Disney lovers, get excited because a brand new family-thrill coaster is coming to EPCOT and will take guests on an intergalactic chase through time and space with the heroes of Xandar.

Saving the galaxy this time is gonna take more than a dance-off.

Starting May 27, 2022, guests visiting EPCOT at Walt Disney World Resort better get ready to crank up the mixtape and blast through an awesome intergalactic chase through time and space in Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind!

This thrilling new family-friendly coaster matches the “grandosity” and fun of the blockbuster “Guardians of the Galaxy” films, featuring those lovable cosmic misfits – Rocket, Groot, Drax, Gamora and Star-Lord.

Walt Disney World Resort says the attraction is another major milestone in the ongoing transformation of EPCOT and debuts as part of its 50th Anniversary celebration.

Located in the park’s newly renamed World Discovery neighborhood, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will be the first “other-world” showcase pavilion at EPCOT.

Xandarians travelled from their homeworld in the Andromeda galaxy to Earth – or Terra, as they call it – to build this Wonders of Xandar pavilion, inviting EPCOT guests to learn more about their people and their advanced technologies.

Until the Guardians arrive, anyway, and adventure ensues…

In addition to the Wonders of Xandar pavilion, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will offer several other “firsts,” including the first coaster attraction at EPCOT, the first reverse launch for a Disney coaster, and the first Walt Disney World attraction to feature the Guardians of the Galaxy.

As well as that, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will be one of the longest fully enclosed coasters in the world, housed in one of the largest show buildings ever constructed for a Disney theme park.

By volume, four Spaceship Earths would fit inside the attraction’s massive new show building!
