Highly anticipated new experiences at Disneyland Resort, Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland will soon invite guests to become part of a bigger universe filled with epic heroes and adventures, and today we’re sharing a sneak peek! Developed in partnership with Marvel Studios and Marvel Themed Entertainment, these three new areas will champion the next generation of Super Heroes.

At Disneyland Resort, the new Super Hero-themed land will begin recruiting guests in 2020, with even more new experiences to follow. The Guardians of the Galaxy will be joined by Spider-Man and the Avengers in what will become a completely immersive Super Hero universe, furthering the evolution of Disney California Adventure park. This new land will be anchored by the popular Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!, in the adjacent space that is currently occupied by “a bug’s land.” “It’s Tough to Be a Bug” closed March 19 to make way for this new heroic experience; the rest of the land will close in late summer.

As part of the transformative multi-year expansion announced for Disneyland Paris, the new Marvel-themed area at Walt Disney Studios Park will include a reimagined attraction where riders will team up with Iron Man and their favorite Avengers on a hyper-kinetic adventure in 2020. This will follow an epic experience launching this summer, when Disneyland Paris hosts Marvel Summer of Super Heroes from June 10 to September 30. Favorite heroes will take the stage for a brand new, live-action super-production featuring cutting-edge special effects and spectacular projections.

Multi-year expansion plans are also underway at Hong Kong Disneyland, including a new themed area that will include an exciting attraction where guests team up with Ant-Man and The Wasp. This new attraction will join the Iron Man Experience, which opened in 2017 and is already the most popular attraction at the resort.

Join your favorite heroes soon for these and more epic adventures at Disney Parks around the world!


  • I hope to hear more about the Immersive Super Hero themed area coming soon to Disney California Adventure Park at this years San Diego Comic Con! I’m so excited!

  • Please bring Bucky/ Winter Soldier to Disneyland Resort!

  • Sad a bit, but I hope they catered more to the teens and up. It would be nice to see that. Big kids enjoy rides too!!! Looking forward to the change.

  • Can NOT wait for the new “Marvel Land” at DCA. I do hope there will be at least 1 truly wheelchair accessible attraction (similar to the Little Mermaid ride). There are very few attractions at DCA where a person may remain in their wheelchair to enjoy… As far as parents with young children are concerned, Pixar Pier is totally enjoyable for all – especially families with children. Favorite Pixar characters are on hand for meet and greets, The Pixar Pal around is ready to board now along with the Incredicoaster and Toy Story ride, the carousel will be open soon, there are games on the boardwalk to play, and a new attraction is coming which is very much like fliks flyers from Bug’s Land.

  • I am saddened by this. My 18-month old daughter absolutely loved the splash area. It was such an ingenious spot for parents to refresh their little ones on a hot day. What a bummer for parents of toddlers.

  • Sad to hear about Bugs Land. Might have to make a farewell trip this summer. When is it closing?

  • Although I am saddened by the news of Bug’s Life, we are looking forward to seeing Disney’s magic with the Avengers and other super heroes.

  • I’m so heartbroken to lose Tough to be a Bug. Since we can’t afford to go to WDW, there were 3 attractions at DCA that we loved visiting to get the “we’re at Disney World!” feeling.. and that was Tower of Terror, MuppetVision 3D and Tough to be a Bug. I’m sad…

  • I’m sad to lose heimlich’s chew chew train! That was one of my kids favorites! Hopefully Disney can find a way to squeeze it in to Pixar Pier somewhere. The lack of kids rides this move makes worries me a little. While all my teens go on the thrill rides, where do I take my little kids (besides Ariel)?

  • Here’s an interesting question;
    What is Disney Imagineering going to do with the animatronics from It’s Tough to be a Bug? Will they be sent to Florida as back-ups for the Tough to be a Bug show there?

  • Can’t wait for this. Cool that all 4 major Disney properties (Disney, Star Wars, Pixar, Marvel) will be represented at DLR.

  • Seems like there will be a lot less to do for the younger set. I guess Disney is ceding the families with toddlers to other parks now?

  • OMG I will miss Bugs land Immensely. Heimlich is such a fun family ride. The music and theming of the area were perfect. The entire land is great for young kids. Time to plan a visit to say goodbye.

  • Is there any plan to move Heimlich’s Chew Chew train?

  • I just want to be clear: we’re getting a state of the art Spider-Man ride from Walt Disney Imagineering and people are mourning the loss of the Chew-Chew Train…? Is that really happening? Later, Heimlich, it’s been real.

  • Awesome news!! People need to embrace change as Walt always wanted change. My husband and I are very excited about this we can’t wait!!!

  • Hi Erin I’m extremely hyped for this land do you how many rides we will get for Disney California adventure park marvel land Erin

  • So awesome to finally hear some official news! I’m looking forward to hearing more. It’s a shame that A Bug’s Land will be going away, but at least it’s been confirmed that A Bug’s Life will be represented in Pixar Pier with one of the boardwalk games. It’s one of my favorite Pixar films.

  • Can’t wait to hear more about what this new Marvel area will have. Love Marvel!!!

  • This closing of the Bug’s Land gives longer lead time than some recent closing announcements, but is still painfully short notice– not even 6 months. We are visiting this fall, and in hearing talk about Heimlich’s Chew Chew Train closing to make way for Marvel things, we were planning/hoping for one more chance for my 3 yo daughter to ride her favorite ride before it’s gone forever. Disney, please consider making these announcements farther out in advance, especially considering that I would imagine it takes most families who visit the parks close to a year’s worth of planning before visiting (other guests can chime in). Now, how are we supposed to tell her Heimlich is gone for good?

  • To bad my husband really liked it’s a bugs life

  • Is there a more specific closing date for “a bug’s land?” Need to make sure I can plan one last ride on Heimlich’s Chew Chew Train!

  • I’m going to miss riding around on Heimlich’s chew chew train but I’m excited to see what awesomeness WDI has in store for us!
