Hero Up During the Summer of Heroes at Disney California Adventure Park

We attended a preview as a guest of Disney

Along with the opening of Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! super hero fans will experience more fun during the Summer of Heroes at Disney California Adventure Park. The fun begins on May 27th, in Hollywood Land with photo opportunities, dance-offs, and more.

One of the fun things to experience during the Summer of Heroes is the “Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off!” Star-Lord brings his boom box to the party and will invite guests to show off their moves in an interactive dance-off. A Guardians of the Galaxy dance-off wouldn’t be complete without Gamora and Groot. Groot will make an appearance at the end of the dance-off just to say three words: “I am Groot!” The dance-off will feature classic 70’s songs like:

“ABC” by The Jackson 5 – 1970
“Come and Get Your Love” by Redbone – 1973
“Fox on the Run” by Sweet – 1975
“Shake Your Groove Thin” by Peaches & Herb – 1978
“All Over the World” by Electric Light Orchestra – 1980

Everyone’s favorite thing to do when visiting the Disneyland Resort is to capture a keepsake photo with their favorite character. There will be photo opportunities and meet and greets with different Marvel characters including Spider-Man and Captain America.

The most exciting part of the Summer of Heroes is the Avengers Training Initiative. Young guests are invited to participate in an interactive experience in the Hollywood Backlot. The young avengers will learn defensive and attack maneuvers to defeat the villain Arnim Zola, who is known by Captain America fans to be from the evil HYDRA organization. Black Widow and Hawkeye will be the commander of the training and will help the young recruits to learn what it takes to become “Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.” Don’t be surprised if there is a special appearance from Tony Stark or Special Agent Cabe.

There are a wide variety of Super Hero themed dishes and desserts available throughout Disney California Adventure Park. Some of our favorites are the “The Most Dangerous Tacos in the Galaxy,” “Obviously Nachos,” and the “Gamma-Sized Donuts.” Don’t miss getting a “I am Groot Sipper” and Groot sourdough bread to bring home.

Before leaving Disney California Adventure Park, pick-out the perfect Summer of Heroes merchandise to bring home as a keepsake from your visit. There are four new product lines, ten popular toys inspired from the 70’s and 80’s, and retro-inspired apparel. For the pin traders, there are eight new Super Hero-inspired trading pins.

The highlight of the Summer of Heroes at Disney California Adventure Park is the opening of Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! The attraction will immerse families into a magical world filled with adventure, music, fun and a little chaos. Don’t miss creating memories that will last a lifetime with your children this summer at The Disneyland Resort.
