    We are celebrating my husband's 40th birthday at California Adventure. He loves Marvel and we'd also like to have a fancy dinner on property at night. What are your recommendations? We are open to getting a park hopper if needed.

    Royal greetings, Prince Matthew!

    Thank you for bringing your question to us here at planDisney. Just as Prince Eric meticulously planned a delightful day out for Ariel to enjoy his kingdom, it's so sweet that you are already hard at work planning the perfect celebration for your One True Love.

    I remember celebrating an anniversary with my husband by dining at Carthay Circle Restaurant a few years back. This is such an elegant location at Disney's California Adventure Park and pays homage to the historic Carthay Circle Theater during the golden age of Hollywood. You are immediately transported to a world of elegance and glamour as you step inside. The exquisite decor, high ceilings, and warm lighting create a timeless atmosphere. The restaurant offers a menu of delectable cuisine and signature cocktails. 

    Another charmingly romantic option is the Wine Country Trattoria, which captures the rustic elegance of the Napa Valley. The trattoria specializes in California wine country cuisine, featuring handmade pasta, wood-fired pizzas, flavorful seafood, and savory meats. The extensive selection of California wines perfectly complements the culinary offerings. 

    Both of these options are very popular for dinner, so since your visit is within the next 120 days, now is the perfect time to secure a dining reservation for whichever location suits you best!

    You've come to the right place regarding your hunny’s interest in Marvel. A day at Avengers Headquarters promises to be action-packed. Here's what I suggest to make the most of your day:

    1. Start with WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure. Use your own web-slinging abilities to save the day from Spider-Bots gone rogue. 

    2. Explore Avengers Campus, taking in the immersive atmosphere and architecture. Don't miss Doctor Strange's magic demonstration in the Ancient Sanctum.

    3. Visit Pym Test Kitchen, known for its oversized menu items like the Quantum Pretzel. I love the unique adult beverage concoctions there too!

    4. Meet Superheroes like Captain America, Black Widow, Thor, and most recently, Mantis, who roam around Avengers Campus for photos and conversations.

    5. You will be just in time to visit the new Rogers: The Musical! I can’t wait to check this out myself.

    6. Take Flight on Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!

    7. Shop for Souvenirs: My favorite spot to peruse Marvel memorabilia is the Super Store featuring Avengers Campus, tucked away behind Hollywood Land.

    Well, Matthew, I hope these suggestions help you plan an unforgettable day at the Disney California Adventure Park. This is the perfect place to make your hunny feel like the superhero that he is! If you’d like any more tips or advice, please don’t hesitate to follow up.
    I can do this all day,
