PHOTOS: More Paneling Added to Roof of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT

We’ve seen some interesting strides in exterior construction of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT recently. The foundation was recently completed for the Xandarian ship that will eventually grace the entrance and new decorative paneling was added to the roof.


In front of the show building, there isn’t much to see except dirt.


The Xandarian ship is most likely being constructed off-site and will be installed later.


A few weeks ago, a bridge was added between some of the roof paneling and later covered with blue sheeting.

Another row of decorative paneling now covers some of the blue sheeting. As we previously noted, this paneling is very different from what was seen in concept art.


These have vertical lines that extend above the panels, while the concept rendering shows smooth paneling.

Artist concept rendering: Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will be the first “other-world” showcase pavilion at EPCOT at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. The adventure starts in the Galaxarium, a planetarium-like exhibition that explores the similarities and mysteries of the formation of Earth’s galaxy and Xandar. Guests will be invited to learn more about the treasures Xandar has to share – until the moment when the Guardians of the Galaxy arrive, and adventures across the cosmos ensue. The attraction will feature a new innovation from Walt Disney Imagineering – a storytelling coaster that rotates 360 degrees to focus guests on the action, including the first reverse launch on a Disney coaster.

Though it was originally thought solar panels would be installed on the roof to reflect the pavilion’s original theme of energy, this is not the case.
