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.

Ah, right. In 2019 I believe it was to celebrate the opening of Galaxy's Edge (and shift some of the Star Wars fans to other parts of the park). But the 2018 schedule was supposed to be the norm.

It was Star Wars when I went in November 2019, not sure if it changed after. UPDATE: Hyperspace Mountain ran from May 4, 2019 to January 6, 2020. The previous year in 2018 it only ran from May 4-June 3.

Can’t wait for this ride! This isn’t happing in 2021 anymore?

TDL2 days ago

Yes. It became seasonal, to only run during the month of May (for May the 4th). Assumedly they would have done the same this year had the park been open. There's also a Halloween variant for September/October. At all other times it's normal Space Mountain.

Just wanted to throw this out regarding a potential 2022 opening date - according to Huan Phan's LinkedIn page (https://www.linkedin.com/in/huanphan/) the ride is opening in 2022. He worked on the project from August 2018 through March 2020. Of course though the 2022 date on his LinkedIn could be a typo or wrong or out of date.

Maybe. Who am I to judge?

Strange?

While I’ve heard of the ToT/Mission Breakout ride system being looked at for the E-Ticket, I’m under the impression that it wouldn’t actually be Mission Breakout

Speaking of which, did the Star Wars overlay of Space Mountain at Disneyland ever end?

Originally HK was to receive a GOTG coaster for the Autopia plot when they decided to go with Marvel instead of Star Wars for the simulators. The plan was scrapped due to budget reasons and I believe they were looking into other options like a GOTG redress for Space Mountain, which would supposedly end its Star Wars overlay by 2021. I don't know what kind of ride the Avengers E-ticket announced in the multi-year plan will be but a lot of inside sources in HK have pointed out that HKDL will be getting Mission Breakout instead of the E-ticket coming to DCA and WDSP. And apparently even that project is shelved for the moment.

HK's E-Ticket is one of two things. One of them is a coaster.

Is HKs that canceled coaster? Or something else entirely?

Paris’s is DCA’s Marvel land, with an extra restaurant and a rethemed RnRC to anchor the land. For the most part they are pretty similar. I don’t know how many times I’ll have to/ have had to say this, but last I checked, HK’s E-Ticket is different from DCA’s. If Paris ever ends up getting an E-Ticket, it will likely be DCA’s on the LMA plot.
