Walt Disney World is home to four theme parks: Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Each Disney Park includes something for Guests of all ages and sizes to experience and explore. Guests heading to Disney Parks tend to think of Magic Kingdom, where you can spot Cinderella Castle or experience iconic attractions such as Jungle Cruise, “it’s a small world,” Pirates of the Caribbean, and many more. Guests heading to Disney’s Hollywood Studios can explore Toy Story Land or Star Wars Galaxy Edge. Disney World Guests heading to Disney’s Animal Kingdom can see different types of animals or visit Pandora from the Avatar movie.

Last but not least, EPCOT is home to learning about the world, the future, and different cultures. EPCOT stands for Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. Unlike any other Disney Park, EPCOT offers visitors a one-of-a-kind experience that combines education, innovation, and global exploration. From futuristic technology and immersive cultural showcases to thrilling attractions and delectable cuisines from around the world, EPCOT invites Guests to embark on a captivating journey through time, space, and culture. EPCOT has undergone changes over the last few years. EPCOT is in the process of building Journey of Water Inspired by Moana. EPCOT also has a new coaster that Guests find thrilling and exciting. Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind is the first roller coaster in the world to feature a reverse launch, propelling riders backward into the depths of the universe.

In a social media post, a Disney Guest experienced a rollback on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. While rollbacks are not uncommon, they do not happen often. This Guest was slightly terrified due to them hearing another cart above them while they were stopped.

“We experienced a roll back today on the last launch up the hill before the carts go around the moon or planet or whatever. It was ~slightly~ terrifying cause we heard another cart above us while we were sitting there, even though I knew another cart wasn’t coming into our section.

“It was pretty cool to experience, but it sucks that I paid for an ILL for the last third of the ride to be in the total dark without any music :(“

Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind uses a virtual queue, or Lightning Lane, which Guests can pay to ride this attraction.
