The New York Times has a huge article talking about the investments that Disney Parks will be making over the next few years. The big highlight is that the article confirms that a Spider-Man attraction will be the centerpiece of a brand new Marvel themed land at Disney’s California Adventure. The artwork above shows off the outer building which is having an “open house” with the Avengers symbol, “Stark Motive” and of course the web head himself swinging off.
The ride was originally said to be a swinging coaster, but those plans might have changed in recent months.
In other news, the article goes on to confirm certain rumors, such as the overhaul of Spaceship Earth at Epcot and the Avengers Ride for Hong Kong Disneyland.
The article also mentions Star Wars-Galaxy’s Edge briefly, and describes 50 animatronic stormtroopers for the First Order attraction. That has to be the most animatronics outside of Its a Small World.
The Millennium Falcon attraction uses a special real time video rendering system, invented by Industrial Light and Magic just for the ride. Guests will have over 200 controls to use in the cockpit of the Falcon, and what they do on the ride will (as we’ve been told from the get go) will follow them throughout the land.
Overall, Disney will invest over $24 billion in new attractions and cruise ships in the next five years, which will hopefully pay off huge for the parks.
