Guardians of the Galaxy construction - May 2019

These photos taken last week give a birds-eye view of the Guardians of the Galaxy construction at Epcot.

The majority of the building is now fully enclosed, and sections of coaster track ready for installation can be seen at the far right of the image below.

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.

It wouldn't be the first time that something that looked real, has no functionality at all.

It seems to be the plan that there will indeed be solar panels. The current roofing configuration seems unsuitable for anything else.

They don't have any CM's in-front of Ratatouille, so I wouldn't be surprised see the walls come down and just have a sign saying Coming "Soon."

PHOTOS - Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind construction at EPCOT Hopefully, when they get that front exterior completed, they'll be able to take down the construction wall so this part of the park doesn't have that up for the next 10+ months. Then again, if they take down the wall, they'll need to maintain landscaping and probably employ a castmember or two to stand at the front and explain to people that it's not open so who knows? It's not like the days of extended Test Track delays where they could actually use the new show building look as a weenie to get people to come up and interact with the sponsor by filling out a short survey in the guise of a car giveaway to justify all that. Under current circumstances, it's hard to imagine them being willing to throw their own cast dollars at this right now.

So is it confirmed that the photovoltaic cells will not be included?

Is Guardians the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will have loops? :confused:

Disney did something very Machiavellian and quite genius. When you’re fresh meat, you kill and throw them something fresher! By putting out two hideous monstrosities in the WSL, they have made GotG showbuilding look like small peanuts!

The main skill is being able to sing sweetly such that the animals will sweep and clean the place up. Saves tons on labor cost.

So.... it's open then? What sort of qualifications are you looking for?

Greystone started calling himself that at the M&Gs, so, I had to kick him out of the park.
