In a thorough interview with the OC Register (OCR), Disney California Adventure (DCA) Vice President Patrick Finnegan (Finnegan) talked about the future of the park past the forthcoming Avengers Campus.
Whilst Finnegan acknowledged that fans have been writing in about the retheming of Tower of Terror wondering why Disney would reimagine a classic, he said it was all part of a larger plan and that Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission Breakout was always meant to anchor the various Marvel land concepts.
“We knew we would be doing an Avengers-themed land,” Finnegan said. “We had a few options. We hadn’t quite landed on exactly where, but we knew that it would be anchored in some way, shape or form off of this attraction.”
Whilst the interview (main article) touches on bits and pieces of the “DCA 2.0” reimagining, it would be fair to suggest the next project came to our attention.
When the superheroes that currently meet and greet guests in Hollywood Land this summer, Disney looking at the move as a chance to focus on that area of DCA.
“As the Avengers are moving out, we’re certainly looking at, ‘OK, does something need to move in? Does it go back to where it was?” Finnegan said on the Hollywood Land back lot. “It’s very much something that we’re talking about.”
What those plans might be haven’t been revealed yet by Disney. Whilst the space taken up by the existing Hollywood Land attractions, shops and more is significant, there really doesn’t appear to be much room for expansion which doesn’t involve a “wrecking ball”.
However, Disney could always reimagine the space just like they did with the Paradise Pier to Pixar Pier reimagining. Stay tuned to Orlando Theme Park Zone for more on this story.
