thor disneyland marvel Thor to be first Marvel meet and greet character at Disneyland

An Avenger will soon be heading to Disneyland. In anticipation of the release of “Thor: The Dark World,” the California theme park will introduce Thor as a new meet-and-greet character.

The Thor experience will give fans a chance to meet the character and also visit Asgard, though it’s unclear where exactly the Asgard set up will be in the Disneyland theme parks and to what extent it will recreate the fictional world. According to the Disney Parks Blog, guests “will be able to visit Asgard this fall and come face-to-face with the Mighty Avenger, Thor.”

Thus far, the most immersive Marvel experience at a Disney theme park was Tony Stark’s Hall of Armor at Disneyland, which tied into “Iron Man 3.” Meanwhile, D23 Expo guests were lucky enough to have a meet-and-greet with Captain America, who will soon appear in the Marvel Avengers Academy cruise ship experience.

“Thor: The Dark World” is due in theaters on Nov. 8.
