Avengers, BBQ, and Construction Walls Galore: Disneyland Photo Report 5/10/22

Hey there, hi there, ho there! We headed down to the Disneyland Resort to meet some Avengers and have some lunch. We accomplished both of those objectives and found some other updates to bring you as well. So join us for this most recent photo report from both parks and Downtown Disney.

Disney California Adventure

We rope dropped Avengers Campus, but unlike so many others who did the same just to get on WEB Slingers, we were there to meet some heroes.

One hero in particular. Wanda Maximoff, the Scarlet Witch, has arrived in Avengers Campus.

Welcome to the roster, Wanda.

Throughout the day, we met so many of the Avengers. All of them, in fact.

We saw Black Widow foiling a plot by Taskmaster.

We saw (sometimes) estranged brothers reconciling.

We got a lesson in the mystic arts.

We trained with the Dora Milaje under the watchful eyes of Black Panther.

And we met the newest recruit on the Avengers team, America Chavez.

She was summoned by Doctor Strange during his lesson in the mystic arts, and proceeded to explore the campus afterwards. You can see the full show now featuring America Chavez on our YouTube channel, or by clicking on the video below:

Within the shops of Buena Vista Street, we found this Rapunzel bow and arrow set. It’s not wholly new, as it had been available on shopDisney, but it is new to the parks.

We also found this super cute Mickey shirt and a matching drawstring bag.

And some more of the Coach x Disney collection has finally made its way out here to the West Coast.

Ok. Time to head into the rest of the park.

Construction walls still surround the façade of The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s Undersea Adventure. The ride remains open, despite the work being done outside.

And the World of Color fountains are raised again.

We noticed another new gondola on the Pixar Pal-a-Round. After the recent addition of Meilin Lee in both her human and Red Panda forms from “Turning Red,” we found a gondola has been dedicated to characters from “Soul.” Joe Gardner is featured on one side, and Mr. Mittens is featured on the other.

We had to stop in and admire the miniatures in Sarge’s Surplus Hut over in Cars Land. These small sets are the perfect size to display the toy cars that are available in the shop, and make for some really fun pictures.

After all that, we had worked up quite an appetite. The Family Picnic Platter on the newly revamped menu at Paradise Garden Grill was just our speed. Take a look at our full review of everything on offer here. And you can find a video review of our menu tasting on our YouTube page, or by clicking on the video below:

Downtown Disney

The back end of Downtown Disney has been the site of demolition recently as the buildings are cleared to make way for a reimagining. It appears now that all of the demolition has been completed and the land has been cleared, ready for new construction.

Nearby at the Star Wars Trading Post, we found a whole collection of vintage-action-figure-themed apparel. Take a look at the collection as well as some new Tropical Star Wars apparel.


It is 1 o’clock sharp, and that means park hop time.

Mickey was very excited that we had arrived.

The main mouse can be found on this new pin celebrating the 30th anniversary of Fantasmic! that we found on Main Street, U.S.A.

We also found several newly released pins today, from monthly series pins to special occasions, and more.

Working our way across the park, we just had to take a ride on Hyperspace Mountain. You can ride along with us on our YouTube channel, or by clicking the video below:

Nearby, some of the photo ops from May the Fourth have been left out for all guests to enjoy, and even have Disney Photopass photographers on site.

The first bit of weatherproofing has been installed on the spire of the El CapiTOON Theater in the currently closed Mickey’s Toontown.

Over in Adventureland, the former Tarzan’s Treehouse is undergoing a retheming and renovation. The tree that was once the entrance is slowly being removed, and the rope bridge that connected it to the rest of the treehouse has now been removed fully.

Nearby, New Orleans Square is still a maze of construction walls as the entire area, and Pirates of the Caribbean are all being refurbished.

Traffic flow becomes a problem with so many squeezed walkways and dead ends, but hopefully, this will all be for the better, and traffic will move better than ever before once this is all done.

But let’s be honest, when is traffic not an issue in Disneyland? It may be crowded, but we still had a great time today.

One final parting shot from the park. A very faint rainbow can be seen running through the clouds behind Splash Mountain. It may not be super defined, but it was still nice to have another magical moment before we left.

Well, that’s it from us here at Disneyland. We’re glad you rode along. Be sure to leave a comment below, letting us know what you think of the photo report. We’ll see ya real soon!
