The new Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind Holiday Remix made its debut this morning as part of EPCOT’s International Festival of the Holidays.

The holiday overlay to the hugely popular Cosmic Rewind rollercoaster replaces the classic 80’s tunes with an original holiday music arrangement. The song features parts of "Run Run Rudolph" with new wording to "Run Run Rocket." Other holiday tunes that are part of the remix include "Jingle Bells," "Deck the Halls," "Go Tell It on the Mountain," and "We Wish You A Merry Christmas." No changes have been made to the pre-show or projections inside the ride.

Take a listen to the new soundtrack at the video below. (4K YouTube)

You can experience the Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind Holiday Remix through December 30, 2022. Only the new soundtrack will be available during the holiday season, with the original playlist returning after the holidays.

The existing Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind song list is:

  • "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" by Tears for Fears
  • "Conga" by Gloria Estefan
  • "I ran (so far away)" by a Flock of Seagulls
  • "Disco Inferno" by the Trammps
  • "One Way or Another" by Blondie
  • "September" by Earth Wind and Fire

Right now in hallway after final preshow. All music is off, any updates from the load? EDIT:Now “temporarily closed” on MDE

Currently stuck in line at Guardians. No boarded the one train. They tested each set of lap bars, place some sort of ribbon around the lap bar on the front car. Now they are constantly running empty trains. Any idea what this could be? And should I get on once passengers are loaded again lol? EDIT: now they shut it down entirely. All the lights are on in the load area and the sound effects are off.

Kinda funny that they left out the guy at PGAV who leaked the floor plans

I would love for them to add new songs to this ride. A couple that come to mind are Back in Black by ACDC and Fight for your right by Beastie Boys

There’s no reason why they can’t do that in Tomorrowland.

Do you know why they would leave out the actors and Marvel gang that provided the thematic portion of the ride? Or is it just about the mechanical engineering?

I scrolled through the credits like I would for a movie. But their accolades are well-deserved. I rode it again on Tuesday and, man, I just LOVE that ride! The exhilaration. The music. The "wind". The movement of the vehicles. I could ride it over and over and over again.

For context, this list was created to qualify for the Thea Awards and will be published on the TEA website in the awards ceremony program after the event this weekend.

An official credits list of those who worked on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind has been posted online from an Imagineer at WDI.

Agreed. Everest at night is a completely different experience due to the complete darkness.

Every time I rode Everest there was light bleed in the backwards section revealing the inside structure. I dunno why they couldn't seal it better

Guardians suffers from too much light and reflection in a few scenes but is still easily my favorite Disney Coaster next to Old Space Mountain. If they could use a matte paint on some of the surfaces in the Guardians show building that would help...but it would also be difficult to clean... but I really think it is a solid, super-fun ride...
