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.

Are you familiar enough with the theme? I'm not 100% convinced the ride itself is in the wrong park, but on the whole, I would certainly say that the IP probably is. My point is that there are story treatments involving the Guardians that would work in EPCOT, they are probably just better suited for DHS or MK.

Assuming they make another and its star wars themed, it may be in the right park, as I doubt theyd ever build 2 coasters this big in the same park.

I’m disappointed with many of the decisions WDI has made over the last two years, and Guardians is in the wrong theme park—but I’m also really looking forward to this ride. :)

this ride is gonna be amazing (probably) Im looking more forward to this than i was for RotR or really any ride I can remember. If its as good as I hope it is, then I hope they make another one like this in DHS that is star wars themed.

So what’s the current budget for this thing? I remember hearing something about it being insanely over budget (500 million?). Do we know what the original budget was?

The same blue vapor barrier is being installed on the front facing V shaped plywood today.

No, a second Cosmic Rewind track is being built and it will go into the big golf ball.

I'm hoping they'll tear down Spaceship Earth. It draws attention away from Cosmic Rewind and blocks some views of the building.

When does Cosmic Rewind become the new park icon and get the twinkly lighting package?

Magic Kingdom saw what Hong Kong did to their castle. Magic Kingdom responds “Hold my beer”.
