A couple of rumors were confirmed last night with regards to the new Epcot Guardians of the Galaxy ride:

  1. It will be a roller coaster; and
  2. It will be opening in 2021 to coincide with Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary.

Aside from these important details, we got a bit more from the Disney Parks blog. Here are a few more tidbits about the ride:

With the “Guardians of the Galaxy”-inspired coaster, we’re going big. This one-of-a-kind family attraction will be one of the world’s longest enclosed roller coasters when it’s added to Future World at Epcot. It’ll feature a unique story currently being created by Walt Disney Imagineering and include a new innovative ride system that’s guaranteed to “wow” guests.

The “Guardians of the Galaxy”-inspired coaster is part of our ongoing work to transform Epcot into a place that’s more family, more relevant, more timeless and more Disney. “As we build upon its core mission of optimism and hope to inspire the world, the real will become fantastic and the fantastic will become real—in whole new ways at Epcot,” Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, said.

As always, I will be adding updates about the Guardians of the Galaxy ride at Epcot when new details emerge, so be sure to subscribe and stay tuned!
