Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Bob Chapek unveiled details on the new attractions at the annual event, which showcases the latest offerings from Disney.

Avengers assemble at Disneyland
Guests can suit up alongside their favorite superheroes at the Avengers Campus, beginning in 2020 at Disney California Adventure park; the concept will later be featured at Disneyland Paris. Both campuses will feature the first Disney ride-through attraction to feature Spider-Man.
At Disneyland, the Avengers Headquarters building will become the future entrance to a brand-new E-Ticket attraction. Guests will also encounter their favourite heroes throughout the attraction and may even catch a glimpse of the Avengers along the rooftops of the Avengers Headquarters.
Even more Star Wars
Hot on the heels of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the Star Wars: Galactic Star Cruiser, an immersive ‘vacation within a vacation’ in which guests will embark on a two-night adventure aboard the Halcyon for a simulated trip into space. Similar to an ocean cruise, the interactive experience features a “spaceport” day at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and guests can interact with various characters from the Star Wars franchise, which will determine the outcome of the experience.
Disney Cruise Line makes a Wish
Three new ships are coming to the Disney Cruise Line fleet, with the first of the three ships – the Disney Wish – to be delivered in late 2021, setting sail in January 2022.
Guests can also look forward to a signature island experience that celebrates nature and the spirit and culture of The Bahamas at a new Disney port of call located on the island of Eleuthera at Lighthouse Point.
