Captain America Getting the Boot

When Innoventions—er, I mean the Tomorrowland Expo Center—opens on November 16, the second-story Super Hero HQ will be missing a super hero.
After 20 months on the job, Captain America will be on hiatus until just before the premiere of the film "Captain America: Civil War" on May 6, 2016. In his place will be the heavily-publicized debut of Spider-Man.
The benching of Captain America has cast members scratching their heads. The only thing they can come up with is budgetary concerns, since the lion’s share of the Expo’s budget is going to the Star Wars exhibits—and collectible store—on the first floor.
If fans of the First Avenger wish to see him before he goes, drop by the park by November 8.
Although Iron Man had been expected to be appearing at Disneyland by now, reportedly the owners of Hong Kong Disneyland will be opening an Iron Man flight simulator attraction (similar to Star Tours) and demanded exclusive rights to have the costumed character at their park.
The other thing you won’t see at the Expo is the building moving. Sadly, during this current rehab, much of the mechanisms that made the building rotate were removed. And if you’re curious why, check out that hot new book, "The People v. Disneyland: How Lawsuits & Lawyers Transformed the Magic" (http://www.amazon.com/People-V-Disne.../dp/1937878031).
