Disney fans are always excited to learn what is happening around the Resorts worldwide, with so many parks and attractions to offer! Today, with Destination D23 ongoing at Walt Disney World, a ton of announcements and reveals are being made!
One if the attractions that Disney fans have been itching to ride and learn more about is Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. The new attraction will allow Guests to undergo a wild amount of twists and turns, and it seems that the built-up hype will surely be worth it. The coaster is located in one of EPCOT’s new neighborhoods, World Discovery. This will be the second Guardians of the Galaxy-themed attraction at Disney Parks in the U.S., the first being Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! at Disney California Adventure at Disneyland Resort.
Today, Disney finally announced a timeline for the coaster’s opening! Previously, we knew the attraction would open in 2022. Now, we know Summer 2022 is when we can get ready to explore and see Xandar brought to life as the planet and its Nova Corps have decided to establish EPCOT’s first “Other-World Showcase” pavilion.
On top of all the coaster news, we learned more about whom we can expect to see in the attraction. Glenn Close will be reprising her role as Nova Prime, the Xandarian leader and commander of the Nova Corps! Although it was not announced where we will see Close appear in the attraction, my bet would be in the ride’s pre-show!

Disney Park Blog describes the attraction technology as:
The Omnicoaster is a first- of-its-kind programmable roller coaster ride system, where guests can be rotated along the ride track in any direction while traveling at high speeds. The Omnicoaster name builds upon the tradition of the Omnimover ride system in which Walt Disney Imagineers are able to turn guests in any direction and focus their attention on a specific scene or element.
What do you think of this news? Are you excited to ride the Marvel coaster once it is ready?
