It’s going to be a “Summer of Heroes” this year at Disney California Adventure, with the Disneyland Resort having just announced the opening date of its Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT attraction, plus all-new Marvel superhero-themed experiences at the Happiest Place on Earth.
The Guardians ride will open May 27th, just a few weeks after Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” movie hits theaters.
As if that weren’t enough, now Guardians fans will be able to meet and greet with Groot himself!
In addition to the main Guardians of the Galaxy attraction, Disneyland will be offering a number of new draws for Marvel enthusiasts, including the year-round Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance-Off! and Super Hero Encounters, where fans can interact and have their photo taken with Groot and the already-present Spider-Man and Captain America.

An official press release from Disney also appears to confirm future Marvel expansions coming to Disney California Adventure: “Summer of Heroes inaugurates an ever-expanding universe of Super Hero stories at Disney California Adventure that will become even bigger over time.”
