Disney Parks fans are getting an even closer look at the upcoming Marvel-based attractions announced at D23's Japan Expo. A series of concept art images has been released to give us a taste of what's to come. This news comes on the heels of Disney's recent 18 percent ticket price hike for their Calfornia park.
Disney's park in Hong Kong announced an Iron Man experience in 2016. The project proved to be a huge success, prompting another Avengers-themed spinoff attraction. This one will feature Ant-Man and the Wasp fighting Arnim Zola a swarm of dangerous Hydra bots. This is just one aspect of Hong Kong Disney's massive, multi-year update. An Adventureland attraction featuring Moana is expected to unveil in May and a Frozen attraction is also planned for the Hong Kong park. The park's expansion is expected to be fully completed sometime in the year 2023.
Released by Disney Parks Blog, the new concept art images reveal a futuristic setting featuring park guests in seated movers as they ride through Ant-Man and the Wasp's epic battle. The guests are depicted shooting laser guns of their own, joining in the fight. As the project is still in the concept stage, there's no guarantee the finished result will actually be interactive in this way. A walk-through portion also seems to be planned for the attraction, with Scott Lang's high-tech weapons and gear on full display. Check out the concept art images in the gallery below:

Disney's Hong Kong park isn't the only location with new attractions planned, though most do not have renovation plans of such a large, long-term scale. Disney revealed plans to integrate Marvel characters such as Captain America, Black Widow, Thor, and Iron Man in their Paris park as of June 10. Similarly, the Disneyland Paris resort will soon be transformed into Disney's Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel, a themed hotel designed to celebrate the "dynamic, inspiring" world of Marvel's most iconic heroes. The Guardians of the Galaxy will be getting its due in the form of "one of the longest enclosed roller coasters" at Epcot. Aside from that promising description, not much is known about the planned GOTG attraction.
Disney also has plans for their other hugely successful franchise, Star Wars. Epcot will soon see another themed hotel, this one evoking the iconic style of the Star Wars universe. This new hotel will connect to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, a brand new park that will be housed inside Hollywood Studios that will allow guests to interact with the world as they don their best cosplay ensemble.
