Disney California Adventure park will soon be the destination for adventure, intrigue and triumph as recruits from around the world – like you – join forces with legendary Super Heroes in an ever-expanding universe of stories that will grow even bigger over time. This summer, we are kicking off the action with the May 27 grand opening of the thrilling, rocking attraction, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!

Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! Coming to Disney California Adventure Park

This new adventure blasts you straight into the “Guardians of the Galaxy” story for the first time ever, alongside characters from the blockbuster films and comics. As you help Rocket bust his pals out of the Collector’s Fortress, you will experience randomized ride experiences complete with all-new visual and audio effects and music inspired by the popular film soundtracks. You never know which adventure you will get!

There will be even more ways to step into Super Hero stories with Summer of Heroes, May 27 through September 10. Answer the call for this limited-time celebration as you join the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy for all-new epic experiences.

Summer of Heroes will launch these new, year-round experiences:

  • Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off! – Don’t be surprised if you run into the Guardians of the Galaxy on their way to the Milano, with Star-Lord firing up his old-school boom box to get the party started. Gamora may prefer to stand back and observe, but everyone else 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 Groot, one of the Guardians of the Galaxy! You can also step up to meet the First Avenger, Captain America, along with everyone’s favorite web slinger, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.

And for a limited time, step up to the challenge with new adventures during 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 – All that heroism making you hungry? Want a token as proof of your adventures when you get home? Special themed merchandise and food will be available throughout Hollywood Land.

The summer brings even more to get excited about over at Disneyland park as classic favorites return with the reopening of the Disneyland Railroad and Rivers of America attractions, with the “Fantasmic!” nighttime spectacular returning later in the summer. We’ll have opening dates to share soon for these attractions. And don’t miss your chance to see the classic Main Street Electrical Parade during its limited-time run at Disneyland park through June 18.

  • Looks amazing!! I thin Disney made a VERY smart move bringing Marvel into the picture at Disney parks. I was wondering when they were going to start bringing the “World’s Mightiest Heroes” to the theme parks!!

  • Y’know, I was just thinking…the GotG Dance Off kinda sounds like DJ’s Dance ‘n Drive over in Cars Land. Just thinking out loud…

  • Rumor has it the Dance Off is a daytime event but I wouldn’t be surprised if they did it both day- and night-time.

  • This sounds great! I’m super excited for some new experiences 😀

  • ok so 2 things I’m hoping to get clarification on:

    First, is the Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off! a daytime or evening event? Or, in other words is it the replacement for Mad T?

    Second, is the Avengers Training Initiative going to be basically the Marvel version of Jedi Training Academy?

    • Hi Tyler – We’ll have details to share on both of these experiences soon. Stay tuned.

  • These are new experiences and attractions for us to experience. Why are some people so negative about it? Very weird.

    Looking forward to all of these experiences. Thank you, Disneyland!

  • So is this dance off the replacement for the Mad T Party/ElecTRONica?

  • why not just announce marvel land now?

  • Love it!!! Can’t wait until summer. Disneyland incorporating more Marvel is AWESOME!!!

  • Wow, no. This really just does not look like it belongs at all! I’m sure it will still be fun but it just feels like they are trying too hard..

  • Is there any word on a photo op with the collectors box?????

  • Sounds awesome.
    I know that some people were sad to see Tower of Terror go, but I am always open to new experiences, and I am really looking forward to seeing what the imagineers have up their sleeves with Mission Breakout.
