8 Ways to Celebrate 80 Years of Super Heroes at Disney California Adventure
Though most of the attention at Disneyland Resort has been paid on the 50th Anniversary of The Haunted Mansion, there’s another very important milestone coming up at the end of the month. August 31st officially marks 80 years of Super Heroes! Luckily for Disney fans, there are many ways to celebrate this milestone at Disney California Adventure park including specially curated food and merchandise!
To give you a taste of the heroic fun that awaits here are 8 ways you can celebrate Super Heroes during your DCA visit!
Join Rocket on a Mission
Hop aboard the gantry lift at the Collector’s fortress on Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! and help Rocket rescue his fellow guardians. It also wouldn’t be a Guardians of the Galaxy ride without a killer soundtrack. As a special treat Annual Passholders can enjoy an extra hour of Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT after park closing from August 25 – August 31st and will also receive a special lithograph (while supplies last., 1 per passholder.)
Power Up With Super Hero-inspired Treats
To mark the “Super” occasion, Disney is offering up some eats and treats fit for a hero! To quench your thirst, Fanta Orange Freeze with Blue Cream is returning to the Studio Catering Co. There’s also the Be Brave, Be Blue cocktail, with Vodka* and Blue Raspberry Lemonade at Hollywood Lounge. While at the Lounge, pick up fresh-baked sourdough Groot-shaped bread! At Award Wieners, indulge in Super Hero-inspired, cinnamon-sugar dusted Funnel Cake Fries with Maple Glaze, Crumbled Bacon and Chocolate Cookie Crumbles. These speciality items will be available August 23 through Sept. 2.
Mingle With Some of Your Favorite Super Heroes
Add a heroic encounter to your Disney visit with legendary Super Heroes like Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Captain America and Spider-Man in Hollywood Land throughout your visit. Also, be on the lookout for Star-Lord and Gamora who will be on hand to teach out a dance move or two during Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Dance Off!
