This rumor is pretty far out there, but it seems to be gaining some traction, so it might be worth talking about…

The latest rumor making the rounds says that the Mission: SPACE attraction at Epcot may be getting a Guardians of the Galaxy overlay. This does make some sense since it sounds like the Tower of Terror in Florida will be spared the Guardians of the Galaxy overlay coming to California, but probably makes little sense in the Epcot of today.The Epcot of tomorrow, well that’s a different story…

There has certainly been rumors of the TRON Lightcycle Power Run attraction coming to Walt Disney World, even before it was announced for Shanghai Disneyland. Current rumblings place the TRON ride somewhere in Future World, while inside sources seem confident that the Ratatouille attraction from Paris will land in the France pavilion before the end of the decade.

Is an Epcot riddled with IPs on the way? The addition and success of Frozen Ever After in Norway leads me to believe it is. What will this mean for the future of the park? Is there any life left in the original vision for the park? Not under the Iger administration which seems hellbent on installing all of the company’s most current Intellectual Properties at the Disney Parks around the world.

None of this is confirmed at this time, and some of it I haven’t really been able to even feel out with any inside sources at the company yet. Regardless, stay tuned for any further information on these rumors should more information become available.
