REVIEW: Guardians of the Galaxy Cookie at EPCOT Celebrates Movie’s Release

In honor of the release of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” today, May 5, EPCOT has two new Guardians-inspired treats. At the popcorn stand near Mission: SPACE, guests can find the Guardians of the Galaxy cookie.

Guardians of the Galaxy Cookie – $4

This cookie is soft and fresh. It tastes like a standard sugar cookie.

The fondant medallion on top, decorated with a Guardians of the Galaxy badge, didn’t have much of a taste at first. But it ultimately added a semi-sweet aftertaste.

Overall, this wasn’t bad, but kind of boring.

Disney did not announce how long the Guardians of the Galaxy cookie will be available. Other Guardians of the Galaxy treats and a sipper will be available at Disneyland Resort.

“Guardians of the Galaxy” focuses on a group of extraterrestrial criminals on the run who initially team up for just causes when they tangle themselves in a dangerous struggle between Xandar and Kree fanatical Ronan the Accuser. 

“Vol. 3” is the long-awaited conclusion to a trilogy that began with 2014’s “Guardians of the Galaxy.” A relatively unknown team of superheroes to the general public before this film’s release, the franchise is now one of Marvel’s most popular and critically acclaimed, with the first two films grossing a combined $1.64 billion, as well as scoring 92% and 85% on Rotten Tomatoes, respectively.

The Guardians have also made appearances in “Avengers: Infinity War,” “Avengers: Endgame,” and “Thor: Love and Thunder” — plus a roughly half-feature-length Holiday Special on Disney+. They’ve spawned a series of video games, and are now featured in two Disney Parks attractions: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT and Mission: Breakout at Disney California Adventure. 

James Gunn, doubling as writer and director, has repeatedly expressed his profound desire to wrap the trilogy up with the utmost propriety, calling it “the hardest thing I’ve ever done” in an interview with Entertainment Weekly

As some of the only Marvel characters that Disney can legally use at Walt Disney World, the Guardians are featured in EPCOT’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. The ride replaces Ellen’s Energy Adventure / Universe of Energy, utilizing the same façade for guests to enter the Wonders of Xandar pavilion.

“Guardians of the Galaxy — Awesome Mix Live!” was a stage show previously performed at EPCOT on and off from 2018 to 2020. The show featured Star-Lord and Gamora.

In Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure, guests can ride Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout! This ride is a reskin of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. Star-Lord and Gamora also appear for the street dance party “Guardians of the Galaxy – Awesome Dance Off!”

The couple has also hosted a dance-off at Avengers Campus in Disneyland Paris and at Tomorrowland / Stark Expo in Hong Kong Disneyland.
