Disneyland Paris has announced its long-awaited Marvel Avengers Campus will open on 20 July, 2022.

The immersive Marvel-themed area is a first for the European Disney park and is part of a two-billion-euro, multi-year transformation underway at Walt Disney Studios Park, which will also introduce new areas dedicated to Frozen and Star Wars in the coming years.

The Marvel Avengers Campus, opening as part of the park's 30th anniversary celebrations, has been designed to allow Marvel fans to unleash their inner superhero and includes themed rides, shops, experiences, and a huge cast of interactive characters.
