And speaking of the new Guardians of the Galaxy attraction, progress continues to be made on the exciting new attraction. Recently, Guests and Disney fans alike shared their strong reactions to the new display set up in front of the ride’s show building with many being critical of it. Now it appears that Disney has covered that specific element up, with many preferring this new look to the old one we saw a few weeks ago.

A recent tweet from bioreconstruct (@bioreconstruct) gave us a great view, check it out below:

An Extraterrestrial Escapade

Begin your adventure by touring the Galaxarium—a planetarium-like exhibition showcasing the similarities and differences between Xandar and Earth’s galaxies. You’ll even get to discover some of the incredible wonders of Xandar and learn about their technology.

Just as you are about to reach the culmination of the tour, everything goes sideways, and you are called into action to help the Guardians of the Galaxy. Are you ready to rock out on an awesome quest across the cosmos to save the galaxy? It’s all up to you!

This family-friendly attraction features the first ever reverse-launch on a Disney coaster and is one of the longest enclosed coasters in the world! A new innovation from Walt Disney Imagineering—this coaster rotates 360 degrees so you can focus on the action!

At the moment, EPCOT is celebrating the Festival of the Arts, and tons of construction is going on! Spaceship Earth now has the new Beacon of Magic lights illuminating the sphere and Future World is on the road to completion. Club Cool and the new Creations Shop is open to Guests as well as Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure in the France Pavilion! Plus, you can enjoy the stunning Harmonious show each evening!

Are you excited for this new thrill ride to open at EPCOT? Let us know in the comments below.
