Today we’re at Epcot checking out the progress on the construction of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Coaster! The updates have definitely slowed and gotten less visually fun and interesting to look at since the main show building has been completely enclosed, but that just means that we’re closer to the opening of this attraction, so it’s a fair trade-off from my perspective.
Additional side scaffolding has gone up, connected to the new front wall of the building.
There was a lot of activity happening on the roof of the old Ellen’s Energy Adventure show building. The solar panels that used to cover this rooftop are long gone, and it will be interesting to see what their plans are for it moving forward, since the roof is so visible, and this building will be the entrance to the attraction, they’ll have to do SOMETHING with it.
From the monorail you can get a good look at what’s behind the construction walls in the courtyard in front of the building. So far it’s just looked to be a dumping ground of debris and mess from construction.
There’s still work being done of the side of the building, with some upcoming painting progress to still be completed to cover the white primer towards the bottom of the strips closest to the front of the building.
Also from the monorail you can get a couple quick peeks of the back of the old Energy building, as well as the new show building that will house most of the attraction. It looks like they are in the process of getting the back of the Energy building painted one solid color grey, while the new show building is painted go away green towards the bottom, and sky blue at the top to help it blend it and be looked over, as much as a massive building of this size can be, at least.
We’re really looking forward to the opening of this attraction, it’s set to be one of the most thrilling attractions at Epcot. But we still have a while to wait, as its not anticipated to open until 2021. As always, stay tuned to WDWNT for all of the latest updates!
