We’ve all been eagerly awaiting the arrival of EPCOT’s newest coaster attraction, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. Initially, the expected opening date for this attraction was to be in 2021… in time to celebrate Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, construction is still in the works and it’s looking like we can expect the attraction to open in 2022. Further confirmation that the attraction is in early to mid stages of development came from a tweet posted by Guardians of the Galaxy Director, James Gunn.

Much like many of Disney’s attractions, filming is key in the storytelling of the attraction. Take Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance for example, and the filming involved in that attraction. Well, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is expected to tell a story as well, and the filming has yet to happen. As reported by ComicBook.com: “Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn shared some insight about these upcoming projects and confirmed he will be directing the footage produced for these new rides while talking on social media. The EPCOT ride themed around the Guardians of the Galaxy characters, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, is still under construction and is expected to open on an undisclosed date in 2022.”

We’re all so ready for this attraction to be complete that yes, it’s extremely hard to wait! We can’t wait to hear the filming is complete instead of “on the agenda”. In the meantime, we’re continuing to look forward to Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary on October 1, 2021 which will be celebrated over an 18-month time frame. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more about Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and any possible opening date Disney reveals.
