PHOTOS: Railings Added to Courtyard Outside Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in EPCOT

Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is officially set to open next year at EPCOT. Though we can’t be sure how much construction is left to be completed inside the attraction, the exterior of the building and courtyard are coming together.


The Universe of Energy Pavilion has been renamed to Wonders of Xandar, the “Other-world Showcase.” Most of the roof has now been covered in silver paneling.


Blue weather-proof sheathing remains exposed on the front of the building. Pavement work seems to be completed directly in front of the building and in the courtyard.


New railings have been installed around the empty planters creating the courtyard’s triangular shape.


The supports at the center of the courtyard will hold up the Xandarian ship seen in concept art. The poles around it will presumably create a fence.


Crew members could be seen working near the exit of the attraction on the side of the building as well.


Here is concept art for the exterior of the attraction, but some elements have changed since the art’s creation. For example, the railings around the planters are not present in the art. It also appears that the completed attraction will have two entrances, while the concept art shows three.
