    Marvel walk-around characters coming to Disneyland for Halloween?

    Here Comes Spider-Man (Mouse Tales' David Koenig) by David Koenig
    factions within Entertainment are arguing that the perfect time is approaching to introduce walk-around Marvel superheroes at Disneyland
    Purely rumour at this point, but with Marvel merchandise hitting Disney store shelves, is it only a matter of time?

    God I hope not. I understand they now own this, but it simply does not fit anywhere in the resort. It's just too contrasting and large a universe to ever fit in with Disney films. Maybe in the Hollywood section and only for Halloween, but even then...yuck!

    It's really just a matter of time.



    Why the heck do they think it's okay to have Marvel characters in the parks, but there isn't a smidge of Kingdom Hearts to be found anywhere? Makes no sense, no sense a'tall.

    Because Kingdom Hearts isn't owned by Disney. It's owned by Square Enex. Disney just sold them the rights for the characters.

    Re: Marvel walk-around characters coming to Disneyland for Halloween?

    But doesn't Universal own all the theme park rights to Marvel?

    Can someone enlighten me on the contract?

    Thanks haha!

    I'm all for the Characters walking around the park.
    Even so they don't fit thematically at all. I mean for people who say "they don't fit anywhere around the park." Just look at the rest of the resort. At DCA you shrink to the size of a Toy in a '20s style Boardwalk,have a movie based in the location of Alaska used as play area, and Travel in a world filled with Monsters in Hollywood.

    I had heard that, but I was never clear on the details. It would seem wise for Disney to have kept a piece of that pie...

    At the time of the purchase, I recall an article stating that "nothing would change" in regards to the theme parks. Basically, the claim was that Disney was only interested in the income from the franchise, and they were going to continue to let Universal have exclusive rights to the characters in the parks.

    Re: Marvel walk-around characters coming to Disneyland for Halloween?

    The park has always been uncomfortable with showcasing walk-around characters who aren’t readily identifiable with a park attraction or the Disney studio.
    The one exception was Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, since its theme incorporated the entire spectrum of movies and television. The Power Rangers, for instance, have never gotten a gig at Disneyland,
    He really didn't think this through, thoroughly. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were in the Magic Kingdom for at least one of their parades.

    Marsupilami was not owned by Disney, but it was a character that did appear in Disneyland.

    Indy had a show at DL a year or two ago, and even in the streets of AL.

    Star Wars characters have a show in the TL terracce where they interact with kids

    And of course Disney didn't own Pixar until 2005, but they made appearances in DL and DCA.

    Then there are the Muppets, also not owned by Disney until 2005, and they appeared in DCA on opening day.

    those are just the ones I thought of off the top of my head.

    ...says Darth Maul on a Disney site... I kid, I kid! I love Marvel characters, but I agree with you.

    Maybe...maybe in the Disney Studios in FLA...maybe.
