction as crowds begin to slow down. This doesn’t mean that they may not bring it back during very busy days, but for now you can just jump in line for WEB Slingers like virtually every other attraction in the park.
(10/22/21) Disney has been adding some fascinating new Marvel characters to the Avengers Campus during the extra-ticket Oogie Boogie Bash event. Since it is a Halloween themed event after all, a lot of the Disney and Marvel villains have been let loose to cause a little chaos in the park after dark. On the Marvel side of things, guests have enjoyed seeing WandaVisions’ “Agatha Harkness” making appearances, which is great as a rumored WandaVision spin-off series is said to be in the planning stages for Disney+ for that character. However the surprise stand-out new character in Avengers Campus has been the arrival of a Zombie Captain America, a character Disney+ viewers were introduced to as part of the Marvel “What If…?” animated series. Seriously, take a look at the collection of pictures of this character in the IG post below and you’ll see something that looks like it walked right out of Greg Nicotero’s makeup studio for The Walking Dead. This has got to be the darkest character Disney has ever released out into their theme parks.
I shudder to think about what Avengers Campus could be like if they ever unleashed the full Marvel Zombie Apocalypse world from “What If…?” upon the land to create a true Scare Zone of epic proportions. Well, I can dream at least...
(7/3/21) Disney has announced a new surprise addition is coming this month as an update to the Mickey’s PhilharMagic attraction. An entirely new musical scene is being added to the fun 4D theater film allowing Donald to enter the world of Disney and Pixar’s COCO for the first time.
“The musical number “Un Poco Loco” will anchor the new scene when it opens to guests at Disney California Adventure park and Disneyland Paris on July 17, before being added to Magic Kingdom Park later this year during the Walt Disney World Resort 50th anniversary celebration.”
The world of COCO is such a wonderful visual treat to the eyes, and features fantastic music plus the wacky characters that would fit right in with all the crazy action that takes place during Donald’s adventure in Mickey’s PhilharMagic. From the sound of things they are only adding content to the attraction and it didn’t sound like the addition would bring about the removal of any of the other existing scenes.
Honestly, I don’t know why they haven’t tried adding some updated scenes to Mickey’s PhilharMagic before. Wouldn’t it be fun to put Donald into other more modern Disney films like Tangled, Moana or even Frozen? Come on, you know you want to see Donald take on Marshmallow and the Snowgies or perhaps get caught up in a battle between a singing Maui and Tamotoa in potential future updates.
???? - Avengers Campus Expansion - Planned - (8/24/20) BlooLoop has posted an update about the Avengers Campus attraction under construction at Disney California Adventure. With construction moving ahead once again Disney released an updated look at the land, including the new Quinjet that has been installed. The arrival of the Quinjet is an important feature that will play heavily into the theme of the major attraction set to be installed in the second phase of the land, which is rumored to be an Avengers themed ride experience.
(8/27/19) Disney also confirmed that there will be a Phase 2 to the Avengers Campus, which will indeed be that promised new Avengers themed ride. The latest details on this attraction coming later is that guests will board a Quinjet and fly off to help the Avengers battle a new threat in Wakanda. This will all take place inside a brand new structure that will be the actual Avengers Headquarters. Disney wont say exactly what kind of ride this will be, only that they are working on developing an “all-new innovative ride system” to bring the experience to life.
