Today, our friends at the Disney Parks Blog unveiled the Wakanda-inspired delicacies, props, and heroes coming to Disneyland Resort for a limited time in celebration of Marvel Studios’ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Beginning Friday, November 11, 2022—the day the highly anticipated sequel opens exclusively in theaters—and continuing through Sunday, January 8, 2023, guests can discover the magic of Wakanda at Avengers Campus and beyond at Disney California Adventure, plus pose with a special art installation at the Downtown Disney District.
As previously revealed, M’Baku, one of Wakanda’s greatest warriors and chieftain of the Jabari Clan, will make his way to Avengers Campus. M’Baku will invite recruits to join in “The Way of the Jabari,” an all-new experience that will share some of the culture of the Jabari Clan through chants and percussion.
Adjacent to the campus, The Black Panther Celebration Garden will honor the legacy of the Black Panther in Wakandan lore. The space invites guests to relax and reflect on the legendary protectors of the Kingdom of Wakanda.
Super Hero recruits can fuel up at the Flavors of Wakanda marketplace located in the Hollywood Backlot, where they can enjoy flavorful, spiced, traditional African dishes and experience the vibrant culture of Wakanda through its food. Wakanda-inspired delicacies include Peri-Peri Chicken with yellow Jollof rice; Butterfly Pea Tea Lemonade, the Dawa beverage consisting of vodka, lemonade, honey, ginger beer, and butterfly pea tea; and Maafe, a ground peanut stew with sweet potatoes, tomatoes, black-eyed peas, and spices, served with naan.
Inside Avengers Campus, feast on the Wakandan Roasted Pork Wrap, featuring spiced pork with black garlic sauce and chermoula at Shawarma Palace and Shawarma Palace Too.
Enjoy your beverage in style with Shuri’s gauntlet, one of several drinking vessels available at the Flavors of Wakanda marketplace, Shawarma Palace, Shawarma Palace Too, and select vending carts near Avengers Campus.
Guests can discover props and costumes from the film and purchase Black Panther-themed gear at the Super Store Featuring Avengers Campus located in Hollywood Land.
In the Downtown Disney District, outside the building adjacent to Star Wars Trading Post, pose by a limited-time mural celebrating Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The colorful illustration will be created by artist Nikkolas Smith, who previously created the art installation “King Chad.”
In Marvel Studios’ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, directed by Ryan Coogler, Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), M’Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira), and the Dora Milaje (including Florence Kasumba) fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers in the wake of King T’Challa’s death. As the Wakandans strive to embrace their next chapter, the heroes must band together with the help of War Dog Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) and forge a new path for the kingdom of Wakanda.
