The city of Anaheim gave Disney the green light for permit filings to start construction for building permits for projects including; a bathroom overhaul, a retail outlet, a microbrewery, character meet-and-greet area, and improvements to behind-the-scenes-buildings. The value costs for the permits for the work are more than $14 million dollars.

Approved on Wednesday, for one of the permits allows Disney for a whopping 2,071-square-foot merchandise outlet with three canopies attached.

Disney declined to comment on the permits for the certain kind of attractions that will be included in the expansion. Spider-Man is the only confirmed attraction for Disney California Adventure for an interactive ride to battle the forces of evil, with everyone’s friendly neighboorhood super hero.

More details about the expansion are expected to be announced at this year’s D23 Fan Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center on August 23rd-25th, 2019. The Marvel take over will replace A Bug’s Land based off the Pixar animation film, “A Bug’s Life” and closed last year in September. Construction is happening with temporary walls, with the words saying “Stark Industries” based off the fictional character of Tony Stark as Iron Man.

The expansion is to anchor Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout! that opened up in 2017 that replaced The Twilight Zone theme. Visitors towards the park have been witnessing scaffolding and a metal structure begin to form behind the temporary wall.

Disney hasn’t officially announced a title name for the expansion, due towards the licensing deals that were signed before Disney bought out Marvel. The term “Marvel” cannot be used east of Mississippi River because of the contract with Marvel and Universal and applies for Orlando, Florida at the Walt Disney World Resort.
