Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind

Crank up the mixtape and get ready for an intergalactic adventure, because Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will be launches at EPCOT on May 27, 2022!

“This thrilling new family-friendly coaster matches the “grandosity” and fun of the blockbuster “Guardians of the Galaxy” films, featuring those lovable cosmic misfits – Rocket, Groot, Drax, Gamora and Star-Lord. The attraction is another major milestone in the ongoing transformation of EPCOT and debuts as part of the Walt Disney World 50thAnniversary celebration.”

A New Kind of Family Thrill

In addition to the Wonders of Xandar pavilion, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will offer several other “firsts,” including:

  • The first coaster attraction at EPCOT.
  • The first reverse launch for a Disney coaster.
  • The first Walt Disney World attraction to feature the Guardians of the Galaxy.
  • The first “other-world” showcase pavilion at EPCOT. 

“Xandarians traveled from their homeworld in the Andromeda galaxy to Earth – or Terra, as they call it – to build this Wonders of Xandar pavilion, inviting EPCOT guests to learn more about their people and their advanced technologies.”
