Walt Disney World Epcot Discussion Thread

P. 118: Guardians Cosmic Rewind opening May 27th!

Recommended Posts

^We just watched it again last night.  As jaded Disney locals the show is totally fine and great for normal guests!  I think my only small criticisms are the opening feels a little slow, like there should be fireworks sooner than they finally show up and the ending song seems a little out of place, the pyro is great during the ending and seems way more intense and energetic than the song.  The rest is amazing! People love the disney music and it's a lot of fun and high energy.

Remy's Ratatouille Adventure is switching from a virtual queue to a standby line

https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2022/01/scurry-into-standby-at-remys-ratatouille-adventure-at-epcot/

I'm glad to see the virtual queue is gone. I did not like waking up at 6:45 am with the chance of getting early boarding group when I wasn't going to Epcot until later in the day.

While I always got lucky getting boarding groups for Remy and Rise, it was a stressful experience.  I'd much rather have the option to just wait in a long line than be completely shutout from riding something because of a technological glitch or losing a game of fastest finger.

^ Totally agree on this.

And, are they also including Single Riders queue for Remy? Or not at all? I forget.

There was one in Paris, back in 2015, which is how I got to ride it five times in a row!

It worked fine, for myself.  🐀🐀🐀🐀🐀

Having boarding groups for Ratatouille was absolutely dumb.

They ended it because they needed the bandwith to use it for Cosmic Rewind. 😂

And now, for something completely different...

How about that support 'thing' for the "star jet"(?), now sitting in front of "Guardians...."?

I am really hoping they do something "mirror-like" in the (final?) finishing of it. Or .....?

It's so obvious, holding the ship up. But hopefully, they have something else planned, beyond what we're seeing. 🙂

 

P.S. This has nothing to do with the actual attraction itself. I am sooooo looking forward to riding this baby, woo hoo!

Today I was so deep into my boredom that I was killing time by fartin' around on Imgur and I came across a rather, shall we say, interesting looking building plan.  Now, I'm no expert, but this sure seems to match a certain construction site in Epcot and if, IF this is what I think it is, then hot damn, I see a significant portion of the layout in the Universe Of Energy building, seemingly dark ride-ish.  Possibly multiple endings?  I don't know.  I do know, though, that the top portion of the building is unquestionably a transfer track area.  I wish the resolution was better than potato-cam.

You can get more of them and in better resolution from a certain WDW news site if you google Project Sausalito.

Yup there’s definitely transfer tracks up north. It looks to be a dual loading station because the track branches in two different places before and after the station, which is in the middle. So I definitely think there will be some storytelling in this building before and after the action. 

Queue and preshow rooms are towards the left of the building after you enter the front.

Maintenance and riser rooms are to the right, which makes sense as the launch tunnel is that way too. 

There’s some images floating around online and a recent Good Morning America tour of the show building.  It’s a massive attraction.

I can’t wait!

The tweet has since been deleted and reposted without the date, but the Chief Corporate Affairs Officer for Disney says Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is opening Memorial Day weekend.

^It looks 'basic' as queues go, but the whole loading station looks really great,

with the theming that it has, and with the coaster trains there, lined up for their 'journeys into space'.

Am soooooooooooooooooooooo looking forward to this, on a future WDW trip!

Now, after watching "video rumors" here and there...... I will be "totally looking forward" to a Columbia Pavilion 

in EPCOT's World Showcase, with an attraction based on "Encanto: La Casita"...  😉

Could happen, yes? No? But "we won't talk about It, no, no, no...." 🎶

(THIS IS ALL BASED ON CURRENT UNSUBSTANTIATED RUMORS..)

A different kind of "Haunted Mansion." 🎵

I've always been disappointed that they've taken such a complacent approach with World Showcase. Still a good bit of real estate to work with back there to squeeze in a few more countries. With attendance rising across all parks, it seems totally necessary. I know they've expanded some existing pavilions but still.

Oh, there's no doubt it would be extremely similar to Mystic Manor.

^ I was thinking, that with how "the house" is set up (with a inner courtyard and all the 'doors' up above, one level?), maybe doing the Omnimover route might be best for this, if it was ever built. And - I like the way that the "cardboard boxes" Omnimover in the Universal Pets' "Off The Leash" attraction were spaced farther apart than the Disney parks Omnimovers. Maybe if they take away two vehicles between two (that make sense?) all the way, it might prove to be a better experience, than the riders seeing that long, ongoing never ending line of Omnimover cars ahead of them.

Just my thoughts on it..
