Guardians of the Galaxy: Misson BREAKOUT

Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!: The first major domestic Marvel attraction has transformed the Tower of Terror. As you help Rocket bust his pals out of the Collector’s Fortress, you will experience randomized ride experiences complete with all-new visual and audio effects and music inspired by the popular film soundtracks. 

Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off!: The latest Disney California Adventure dance party will feature an Awesome Mix. The Guardians of the Galaxy may stop by and participate in some of the fun.

Marvel Meet-and-Greets: Guests will be able to meet Groot, who is joining the existing roster of Captain America and Spider-Man.

Limited Time Offerings

Avengers Training Initiative: In what sounds like Marvel’s version of the Jedi Training Academy, Black Widow and Hawkeye will 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. Please note that this meet-and-greet is only being offered during the promotion.

Special Merchandise: Special merchandise will be available. Details will be available in the future
