Marvel coming to the Disneyland Resort made for great speculation for several months (years?), didn’t it? But now the time for anticipation is here…
Today, Marvel, doubling down on a recent report in the New York Times, posted the concept art for their upcoming Spider-Man attraction in Disney California Adventure.
Our own Jack Kendall covered this news last week (on Nov. 16) via video:

While you can have a great encounter with Spider-Man at Disney California Adventure at the Disneyland Resort, things are going to get even more exciting for fans of the wall-crawling Super Hero when Spider-Man gets his own attraction as part of an immersive new Super Hero-themed land opening at Disney California Adventure in 2020.
We now have a new look at concept art for the Spider-Man attraction, as first seen in the New York Times. Take a look at the art above, depicting the building the attraction will be housed in and giving fans an idea of what to expect as they approach it while walking through the land.
Stay tuned for more news on the development of the Super Hero-themed land coming to Disney California Adventure!
For my children, more than any single IP beyond Mickey Mouse, “Spider-Man” — and by extension, the MCU — reigns supreme (even above Star Wars, much to my chagrin).
So, it’s a no-brainer to me that Disney would go in this direction.
And, I was chatting with Jack today about the kind of attraction that we might expect in 2020. I agree with Mr. Kendall, that “it would be questionable whether Disney would put a Shooter style Screen ride in the same park as Toy Story Mania.”
So, it remains to be seen what (or who) exactly we might encounter when Spider-Man hits California Adventure.
But what do you think? What type of attraction do you expect to see in a couple of years?
