Guardians of the Galaxy construction - November 2018

Walt Disney World's upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy coaster dominates the Epcot horizon, and it looks like we now have a clearer picture of just how Imagineering plans to enclose the building.

A series of exterior panels are now in place, beginning with dark green as the lowest level, moving to a lighter shade going upwards, and then moving to the tried-and-tested go-away blue for the upper levels. This strategy has been used numerous times before, including the Soarin' ride show building across the World Showcase Lagoon.

The above is a view of the building that will enclose the coaster tracker and below is a good view of the tunnel that will link the former Universe of Energy building (which will become queue and land area), to the actual coaster ride building.

Little has changed at the front of the building, although all of the solar panels have now been removed.

When it opens in a rumored Spring 2021, the ride will feature a new coaster ride system and promises to be one of the longest enclosed coasters in the world.
