Future World is getting new neighbors!

This week, the foundation was created for what will become Epcot’s “Guardians of the Galaxy”-themed attraction. To house one of the world’s longest enclosed coasters, Imagineers are constructing a second building adjacent to the Universe of Energy building.

Imagineers are working closely with the filmmakers for “Guardians of the Galaxy” to ensure that the experience is not only true to the characters we know and love but also to the vision of Epcot’s Future World and what it is meant to represent.

Walt Disney imagined the Future World portion of Epcot to be an idealistic look at the future and the cutting edge technology that could be coming. As our present catches up to the future we once imagined, it becomes more difficult to keep the areas maintained to a forward look at this future. This attraction, however, will come right back to what Future World was based on! An epic adventure through the cosmos with friends and aliens alike, all while playing some rockin’ tunes.

Guests who simply can’t wait to catch a glimpse of the Guardians in Epcot are invited to join Star-Lord and Gamora on an incredible journey in “Guardians of the Galaxy – Awesome Mix Live!” at the America Gardens Theatre at Epcot. You can rock out with your favorite heroes five times a day from June 9 through August 19.
