The D23 Expo, Disney’s twice-yearly fan conference, comes to an end today in Anaheim. Baby Yoda, but not before a slew of announcements for the company’s theme parks, including this one for Disneyland.

One of the most thrilling pieces of news, though, came in the form of a modest potato ball before we even got to the rides. Downtown Disney will soon be home to the nearly famous local chain, Porto’s Bakery & Cafe. And it’s Cuban pastries and sandwiches. It will be joining a Din Tai Fung location that has already been revealed (you can check out a new concept image of that below).

When the Mandalorian makes his entrance into Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in the theme parks. He will be accompanied by Grog, also known as Baby Yoda. According to Sunday’s presentation, Grogu will coo in a small bag while the armor-clad bounty hunter welcomes guests to the themed area at Disneyland.

The Hulk will begin romping about Avengers Camp the following week. So they aren’t the only new characters making their way to the parks. The walk-around character from Avengers: Endgame will make a brief appearance at Disney California

Adventure Park in September. While wearing his black, white, and red quantum outfit.

In terms of the park’s Marvel-themed area, Disney has now provided an update on the upcoming Avengers attraction, which was previously announced in 2019. The ride will now go across the multiverse, pitting a diverse cast of characters against King Thanos. A new iteration of the Mad Titan was made specifically for the park. Characters in the concept art include Daredevil, Man-Thing, various Hulks, Thors, and Captain America.

Additionally, Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel, which is just across the street, will change into the Pixar Place Hotel, complete with a splash pad with a Finding Nemo motif.

You can see our video below of the models that made their debut earlier this week on the expo’s show floor. Disney also unveiled some further photographs of Mickey’s Toontown. And Splash Mountain renovations are going to Disneyland. The musical Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway and the park-like Goofy’s How-to-Play Yard will both be part of Toontown when it reopens in 2023. Then, in 2024, Tiana’s Bayou Adventure will have its premiere, featuring a number of the movie’s original voice performers. Anika Noni Rose as Princess Tiana, Bruno Campos as Prince Naveen, Michael Leon Wooley as Louis, and Jenifer Lewis as Mama Odie are among the cast members.
