We knew that this day coming since the announcement was made that a new Marvel-themed land is coming to Disney California Adventure last year, but now Disney has officially announced A Bug’s Land in Disney California Adventure is closing September 4th, 2018.
A Bug’s Land opened in 2002 shortly after the initial California Adventure opening, and is home to 4 attractions, all geared toward small kids. Some of the old A Bug’s Land attractions though will be put to good use as the new Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind attraction coming to Pixar Pier is actually the old Flik’s Flyers attraction, just reimagined. This will make up for the loss of all the kids’ attractions from A Bug’s Land.
The new Marvel Land in California Adventure is one of three Marvel-themed lands coming to Disney parks around the world (Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong the others) and will have the current Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission BREAKOUT! attractions and at least two more attractions. One is rumored to be a Spider-Man themed attraction, possibly a dark-ride of sorts and the other is an Avengers attractions, possibly a roller coaster.
Disney is saying the Marvel Land will be open in California Adventure in 2020, which I’m a bit surprised by seeing as we haven’t really seen any significant construction progress made yet. Stay tuned!
In the meantime, make sure to get over to A Bug’s Land one more time before September 4th if you want to enjoy it again before closing.
