    Is the guardian of the galaxy ride opening in 2021. In Walt Disney world

    Greetings, Paula!

    Thanks for cruising by planDisney with your question!

    As a Marvel fan myself, I am eagerly awaiting news about the opening of the new Guardians of the Galaxy - themed attraction coming to Epcot. I've had my eye on the construction of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind since it began, and I love any little update that Disney puts out about the progress! Check out this description of the attraction from the Disney Parks Blog: 

    "Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will be the first “other-world” showcase pavilion at Epcot. The adventure starts in the “Galaxarium,” a planetarium-like exhibition that explores the similarities and mysteries of the formation of Earth’s galaxy and Xandar. You will be invited to learn more about the treasures Xandar has to share – until the moment when the Guardians of the Galaxy arrive, and adventures across the cosmos ensue. The attraction will feature a new innovation from Walt Disney Imagineering – a storytelling coaster that rotates 360 degrees to focus your attention on the action, including the first reverse launch on a Disney coaster."

    I was fascinated to see the amazing ride vehicles when Disney Parks shared a video of the groundbreaking new ride system they've developed for the attraction! Wow - that looks like so much fun!

    I asked my friend Groot when we can expect to hear about an opening date for this attraction, and I'll bet you can guess what he said. Yep, he said, "I am Groot." I think we'll have better luck keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog and Walt Disney World Resort on Facebook and Twitter for the most up-to-date news and announcements about this awesome new attraction. My fingers are crossed that we will be able to experience this out-of-this-world ride sometime in 2021!

    Until then - keep your feet on the ground, and keep reaching for the stars!
