A Guardians of the Galaxy attraction will be coming to Epcot’s Future World area of the park, it was announced at Disney’s D23 Expo event. The ride is said to, “adhere to the original vision of Epcot’s Future World as the place to experience the excitement and adventure offered by space travel.”
This will be the second Guardians-inspired ride to arrive at a Disney park; the first, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!, debuted at Disney’s California Adventure park earlier in 2017. The presentation for the ride showed off that Peter Quill/Star-Lord visited Epcot as a child.
Concept art for the ride shows off the entryway, which appears to include one of the ships piloted by the Nova Corps. The ride will be replacing the current Universe of Energy attraction, which will close on August 13, 2017. The attraction is set to open in time for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World in 2021.
