Disney has today announced that a “Guardians of the Galaxy”-inspired attraction will be coming to Future World, replacing the Universe of Energy.

Epcot’s brand new E-ticket attraction will be based on the rockin’ and action-packed world of “Guardians of the Galaxy.”

No further details were announced, beyond an opening ahead of 2021, in time for the 50th anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort.

The Universe of Energy will have its last day of operation on August 13 2017.

So what’s the current budget for this thing? I remember hearing something about it being insanely over budget (500 million?). Do we know what the original budget was?

The same blue vapor barrier is being installed on the front facing V shaped plywood today.

No, a second Cosmic Rewind track is being built and it will go into the big golf ball.

I'm hoping they'll tear down Spaceship Earth. It draws attention away from Cosmic Rewind and blocks some views of the building.

When does Cosmic Rewind become the new park icon and get the twinkly lighting package?

Magic Kingdom saw what Hong Kong did to their castle. Magic Kingdom responds “Hold my beer”.

So who wants to get rid of Cinderella Castle?

I can’t even think of a single excuse as to why anyone would find that paint job acceptable. Perhaps the buildings were painted ugly as way to convince management they were an eyesore and one needed to go.

Agreed, they at least had actual color instead of the barf palette used for Innoventions

I hated the rainbow spines, but TBH they had a much better aesthetic than the final paint job of Innoventions/Communicore.
