Hello everyone,

Until the 10th of September you can enjoy the Summer of Heroes at Disney California Adventure park. We were there last week, and so I have prepared this special guide to every aspect of the Summer of Heroes for those of you visiting within the next two months.

Avengers Training Initiative


You can watch Hawkeye and Black Widow as they join forces with some new recruits (guests' kids) to defeat the evil Arnim Zola. Similar in concept to the Jedi Training Academy, this Marvel version of the interactive experience offers something a little more exciting for adults, with its more daring stunts.

Heroic Encounter with Hawkeye and Black Widow


Several times per day Hawkeye and Black Widow roll out on the Avengers Jeep (alternately, not at the same time), checking for suspicious happenings throughout Hollywood Land, before stopping for a meet and greet near Monsters Inc.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off!


Star-Lord is searching the galaxy for his boombox, and he just happens to find it in front of Taneleer Tivan's ("The Collector") newly landed fortress in Hollywood Land! Gamora joins him, but needs some help in finding the music inside her. Perhaps an unsuspecting guest will provide the encouragement she needs?...

Character Greetings


Aside from Black Widow and Hawkeye's greetings after their Jeep ride-around, you can line up without as much fanfare for Gamora, Groot, Captain America and Spider-Man.

It isn't often you get something cool for free, but for the Summer of Heroes, you can do just that! Get your face painted with a Marvel theme at select locations in Hollywood Land.

The Collector's Warehouse


Located within his mobile fortress that has landed in Hollywood Land, The Collector's Warehouse sells items that The Collector has decided he no longer needs in his collection. There are actually some really fun items for sale!

Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT!


Finally, we come to the brand new attraction that opened this summer in Hollywood Land, Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT! The attraction of course uses the same technology as the Hollywood Tower Hotel that proceeded it, but now with a Guardians of the Galaxy twist. Your mission is to help Rocket Racoon breakout his friends from The Collector's fortress.

I'll share some photos of the outside of the building first, and then I'll give a warning before proceeding inside, for those who have not experienced it yet and do not want to spoil the surprise.

Ok, if you haven't experienced the attraction yet, and do not wish to see the queue interior and the attraction photo that is taken whilst riding, then you can close this page now! There isn't anything else in this article after these photos.
