  • I will miss Universe of Energy It was my favorite ride in Epcot. I can’t wait for the Guardians of the Galaxy Roller coaster.

  • I will always miss the original Universe of Energy, especially the songs. I won’t really miss the Ellen version. It was a fun little change for a while, but honestly, it felt dated almost immediately. This pavilion has been in dire need of an update for several years. The new GotG coaster should breathe a little life back into EPCOT. It is great to see management finally giving that park some much needed love. I can’t wait to see what they do.
