Guardians of the Galaxy construction - March 4 2021
Posted: Monday March 8, 2021 11:30am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Today we have a quick look at the latest construction progress on the queue and pre-show building at Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind in EPCOT. 

Work is continuing at a rather leisurely pace on the roof of the building, with more waterproofing and plywood panels being installed along the front edge.

It still remains unclear if the roof will receive solar panels like the former Universe of Energy pavilion, or if the angled panels will be covered in a regular cladding material.

Here is a look at concept art of the finished look.

I really hope Disney stops announcing projects so long before construction starts. Hopefully, they're doing that now, otherwise, we won't get anything after Guardians until after Epic Universe opens. I don't expect anything to be imminent given the current situation, but D23 got pushed back to September 2022, so if they follow their usual 4-year timeline, it would be 2026. Granted, Destination D got delayed until this year, but I honestly don't expect an exciting announcement, hope I'm wrong though!

I personally think the opposite. Kinda like what Universal is doing. They keep quiet the majority of the time and let people speculate. When it's near complete that's the time they advertise nonstop.

No faith in Walt Disney World's first (and most likely only) Marvel attraction? Yeah, okay... this thing is going to be a massive hit.

If anything they should be leaking details themselves. There is generally no faith in this attraction due to the ridiculousness of both its placement and its ugly exterior. The only seemingly redeemable aspect of it is the tech. Personally speaking, I guess.

Loose lips sink ships and careers. Disney has apparently been quite aggressive about Sausalito.

I think what's interesting is how so little information has leaked about the details of this ride.

The only thing that makes me interested in this is that it's a long ride for a launch coaster and maybe the spins. If it tops 2 minutes I'm okay with it.

Update: The big blue box is still there and still ugly.

Have to agree with this, it would be nice to get an update on this. Excited for this addition, maybe their isn’t much to see? With how many years this has been under construction their has to be something.

That's disappointing. I figured we would be seeing some set props going in and some more pictures of inside the ride building.

It's opening next year, filming is happening along with Guardians 3, that's about it.
