Avengers Campus was meant to open in 2020. Now, Disneyland fans can buy a toy from the area for the holiday season.

Throughout the day at Avengers Headquarters at Avengers Campus inside Disney California Adventure Park in Anaheim, California, recruits may encounter epic, live-action moments with Avengers heading off the threat of their foes.

Disneyland planned to open the Avengers Campus in 2020. But, like all plans in 2020, those plans disintegrated like ashes in “Infinity Wars.”

Still, Disney Parks announced recently it is selling a new toy from the campus for the holiday season. That toy? The spider-bot.

What’s going on?

Toys and apparel based on the Worldwide Engineering Brigade, or WEB, will be available at Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort, and at World of Disney and Disneyland Resort Backlot Premiere Shop beginning Dec. 4.

  • WEB is a group or brand that will appear on apparel and toys throughout Avengers Campus.

The spider-bots are the big toy for the holiday season. The toy will “put you in control of the action to battle opponents with programmed combat and defensive abilities,” according to Disney Parks.

  • The toy can rotate 360 degrees, crawl backwards and forwards and light up with laser eyes.
  • The video below shows you everything you need to know.

Disneyland planned to open the Avengers Campus in July, as I wrote about on the same day that Tom Hanks tested positive for COVID-19 and the world went into chaos.

Disney California Adventure Park planned to open the new experience on July 18, which would have lined up with the park’s 55th anniversary the day before.

  • “When we set out to create these extraordinary Super Hero experiences across the globe, we designed a new Spider-Man attraction for Disney California Adventure park in an immersive land with amazing character experiences,” said Scot Drake, portfolio creative executive for Walt Disney Imagineering, in a statement. “We also crafted an original story that ties all the experiences together in ways that are authentic to these characters. We worked side-by-side with teams that brought the Avengers films and comics to life to create a place that champions the next generation of heroes.”

Disneyland remains closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, so it’s unclear when the campus will open. Reports suggest the park could reopen in January 2021.
