Guardians of the Galaxy construction inside park - May 2019
Posted: Tuesday May 21, 2019 11:56am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

With most the Guardians of the Galaxy's coaster building now enclosed, here is a look at what will be the main entrance, queue and pre-show for the new Epcot ride.

The former Universe of Energy building is still just a shell, with a clear sight line from front to back through the building.

There is almost 2 years of construction still to go before the ride's planned spring 2021 opening.

Sounds like its going to be the same "Christmas Mashup" original song every time rather than a random Christmas song.

Songs would have to be 1988 and earlier that Star Lord would recognize. So several guesses. I'm going up tempo. Jingle Bell Rock (1957) Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer (1979) Rockin Around the Christmas Tree (1964) Christmas Baby - U2 (1987)

Stitch's Great Escape also had a direct English to Galactic lettering system way longer ago. Not to mention Futurama did, too.

This is people like THEZach thinking they are soooo smart and clever. I'm sure the 1200 page book on the backstory for this ride will be announced soon, at the low, low price of $99.99 ($5 discount for Disney+ subscribers).

Bad bourbon maybe? I've had some that wasn't worth having around for longer than a second.

Pandora was seemingly a language or at least a lot of words created for the IP.. This is as silly as insisting that aurebesh is a different language.

Who shoots bourbon? ;) I can't disagree - The story falls apart once you get on the actual ride. And there's so much in the queue, it's overload.

Rode this a second time at a private party with a gin and tonic, bourbon and Diet Coke, and shot of bourbon in me…but in the third row instead of the second to last. HUGE difference in my reaction to ride. Could it have been the alcohol? Sure, but I figured that would’ve made the experience worse. That said, riding front as opposed to back made a big difference in the disorientation that I felt initially. That said, the story is a mess. Say what you will about the “immersion” and whatnot, but once the ride actually starts, the whole thing falls apart with the story. Maybe a third time in a few months from now will yield different results since I know I will ask to be upfront (which I NEVER typically have to do on Disney rides) and this go around I was just worrying about not vomiting on my boss, but if the goal was to present an actual through line, I really don’t see this as a success.

rode 4 times, fantastic coaster. SM on crack is accurate. I like GotG so I don't mind that overlay, but it could easily be something else too
