Guardians of the Galaxy construction - April 2018

Construction of Walt Disney World's upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy rollercoaster is well and truly underway in Epcot's Future World.

The rear of the former Universe of Energy pavilion is now an active construction site, with work taking place on that building, and on the second new building that will house the actual ride.

The former Universe of Energy building will contain the queue and pre-show areas, and as you can see from the image above, the rear wall has a large section removed that will join onto a new building that is now being built.

Behind the existing building, work is well underway on construction of the new ride building that will contain the actual coaster. Much like Rock 'n' Roller Coaster, the two buildings will be linked by a tunnel.

So far there are minimal changes at the front of Universe of Energy.

Besides construction walls, the only other point of note is the former ride exits have been removed and covered in scrims.

Disney has not yet announced an opening date for Guardians of the Galaxy at Epcot, but current estimates put the ride at a Spring 2021 opening.
