A fresh look inside one of the newest, hottest experiences at Disneyland.

Imagine a land where you can immerse yourself in the glorious world of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. A land where all ages are welcomed to bask in the ancient teachings of the Mystic Arts, join Rocket on his quest to rescue the Guardians and savor the delicious foods at Pym Test Kitchen, where the Pym Particles brings your dining experience to life, literally.

If this sounds like your destination, then I humbly welcome you to Avengers Campus.

Avengers Campus is the newest land brought to us by Imagineers at Disney’s California Adventure Park. Having just celebrated their one-year anniversary, Avengers Campus has welcomed thousands of guests from all over the Multiverse.

I’d like to consider myself a permanent resident of this enticing campus. If you’ve never been to Avengers Campus and are planning to visit, allow me to tell you a little bit about the adventures that await you. With so much to see and do, I always recommend planning your visit out in advanced. Check show times for the day and always prioritize what is important for you to do, see and eat while you are here. Now, let’s dive into it.

Characters

You can find a good variety of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes roaming the land and strolling up top the Avengers Headquarters. While most characters do not have a specific time they come out, it’s always best to do a lap or two around the campus as you never know who you’ll bump into.

Shows

Avengers Campus has some of the best shows in the park in my opinion. As show times do vary, as always, it’s best to check the Disney App for showtimes.

Starting off with my favorite show, Doctor Strange: Mysteries of the Mystic Arts where you can indulge in the ancient teachings of the Mystic Arts and see which superhero will appear to assist Doctor Strange. For this show I do highly recommend trying to see it at night, as the Sanctum is lit up beautifully and gives the entire show a whole vibe.

Ever dreamed of fighting alongside the Dora Milaje? If you have, be sure to catch the Warriors of Wakanda: The Disciplines of the Dora Milaje where General Okoye invites you to train amongst the best to become a warrior of Wakanda. If there is one show, I can say that Disney nailed, it’s got to be this one.

Feel like getting your grove on? Dance on over to Join Star-Lord and Gamora in the Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off! Watch Peter Quill show off his amazing moves and rock out to some Rock & Roll classics.

The Amazing Spider-Man! show is one for the books. Watch Spider-Man test out the new enhancements on his suit as he slings across the WEB Slingers building.

To catch some Avengers in action, you’ll want to make sure you check out the Avengers Assemble! Show. Currently you can catch Black Widow descend from up top the Avengers Headquarters to take on the Taskmaster. 

Dining

After the marvelous encounters you’ll have immersed yourself in, refueling your energy is something that is highly needed. Avengers Campus has very limited but great dining options.

Head on over to Pym Test Kitchen where Ant-Man and the Wasp are spearheading a group of research chefs to deliver a menu that is out of this world. Using Pym Particles to grow and shrink food items, you’ll be sure to enjoy this unique dining experience. Vegetarian options are available such as the Impossible Spoonful which is Rigatoni and Ditalini Pastas with Plant-based Meatballs, a fan favorite! When it comes to my go-to menu item, it’s got to be the Not so Little Chicken Sandwich, served with crispy potato bites. With great food comes great drinks and a great non-alcoholic option is the Proton Punch, which is a Lemonade, Berry Puree, cherry flavored-filled Boba that comes with a Grenadine-filled Pipette. Allery-friendly options are also available.

 If there’s one thing that has always been on my mind since the first Avengers movie, it’s Shawarma. Luckily you can get a taste at what Tony Stark wanted to eat during the New York battle. Head on over to the Shawarma Palacecart to try out New York’s Tastiest, which is a Chicken Shawarma wrap with Coconut Yogurt-Tahini sauce. Want to switch it up? You could also try the Impossible Victory Falafel which is a plant-based Falafel and cauliflower wrap with Coconut yogurt-tahini Sauce. Both options are, Chef’s Kiss!

We’ve all got sweet tooth and what better place to conjure up the craving than Teran Treats. Savor in the deliciousness of the Sweet Spiral Ration, a churro spiral. The Cosmic Cream Orb will truly leave you wanting more, this is a crisp cream puff filled with whipped raspberry cheesecake.

With delicious foods and treats, we must have delicious drinks. I’d imagine Thor would agree with me. Craft beers and cocktails are awaiting you at Pym Tasting Lab. My go to drink is a Honey Fusion. This savory drink features, Plymouth Gin and Elysian Space Dust IPA with lemon juice and honey syrup, capped off with a honey straw. There’s truly a drink for everyone here.

Rides

Avengers Campus features two rides and believe me when I tell you that these two rides will take you through such a thrilling experience.  Guardians of the Galaxy Mission: BREAKOUT! Will take you on an exciting mission to help Rocket rescue the Guardians.

Join Spider-Man in WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure to shoot your own webs at Spider-Bots before they take over Avengers Campus.

Shopping in Avengers Campus

If you need that Avengers Swag, you’ll want to make sure you check out these great shopping options.

WEB Suppliers is your one stop shop for everything Spider-Man! From pins to apparel and Spider Bots, you’ll be sure to find all the available Spider-Man swag here!

The Campus Supply Pod is the campus mini shop cart, filled with your essential Avengers gear like shirts, hoodies and water bottles all decked out with the Avengers “A” logo.

One of the shops not to be missed is The Collector’s Warehouse which is located at the exit of Guardians of the Galaxy Mission: BREAKOUT! Here you’ll find an array ofunique items acquired by The Collector himself such as but not limited to: Comic Books, Pins, Apparel, Action Figures, ride themed apparel and so much more!

While technically not in Avengers Campus, the one store that is truly spectacular is the Super Store featuring Avengers Campus, or as most people like me like to call it, the Marvel Superstore. This is a dream store where you can find some of the most amazing Marvel themed merch! So many action figures, apparel, Loungefly, comic books and more! This major Marvel store is located in Hollywood Land. Did I also mention that you can find a life size Iron Man suit here that is available to purchase?

If there’s one thing, I truly recommend doing is to take a 5–10-minute break out of your day, sit on the steps in front of the Sanctum, and just enjoy the sights of the Avengers Headquarters, the Quinjet and listen to the beautiful sounds of this Campus. I truly hope you found this information helpful for your visit to Avengers Campus!
