Avengers Campus, the Marvel-themed land at Disney California Adventure, was originally scheduled to open in July 2020. But due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Disney’s two theme parks in California have been closed since early last year. However, construction on Avengers Campus has continued and Disney CEO Bob Chapek says the project is still scheduled to open “later this year.”
Chapek made the comment during a call for investors, while noting that other new projects in Disney’s theme park portfolio are still being worked on–he specifically mentioned Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway at Disneyland, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure at Florida’s Epcot, and the Star Wars-themed hotel, which is also located in Florida. Missing from Chapek’s statement was a mention of Tron Lightcycle Power Run, the roller coaster under construction at Walt Disney World.
As for when California’s parks will open again–or when the company’s theme parks around the world will be able to increase their park capacities–Chapek noted it’s dependent on COVID-19 vaccine distribution.
