Rumor: Disneyland Spending Freeze To Possibly Effect Avengers Campus and Runaway Railway


It’s time for another rumor. This one comes from WDWinfo and they credit WDWMagic.

The rumor is that Disneyland has a spending freeze in effect.

With this freeze it will effect both the Avengers Campus and the upcoming Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway that is scheduled for 2022 in the ToonTown area.

The Avengers Campus:

Rumors are swirling that the big Avengers E-Ticket attraction is on hold. This won’t impact the Phase one attractions that will be rolling out this summer, but it phase two could be effected.

Phase one will include the Spider-Man attraction, Pym Test Kitchen (Ant-Man and the Wasp) Restaurant, a Doctor Strange Show and a Spider-man roof-top show. Those should remain as they are.

It’s the unnamed (most likely Black Panther based) attraction that was coming with Phase 2 that is reportedly in stasis. Not that we knew much about it anyways.

The second part of the rumor is a delay in Disneyland’s “Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway” attraction coming to Toontown.

Right now it’s just stating it could be a delay. This also happened with the one at Walt Disney World, it was delayed for about a year.

But unlike the Walt Disney World version, Disneyland will need a complete building to house the attraction as well as the attraction build itself. The new ride building will be called the El Capitoon Theater.

That might make it a bit pricier, but since it’s a copy of the Walt Disney World attraction, it should offset some of that expense.

Of course it’s all rumor right now. Nothing has been confirmed by Disney.

I just thought it was interesting and it supports the idea that Disney is trying to cut costs and recoup more money.

What do you think? Comment and let us know!
