New character encounters, limited-edition merch, and more experiences are coming to Disney theme parks and cruises around the world to celebrate the release of the latest Ant-Man movie.
Another installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is here, and it’s an all-new film featuring Ant-Man and the Wasp! While Ant-Man might be the smallest of the Avengers, his adventures are taking center stage in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which hit theaters on February 17, 2023. To celebrate the release of the film, Disney has announced that new experiences, merchandise, and more will be coming to theme parks and Disney Cruise Line.
Fans of Ant-Man and the Wasp won’t want to miss these special opportunities! Below, find out the details about where you can meet characters, check out new Ant-Man experiences, and more.
Kang the Conqueror is Coming to Disney California Adventure Park
One of the most exciting moments in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is the introduction of Kang the Conqueror (played by Jonathan Majors). Longtime Marvel fans have been waiting to see Kang in action as a supervillain, and this film finally brings him into the fold as he faces off with Ant-Man and the Wasp.
Guests will get the chance to meet the mysterious Kang in person, too! Kang the Conqueror is coming to Disney California Adventure Park, where he’ll move throughout Avengers Campus, engaging with potential recruits and looking for inside information on the heroes in this timeline. He’ll only be at California Adventure for a limited time, so don’t miss this chance to see him!
Experience PYM Technology Firsthand at Disneyland Paris
If you want the rare opportunity to witness Scott Lang’s special technology for yourself, Avengers Campus at Disneyland Paris offers the opportunity to do just that!
In celebration of the release of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Guests can see PYM technology in action as recruits. Ant-Man and the Wasp are both present at the park, just returned from their quantum journey and ready to show you how the growing and shrinking capability happens. You can also head to PYM Kitchen and check out the big bites and tiny treats for yourself.
And if you dine at Disney Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel, you’ll want to look for a special drink straight out of the Quantum Realm. This limited-time beverage is available at Skyline Bar for only a short time in honor of the new film.
Meet Ant-Man and the Wasp at Shanghai Disney Resort
If you’re hoping to interact with the stars of Quantumania themselves, you can do so at Shanghai Disney Resort. Home to the China premiere of the film at the resort’s The Walt Disney Grand Theatre, this theme park is celebrating with an all-new Ant-Man and the Wasp character encounter.
Guests can head to the Marvel Universe at Shanghai Disney Resort to meet both characters in person. And for a little more excitement, you can also check out full-sized movie posters and catch the official trailer for the film when you visit.
Get the New Ooze Cauldron at Pym Test Kitchen
Stop by Pym Test Kitchen within Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure Park, and you’ll be able to get an exclusive piece of merch! The all-new Ooze Cauldron, which is inspired by one of the hilarious and pivotal scenes in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, is available to order while supplies last.
You can order the Ooze Cauldron with your drink of choice. Like most popular sippers, it may be in high demand – check the Disneyland app to see if it’s available for mobile order at Pym Kitchen during your visit!
Team Up with Ant-Man and the Wasp at Hong Kong Disneyland
Ant-Man and Wasp actually star in their very own attraction – but you’ll have to head to Hong Kong Disneyland to experience it! At this theme park, you can suit up and fight alongside both superheroes in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Nano Battle!
As the only attraction in the world centered around these two Marvel characters, the dark ride is highly interactive and full of high-tech fun. Guests embark on a high-energy adventure that starts when they shrink to the size of an ant. You’ll join S.H.I.E.L.D. to battle Hydra, with the help of Ant-Man and the Wasp, of course.
Train with Ant-Man and the Wasp Aboard the Disney Wish and Disney Dream
Marvel characters take center stage on the Disney Wish, where Guests can dine at Worlds of Marvel restaurant and play an interactive role in a special Avengers mission that unfolds during the meal. This restaurant highlights Ant-Man and the Wasp in multiple ways, but it’s particularly fun to see the latest Pym Tech in action – the Quantum Core – as Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne host a technology showcase. This dining experience is even more exciting once you’ve seen the Quantumania!
And if you’re sailing aboard the Disney Wish, you can also join a hands-on training session with Ant-Man and the Wasp. Or, you can if you’re between the ages of three and 12 years old, that is! These two heroes will teach younger Guests how to create and test their own Pym Particles, the technology that allows the two Marvel characters to shrink and grow as needed.
Aboard the Disney Dream, Guests will also have the opportunity to engage in some fun with Ant-Man and the Wasp. During Marvel Day at Sea, you can meet Marvel superheroes and villains, and Ant-Man and the Wasp both make an appearance during the special Heroes Unite show at the close of the day!
Before you try any of these exciting experiences, don’t forget to see Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania for yourself! You can check out our review of the film here.
