This morning, Walt Disney World Resort’s holiday lineup was revealed. The list of new and old offerings looks absolutely incredible. It really seems like there will be something for everyone this year.

However, with all of the new and exciting announcements, some fans noticed a major one missing from the lineup!

Disney Holiday Lineup Missing a Key Player

Fans were shocked to hear that an iconic Walt Disney World attraction would not be getting a holiday overlay this year. Every year, Disney gives certain rides a holiday overlay, meaning they redecorate the ride to fit a holiday theme. This happens at both Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort, and fans love this unique tradition.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will be getting a holiday overlay this season.

What Happened to ‘Guardians’ Holiday Overlay?

This morning, Disney announced all of the exciting events that would be coming to the Parks this holiday season. Noticeably missing was the holiday remix for EPCOT’s Guardians of the Galaxy roller coaster. Last year, the ride was given a holiday makeover and swapped out its regular tunes for holiday songs. The overlay did get mixed reactions, so it seems like Disney has made the decision not to go through with the overlay.

While some Guests will definitely be sad not to have this overlay, the plethora of other events will surely make up for it.
