Today the Disney Parks Blog became a hero to fanboys everywhere by not only announcing that Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: BREAKOUT! will open May 27th (just weeks after Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theatres) but that there will also be all kinds of other Marvel goodies arriving in Disney California Adventure. This year the Disneyland Resort will celebrate the Summer of Heroes starting on May 27th and running through September 10th. These festivities will include special entertainment, merchandise, and food. Plus some year-round additions include a Guardians dance party and a meet and greet with Groot.
From Disney Parks Blog:
Summer of Heroes will launch these new, year-round experiences:
- Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off! – Don’t be surprised if you run into the Guardians of the Galaxy on their way to the Milano, with Star-Lord firing up his old-school boom box to get the party started. Gamora may prefer to stand back and observe, but everyone else is bound to get in the groove and show off their moves during this awesome rock ‘n’ roll bash!
- 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.
And for a limited time, step up to the challenge with new adventures during Summer of Heroes:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
The Summer of Heroes will kick off in Disney California Adventure on May 27th!
