Again on October 1, Walt Disney World Resort kicked off its 18-month “World’s Most Magical Celebration” of the Resort’s fiftieth Anniversary.

As promised final week, I gave my first spoiler-free impressions of the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind attraction on our MousePlanet Fb, Instagram, and Twitter channels on Might 5, through the media occasion. As I did on social media, I’ll preserve my feedback concerning the new attraction largely spoiler-free on this Replace. In complete, I rode the brand new coaster 5 occasions through the media preview—unfold out throughout practically 12 hours. My expertise was very like the sooner preview buzz I had heard: it is a very easy journey that could cause some dizziness for spinning-sensitive riders.
I posted my spoiler-free first impression of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind on MousePlanet Social Media Channels inside minutes of exiting the attraction on Thursday morning, Might 5, 2022. Video by Alan S. Dalinka.
Up to now, I have never been vulnerable to dizziness or movement illness on any theme park attraction I’ve ever been on (though I’ve by no means favored the bodily sensations of Mission: House, and have skipped the extra aggressive Six Flags parks’ spinning sights that additionally repeatedly go the other way up). Truthfully, I felt I might need grow to be in poor health on my first journey on Cosmic Rewind if it was a minute longer than it’s. I used to be, nonetheless, working on lower than 5 hours of sleep, and had simply an power bar and glass of orange juice earlier than that journey.
The extra occasions I rode, the extra snug I felt—however no journey for me was utterly with out moments of motion-related dizziness. I do have a concept about my expertise that I plan to discover on my upcoming Passholder preview journey alternative: I put on multifocal contact lenses that may trigger vision-related points when my pupils dilate at the hours of darkness, so I will put on my single-vision glasses subsequent time to see if that makes a distinction. My lenses do not trigger points on different curler coasters, however I’ve lengthy suspected them of compounding how little consolation I’ve using Mission: House as a result of spinning and video (even the video on the Inexperienced facet of the attraction). Keep tuned.
My fifth and last journey (up to now) was with and on the invitation of Disney Parks Chairman Josh D’Amaro, together with another members of the media.
The music featured on the attraction (and the Guardians films) may be very a lot of my technology, so I actually loved that. Much more music from that period is featured within the attraction’s exit space. The eye to element within the queue and pre-show are high notch (and I didn’t even get to see all the particulars within the queue, as a result of components have been used for media interviews whereas I used to be in there, so the audio was turned down or off and I couldn’t entry each exhibit). The video high quality on the journey itself was fairly clear and detailed too. In candor, I’ve not been an ardent follower of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, however I’ve loved watching the 2 Guardians movies on a number of events, I loved Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout over in Disney California Journey, and, regardless of the bits of rider discomfort, on the entire, I actually loved this state-of-the-art new attraction at EPCOT and sit up for using once more.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind Formally Opens Might 27
As lined in our Walt Disney World Resort Updates for the previous few weeks, EPCOT’s newest attraction, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind debuts Might 27, and previews are underway. This previous Thursday was Media Preview Day for the brand new attraction, and I acquired my first rides aboard what Disney is describing as a “family-thrill coaster” situated in what’s now known as the World Discovery neighborhood of the park.
Visitors enter the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind attraction within the reimagined Universe of Power pavilion which is now the Wonders of Xandar pavilion. Photograph courtesy Disney Parks.
The brand new attraction contains EPCOT’s first curler coaster. It’s Disney’s longest indoor curler coaster, and one of many longest indoor curler coasters on this planet. It’s Disney’s first coaster to characteristic a reverse-launch, and the primary to be what Disney calls an “Omnicoaster,” which signifies that the automobiles are rotated 360 levels whereas using down the observe to comply with the story. As talked about within the Author’s Observe, it is this final new characteristic which will trigger some riders extra dizziness than a typical coaster.
The attraction is themed across the Disney-owned Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy movies, that includes “legendary cosmic outlaws”—Rocket, Groot, Drax, Gamora and Star-Lord a.ok.a. Peter Quill. When Disney first revealed again in 2016 that an EPCOT attraction could be themed across the Guardians of the Galaxy characters, the preliminary story particulars revealed included the truth that a younger Peter Quill, having been raised on Earth, visited EPCOT sooner or later within the early years of the park’s operation. Whereas that storyline doesn’t issue into the principle motion of the attraction, there are parts of that story woven all through the queue, on-ride dialogue, and, specifically, the retro-EPCOT-style merchandise out there within the hooked up Treasures of Xandar store.
Guardians of the Galaxy characters, like Rocket and Groot proven right here, make appearances all through the attraction’s queue, pre-show, and on the attraction. Disney Imagineers have been on the set of the yet-to-be-released “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” to seize performances by the Guardians for the attraction. Photograph by Alan S. Dalinka.
Visitors enter the brand new attraction via what Disney is asking the primary “other-world“ showcase pavilion at EPCOT: The Wonders of Xandar pavilion. Xandarians traveled from their homeworld within the Andromeda Galaxy to Earth—or Terra, as they name it—and are inviting EPCOT friends to study extra about their individuals and their superior applied sciences. Tying the story again to the initially revealed particulars, Disney says that Peter Quill liked his childhood go to to EPCOT a lot that “he recommended the Disney park as the proper place for Xandarians to attach with Terrans.”
The Wonders of Xandar pavilion options three most important sections:
- The Galaxarium, a planetarium-style area showcasing planets, stars and different intergalactic wonders that join Terra and Xandar – “reinforcing the notion that we’re all born of the identical area mud.” The Xandarian supercomputer, Worldmind, supplies narration within the Galaxarium and offers context to the gorgeous visuals.
- The Xandar Gallery, the place friends study extra concerning the Xandarian individuals, tradition and historical past – together with the heroes of Xandar – via specifically crafted shows together with fashions of starships and a Xandarian metropolis. The gallery additionally options excerpts from “Good Morning Xandar,“ the place a number interviews the Guardians of the Galaxy about their heroic deeds.
- The Section Chamber, the ultimate cease on the tour, the place friends are “teleported” from EPCOT to a Nova Corps Starcharter cruiser orbiting Earth to study concerning the Cosmic Generator, a bit of Xandarian know-how that creates bounce factors – synthetic tunnels in area permitting for fast journey throughout huge distances.
There are numerous particulars to discover within the attraction’s queue. Photograph by Alan S. Dalinka.
Virtually talking, the principle queue enters the constructing that previously was dwelling to the Universe of Power, and winds via the Galaxarium and the Xandar Gallery. In conventional fashionable Disney attraction trend, there are two pathways via: one which may very well be a Lightning Lane and one which may very well be a standby line. Disney representatives didn’t discuss it through the Media Day, however the My Disney Expertise app says that when the attraction opens on Might 27, a digital queue shall be in place that may require friends to make use of the app to enter the attraction and that there won’t be a standby queue: “Boarding teams for a digital queue are restricted, topic to availability, and will not be assured. Not all boarding teams could also be known as to return, primarily based on availability of the expertise.” Visitors may even have the chance to buy particular person Lightning Lane entry for the attraction (additionally restricted in availability and topic to alter). As of publication, then, it doesn’t seem that the brand new attraction shall be included within the value of the Genie+ journey reservation service and that buying Genie+ won’t be needed to try to get within the digital queue or buy particular person Lightning Lane entry.
The 2 paths via the queue converge on the Section Chamber the place friends are “teleported” to area and, with out spoiling something, one thing goes improper prefer it normally does within the storyline of a Disney attraction. Visitors are known as upon to assist. If in case you have purposely been avoiding any of the story particulars, this is able to be the purpose to skip forward to the Rider Entry part beneath. I’m not going to share any true spoilers gained by experiencing the attraction, solely the story as Disney revealed it upfront of my preview final week.
What goes improper is that Eson, a Celestial, who has been watching Earth for eons, now intends to make use of the Cosmic Generator to leap again in time and alter the course of humanity. Nova Prime Irani Rael (portrayed, as within the movies, by actress Glenn Shut), instructions her high officer, Centurion Tal Marik (portrayed by actor Terry Crews), to contact the Guardians of the Galaxy instantly and ask for his or her help. We Terrans (people visiting EPCOT) should evacuate the ship by way of Starjumper shuttles, the small escape pods that launch from the Starcharter cruiser and look a complete lot like a ten row by two seat curler coaster prepare cut up into four-person automobiles.
The Guardians of the Galaxy reprogram the Starjumpers so friends assist them observe down Eson, whereas being accompanied by certainly one of six (randomly chosen) “Superior Combine” tunes carried out by the unique artists: “September,” “Disco Inferno,” “Conga,” “Everyone Desires to Rule the World,” “I Ran”, or “One Method or One other.” Visitors then comply with the Celestial “via a bounce level on an intergalactic chase to save lots of the galaxy” and, in fact, finally return to EPCOT to be hailed as heroes. A number of Guardians of the Galaxy banter happens alongside the best way, with a bit variation in among the remarks alongside the best way, together with some EPCOT jokes.
Although billed as a “household coaster,” the attraction does have a 42 inch (107 cm) minimal peak requirement. My Disney Expertise says it’s age acceptable for adults, teenagers, and tweens. It additionally mentions that sure physique sizes and styles could not be capable of journey due to the restraints. The seats, nonetheless, are fairly roomy each in width and leg room; the lap-bar fashion restraints felt similar to Expedition Everest in consolation (in different phrases, much more snug than Seven Dwarfs Mine Practice, and a tad extra snug than even House Mountain’s lap restraint).
Visitors should be not less than 42 inches (107 cm) tall to journey. The attraction has the same old posted warnings about being a curler coaster-style journey at the hours of darkness. Photograph by Alan S. Dalinka.

Service animals will not be permitted aboard the journey. Visitors should be capable of switch from a wheelchair to board the coaster. The coaster could also be boarded from both a platform on the proper or a platform on the left. To help friends with boarding, row 10 of every coaster prepare will be opened additional on either side by solid member ride-operators. If a visitor must exit on a sure facet, the solid member operator can electronically “tag” that prepare in order that it returns to an unload station on the identical facet because it boards (in any other case that isn’t assured).
Row 10 of every coaster prepare will be opened additional by solid members to help with loading and unloading friends with some particular wants. Video by Alan S. Dalinka.
For the Media Occasion, Disney put in particular tools to seize among the on-ride expertise combined in with different video of the attraction. There may be an on-ride PhotoPass picture seize of friends on the journey – although, as has occurred at different media occasions, it doesn’t appear to have been totally useful through the preview (some members of the media obtained pictures of their My Disney Expertise, some, like me, didn’t, however I’ll go go to a PhotoPass desk within the coming days to see if it may be situated). Visitors have to both be carrying an lively MagicBand (with an excellent battery) or have their Bluetooth enabled smartphone enabled within the My Disney Expertise app.

For the store’s opening, there are 4 product strains. Disney describes them as follows:
