Marvel Summer of Super Heroes has begun at Disneyland Paris. We were there for the kickoff and then for some of the first official day. Marvel Summer of Super Heroes runs through September 30th, 2018 – the day before the Halloween season begins. I am glad we were able to span several events through out trip, beginning with the surprisingly fantastic Festival of Pirates and Princesses and ending with Marvel Summer of Super Heroes. And with still a couple days of our trip left, this article will be a work in progress this week – I will add more over the coming days.
Marvel characters from Disneyland Paris at opening event.
The Production Courtyard has three giant statues – Black Panther, Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk. These were installed last week and have been very popular with guests for photos.
Themed food items were added at the time the statues appeared, and these can be found around the Production Courtyard and Disney Studio 1 primarily. We have tried some of the sweeter items, with my favorite so far being the Groot shortbread with chocolate hazelnut filling. The themed beignets are good too, the cupcakes for me are just so-so. A very popular item has been the Marvel burger in Restaurant En Coulisse, it has been a huge hit with everyone we know that has tried it (and I am sure I will soon). The Groot bread has also been well received.
There are two shows and then a Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Dance-Off in the Production Courtyard. The first show is Marvel: Super Heroes United. I was focused on photographing the show we saw so I won’t review the show itself (some of the effects also weren’t working in the show I did watch). But here is the information on it, and then our video. The show is heavy on stunts, as is Stark Expo presents: Energy for Tomorrow!, which is played outside.
From Disney: Immerse in the origins of greatness with this never-seen-before show super-charged with live Characters and ground-smashing, heroic special effects. Feel your Spider-Sense tingle as Marvel legends Iron Man and Captain America battle each other before uniting with Spider-Man and Black Widow to bring down the baddest supervillain of them all, Thanos. With thrilling flashbacks showing how each hero discovered their powers, this is an experience you don’t want to miss.
Here is our video, along with a few photos. The show features a lot of favorite Marvel characters, including Black Panther, Black Widow, Spider-Man and Iron Man.
