What a week it is for EPCOT! Tomorrow we will celebrate the grand official opening of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and La Crêperie de Paris in the recently expanded French pavilion at World Showcase. And then tomorrow night we’ll see the premiere of our new nightly show, “Harmonious,” at World Showcase Lagoon.
And while I’m very excited that you can discover all of these new experiences, there are even MORE ready as we continue to celebrate our 50th anniversary.th Walt Disney World Resort anniversary for the next 18 months. This morning I announced our next big attraction, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, which will debut in 2022. True, our Xandar friends will open the first “otherworldly” showcase pavilion at EPCOT l next year, inviting us to intergalactic pursuit through space and time!
Today, my fellow Imagineers, Tom Fitzgerald (left) and Scot Drake (right), have given us a new look inside the Wonders of Xandar pavilion under construction. Here you will see them at the Galaxarium, which, when completed, will present a planetary-type presentation where the Xandarians will show us their world, their people and their advanced technologies.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is a family adventure, offering a whole new kind of roller coaster experience that we are developing just for this attraction. Help the Guardians save the galaxy. Not only that, but Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will also feature the first roller coaster launch in Disney history and is one of the longest closed coasters in the world. It’s a massive experience that will coincide with the scale and adventure of The Guardians of the Galaxy movies.
As part of EPCOT’s ongoing transformation, we are infusing this park that we love and love with more ways to dream, to be inspired, and to connect with our world or other galaxies, in this case. Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will be a big step in that direction and we can’t wait for you to experience it. Follow me here on the Disney Parks blog and with me, @thezachriddley on Instagram, as we tell you about this amazing new attraction and everything that’s going on at EPCOT.
