Located in Hollywood Land  Disney California Adventure Park  

Sharing my experience at Summer of Heroes Disney California Adventure!

Summer of Heroes

If you are visiting the parks between May 27th and September 10th 2017 you are in for such a treat at Disney California Adventure.  There is so much going on so let’s get to it!

I made a quick video that shows my time at Disney California Adventure for Summer of Heroes, hope you enjoy!!

Summer of Heroes

You’ll notice the new Summer of Heroes sign above the entrance of Disney California Adventure.

Summer of Heroes

If you are looking to ride the new Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission – BREAKOUT ride, be sure to get your FASTPASS first thing in the morning.  They go quick!

Summer of Heroes

You can get your picture with Groot and even watch a fun street show with Star Lord, Gamora and Groot.  They even have a little dance party and call guests up with them.  Super cute.

Summer of Heroes

First of all, the ride is amazing.  Like, my new favorite ride ever.  Here’s my husband and I top left.  Can’t wait to go on again!

Summer of Heroes

One of my favorite souvenirs to bring home to the kids is this adorable Groot Sipper.  Find them available at Award Wieners, Studio Catering Co., Smokejumpers Grill and “a bug’s land” cart.

Summer of Heroes

In Hollywood Land, before you get to Monster’s Inc, you can find the Summer of Heroes Showcase at Sunset Showcase Theater.  It’s a 10 minute movie experience featuring clips from your favorite Marvel movies.  We really enjoyed it, plus it’s a perfect place to beat the heat for a few minutes and cool off.

The Food!

Summer of Heroes

Award Wieners

This is the Angry Little Pudding Cup from Award Wieners in Hollywood Land. It’s layers of chocolate pudding, chocolate sandwich cookies, whipped cream and topped with funnel cake fries.  Be sure to eat the funnel cake fries first while they’re still warm.

Knowhere Eats

Over at Knowhere Eats also in Hollywood Land, you can get these Most Dangerous Tacos in the Galaxy– Barbacoa beef tacos with green onion slaw, purple cabbage, pickled onions, habanero salsa and green tortillas.  We really enjoyed sharing these.

Summer of Heroes

Also available at Knowhere Eats are these Obviously Nachos– Fried blue corn tortillas with red pepper cheese sauce, mojo-marinated chicken, chipotle crèma and green onions.  These were fantastic!

Summer of Heroes

Studio Catering Co.

In the same area at Nowhere Eats, you can find the little red food truck, Studio Catering Co. that sells this Milano drink– Fanta® orange freeze with blue cream.  It is sweet, sweet, sweet so I recommend sharing this one 🙂

Summer of Heroes

Cosmic Canteen

At Cosmic Canteen, you can purchase this adorable Jalapeño Cheese Groot Sourdough! Not only is it adorable, but it was really good.  I took a couple home to enjoy later.

Summer of Heroes

Also from Cosmic Canteen is this Watermelon Lemonade, non-alcoholic.  We loved it.  Super refreshing.

Summer of Heroes


Schmoozies has an awesome menu right now!  This is the Friendly Neighborhood Macaron – A vanilla ice cream-filled macaron.  It was fantastic!

Summer of Heroes

Also at Schmoozies is the Local Favorite – A maple-bacon filled doughnut with maple cream.  LOVED this one too.

Summer of Heroes

This is the Gamma-Sized Doughnut also from Schmoozies – Filled with blackberry and black currant.  It’s huge so be sure to share this one, like with 4 people, lol!

Summer of Heroes

Here’s the Spider Bite also from Schmoozies – A cinnamon-spiced doughnut.  Another favorite from my weekend.

Summer of Heroes


Right across from Monster’s Inc in Hollywood Land is Bifrosties where you can get a number of different Shaved Ice treats.  This is the Spinal Fluid – Banana, mango coulis and chili-lime spice and Spider Venom – Blue raspberry and cherry with condensed milk.  Both great.

Summer of Heroes


Over at Clarabelle’s for a limited time this Summer you can order this Mangonada.  It’s got two scoops of Mango Sorbet layered with Chamoy Sauce, fresh Mango chunks, Tajin Seasoning and Lime Juice.  LOVED this one.

Cars Land

Summer of Heroes

Lots of fun going on in Cars Land this summer like welcoming Cruz Ramierez to Cozy Cone Motel for photos!

Love the new Spider Man Gourmet Apples at the Park bakeries.

Watermelon flavored Cotton Candy is also new for Summer!  Find it at various carts throughout the park.
