Guardians of the Galaxy: The New Epcot Attraction

Epcot Guardians of the Galaxy Attraction

Epcot is about to undergo major changes. Indeed, Disney World recently announced that the old “Universe of Energy” is soon to be replaced by the a brand new “The Guardians of the Galaxy” attraction. This is the first ever Marvel-themed attraction to come to Disney World Florida! Epcot will host our favorite Guardians of the Galaxy characters who will bring a whole new dimension of fun and games to the ageing park.

The brand new attraction will be an E-ticket attraction and is likely to feature ‘Groot’ and ‘Rocket’ as Disney revealed to the D23 Expo guests. The idea is to re-energize Epcot with some Disney “wow” factor, and what better way to inspire young and old generations with the funny and adventurous movie “The Guardians of the Galaxy”?

The many changes announced by Disney this year for its Orlando parks are taking a distinct ‘out-of-this-world’ path which will take guests on many space adventures, and Epcot is not being left behind! The reason to “The Guardians of the Galaxy” coming to Epcot is directly linked to Peter Quill (aka Star Lord in the movie) visiting Epcot when he was a child.

The current “Universe of Energy” attraction has already been closed since earlier this August and guests who are eager to meet ‘Groot’ are likely to have to wait a few years before the attraction opens to the public! In the meantime we will follow the advancements of this new attraction very closely in the future!
