As we enter a new year, there are plenty of new happenings around Walt Disney World, especially at the resort’s EPCOT theme park which is receiving multiple renovations and some major updates!
One of the highly anticipated upcoming attractions is the new Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind attraction. This Marvel-based thrill ride faced some setback while the park was closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but It has moved full-steam ahead in it’s construction lately. So much so, that rumor has it the attraction could be completed as soon as February of this year. But could it actually be true? Will the ride open in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary?

In the photos we see from @DrewDisneyDude, it looks as if more work is being put into finishing the exterior of the attraction.
Construction update: Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.
No major changes here since last week. The entrance cutout is now visible, along with some new scaffolding inside the building. pic.twitter.com/uH25xiykIF

And in this photo above, he points out what we can clearly see what will be the actual entrance of the attraction.
Judging from the concept art that we’ve seen, the exterior is going to be pretty spectacular and not something to be missed.
We also know that the ride vehicles look amazing that even baby Groot had to experience it for himself. It’s clear that Disney is getting Guests excited for what’s to come. See the video in the post linked below.
Most of what we know about this upcoming thrill attraction comes from Disney themselves. The describe Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind as follows:
At Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind the adventure will start in the “Galaxarium,” a planetarium-like exhibition that explores the similarities and mysteries of the formation of Earth’s galaxy and Xandar. You’ll be invited to learn more about Xandar’s treasures – until the moment when the Guardians of the Galaxy arrive, and adventures across the cosmos ensue.
Note that the new Guardians attraction wasn’t included in Disney’s announcements of the upcoming attractions for 2021 — but we also aren’t writing off the possibility that the company may surprise us with this new ride at EPCOT this year. Although Disney has not put out an official announcement of when the attraction will be ready to open, hopefully we won’t have to wait too long to experience Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.
