After this week’s exciting announcement that new Marvel-themed lands, attractions and characters will be coming to Disney Parks world-wide in the next few years (specifically Disney California Adventure, Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland), I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to take a look at the past, present and potential future of Marvel Meet & Greets at Disney locations.
Normally, I’d be focused on just the U.S. parks, but since there’s a wonderful initiative aboard the Disney Cruise Line with various shows such as “Heroes Unite”, plus Meet & Greets and “Marvel Day at Sea” events, I’m going to touch on some of those options as well. And where I’m aware of international park Meets, I’ll mention those, too.
Note: the focus of this feature will be Marvel Cinematic Universe character Meet & Greets, rather than shows, but if characters are in shows that I’m aware of, I’ll try to mention that, too. However, I’m not including runDisney marathon appearances where various characters have been spotted in the past.
As always, everything is subject to change at the whim of Disney at any time, so the information is only current through the time of writing this article. And the various park apps are generally the most up-to-date way of finding a character appearance you’re seeking on any given day, though you can always ask a Cast Member, too!
Rather than breaking this down by location, however, I’ve decided to separate this by character instead. So I’m going to note the character and where he or she has appeared in the past or is currently appearing at this time or has been announced as appearing soon.
