Guardians of the Galaxy construction - March 19 2021
Posted: Friday March 19, 2021 11:37am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

At EPCOT'S Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind this week, construction teams have been busy at the front of the building closing in the last remaining spaces in the exterior.

The upper section of the V-shaped front is now covered in plywood, with just a small section remaining to be covered in waterproofing material.

Still no further progress to see on the main roof of the building, and it remains unclear if any solar panels will return as we saw on the original Universe of Energy.

Disney is yet to announce an opening date for the Guardians of the Galaxy rollercoaster, but it is thought it will debut in 2022.

Honestly, what's there looks more like a mounting apparatus than anything final.

I am recollecting here but I am pretty sure we got explicit confirmation that the solar panels are coming back (or rather, new ones are coming).

Thanks, yeah saw those a while back and managed to put some of that layout in but seems to be missing a few bits of track that are visible. I have not tweeted everything I have modelled so far. Cobbled together the first gravity run after the launch, and then built into the Lift hill which i believe can only go on the rear wall.....possibly into the single Dome. im just not sure what happens after that as theres a whole bunch more track and another elevation in the photos....plus its gotta get back to the station. its a mystery

So dose it come with extra large bath bags??

Agreed. Jury is still out on if it is panels or not. Hoping for spaceships but expecting panels. Woot.

If solar panels are put on a roof they will be the last thing to go up.

they can be purchased by the pallet these days. Nothing novel about them until they need to go to be recycled. that will be WallE's problem though.

Looks like the final nail in the coffin for the return of Solar Panels.

The only thing close to a real layout are these sketches @marni1971 doodled up a long time ago:

Been following this thread for a little while without contributing, maybe this will bring you back on subject. This ride has been living in my head rent-free for a while. I built out the buildings to scale mostly cos i wanted to visualise the space, and pieced to gether what I could from the limited photos available. Ive gotta say im several months in and its still super puzzling to me, i wish i had a bit more info few more photos from inside or something, or a proper layout but anyway..

Ticket Tier discussion is in this thread starting with a post that lists the tier level of rides from when we had ticket books telling us their tiers. Many of the rides changed their tier level (mostly as crowd control, or, they lost their popularity). See (and discuss on topic ;) here... https://forums.wdwmagic.com/threads/a-e-ticket-attractions.895286/#post-8204650

It is understandably hard to place MFSR in the same category as RotR. I also find it hard to place Small World with Mansion. Sometimes my view of a ride is impacted by the ride next door.

For a year. Then the WEDWay dropped to a D.
