The Disneyland Resort has backed off its announced opening date for its Marvel-themed Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure.
Disney had announced that the new land - and its signature WEB Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure interactive dark ride - would open on July 18. But just a couple of days after making that announcement, Disneyland and Walt Disney World closed their parks as part of the international response to the pandemic. Shortly after that, Disney also shut down construction at its US theme parks, all but assuring that Avengers Campus would not be open by its announced opening date, even if the parks reopened by then.
So the change on the Disneyland website from "opening July 18" to "coming soon" should not surprise anyone at this point. It simply affirms what many leaders have been saying for some time now, that we simply do not when it will be safe and appropriate for businesses such as theme parks to reopen.
In reflection of that, all of Disney's theme parks around the world are closed until further notice.Tweet
