Insider previewed Avengers Campus at Disneyland Paris on July 20.
The land is filled with nods to Marvel movies and shows and other Disney parks.
From Deadpool to a Peggy Carter room, here are the best ones you don’t want to miss when you visit.
Deadpool appears briefly on the Avengers Assemble: Force Flight attraction queue.
A mention of Wade Wilson appears during an approximately nine-minute video inside the attraction’s queue.
On the attraction, Iron Man/Tony Stark learns a Kree missile is heading towards Earth to destroy it.
Seeking help, Tony goes through his list of contacts and the names of various Marvel characters flash on the screen.
Deadpool is featured under a “Do Not Contact” list of Marvel characters which also includes Kraglin, Nebula, and Yondu of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Loki, Brock Rumlov aka Crossbones, Sonny Burch (“Ant-Man and the Wasp” villain”), and former Stark Industries’ scientist William Ginter Riva who reappeared in 2019’s “Spider-Man: Far From Home” working with Mysterio.
The antihero is one of many Marvel characters to make a cameo on the attraction queue. Spider-Girl, Miles Morales, Wiz Kid, and Squirrel Girl are among other names to pop up.
When the video scrolls by the list of Peter Parker’s Worldwide Engineering Brigade (W.E.B.) buddies, you can spot a few younger heroes who haven’t appeared in the MCU yet: Doreen A. Green aka Squirrel Girl, Gwen Stacy aka Spider-Woman/Spider-Gwen, Miles Morales, Lunella Lafayette aka Moon Girl, Takeshi Matsuya aka Wiz Kid, and Anya Corazon aka Spider-Girl.
Harley Keener (“Iron Man 3“) can also be spotted among the youngsters’ names.
Most of these characters are mentioned on lockers inside the Spider-Man W.E.B. Adventure.
The Time Variance Authority from Disney+’s “Loki” is also referenced in the same video.
Avengers Campus at Disneyland Paris takes place in the vast Marvel multiverse. (It’s the answer you get from Disney if you ask how Tony Stark exists on Avengers Campus when he died in “Avengers: Endgame.”)
On “Loki,” we learned all about the multiverse and how there are variant versions of characters.
It’s not too sur
prising to see the Time Variance Authority (TVA) mentioned on the attraction. At Disneyland’s California theme park, a variant version of Loki appeared after the show debuted on Disney+.
It’s more interesting to learn that this Tony Stark has an awareness of the TVA.
Ms. Marvel appears in the same video in a nod to Disney’s newest cruise, Disney Wish.
One of the biggest surprises is that Ms. Marvel appears in the Force Flight queue video.
Not only is it a direct connection to her Disney+ show, but Ms. Marvel’s cameo is a reference to her appearance on the new Disney Wish cruise, connecting Marvel stories across Disney experiences so they don’t feel random and singular.
In the same video clip, Iron Man refers to Sam Wilson as Captain America.
The red wine at Pym Kitchen comes bottled in a glass particle tube that you’ll want to take a close look at.
The label on the tube showcases the molecule for the wine.
Ant-Man’s daughter, Cassie Lang, is mentioned on the place mat at Pym Kitchen.
In the comics, Scott Lang’s daughter eventually becomes a hero named Stinger aka Ant-Girl.
Two signs in Pym Kitchen humorously warn guests to use Pym Particles responsibly.
Ant-Man uses Pym Particles to shrink or grow large.
Two signs in the Pym Kitchen restaurant seating area tell guests to not use the enlarging Pym Particle inside a building, illustrating that they’ll need a roof repair.
The second image hilariously warns guests not to use the shrinking Pym Particle near wildlife or they may become bird chow.
Black Panther and Black Widow’s gear can be found hanging in a display cage in Stark Factory.
During a Walt Dis
ney Imagineering panel on the creation of Avengers Campus, Björn Heerwagen, director of show design and production, told press, including Insider, that the gear in the display case will be rotated out when new films come out.
“We wanted to put the prop cages in to do a shout-out to the films, but it also means that as films come out we can change our props so that our fans can kind of go, ‘Oh that’s come in there from this film,'” Heerwagen said.
Peggy Carter has an office inside Stark Factory filled with Easter eggs.
The filing cabinets behind Peggy’s desk reference other Avengers Campuses, Marvel characters, test cases, and more.
The 16 drawers on the first filing cabinet on the left reference Howard Stark inventions and research, Project Rebirth (the Super Soldier project), Steve Rogers case files, Winter Soldier intel, Red Room (“Black Widow“) intel, Hydra intel, research by Dr. Zola and Dr. Erskine, vibranium and Tesseract test studies, and files and test subjects for Project Paperclip (referenced in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier“).
The 18 drawers on the second filing cabinet reference other Avengers Campus locations, including the Paris one, and Strategic Scientific Reserve (SSR) archives.
Most interesting are two drawers labeled “Active Missions: Hong Kong” and “Active Missions: Shanghai,” referencing areas at Hong Kong Disneyland and Shanghai Disneyland. Both parks contain Marvel attractions.
There are also drawers referencing a Valkyrie plane case archive (“Thor” franchise), Red Skull, and Camp Lehigh.
Avengers Campus’ art director Beth Clapperton can be spotted on the land’s Fan-tastic food truck.
“The producer of Avengers Campus thought it would be fun if I pose as the fictional owner of that food truck,” Clapperton told me during an interview inside Avengers Campus.
“I am an Avengers fan and I have gone around the world and I have taken selfies of myself in certain Avengers iconic spots,” Clapperton added.
On the truck, you can find eight different photos of Clapperton along the side and back of the truck.
She and the food truck have visited California’s Avengers Campus, the Stark tower, Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum, and New Asgard (which appears in “Thor: Love and Thunder”).
The Fan-tastic Food truck is filled with other Easter eggs, including nods to the Stark Expo.
