This new adventure blasts guests straight into the “Guardians of the Galaxy” story for the first time ever, alongside characters from the blockbuster films and comics. As Guests help Rocket bust his pals out of the Collector’s Fortress, they’ll experience randomized ride experiences complete with all-new visual and audio effects and music inspired by the popular film soundtracks. They will never know which adventure they’ll get!

There will be even more ways to step into Super Hero stories with Summer of Heroes, May 27 through Sept.10, 2017. Guests can answer the call for this limited-time celebration as they join the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy for all-new epic experiences.

Summer of Heroes will launch these new, year-round experiences:

  • Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off! – Guests may 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! Guests 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, Guests can 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 – Special themed merchandise and food will be available throughout Hollywood Land.

The summer brings even more to get excited about over at Disneyland park as classic favorites return with the reopening of the Disneyland Railroad and Rivers of America attractions, with the “Fantasmic!” nighttime spectacular returning later in the summer. We’ll have opening dates to share soon for these attractions. And, guests can also catch the classic Main Street Electrical Parade during its limited-time run at Disneyland Park through June 18.

Disneyland Tower of Terror Transformation Underway

For my Disneyland fans and travelers, I have an update on the Tower of Terror Transformation for you…

The huge transformation is now underway in Disney’s California Adventure Park.  The Collector’s Fortress is taking shape at the Tower Hotel.  Disney plans to create an all new adventure in this location and when finalized it will be, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!  This new attraction is scheduled to open in the summer of 2017
guardians_tower_model
The picture above is of a model created by Walt Disney Imagineering and will guide the work currently taking place on the exterior of the attraction.  Every shade and detail that you see here will be reproduced in full size as Disney’s Dream Builders bring the Collector’s realm to life in California Adventure at Disneyland Resort.

The “warehouse, fortress-like power plant” (as described by Joe Rohde, Creative Executive, Walt Disney Imagineering) is designed to be intimidating and imposing, but also shimmering and regal.  It will be the ideal location for the Collector to secure and show off his most prized acquisitions, the Guardians of the Galaxy.

This epic new adventure will feature the characters from Disney’s 2014 film, Guardians of the Galaxy, along with the breathtaking free-fall sensation and all-new visual and audio effects.  The music will be inspired by the “Guardians of the Galaxy” film soundtrack.

We have all heard that Disney is working to create a sequel to the original Guardian of the Galaxy film.  It has been speculated that the new film might open in 2017.  Do you think that the opening of the film and the attraction might coincide?

Thank you for reading. My name is Melissa and I am a Disney addict; I am also a travel agent and Florida resident.  Although I visit Disney World with my family almost every weekend, we have been to Disneyland on several locations.  Cars Land is one thing that is unique to Disneyland and draws my family back to the parks repeatedly.  If you are considering a trip to Disneyland, you can book through a travel agent at no added cost and get expert planning tips and assistance.  It all starts with a free quote.

Star Wars Awakens in Disneyland Park

There has never been a better time to be a Star Wars fan and all of the Disney Star Wars news has the geek in me jumping for joy.

Disneyland_Star_Wars-FB_1-2016

Numerous Star Wars Experiences can now be found in Tomorrowland.  The Space Mountain attraction has now become Hyperspace Mountain.  For a limited time, riders can fly along in an x-wing fighter among the stars.  An all new Star Tours – The Adventures Continue experience is now being constantly displayed at the attraction.  I have heard that eventually it will go into the queue with each unique experience that will be played at random.  An updated Jedi Train Academy – Trials of the Temple is now being offered in the Jedi Training area of Tomorrowland.  Star Wars Launch Bay is not open giving guests an opportunity to see some of the movie memorabilia from Star Wars and even meet some of the characters up close and personal.

If some of you fellow Star Wars fans are like me, you are drooling at the chance to see these new attractions in Disneyland.  Some of them may even be limited time attractions, but I do expect that many may be moved into the new Star Wars themed land that is currently under construction.  If you have a change to see this Star Wars history in the making, get to Disneyland Park for all of these unique experiences.

My name is Melissa and I am a HUGE Star Wars fan.  I am also a travel agent with Main Street Adventures Travel agency.  I can help you book and plan your next Disney Star Wars experience at not added cost to you and it all starts with a free quote.  Did I mention the free perks & travel goodies I give for all of my clients?  Contact me today for free and friendly travel planning for your next trip.
