Fresh off the heels of Disneyland’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opening, the L.A. Times reports the park fully intends to power through and open Marvel Land in its California Adventure park...next year.
The news of Marvel Land isn’t new nor is the fact that its expected open date is 2020, but the recent startling progress around it is. The paper continues:
“The city of Anaheim has approved a handful of building permits for projects such as a bathroom overhaul, a retail outlet, a microbrewery, a character meet-and-greet area, plus improvements to behind-the-scenes buildings. One of the permits, approved Wednesday, allows for a 2,071-square-foot merchandise outlet, with three attached canopies. For comparison, the average home in the Western U.S. is 1,800 square feet, according to census data.”
Another figure that’ll blow you away? The permits approved by the city thus far will yield at least $14 million in construction work. That’s likely (1) the tip of the iceberg with the expansion costs to come and (2) going to be nothing for Disney, seeing as Avengers: Endgame has made around $2 billion worldwide so far.
That’s just about all the info out there for now, although we do also know there are more Marvel Land–related details to drop this summer. According to ABC 7, the world can expect to know more come the annual D23 Expo this August in Anaheim.
You can read more about the Disneyland expansion over at the L.A. Times. Or you can sit here with me in silence and think about how much quality shawarma is in our future.
