Attractions in Avengers Campus
- NEW – Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure – more details about this attraction and how to get on it below.
- Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission Breakout (40” or taller) at this time the only way to enjoy this attraction is when you are inside Avengers Campus!
Dining at Avengers Campus
Let’s start with some dining tips. Creating a mobile order in the app does not guarantee access into the land. The app let’s you know that you can only place a mobile order once you’re in the land. This process keeps changing. When you get into the land if the mobile orders are all gone keep checking. Disney keeps adding times as availability is opened. And there are stand by lines for each location you can always check those out.
- Pym Test Kitchen – serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with pretzels, salads, sandwiches (home to the new family sized Pym-ini for $99.99, feeds 6-8 people) use mobile order
- Pym Tasting Lab – Lounge with alcoholic drinks mostly (use mobile order)
- Shawarma Palace – serves different wraps for breakfast, lunch and dinner (use mobile order.)
Over next to Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission Breakout is more dining.
- Terran Treats – churro treats and more (stand in line only)
- Shawarma Palace Too – serves the same menu as Shawarma Palace, but is located around the corner near the Hyperion Theatre. Head over to this location for a shorter line.

How to get inside Avengers Campus
Due to high demand at the moment, Avengers Campus is not available to freely walk in and out like we are used to. Because there is limited capacity there are only 2 ways to get inside the land. One way is if you have a boarding group for the Web Slingers attraction. See at the bottom of this post how to get one. The second way is to enter the land from the stand-by queue. When the park opens a line is formed. It starts at the land opening and wraps down around near the pier. I have seen wait times up to 4 hours. To avoid this line arrive at the gates early in the morning. Tips on early morning arrival can be found here. If you arrive early then you can avoid waiting very long in the stand-by queue. You may even be one of the first to go straight into the land instead of waiting at all. Once you are in the land you are free to stay as long as you like. Then when you leave the only way to get back in is by standing in line again or with a boarding group to Web Slingers. At the end of the night around 7 p.m. they do cut the stand by line off. So hop in the line before 7 p.m. if you want a shorter wait time. This is the current situation. It will not always require a stand-by line to get inside Avengers Campus. As things change I will update this post. So come back and check when it’s time for your visit.

Other Avengers Campus tips
There is not a lot of shade or seating inside Avengers Campus. So when you get ready to eat scope out a table first. If you can’t find one there is more seating around by the Hyperion Theatre. There is only 1 bathroom in Avengers Campus. The next closest bathroom is near Flo’s in Carsland. Also inside the land there is a water bottle refill station.
Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure
On this new attraction you will embark on an adventure alongside Spider-Man. This attraction is for everyone, any height. Disney will be utilizing the virtual queue system in order to ride WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure. The attraction’s virtual queue is only accessible via the Disneyland mobile app. You may only experience the attraction by joining the virtual queue. Similar to Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, virtual queue enrollment times will be twice daily, at 7 a.m. and 12 p.m. In order to give as many Guests as possible the opportunity to sling webs alongside Spider-Man, each Guest can enter the virtual queue no more than once per day. For information about how to join the virtual queue read here about how it works currently for Star Wars: Rise fo the Resistance. You will use the same process to get a boarding group for Web Slingers. The only difference is the park you choose on this page! See photo below. For the step by step process though make sure you read the HOW TO JOIN A VIRTUAL QUEUE! I highly recommend practicing in the app from home.
Starting the Day at Disney California Adventure
Guests with a valid ticket and theme park reservation, who will start their day at DCA, can access the virtual queue system via the Disneyland app and check for an available boarding group starting at 7:00 AM on the day of their park reservation. Guests who were unable to join a boarding at that time may check for an available boarding group beginning at 12:00 PM. This can be done before you leave your hotel, home, or wherever else you may be at that time. You’ll need to have park tickets linked to your Disney account and applicable theme park reservations.
Starting the Day at DCA or Disneyland (with a Park Hopper Ticket)
To access the virtual queue opportunity beginning at 12:00 PM, Guests must have a valid ticket and park reservation, and have entered DCA, or Disneyland with a Park Hopper ticket, by noon. Guests beginning their day at Disneyland may then enter DCA with their Park Hopper ticket after 1:00 PM for their boarding group, as applicable. You’ll receive a push notification via the Disneyland app if your group is called to return. You’ll have up to an hour from the time of the alert to go to the entrance of WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure.
The only way to experience WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure is with valid admission into DCA and via the virtual queue. No standby lines are available. Access to a boarding group is subject to availability and not guaranteed. Distribution times are subject to change or cancellation. Joining the virtual queue does not guarantee the ability to experience WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure.
VERY IMPORTANT TIP
Guests may only enter a virtual queue once per day for each attraction, and may not hold a boarding group for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure at the same time. So potentially you could get a boarding group at 7 am for WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure. Then let’s say your group is called at 10 am. Now you get in line and go on the attraction. You’d be done in time to then at noon go onto the app and try to grab a Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance boarding group if you have a park hopper ticket. I have confirmed it works, you can get both boarding groups in one day if all the stars align! This works both ways. You can ride Rise of the Resistance and then Web Slingers if the timing works in your favor. Below are screenshots from a follower on Instagram who was successful getting on both rides using my tips!
Guests with Disabilities
You must join the queue as explained above. Then once your group is called you go to the attraction and tell the cast member you need a return time. It will work like other attractions from this point on.
I plan to visit Avengers Campus the week of June 15th when out of state guests are allowed. In the meantime make sure you’re following along on Instagram. As news or more details are shared I will update this post. If you’re looking for information about Disneyland reopening head over here.
