Guardians of the Galaxy construction - June 2019

Here is a latest look at the guardians of the Galaxy construction in Epcot's Future World.

The main tunnel up into the ride building is now fully enclosed and painted in "go away green and blue", and there are more pieces of track and support columns beside the building ready for installation.

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.

Both GotG and Ellen's will have at least The Big Bang in common.

Oh you know they will! I’m an EPCOT purist but also a huge Marvel fan so *insert two red buttons meme here*

Oh no doubt it’ll have some sort of retro tie back to the original ride. Then they can start selling baby groot merch along with the Figment merch.

I’m sure there will be some sort of homage to UoE. And considering Quill’s adoration of music, who knows. Could actually work.

I’m not thrilled about the attraction but I was listening to EPCOT Center soundtracks and had the exit music for OG Universe of Energy playing. Having it play while you are moving through the attraction almost like Starlord had the music playing would be a pretty cool nod to the original attraction. I doubt it would happen but a thought

You may, however, claim the title of "Present at the Animal Kingdom" any time you're in town.

Sadly it’s on the wrong side of the park though, dang it! 😉

I believe I was offended that I wasn't named President of the Animal Kingdom.

Said supposed 'insider' was called out for not knowing that the title of "President of DAK" doesn't exist. Hilarity ensued. I adopted the title as a tweak of the nose. I abandoned it when newbies actually thought I was PoDAK. That was the same time when newbies were confused by "realBobChapek.'

Since no one likes being left out, I'll give an unofficial and severely abridged explanation: -Fuzzy on the original origin but, in one of the threads someone was referencing rumors or claiming inside knowledge of something generally perceived as ridiculous (as usual). -Said poster somehow referenced the President of Animal Kingdom (or one of the other WDW parks). -An individual park's highest title is Vice President -In the ensuing chaos in the thread, several titles were claimed -Mr. Penguin ended up with a seemingly unanimous claim to the title of President of Animal Kingdom -Due to his general congeniality* and wit, Mr. Penguin's title seemed to be the only one with real staying power -Many lurkers feared cutbacks when said title was no longer showing on his posts *Your mileage may vary

There it is! I feared your title was stripped with Rohde's... Good to see they saw your value.

There will be attractions!

You called? Every insider knows who's the President of Animal Kingdom! I'm happy to announce that there will be additions to Animal Kingdom soon.
