Once onboard, guests will interact with characters and become active participants in stories that unfold around them on their galactic journey. The new area of the park will be home to attractions based on the Marvel movies and comics.
"We're building an immersive superhero-themed land at Disney California Adventure to enable our guests to join the Avengers to save the world", Bob Chapek, chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, said at the expo, which continues on through the end of this weekend. This has a very Epcot feel to it, and reminds me of the early days of Epcot when things like "dancing fountains" could only be found at the park.
Plus, Walt Disney World has announced the name of its new Star Wars hotel, which will have guests in uniform and windows that look like portals into outer space. The new experience will discover engaging and interactive exhibits that allow you to step inside the relentless innovation, energy and excitement and see some never-before-revealed details driving the future of Epcot this October. As for where the show takes place in the STAR WARS timeline, THE MANDALORIAN is set right after the events of THE RETURN OF THE JEDI, after the fall of the Empire, and before the events of FORCE AWAKENS, and the start of the First Order.
