The Nova Corps Starblaster continues to receive its finishing touches at EPCOT's soon-to-open Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind.

Most notably in the last couple of days, the connection between the support stand and the ship has been covered - hiding the bolts that have been previously visible.

According to a recent Twitter post by a high ranking Disney executive, Guardians of the Galaxy is planned to open at EPCOT on Memorial Day weekend. However, Disney is yet to announce a specific timeframe via official channels.

How could you say that?? It's the most tame, basic, uneventful roller coaster Epcot has had in its entire history!! Stupid Judy...

Agree to disagree friend!!! No other roller coaster offers this lever of thrill.... In Epcot

I don't see how you could think that. It's definitely the worst roller coaster in Epcot by far! ...

I agree.. Guardians is my favorite roller coaster in WDW as well.. BY FAR the best roller coaster in Epcot.. BY FAR!!

There will at least be a new bypass along the northern edge of Journey of Water that takes you directly there even after the existing backstage one closes. Not quite the same, but similar effect of making Coral Reef less of a dead end than before.

I've kinda gotten used to the one by coral reef! Bummer.

No. Both this pathway and the pathway directly to the Coral Reef Restaurant will eventually close and were intended to be temporary until the paths around Spaceship Earth to the hub could be re-opened.

So is this walkway from the front to Guardians not reopening?

Nice to know. Maybe the Bruce Broughton boxset will release eventually. They also directly link to your video in the description.

I want to say yes, but in a jumbled mess. I never had the inclination to reassemble it. I had it mixed with cues from Le Visionarium. At least they kept my watermark in ❤️

Kinda related: I don't recall hearing the absolute entirety of the EEA soundtrack. Has this been out there for a while? @marni1971

Some theming has been added to the gate in the seating area to the left of the entrance.
