Superhero fans will be given a taste of what it’s like to have superpowers on a new web-slinging Spider-Man ride in Disneyland Paris’s Avengers-themed world.
Details of the attraction were announced by Disney Parks chairman Bob Chapek at the company’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, where he also revealed a raft of new attractions planned for other Disney resorts around the world.
These include the first-ever Mary Poppins attraction and a Guardians of the Galaxy ride at Epcot in Florida as well as Zootopia-themed land at Shanghai Disney Resort.

Disneyland Paris’s Marvel-themed land was announced last year, but at the weekend’s D23 Expo it was confirmed the new land would be called Avengers Campus.
The campus will boast Disney’s first ride-through attraction to feature Spider-Man.
It will see guests help Spider-Man sling webs in order to collect Spider-Bots that have run amok.
In addition, Avengers Campus will feature Pym Test Kitchen where Pym Technologies is using the latest innovations to grow and shrink food.
Guests will also get to encounter a range of superheroes throughout the campus, including Ant-Man and The Wasp, Doctor Strange, the Guardians of the Galaxy, super heroes from Wakanda and Asgard, and Iron Man.
And Disney says visitors may even catch a glimpse of the Avengers along the rooftops of the Avengers Headquarters.
An Avengers Campus is also planned for Disney’s California Adventure theme park. It is set to open in 2020
More details were also released about the new Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel that is opening at Disneyland Paris next summer.
Disney says the hotel will celebrate 80 years of Marvel art and artists, with more than 300 pieces on display.
Rooms will include one-of-a-kind themed suites featuring Spider-Man, among others, and guests can even meet characters in a dedicated space.
The same Avengers Campus is also planned for Disney’s California Adventure theme park.
The only difference is that the California park’s Avengers Headquarters will form the entrance to a ride that features the Avengers on a mission in Wakanda, the fictional land from the film Black Panther.

It will be located in a new Cherry Tree Lane neighbourhood that will be housed in the United Kingdom pavilion in World Showcase, the area around a lagoon that shows off pavilions from almost a dozen nations.
Other changes in this area will include a new attraction based on the animated film Ratatouille in the French pavilion, as well as a new French restaurant.
