PHOTOS: More Synthetic Sheeting Added to Enclosed Facade of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT
Greetings from EPCOT! We’re back to see what’s new at the site of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind as work on the future attraction’s façade continues to move forward.
Since our last visit, we now have a clearer look at the ceiling of the right side of the façade, which has been entirely covered in blue synthetic sheeting.
The walls and doorway have already been wrapped in the same material to protect from rain and other weather, ensuring the structure survives the Florida elements.
As we reported, the ceiling on the left side has had wood paneling installed with square cutouts to accommodate light fixtures.
Wires currently dangle from the holes, though it’s unknown when the fixtures will be installed.
It’s very likely that once the process is complete, this area, too, will receive the same sheeting as the rest of the façade.
The same holes appear in the sheeting on the right, suggesting that the covering will be added before lighting is installed.
As the concept art below suggests, there’s still a lot of work to do before the building looks like an intergalactic pavilion with two entrances instead of the planned three, but at least from the exterior, it looks like progress is moving steadily. Less is known about the interior, though we did get a look at the Galaxarium back in December.
While previously scheduled to open this year, the ride is very likely delayed due to reprioritizing projects across Walt Disney World in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
