Disneyland's Avengers Campus will have 3 places to eat, from an 'Ant-Man'-themed restaurant to a 'Guardians of the Galaxy' food cart
Here is a look into the Pym Test kitchen on the left. One of the meals you can order, the Not So Little Chicken Sandwich, is a large piece of chicken on a tiny bun.
A Marvel-themed land is coming to Disneyland in Anaheim, California on June 4, 2021.
In March 2020, insiders were given a little insight into the Avengers Campus as part of a press preview.
There are three main restaurants: The Pym Test Kitchen, Shawarma Palace and Terran Treats.
You can find more stories on the Insider homepage.
Terran Treats are a cart inspired by the park's Guardians of the Galaxy ride that sells two different dessert treats.

If you're familiar with California Adventure, Terran Treats are right next to Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: Breakout Attraction and have a humorous backstory linked to the Avengers campus.
Terran Treats revolves around the character "Guardians of the Galaxy" Taneleer Tivan, the collector. As his name suggests, he likes to collect rare and unusual things. A few of them can be seen on the "GotG" California Adventure ride, but he's always keen to add to that collection. This is where park guests come into play.
Terran is another word for people. So Tivan essentially operates a "human goodies" cart in an attempt to add park patrons to its growing collection within the Guardian attraction.
"[Tivan] has his Terran Treats cart that takes us to his fortress," said Jillian Pagan, director of the Avengers Campus story line how the cart is linked to the Guardians attraction.
The cart's dining options are an extension of Tivan's character theme.
“You have this crazy, strange looking food that you think tastes like one thing and tastes like something completely different,” Pagan said.
One of the elements is the sweet spiral ration, which is essentially a churro. Six different colors were shown to press - red, blue, purple, orange, yellow and red. If they remind you of the Infinity Power Stones from the Marvel movies, that's the idea. Each color gives a different churro taste.
The cart also has a crispy cream puff called the Cosmic Cream Orb.
The inside of the wind pouch is a rich purple. Unfortunately, Insider didn't try this treat due to a dietary restriction. But it looked good.
The cream puff has a whipped raspberry cheesecake mousse and is supposed to look like the purple power infinity stone that can be seen in "Guardians of the Galaxy".
Shawarma Palace brings to life a moment from the end of 2012 "The Avengers".

"At the end of the first 'Avengers', the battle-weary Avengers went to the local kebab and tried," said Pagan.
"In our fiction, they loved this doner kebab so much that it became a tradition for them," continued the heathen. "When they were designing their Avengers campus, of course they invited their friends from New York to open a second car here so that they and their colleagues could get kebab anytime."
The cart has two kebab options. The first is a chicken and doner kebab wrap called New York's Tastiest. The second, Impossible Victory Falafel, is a plant-based option made with Impossible falafels and a wrap of crusted cauliflower.
More information about the Shawarma Palace shopping cart can be found here.
The main food location on the Avengers campus will be the Pym Test Kitchen.

"Superheroes don't usually open restaurants, but they would use their technology to help the world," said Pagan of the story behind the Ant-Man and the Wasp-inspired restaurant.
"Throughout our history, they are using their shrinking and growing technology to create new innovations in food science," added Pagan.
The Pym Test Kitchen plays with combinations of large and small dishes, from chicken sandwiches to pasta dishes with large and small meatballs.

"Of course you can feed a lot more people if you run a full-size pretzel through this quantum tunnel machine, hit it with some pym particles, and let it grow to a huge size," Pagan said. "Our food and beverage team did a great job expanding storytelling to include food, so you can buy a giant pretzel."
Every food in the test kitchen is marked as a test number. One of the most important products that you can order is the "Not So Little Chicken Sandwich".
I couldn't try this item due to dietary restrictions, but it looked really good. This was named Experiment No. EE90. David Nguyen / Disneyland Resort
It comes with an oversized piece of fried chicken breast on a normal sized bun. Some members of the press didn't seem too happy about this, as it was getting harder to pick up the sandwich. The chicken was easy to chop up with a fork and knife, but some didn't seem to see the humor in the sandwich to the "Ant-Man" stories.
The sandwich is topped with teriyaki and red chilli sauces, pickled coleslaw and crispy potato dumplings. A children's version is called the Subatomic Chicken Sandwich (Experiment No. SE91).
Instead of the chicken sandwich, I was allowed to try the version of the Caesar salad in the test kitchen with a colossal crouton (experiment no. EE92). It felt like a stretch to call it a Caesar Salad, however.
I wasn't very impressed with it and definitely wouldn't pay Disney prices for a huge slice of romaine lettuce topped with Caesar dressing, kalamata olives, pickled onions, and parmesan chips. That wouldn't fill me up. Disneyland Resorts did not provide a photo of this menu item.
I got to try the Impossible Spoonful, which came with large and small noodles and a small and large meatball and plant-based cheese.
Disneyland has a partnership with Impossible Foods. This dish was named Experiment No. EE45. David Nguyen / Disneyland Resort
I enjoyed this dish because of the playful aspect of how it looked when served. Regular size rigatoni were mixed with smaller ditalini pasta. The meatballs are made from impossible meat.
There is also a children's version of this meal called Mini Pasta & Meat Balls (Experiment No. SE47).
For the press event, a tiny fork came with my huge meatball, which I personally got a kick out of. We were told that tiny cutlery will not be available in the test kitchen. When I heard this, I stowed my tiny fork to take home as a souvenir.
One of the other main dishes is a family size pym-ini. It can also be ordered in individual servings called teeny pym-ini.

The pym-ini sandwich is served on toasted ciabatta with salami, rosemary ham, provolone, sun-dried tomato mayonnaise, rocket and marinara dip.
The PB³ Superb Sandwich is an adult peanut butter jelly sandwich with bacon.
This was named Experiment No. EE746. David Nguyen / Disneyland Resort
It comes with peanut butter, banana, smoked bacon, and strawberry jelly. It is served with a dash of banana smoothie and crispy potatoes.
That blue swirl on the bread? This is supposed to resemble blue PYM particles that hit the bread and made it slightly larger.
Here are the rest of the menu items that guests can choose from.
The press received the huge pretzels to try. As expected, it tasted like a regular pretzel you'd get at Disneyland. David Nguyen / Disneyland Resort
Experiment no. IP42: quantum pretzel
396 grams of Bavarian style with mustard and beer cheese dip
Experiment No. SE40: PB & J Flavor Lab (children's meal)
Smooth peanut butter, strawberry jelly, and PYM particle bread
Experiment No. SC1: Chocolate Bar
It's a giant chocolate bar filled with caramel, nougat, peanuts, and chocolate brownie. It's covered in dark chocolate.
Guests can purchase Pingo Doce soda, a nod to Bruce Banner's time in Rio de Janeiro when he worked at the soda company's bottling plant.

"As you move around the room, we bring that fun, humor, and whimsy into the room itself," said Pagan.
In the kitchen, you can also see giant beverage cans hanging on the ceiling, as well as giant ketchup and mustard bottles. Pingo Dolce Soda (top right) and Proton PB & J Punch (top left) are both soft drinks.
The Proton and PB & J Punch consists of Odwalla lemonade with strawberry and peanut butter flavors. It's topped with homemade peanut butter whipped cream and topped with tiny pretzel bites coated with peanut butter.
We tried and enjoyed both drinks. The Pingo Dolce reminded us of a Mountain Dew / Sprite drink (it's a Coca-Cola product). With Proton and PB&J, the peanut butter taste wasn't overwhelming at all. It tasted like a refreshing lemonade. We tried the drink without whipped cream.
If you really feel like it, the test kitchen sells glowing Pym particle disks and particle capsules so adults and children can pour their drinks to light them up.
For the big Marvel fans, Disneyland will also sell a large novelty mug that resembles an enlarged Pingo Doce soda can on the Avengers campus.
If you are an adult, be sure to check out the Pym Tasting Lab, which has a variety of alcoholic beverage options.
You can see the concept art for the bar area to the right of the image above. Everything in the tasting lab is supposed to be Scott Lang's contribution to the Avengers campus.
"The Pym Test Kitchen also has our Pym Tasting Lab, which is our outdoor seating area," said Pagan of the area marked by an oversized beer can. "We don't just want to experiment with food, we also have to make sure, in the name of science, that Pym particles can have an effect on beer [and] cocktails."
Eight different beers will be on tap, including a local beer, a cloudy IPA, a blood orange yeast wheat beer, a wheat beer, and an amber lager. Wine will also be available, including a Cabernet and a Chardonnay.
Fans of Doctor Strange and Thor's encounter in "Thor: Ragnarok" will get a kick from beers poured from a reverse-draft, bottom-up glass - Strange topped up Thor's tall glass with beer Path. Four of the eight beers can be ordered this way.
"We're excited to add a reverse tap system," said Michele Gendreau, Director of Food and Beverage Experience Integration for Disneyland Resort. "This magic can be seen by our guests at the counter when they come to the Pym Tasting Lab."
A pint-sized beer flight is offered and comes on a ruler available for collectors to take away. The four beers are delivered in mini beer mugs on an oversized ruler.
I got to try one of the beer cocktails called The Regulator.

The drink consists of Patron silver tequila, lime juice, habanero and mango syrup, Golden Road Mango Cart Wheat Ale and is garnished with popping mango-flavored pearls.
If you're a fan of tequila and mango, you will likely like this.
There are four cocktails to choose from, including the Molecular Meltdown, which has been described as an adult root beer float.

Each drink is served in a mug from Pym Technologies shown above. Here are the drinks you see above, from left to right:
X-Periment has the same ingredients as the regulator without beer.
It consists of Patron Silver tequila, lime juice, habanero and mango syrup. It's garnished with popping mango-flavored pearls.
Molecular Meltdown is a root beer for adults.
A Garage Brewing Marshmallow Milk Stout is combined with vanilla ice cream and topped with mini marshmallows.
Honey Buzz comes with an edible straw.
This drink consists of Plymouth Gin, Lemon Juice, Honey Premium Syrup, Elysian Space Dust, IPA and an edible honey straw.
Particle Fizz is made with hard seltzer.
This is made with Endless Summer Hard Seltzer and comes with cherry flavored pearls. A large number of seasonal hardeltzers will be available in the test laboratory.
In addition to the drinks, a snack mix called Snack Molecules will be available in the test lab.

The dish consists of popped sorghum with mini pretzels and honey-roasted peanuts.
