Guardians of the Galaxy construction - July 29 2020

Construction workers are back at Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind in EPCOT as progress resumes after a lengthy shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Welders can be seen on the rooftop of the former Universe of Energy, which will be home to the queue and pre-show area of Cosmic Rewind.

As with all projects, it isn't clear how the COVID-19 closures have impacted timelines for completion or an opening. Disney had previously not committed to an opening date beyond a general timeframe of 2021.

It has, that's why they replaced the roof. ;)

I’m more surprised nothing has leaked from Wonders. Not a floor plan, not a single photo from the inside, nothing. I haven’t seen a thing since interior demolition first started, seems like something would’ve leaked by now.

Not much to show in this screen filled coaster, at least not much to show that’s worth risking your job.

I may have missed a bit here and there, but this project has seemed to manage to stay under wraps pretty well. We’ve had a pic of the ride vehicle and a deliberately ambiguous sketch of the ride path. Seems more would have leaked by now.

I would think someone would leak pictures if that were the case.

I wonder how true the rumors are that the interior of the building and ride are basically done and just need footage of the Guardians.

Interesting item popped up in my social media feed yesterday... Guardians 3 is filming in the Atlanta/North Georgia area and they put out a casting call for extras. Filming dates are Nov 8, 2021 - March, 2022.

Racoons keep scratching up the roof

No one knows. The roof of Energy keeps getting new layer after layer. The roof of WoL keeps getting replaced. No one who has knowledge has said why.

Sorry, a bit late to the update party. So the roof is definitely not going to be solar panels?

I'd like it to be open by May 2022 but I won't get my hopes up.

We have a trip planned for the first week of May and I’m not thinking it will be open. Technically Spring doesn’t end until June 21 and I’ve seen them push those seasonal openings until the very last weekend. 😞

I read your tracker, but thought there might be something more firm. Planning the first week of May, so it should line up in guessing

Spring.
