The coaster, called Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, takes place during Peter Quill’s visit to Epcot in the 1980s. So, get ready for plenty of throwback Epcot nostalgia. It’s up to riders to help the Guardians save the galaxy!

The ride will start in the “Galaxarium“, a planetarium-like structure. It showcases the similarities between Earth’s galaxy (the Milky Way) and the Guardians galaxy (Xandar).

Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is set open Summer 2022.

You can check out the exterior of this attraction and even an exclusive sneak peek featuring Glenn Close. Be sure to check out the great details for this attraction from an interview with Disney Imagineer, Watt Winter.

We were also overjoyed to hear Walt Disney World’s president, Jeff Vahle, experience after he participated in a test ride of this amazing coaster. The completion of this attraction will be part of the huge transformation of EPCOT.

Epcot’s new restaurant, Connections Cafe and Eatery, will be located in World Celebration location. It will sit just outside of Creations Shop, Epcot’s newly re-imagined flagship gift shop. 

This dining location replaces the Electric Umbrella and will serve as a quick service dining location. This will be a great addition to EPCOT. We now have a sign that both Connections Cafe and Eatery and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind are on track for opening soon.

  1. Looking forward to Guardians of the Galaxy but the mention of the Creations Shop reminded me of how disappointed I was with this shop. My daughter and I went in after it opened and after a few minutes turned around and walked out. In my opinion not a good addition to Epcot.
    Sorry as know this is off subject.
