    Exclamation Walt Disney World Resort Proclaims Guardians of the Galaxy Will Set Coaster Record

    From the D23 Expo 2018 in Japan:

This one-of-a-kind family attraction will be one of the world’s longest enclosed roller coasters when it’s added to Future World at Epcot. It’ll feature a unique story currently being created by Walt Disney Imagineering and include a new innovative ride system that’s guaranteed to “wow” guests.

    The “Guardians of the Galaxy”-inspired coaster is part of our ongoing work to transform Epcot into a place that’s more family, more relevant, more timeless and more Disney. “As we build upon its core mission of optimism and hope to inspire the world, the real will become fantastic and the fantastic will become real—in whole new ways at Epcot,” Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, said.

    The attraction will open in time for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort in 2021.

    Glad to hear that WDW is going for a big deal with a new attraction. I can imagine this could be very cool!

    So, are they still planning for this to use both the Universe of Energy pavilion AND the Wonders of Life pavilion areas? The write up seemed to imply only the UoE pavilion area would be used.

    This is exciting. First, I love the Guardians of the Galaxy movies. Secondly, I love that Epcot is finally getting a little TLC, well over do and hope there is a lot more to come. Thirdly, I am excited to see what they do with it.

    Very cool, yes. I also can imagine the 3 hour plus wait times to ride this. Oh well, maybe it'll draw off some of the crowds from Frozen & Soarin'...and when was that opening date again? Hmmm.
    First trip, Christmas 1971.
    Last Trip, Oct. 2017 - ICOT20!

    Hmmm....

    I hope those excited about it do end up enjoying it. I'm not hear to rain on any parades.

    Unfortunately for me, the changes to Future World tell me that I would enjoy entering through the International Gateway more than ever before.
