Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind

We went inside the Cosmic Rewind attraction — check out what we saw here


At the 2017 D23 Expo, Disney announced a Guardians of the Galaxy-inspired attraction would be coming to EPCOT’s Future World in an area to rethemed as World Discovery. This is in alignment with the original vision of EPCOT’s Future World as a place to experience the excitement and adventure offered by space travel.

The new E-ticket attraction is based on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy film series, and brings Marvel into the Disney World parks for the first time. The attraction’s queue is located in the previous home to Universe of Energy (and features MANY references to the previous occupant!).

The ride features groundbreaking ride vehicles and technology. The coaster is being pitched as a storytelling coaster. Riders face the “story” of the ride in vehicles that move from the left to the right rather than racing by it, as they usually do in conventional coasters sitting in fixed vehicles facing straight ahead.

The story brings rides to the Wonders of Xandar pavilion, where they’ll see the Galaxarium, complete with “a planetarium-type presentation”.

During this presentation, Xandarians will show guests “their world, their people, and their advanced technologies.”
