On Friday I was able to get a sneak preview of a new exhibit at Innoventions in Disneyland’s Tomorrowland.
Ever since it was announced that Disney was purchasing Marvel Comics, Disneyland fanatics have been fantasizing about how the superhero characters would impact the theme parks. We saw many rumors of big Marvel themed lands or even stand-alone theme parks, but one consistant rumor in the mill was a complete redesign of of Tomorrowland’s Innoventions into a Iron Man ride set within “Stark Expo”. That attraction might still be in the works (or maybe is just the creation of fan speculation) but the announcement of a Stark Industries presence inside the tech-based exhibit hall got many Disneyland fans excited.
The new exhibit promised to show off “the latest Iron Man Tech presented by Stark Industries” but is really a prop display, a fun tie in to promote the upcoming release of Iron Man 3. See my photos from the opening after the jump, along with my thoughts.

The biggest change would involve removing Muppet Vision 3D and replacing it with a roller coaster thrill ride inspired by the door chase at the end of Monsters Inc.
The second rumored upgrade would happen across the courtyard at the flagship park, Disneyland. The current idea is to take Tomorrowland and give it an update, that would be centered on a light cycle ride inspired by Tron, Tron Legacy and the possible Tron 3. Read more below. Read More »
