Children Unleash Their Inner Super Hero, Become Iron Man and Meet Captain America Aboard the Disney Magic

Filed in: Characters, Children

CELEBRATION, Fla. – Young Disney cruisers are in for a surprise of heroic proportions at Marvel Super Hero Academy onboard the Disney Magic, where the Marvel universe comes to life. Here, young guests can train to develop the brave and adventurous heroes inside themselves.

On the Disney Magic, Marvel Super Hero Academy offers extraordinary adventures in which each young guest plays an integral role. With the mentorship of some of Marvel’s greatest Super Heroes, young trainees learn the value of teamwork, bravery and problem solving through hands-on play and programs.

Throughout the academy, displays featuring some of the equipment that help earth’s mightiest heroes—Iron Man’s high-tech suit of armor, Captain America’s shield and Thor’s hammer—inspire “recruits” throughout their academy missions.

Become Iron Man

Inside Marvel Super Hero Academy, young hero hopefuls get to virtually wear one of Iron Man’s suits during a simulated training experience on a video screen display. With a little help from J.A.R.V.I.S. (Just A Rather Very Intelligent System), the simulation gives recruits the opportunity to test out the suit’s repulsor system and flight mode—just like Iron Man.

Trainees begin by virtually suiting up piece-by-piece in the armor and testing their agility in the suit. Then, recruits practice accuracy with the repulsor system by blasting targets. The training simulation concludes with a fast-paced flight test to get kids used to jetting around in the suit—a skill that they may find handy in the future. Flashing lights and sound effects complete this fully interactive experience, immersing young heroes in the experience.

Avengers Academy

When the kids enter Marvel Super Hero Academy, they are briefed by Director Nick Fury on the constant presence of fearsome villains—and the need to train new recruits to keep the world safe from evil. The kids learn that Hydra continues to be a nefarious force that the Marvel Super Heroes continue to battle all over the world.

After Nick Fury signs off, kids get to work creating their own personas and practicing their powers and abilities.

Recruits are well on their way to active duty hero work, when their training is interrupted by a surprise appearance by Captain America. Checking in on the training, Captain America teaches the group the “Avengers Assemble” call sign so they can truly step into the role of a Marvel Super Hero.

The following day, recruits report for more training of their super-skills, when they learn Super Villain Red Skull has planned an elaborate diabolical plot to turn a “certain sea vessel” into a deadly weapon. With the Marvel Super Heroes on assignment on the other side of the globe, it’s up to the newest recruits to formulate a plan to save the planet.

Recruits realize the task may be harder than they thought when things take a turn for the worse—they soon find that their own Youth Activities counselors have been put under an evil spell that the kids must break. With time running out quickly, kids use their skills and creative reasoning to work together to find a solution. In heroic fashion, they ultimately thwart Red Skull’s evil plans, save the Marvel Super Heroes and prevent the Disney Magic from takeover.
