PHOTOS: Latest Construction Updates on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at Epcot

It’s been an exciting week for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, with a special sneak peek at the ride vehicle testing leaked recently, not to mention the fact that we now know the attraction’s official name, which is exciting in an of itself for people like me. Sadly, on the ground, there isn’t much going on, but we know everyone’s eager to track progress on the attraction, so here we are.

A series of large cranes pepper the construction site within the walls. At least the scaffolding on this side is now gone.

One of the side theming elements has a layer of white paint, perhaps primer on one side.

The concept art shows the entire facade of the attraction as basically just being grey in color, so we’ll have to see what they do moving forward as far as the color scheme goes.

That back wooden board is basically taking shape as the back edge of the attraction facade. There’s still some scaffolding off to one side. As you can also see in the concept art, the roof is supposed to house row upon row of solar panels much like the Universe of Energy originally did, but up until now, it appears they’ve only installed insulation so far.

There’s that interesting little window peeking out from behind the trees that hasn’t been enclosed. If you look closely, there are some plastic flaps out to the sides of it.

A whole new galaxy is coming to Epcot… now, with neighborhoods! Inside the attraction’s interior queue area, you can see that work continues to progress as well.

With Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind set to open in 2021, we’ve still a ways to go on this massive project, but after all, Disney’s first-ever reverse launch roller coaster wasn’t built in a day. In the meantime, you can check out our full walkthrough post, complete with maps to show you each section of the queue, loading area, launch tunnel, and show building.
