It’s here! The highly anticipated Summer of Heroes event that kicks off May 27th, 2017 and runs through September 10, 2017.
The biggest event happening during the Summer of Heroes is the opening of Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT.
The ride that will immerse you into the world of Guardians of the Galaxy as Rocket leads the way to a rescue mission, breaking out his pals in the Collector’s Fortress. The ride promises to tie in the characters, movies and music from the Guardians of the Galaxy story and be filled with thrills and surprises.
I was so super sad when I found out that the Tower of Terror was leaving, and it took me some time to come around. But I am super excited for this makeover of my beloved Hollywood Tower Hotel to this new theme. Although the old ride will always have a special place in my heart.
I did get even more excited when I could witness the transformation live at Disneyland. I snapped pictures of when I was there last a few weeks ago.
It really looks amazing. Disney does not disappoint when they prepare for a new ride, experience and theme.
It really made a fantastic transformation.
With the opening of this new, huge ride, they are having a Summer of Heroes event for all of us true Marvel fans to immerse into the experience even more.
But what does the Summer of Heroes mean? What to expect with the Summer of Heroes event for Summer 2017?
Besides the amazing new ride opening, here’s what you can expect from Disneyland’s California Adventure park this summer:
- 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. I love this because the Jedi Training Camp in Disneyland is one of our family’s favorite events. It is to NOT MISS. So I love that they are bringing a similar opportunity for young kids in California Adventure. This will also be done the same way as the Jedi Training Camp, meaning if your kids want to be an Avenger for the day, they will need to register to claim a spot. You will register the day of, on-site. I will warn you, this needs to be done ASAP. The slot times will fill-up FAST! Probably within a few minutes of park opening. Here’s where you can go:Avengers Training Initiative is open to children ages 4 to 12. Advance registration is required.
- All participants must be present at the time of registration.
- Sign up at the kiosk in the Hollywood Backlot near Stage 17 and Sunset Showcase Theater. Ask a Cast Member if you are unable to locate the kiosk.
- Registration for each day’s shows begins when Disney California Adventure Park first opens, including Extra Magic Hours.
- Registration is on a first-come basis and availability is limited.
- 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 for a character meet and greet.
- 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…of course. 😉
Disneyland has also announced that the following year-round Super Hero Experiences will be opening this summer, but going on indefinitely. I hope, hope, hope the Avengers Training Initiative gets added to this list!
- Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off! – In Hollywood Land, you can expect to find Dance Off performances throughout the day. The Guardians of the Galaxy members will be present for that interactive dancing fun!
- 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. This will all take place there in Hollywood Land.
Are you ready for the Summer of Heroes?!? You can’t NOT go…I mean it is a first-ever Superhero theme in our favorite theme park!
