Posted: Thursday May 26, 2022 10:06am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Just ahead of tomorrow's opening of EPCOT's Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind, seating has been added to the breezeway between World Celebration and World Discovery.

The 7 benches are positioned in the space between Connections Cafe and Creations Shop.

The benches in the center are double-sided, with single-sided benches positioned against the walls.

New colored umbrellas have also been installed near to Mission: SPACE and Test Track.

Any idea what they're doing there? Backstage stuff or just expanded pathways, planters and maybe benches?

Out of curiosity, has there been any progress to the left of guest relations? Last time I saw a photo of that area, it was still fenced off and the original planter looked like it had been beaten to heck and back.

I'm wondering if that means they're going to open the Odyssey as a 40th exhibit (like many have theorized) with that model still sitting in there. Would be really funny to see the festival table come back from the dead again after the real one officially died.

I've always wanted them to put Mickey's ears and face on Spaceship Earth to make a a nice sized plushie out of it. 😂
