Things just got very exciting at Disneyland Paris. Opening as part of the 30th Anniversary celebration of Disneyland Paris, a brand-new Marvel-themed land is now open at Walt Disney Studios Park. Marvel Avengers Campus Disneyland Paris is the first-ever Marvel-themed universe in Europe, featuring action-packed attractions and surprise appearances from some of the favourite Marvel characters of all time. As well as a completely immersive land, Marvel-themed architecture, live-action stunts and extra special themed restaurants, this new addition to Disneyland Paris is going to completely reinvent the park.

The all-new Marvel Avengers Campus Disneyland Paris
Disneyland Paris already provides us Europeans with a world of Disney on this side of the Atlantic and there is so much already on offer at the resort, which spans two parks; Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park. The new Marvel Avengers Campus Disneyland Paris is part of Walt Disney Studios’ park, Disney’s second park in Paris that originally opened in 2002. With great power comes great responsibility, so fast forward twenty years and now a SUPER new area has opened within the park that Marvel fans big and small are going to mad for. Even more excitingly, over the next few years, Disneyland Paris is being completely reimagined and will eventually feature the Frozen-themed Kingdom of Arendelle and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge (the popular land already open at Walt Disney World and Disneyland California).
With the new Disneyland Paris Marvel Avengers Campus and Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel, Disneyland Paris is gearing up to be the ULTIMATE destination for Marvel fans to indulge their inner Super Hero and I am here for it.
Do you need separate tickets for Marvel Avengers Campus Disneyland Paris
No separate ticket is needed for the new Marvel land. The Disneyland Paris Avengers Campus is part of the existing Walt Disney Studios Park. If you plan to visit the magical Disneyland Park, where you will find the iconic Sleeping Beauty Castle, as well as the new Marvel land, you will need a two-park ticket and ideally two (or even three) days to do everything.
What is the new Marvel Avengers Campus Disneyland Paris like?
As you enter the Avengers Campus, the QuinJet takes pride of place outside S.H.I.E.L.D HQ, sat gleaming on the QuinPad. Disneyland Paris really have done a great job with the design of the area, creating an almost-instant transition from the magical Mickey-ears theme to the Mega cool Marvel Universe. This area has completely changed the dynamic of Walt Disney Studios, which is also home to Ratatouille’s Paris, Cars and Toy Story. A more sophisticated offering is just what this side of the park needed and the results are fantastic, appealing to classic Disney fans and the cool Marvel crowd.
What rides are at Disneyland Paris Avengers Campus?
There are two new Marvel-themed rides at Disneyland Paris. The star attraction is the new Spider-man W.E.B. Adventure. On this 3D action attraction, recruits of all ages are given web-slinging superpowers accomplished through innovative technology that was created specifically for this ride. Guests team up with Spidey and help capture the out-of-control Spider-Bots – Peter Parker’s robot sidekicks – before they wreak havoc on the Campus.
The pre-show sets the scene, taking place at Avengers Campus’ Worldwide Engineering Brigade (WEB). A workshop of innovators are developing new technologies to equip and empower everyday people to become Super Heroes like the Avengers. This workshop showcases the inventions of Peter Parker and the rest of the WEB Tech team, including their adorable Spider-Bots which are designed to be robotic sidekicks capable of building anything a Super Hero might need.
On the ride, prepare to have your mind blown with innovative technology that recognizes body movements and gestures, meaning guests can sling webs from their own wrists, just like Spider-Man. The great news in, Spider-Man W.E.B. Adventure has no height restriction, meaning even the smallest Spidey fans can play.
This is the first time gestural recognition has been used at Disneyland Paris, guests are able to interact with the ride without needing wearable technology, other than 3D glasses. This very cool ride is sure to be a top attraction at Disneyland Paris for the distant future.
Avengers assemble: Flight Force
Avengers Assemble: Flight Force is a reimagined version of the original Rock and Roller coaster that opened at Disneyland Paris in 2002. The new, Marvel-ous update features Captain Marvel and Iron Man as part of the exciting Avengers theme. After being briefed by Iron Man himself, guests take on a ‘high-speed mission’ – that’s 0-57mph in 0.2 seconds fast – to help save the planet.
There is no question, this is one of the best roller-coasters at Disneyland Paris. However, height requirement to ride is 120 cm (47 inches), so check the height of anyone who may want to ride.
Other attractions at Marvel Avengers Campus Disneyland Paris:
Hero Training Center
A very cool indoor training center where recruits can learn some of the Avengers moves, meet characters and pose for selfies or cool, interactive pictures using the Disney PhotoPass service offered at Disneyland Paris. For the first time in any Disney Park, a dynamic “freeze frame” video sequence, created by DisneyPhotoPass uses 27 cameras to capture the action, turning meetings with Captain Marvel or Iron Man into unforgettable moments. These special encounters will be available for booking through the Disneyland Paris mobile app.
This is the main location to meet Marvel characters, including Iron Man, Black Widow and Spiderman (who was previously only available to meet exclusively for Hotel New York – Art of Marvel overnight guests). Once the Hero Training Centre officially opens on July 20th 20222, the current Heroic Encounter, where guests had previously seen Marvel characters will be closing. Thereafter, other characters such as Captain America, Black Panther, Thor, Loki, Wanda Maximoff and Groot will likely also assemble at the Training Center too. It might take you multiple visits to meet the whole gang though!

Do they have Guardians of the Galaxy in Disneyland Paris?
You may already know that a major Guardians of the Galaxy roller coaster has recently opened at Walt Disney World in Florida, but will you see the Guardians in Paris too? Sadly there is no GOTG ride (yet) but as we already know from the gang, saving the world can also be fun! You may get the chance to try out your best dance moves during an interactive dance-off with Star-Lord and Gamora from the Guardians of the Galaxy – and I can honestly say, that is firmly on my bucket list. Find Star-Lord at The Gateway Portal (otherwise known as the entrance to Avengers Campus Disneyland Paris). This is also a prime location to meet and greet one of the many Super Heroes of Avengers Campus throughout the day.
LIVE ACTION Heroes United Stunt Show
Keep your eyes to the ground – and to the roof tops – for surprise live-action stunts that are played out randomly throughout the day involving Marvel characters such as; Spider-Man, Iron Man, Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Black Widow, Thor and Loki. In addition to these legends, Avengers Campus Disneyland Paris will also introduce Captain America, Ant-Man and The Wasp, Okoye and the Dora Milaje from Wakanda for the first ever time. This diverse set of Super Heroes will be ready to defend the Avengers Campus at any time of day or night.
Finally, as you navigate the park, make way for a sleek new high-tech Avengers vehicle that will roam the Campus throughout the day dispatching the Heroes in style!
Where to eat at Marvel Avengers Campus Disneyland Paris:
It wouldn’t be Disney without every last detail being included in the immersive experience of entering the world of Marvel, so expect some very cool food offerings in the new Marvel-themed land too.
Stark Factory at Avengers Campus Paris
For some ‘super’ quick service: Stark Factory is a canteen style food court serving fast food options such as pasta, pizza and salads. There is also a cooking show experience at the location, performed at dedicated times. Prices for the food at Avengers Campus range from €14 for a large pizza, €7 for a kids pizza. Salad bowls are available from €8.50.
PYM Kitchen at Avengers Campus Paris
PYM Kitchen is an Ant Man and the Wasp-themed restaurant at Avengers Campus Disneyland Paris that serves a fixed-price, buffet menu. Themed as an experimental lab, the buffet serves unusually-sized mains and snacks. Here, scientist chefs use Ant-Man and The Wasp’s PYM Particle technology to shrink and grow ingredients, creating a fun and creative dining experience. Think a giant pretzel sandwich to share and teeny tiny sandwiches with mini chips. Probably the best thing on offer (for the over 21s) is the BLUE wine. Yep, blue wine! You heard it here first…
Reservations are required, so book as early as possible via the app to avoid disappointment. (Adult buffet, €42. Child Buffet, €30. Drinks not included).
Food at Marvel Avengers Campus Disneyland Paris
In coming months, there will be a few other food outlets to choose from at Avengers Campus Paris, including The WEB (Worldwide Eating Brigade), a food truck that serves Asian noodles and coconut balls to grab a snack on the move. The FAN-tastic Food Truck, that serves classic New York-style hot dogs (meat and Vegan) and cheesecakes on sticks for dessert. Later this year, Super Diner, an American eatery, will open serving classic Yankee grub like Reuben sandwiches, burgers and pancakes.
Of course, if you have already devoured my best snacks to eat Disneyland Paris post, you’ll know to hunt down the Groot cookie!
Where to shop at Avengers Campus Paris:
MISSION EQUIPMENT MERCH SHOP
If you manage to leave Disneyland Paris without a souvenir of some kind, you are the real hero here. It’s unlikely though, because the Mission Equipment store has some excellent gifts, keepsakes and collectables to fill up your suitcase. We loved the extra cool Spider Bots (robot toys) as well as subtle clothing and Disney pin badges. There is also a lot of Groot merchandise, and I am very onboard with that. I love Groot!
Where to stay: Disney’s Hotel New York – Art of Marvel
If you really are a Marvel super fan, THE place to stay is obviously the amazing Hotel New York – Art of Marvel. This slick, on-site hotel is a 4* property with a thoroughly immersive Marvel theme throughout. Art deco-style rooms have cool Marvel artwork on the walls and slick, muted décor. Within the hotel is the Super Hero Station, which offers Heroic Encounters with Captain America and Black Widow and the Hero Training Zone, an outdoor field with dedicated areas for a variety of sports activities. (*Now that Avengers Campus is open, our friendly neighbourhood Spider-man has located to the Hero Training Center inside the park).
Around the hotel, admire 350 pieces of artwork created by more than 110 artists, in one of the largest publicly viewable collections of Marvel art in the world.
By night, Disney’s Hotel New York – Art of Marvel has two sophisticated restaurants and two bars, the best being Skyline Bar. Here, ‘real time’ footage is played on huge screens that give the effect of looking out over New York. From time to time, you may spot of the heroes swinging into action through the ‘window’.
