Although the California Disney theme parks are currently closed, work is still taking place behind the gates. Marvel fans and Walt Disney Imagineering enthusiasts certainly have something to look forward to in 2021 as work continues on Avengers Campus, the all-new Marvel-themed land at Disneyland Resort.
The most recent news of Disneyland construction comes from theme park fans and bloggers Discover the Magic (@discover.themagic), who shared a video of exterior lighting being tested at Avengers Campus inside the Disney Park.
Take a look:
Avengers Campus is testing exterior lighting now, and can be seen from inside Disney California Adventure Park. 🤩✨#disneyland #disneylandcalifornia #disneylandsecrets #disneylandresort
As you can see in the video above — and in the image provided to Inside the Magic — exterior lighting is being tested throughout the land. What we are specifically excited about is the lighting on the side of the new Spider-Man attraction building.
The ride — which stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker and is called WEB-SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure — is set to open when Avengers Campus opens sometime in 2021. We have been excited for this attraction for well over a year ever since it was officially announced at D23 Expo in Anaheim in 2019, but the illuminated logo is truly a sight to behold.
The video was shot from inside Disney California Adventure, as a small area of the park is currently open for shopping and dining only. As we have experienced ourselves when we visited Buena Vista Street when it reopened on November 19, Guests can get a peek inside Avengers Campus while standing just across from one of the land’s entrances. If you are planning to visit sometime soon, there’s a chance you may even see Disney Cast Members working inside Avengers Campus while you’re there!

Avengers Campus is still listed as “coming soon” on the official Disneyland Resort website. However, as we know from Disney’s announcements in late 2020, the company expects to open the land in 2021 when the Southern California Disney Parks (Disneyland and Disney California Adventure). Although the theme parks are closed amid the ongoing pandemic and due to the guidelines in place, the Downtown Disney District and, by extension, Buena Vista Street are currently open for shopping and outdoor dining, albeit with limited capacity and other health and safety protocol.
