From the studio that brought you “The Avengers” comes a new team. They call themselves the Guardians of the Galaxy, and they’re the crew at the epicenter of one of this summer’s biggest movie events. Starting July 4, “Guardians of the Galaxy” is coming to Disney Parks with an exclusive sneak peek, offering guests an extended look at the film before it opens in theaters.

 

At Disneyland park in California, you can catch this limited time intergalactic preview in 3D with special in-theater effects at the Magic Eye Theater in Tomorrowland, where Captain EO is typically shown. Captain EO is expected to return at a later date.

 

For those of you visiting Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, you’ll be able to experience the cosmic adventure of “Guardians of the Galaxy” at the ABC Sound Studio at Disney’s Hollywood Studios presented in spectacular RealD 3D, a new dimension of entertainment.

 

“Guardians of the Galaxy” finds space adventurer Peter Quill the object of a bounty hunt after stealing an orb coveted by a treacherous villain, but when Quill discovers the power it holds, he must find a way to rally the quartet of ragtag rivals hot on his trail to save the universe.

 

“Guardians of the Galaxy,” releases in U.S. theaters on August 1, 2014.

See ya later Trashcans!

 

I am very excited for this preview!

 

Also, I don't know about others on this forum, but I really enjoy the "Preview Attractions". I think they are well put together, and the park benefits from them. The studio pays for the whole thing, and in the case of Maleficent, A Bugs Life Theater got a brand new 3D projection system and a refreshed screen. And those upgrades will remain there.

I like the previews as well. Maleficient worked really well over at DCA. The 3D DCA experience was actually better than the 3D at theater. Guardians would make a great permanent replacement for EO in the future.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (KABC) -- A fire broke out Sunday afternoon at the backstage of Disneyland, sending black smoke billowing into the air.

 

Anaheim fire responded to Gate 7 in the 1000 block of West Ball Road. Firefighters quickly knocked down the flames located outside and away from guests.

 

No injuries were reported and operations were not disrupted, Disneyland officials said.

I was catching up on my Star Wars movie news the other day, and it occurs to me that it is likely that we will see the theater become a Star Wars/Marvel movie preview center for the next few years. With a plethora of Star Wars movies in the works, mixed in with the occasional Marvel titles theatrically and on Netflix, I can see the theater not really having a dedicated show ever again.

"Local authorities interrogated Disney villains found near the scene, including Hades from the movie Hercules, who reportedly said, 'Oops! My bad.'"

Glad to hear it wasn't anything extremely damaging!

Sooooooooooo it's been over a month and a half since the Disneyland visit and I never actually got around to posting my trip report. Life got a bit hectic (new job, etc) and it slipped my mind. Sooooo, that being said, screw the trip report! Here's a Vine and Photo dump from that day! Enjoy! Also, make sure you enable sound for the Vines.

Just a tad bit crowded at 10:04am. The line to meet Anna and Elsa was over 300 minutes already. Wrapped all the way around past Big Thunder.

Two hour line for the commoners. The wonderful hidden single rider line made it a 5 minute wait, however.

Only running one side, the slower side. Still tons of fun, though!

I just found this on YouTube after a night out at the bars. I'm not sure if its the numerous Jameson shots w/ pickle juice backs, but this ride is seriously giving me flash backs. If WDW's new Snow White revamp didn't get you excited for the future of dark rides at the Disney parks, then this should turn your nipples into glass cutting diamonds. Okay, maybe its the booze, BUT STILL. Cant wait for TPR to get a nice high def POV vid!

^ Thanks for posting the video.

 

ALICE is still one of my all-time fave dark rides, one that is certainly unique among

dark rides, especially those catapillar ride vehicles.

 

I still wonder why they didn't put a copy in at say, the UK pavilion at EPCOT.

It would be a perfect fit, IMHO.

 

Great ride, one of the best.

^ It is a good ride and with the updates it looks gorgeous. I'm still sad about the really awkward outdoor section, though.

 

Oh no! The Red Queen is trying to kill us! Watch out! Through that door, quickly!

...well this is not what I expected at all.

:::what feels like 20 minutes later:::

Oh, look, a tea party...?

 

It's just a very sudden stop to the action.
