Stan Lee Plaque unveiled at Disneyland California
Honouring his 100 year legeacy
Stan Lee, the man behind our favourite superheroes, has been honoured with a special plaque at Disneyland California.
Unveiled on Feb 28, the plaque is located within the newly opened Avengers Campus section of the park. Here’s what it says:
“We dedicate Avengers Campus to the incomparable Stan Lee. That person who helps others simply because it should or must be done, and because it is the right thing to do, is indeed without a doubt a real superhero. Thank you, Stan, for inspiring the hero within each of us. You have made us all True Believers.”

Stan Lee is a household name nowadays and we really don’t need to explain who he is. However, it is staggering just how many Marvel characters he was involved with creating (or just outright imagined himself). Without him, we wouldn’t have Iron Man, Spider-Man, Hulk, Black Widow, Doctor Strange, Thor, Black Panther, Daredevil, Hawkeye, Scarlett Witch, and not to mention the countless fan-favourite villains that go along with them like Loki, Green Goblin, and Dr. Doom.
Basically, we have the last decade or so of superhero movie magic to thank him for.
Avengers Campus is the newest addition to Disneyland California and might just be the best reason to visit the park now. The newly converted Tower of Tower is now Mission Breakout, a Guardians of the Galaxy ride that is an absolute blast along with a (surprisingly underwhelming) new Spider-man ride. However, the real reason to visit is for the atmosphere and live shows. Standing beneath the walls of the Avengers complex under the wings of a quinjet while The Dora Milaje (Warriors from Wakanda) conducts an interactive training exercise is truly something special.

With Avengers Campus being such an awesome tribute to all things Marvel, the new addition of a Stan Lee Plaque is a fantastic touch that we’re sure has already become a must-visit selfie staple of the park.
