Galaxy’s Edge has opened up in Disneyland but Disney isn’t stopping the construction anytime soon!
They have their new Marvel land expansion project going on in Disney California Adventure. This new Marvel themed area is slated to open in 2020.
The city of Anaheim has approved some building permits for projects related to the expansion such as a retail outlet, bathroom renovation, microbrewery, character meet and greet area, and improvements to the behind-the-scenes buildings.
Matthew Gottula on Twitter posted the following about the new permits.
A Bug’s Land had no major shops (remember P.T. Flea Market which closed in 2010?), but the Marvel-themed Super Hero campus certainly will. 2,071 square feet of merchandise space for all things Spider-Man, according to this permit. https://t.co/na70784rKJ pic.twitter.com/URMKilOkKE

One of the permits is for a “New Commercial Construction: 2,071 sq ft merchandise building. 446 sq ft for (3) attached canopies.”
One tagged Avengers says “Two story building with rooftop platform for show props, Merchandise 2,401 sq.ft core/shell only, Business/Storage occupancy 6,146 sq.ft includes back of house green room, retail and storage. Pedestrian walkway 445, stair tower 1030.3.”
Another permit is for the brewery titled “Pimm Restaurant” like Hank Pym?
“DCA – Golden State Expansion / Bldg 753 – New Commercial Construction: 8,778 sq.ft first floor restaurant and second fl equipment room. Canopies 4,769 q.ft and outdoor dining area 4,621 sq.ft. ”
According to the LA Times the value assessment of the work is more than $14 million dollars.
Representatives for Disney have refused to comment on what will be included in the new land, but have teased something in regards to Spider-man.
Hopefully we will find out more during D23 this year, taking place at the Anaheim Convention Center from August 23rd-25th! What we do know is that Marvel attractions are also planned for Hong Kong Disneyland in 2023, at Walt Disney Studios Park in France for 2020 at the Epcot in 2021.
