Avengers Campus - Reactions / Reviews

Is there still a line to get into the land or is it just open?
You can go in and out as you please via all three entrances as Curious Constance noted - but I recommend entering from the parade route and working your way across towards Avengers HQ and M:BO for the most impressive view and building of interest in the area. Entering from M:BO isn't bad either, but not as exciting ending up at the Slingers store after you've seen all the big set pieces, although that is near where Spidey hangs out. :) The Cars Land entrance/exit should definitely not be your starting point, though it's nice to be able to cut through there again without all the dead ends!

Wide open all day long at all 3 entrances. They should take the virtual queue off of the Webslingers ride. I don’t think it needs it.
They'd probably sell more of the shooter toys too if they took the VQ off; I hardly see folks buying them anymore, and the number of people placing in the Top 10 with their WEB tech hasn't changed dramatically since opening day which adds to my suspicion that the power-ups are purely cosmetic.

Random ride review for you....

Some family of mine (2 adults and 2 boys, 12 and 9) just visited the parks for the first time in 10 years. Their review of web slingers: "What a disappointment. Waited hour and a half for what? Shooting bots on a screen."

I agree that it is time to lose the boarding group for this one. It sets up a weird expectation that a C/D ticket ride can't meet.

Avengers Campus is a fun land, between the epic background music (oh hi, Galaxy’s Edge) and great use of character interactions. Also I have a serious soft spot for Mission Breakout, sorry not sorry, which fits its land much better now.

But Web Slingers is a weak headliner, no questions asked. Fingers crossed another genuine E-ticket still comes.

Is it just me or does Avengers Campus feel really cramped? It feels like some random MCU stuff thrown next to each other in a very tight space. Plus, with Mission Breakout's front and entrance facing away from Avengers Campus, it doesn't feel like it fits any better in the park than it did before Avengers Campus. For what it was going for, A Bug's Land was vastly better executed. I figure we are at least 5 years out from the Avengers E-Ticket if it ever gets built since construction hasn't started yet, and that will be what is needed to make this land worthwhile IMO.

Reason why AC > GE *IMO* :)


If you're curious about where and when Avengers Campus takes place in the MCU timeline, Walt Disney Imagineering's creative director, Brent Strong, recently shared that the attraction is always taking place in the here and now.

"So first of all, you know, the mission to inspire and empower the next generation of heroes is so important, that we've assembled heroes from across all of space and time for that, for that mission. And it is, we're all about to discover in a couple of weeks when Loki comes out, time is a lot more squishy than any of us think," he explained. "And so trying to put a specific date to it, it can be challenging, but to us, Avengers Campus is here and now, right, we get to live in the moment and these heroes are here with us and you're taking part in that story."

yeah the characters are what really make AC a solid land imo. The rides are both good as well, as is some of the food/drinks. But the amount of characters and shows happening all around the land is what GE is missing

I think it’s pretty cheesy to have every popular Marvel super hero out at the same time scattered throughout that tiny land with no cohesive theme.

Not even close
Fantasyland has all type of different characters from different regions and places around the world, yet they all hang out in a medieval village? Including Peter Pan? At least Avenger's Campus, as lame as I will agree it is, has all the MCU heroes in a campus setting. I do have issues with no where on this campus is there anything that resembles super hero training. One can just call it spider man land. but all the characters belong there thematically. Mr. Toad and Peter Pan hanging out in a medieval village makes no sense story wise other than "FANTASY" being in the name of the land nor does it make sense theme wise even though I love Fantasyland.

They're not out at the same time; usually there's no more than two or three out at the same time, which granted is still a lot more per square foot than you'd find in other parts of the resort.

GE doesn't need more characters, it needs more streetmosphere, like the BVS citizens (who miraculously still exist all these years later, thank goodness).

Yeah, it’s pretty weird that a bunch of unrelated cartoon characters led by a six foot tall rodent parade down an early 20th century street to pop music. But we like it.
I like it too. I love it as a matter of fact. But to say having the avenger characters in avenger's campus not make sense is disingenuous, even though I will concede the land as a whole is really lack luster.

"If you're curious about where and when Avengers Campus takes place in the MCU timeline, Walt Disney Imagineering's creative director, Brent Strong, recently shared that the attraction is always taking place in the here and now."

The quote in the article is "And so trying to put a specific date to it, it can be challenging, but to us, Avengers Campus is here and now, right, we get to live in the moment and these heroes are here with us and you're taking part in that story.” and the article is dated June 2, 2021.

So all that discussion about pre-snap timeline and multiverse timeline is thrown out or superseded?

In the article "Comicbook.com’s Jamie Jirak spoke to the creative director of Walt Disney Imagineering about this very idea. Brent Strong acknowledges that the timeline is a bit wonky as of right now in the MCU. Avengers: Endgame left things in a very fluid state."

It's not ironed out so why are they still trying to explain it? They are only getting people more confused. Just stop. It's an Avengers Land. That's all you need to know.

The theme is Marvel, so... 🤷‍♂️

It works great for me and the folks I see there who literally shriek with delight at every character sighting. I've already spent a lot of hours just sitting in the land people-watching between my own character visits and I can't sit for five minutes without some person realizing OMG LOOK Captain Marvel is up by the Quinjet or Iron Man is greeting by Avengers HQ with Captain America (Sam or Steve) patrolling above or Ant-Man is out by the S.H.I.E.L.D. vehicle or Thor is over near the Sanctum or Doctor Strange is doing a magic show or Spider-Man is climbing around above Web Slingers and each and every one of them has people shouting and excited to have the characters present.

If characters aren't your thing, cool. Thrills rides aren't mine so I could care less about any coaster, but give me a land full of characters I love and I'm in heaven. :)

So I got a look at AC last week. Some thoughts.

The Look: The pictures showed a land themed to a 2nd tier community college and the reality wasn't any different. This was so bland and dull to see I could hardly believe it. Not one structure that grabbed your interest and made you want to go inside. Plus the hideous Collector's Tower looming over everything. What a miss.

Atmosphere: This is driven by the characters, and there were plenty around. They did a decent job of engaging with the guests from up on the catwalk. There is a good variety with the walkarounds and the show characters. The shows themselves were well executed and fun to see. The Spider Man AA is very impressive. I can't wait for Disney to get similar AAs in other areas of the park. There is a lot they can do with this.

Food. Didn't bother with Pym's. We did have the Shawarma, which was pretty good. We got beers at the bar. Standard stuff.

Small Stuff: There are some Easter Eggs, which were fun. Things like Agent Carter's parking space or a map of the complex from the 40's, showing the Stark Vineyards where wine country is now or Mater's being listed as a scrapyard were nice touches. I'm a sucker for that kind of stuff.

Web Slingers: LOL. ***? Uninspired doesn't come close.

Overall: This was a miss for me. The land is boring looking and Web Slingers did nothing for me. Good shows and lots of characters were pluses. Guardians is still great fun though. The future Marvel E-Ticket needs to be something special to make this land a winner.

One other thing: even though this land wasn't for me (and, I think, for many posting here,) I quickly realized that I am not the target here. My niece and nephew (16 and 19, and Marvel crazy) and the younger kids of cousins all loved this area. Loved the characters and shows and thought Web Slingers was a blast. This is who Disney are going after and I have to say they are hitting the intended target.
