PHOTOS: The Reason You Might NOT Mind Waiting in Line for EPCOT’s Guardians of the Galaxy Ride

Something cosmic is coming to EPCOT!

Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind

The park is going through a huge transformation right now, and one of the new experiences coming EPCOT is Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, an all new coaster inspired  by Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy films! We’ve seen a couple looks inside the ride, a peek at the attraction’s queue, and even a glimpse of the gift shop for the ride. But today we got one of the biggest inside looks yet, directly from D23 (the official Disney fan club)!

D23 recently shared a first look at what part of the queue for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is going to look like!

The Galaxarium will be a room in the queue where guests will learn more about the Wonders of Xandar pavilion that the ride is housed in.

The Galaxarium is a planetarium-inspired exhibit that will show guests the connections between Xandar and Terra (Earth.)

The full viewable experience inside the Galaxarium will actually be OVER 30 minutes long, so guests will have something new to look at for quite some time while in line!

D23 also shared some images of light fixtures that appear to be in this portion of the queue. Very cool!

We also got to see what the back of the Star Blaster ship looks like in all its glory! There will be plenty of details here for fans to stare at!

Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley has since shared more details about the Guardians queue via Instagram. According to Riddley, the “over 30-minute show” that goes on in the Galaxarium “begins to touch on both planets and how the Xandarian galaxy, the Andromeda Galaxy, is similar to our own, showcasing the real science behind the formation of galaxies and solar systems.”

Riddley noted that the space is dynamic and is “organized around a radial grid.” Guests will rise an entire level through this radial grid with “sinuous ramping.” That’ll give everyone the chance to take in the details on the dome above from different viewpoints.

According to Riddley, the “lighting and architectural elements echo the color and aesthetic of Xandar and give a great mood to our first act of this attraction.”

And he even said that the ride will have nods to EPCOT history that EPCOT fans should enjoy!
